    That's exactly when mine was mailed out too and I haven't received the supplemental email either. :( I've had theirs done for 2 weeks now but I can't send it without the approval email. Argh..

    Do you mind share your stats? Do you have your bachelor degree already?

    For my stats,

    I have a BS degree in biochemistry.
    Overall: 3.05 (PharmCAS)

    BS degree in biochemistry as well. :D
    Overall: 3.3
    Junior & Senior year cumulative GPA: 3.7-3.8
    Science GPA: 3.5
    PCAT: 79% composite (I'm retaking next month)

    I know Touro doesn't require PCAT but I talked to one of the representatives and they said they'll still look at it if it's there. How many schools are you applying to? I'm applying to 11 to cast a wide net.

    wow, everyones stats are looking really good. Anyone completed their applications yet and just waiting for interview invites?

    I want to add to my question, has anyone finished answering the questions on the supplemental yet?
    The spaces provided give a 400 character count limit for the smaller questions, but it does mention you can use additional typed paper as an extension. However, the admission committee only want concisely composed responses. Is this pretty much telling us to only use 400 character count? Sorry if this is obvious to some people, I'm just a little confused.

    I submitted mine two days ago after the email finally came. I only used the spaces provided and kept my essay pretty concise. I think it's important to keep it short because no one really wants to read that much stuff. Besides, I think it says a lot about you if you can get the point across quickly and efficiently.

    I accessed their supplemental app through the school's website and had it done before I got the email that said I could proceed further. My stats aren't outstanding so I have to show them I'm serious in other ways. If only I had a time machine so I can go slap my irresponsible freshman self. T_T

    ^ but your science gpa is sooo good !!! and your overall gpa isn't bad either, you have nothing to worry about :)

    I wish I could go back and redo junior year, I had a lot of family trouble so I missed class and didnt do so well. But I guess I can explain that to them on the supplemental....

    Just making sure, so we just type everything in the blank boxes, print out the whole supplemental and then mail it?

    Thanks :)

    so my answer came out to be like 2 sentences longer than the allowed space on the supplemental. To attach an additional paper, do I just type whatever fits in the allowed space, and then the rest in an additional paper then?

    thanks!

    I'm not sure, I would either contact them and ask or simply have the whole paragraph on a separate sheet of paper instead of just 2 sentences.

    I thought I was pretty early in applying, but guess not lol.
    I am waiting until next week to contact Touro NY about my application, and I am submitting my Touro CA this week.

    Having vegas sandwiched between these two weeks will make submission harder, but oh welllsss :thumbup:

    that's it! They changed the instructions to added couple more bullet points. I'm not sure if it was because i kept bugging them about certain things like it shows up differently on a mac vs pc and other stuffs :cool:

    make sure you put lastfirstpharmcasID.pdf

    I wonder if you submit now we will be in the same interview group. you never know, good luck!!

    I sent my supplementals about 3 weeks ago via mail, but I still haven't received anything back. They haven't cashed my check either.

    The same goes to Touro NY.
    Did anyone else get an interview? I'm worried :(

    I am trying to finish my supp for Touro NY. But for the prereq form, my chem class has separate grades for 3 lectures and 3 labs (so 6 courses in total) but there's only space to list 5 courses. Anyone know what I should do?

    I emailed Touro NY but no one's replying :mad:

    urghh i just realized that Touro NY requires 4.5-6 quarter hours of Biochem, and I only took one biochem class so I only have 4 quarter hours. Does the .5 even matter? I don't think I can fit one more biochem into my schedule ..

    are you refering to touro CA or NY. CA is relatively good with their communications. If you contact Crisselle Garrido, she will usually email you back within a day or two. NY is a whole different story...:laugh:

    They emailed me once my supplemental app was in. Getting a email reply from them can take between 1-4 days in my experience. Did you email them the supp or did you mail it in?
