    I'm not sure yet! I need to go shopping haha. But most likely a suit or something near it =] And don't worry about only having one outfit, i'm sure a lot of people, including myself is in the same boat! =]

    Hi I looked it up for you. If you are looking for the schedule, you may find it at http://evanstransportation.com/rates_scheduled_airporter.php

    And they do not require scheduling or reservation, you just hop on the bus corresponding to the time fitting to you. They drop/pick up at the Mariott.

    Hope this helps

    Yeah, I wanted to get out of Southern California and try living on my own for once. I really miss it down there but I'm happy with my choice :thumbup:

    When you have the choice, it's really up to you. There's really no better school than the other. Check out the campus and see where you will be happy at. Gluck guys!!

    Hi,

    did anyone receive the following email before getting invitation for interview?


    "All required materials for your Touro University California College of Pharmacy applicant file have been received and your file is now complete and eligible for committee review. Should the Committee decide to invite you to attend an interview, you will be notified via email. Please note that invitations to interview may be sent at any time between now and the end of April and submission of application materials does not guarantee an interview. "

    If so , how long does it take to receive the invitation email?

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    To whom you travel, which airport is better? Is there any place cheaper than Marriot? By the way what were the questions on the interview day? Are we supposed to write an essay?

    Thanks

    Yeahh, how was the interview like?? I'm worried about the essay, will they give you an article to read about first before writing? Or are you expected to know all the details of current events in pharmacy?

    Hey. I tried calling in to schedule yesterday but no one picked up. I don't think they work on Sundays or on holidays, so I'll try calling them again on Tuesday. In the email, it says that interviews are given only on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Hope this helps.

    For the Evans shuttle do we just pay by cash when we get on the shuttle? Or do we have to buy tickets first when we get to SFO airport?

    Hey, I just called called them. She didn't give me a list of available dates though. She just told me if I wanted to do Nov16 or 17th, then I told her I couldn't make it those days, so she asked me which date I wanted specifically, and I told her I'd like to have it on the 30th, and she said it was available, so yeah. Hope this helps..

    You can pay them once you get in the shuttle, make sure to tell them the Marriot in Vallejo, not the one in Napa..

    I believe if you stay at the Marriot then they provide free shuttle to school, at least in my case. Dont book the hotel with the school code since it is more expensive than the AAA code if you have one. I only tell them i need the shuttle when i check in the hotel.

    Then Evans bus is separate from the hotel, although you can purchase the bus ticket at the hotel, it is 29$ each way. Good luck
