    I interviewed on Jan 12th as well...and have not heard anything yet. The letter comes via email right? Is that the case no matter what the admission decision is?

    I heard from the current pharmacy students that you receive an e-mail if you are accepted and an official acceptance letter by mail later on. If you are refused or tabled, you only get a letter by mail. Sighs...I haven't heard back either. Do post here once you get the results. :oops:

    Hey, you need to submit a document of part A OR a document of part B + a document of part C. I had the same problem a few days ago and that was what they told me. Good luck.

    Actually, at my interview, they didn't say anything about e-mail or mail. They just said I would get the results in three weeks, either accepted, refused or tabled.

    Ahahahaha...that's what I've been doing at home, during class and work. To be honest, I've been worried since last week. I thought I got refused since I didn't receive an e-mail at all. I'm glad there's still hope for me.

    Hi everyone, just a few question about application for UHCOP.
    So if you did not attend UH for your pre-pharmacy years, you have to complete a transfer application along with pharmcas and supplemental applications as weell. so 3 applications total right?
    and if you have not completed all the pre requisites, do you have till the end of spring or end of summer to complete it?
    Thank you :)

    You do not need to complete a transfer application (like UT), all you have to do is submit your application through Pharmcas and $150 supplemental fee and documents. I believe you have until spring to complete all math and science classes and summer to complete non-science ones. :)

    Thank you for your quick reply. your answer is based on experience or just guessing. cause I spoke with one of the people at the admission office and they said I have to complete the transfer app as well. Also I still need a writing course, I tried to call them many times they never give me an answer.

    Based on my experience. I complete my prerequisites at another college and only submitted my Pharmcas along with my supplemental. I also interviewed already. Unless if they made a mistake somewhere and forgot to ask for my transfer application?!

    They said that some of the Jan 12th acceptances have been already send out many days earlier. They aren't giving a clear-cut answer as to whether the adcom have met or not...The waiting sucks!

    Really? What the heck? I was told the adcom met yesterday. I find it odd that they would send out some acceptances and not all at the same time. I guess I'll have to start preparing for my other interviews then.

    The job market may be saturated in traditional markets but the field of pharmacy is constantly evolving. At UH COP, we've learned that the demand is shifting toward pharmacists taking on a more clinical and primary care roles. Pharmacists are fighting for their rights to be recognized as healthcare providers and to be reimbursed for certain services that only apply to current recognized providers. Signing bonuses may be a thing of the past but overall as a system the government and businesses are looking to streamline costs. By the time we graduate, pharmacists may very well expand into more roles and the demand will be there.

    As for school rankings, the pharmacists I've worked with from UT, UH, TSU, and others have all told me that it is hardly a consideration. If you pass the boards, you will obtain a Pharm.D. regardless of the school. Reputation, strength of the school network, the impression you give your preceptors while you're on rotations, and opportunities provided by the location of school are much more important in my opinion. This topic has been discussed extensively on SDN such as here and many others if you are interested in learning more about people's opinions on rankings in the job market. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=785271

    When was your interview? I had mine on Jan. 21st and I haven't heard back yet.
    Actually, has anyone here who had a Jan. 21st interview heard back from UH?

    So it seems that many of y'all waited almost exactly 3 weeks. Looks like those on Jan. 21st will most likely hear from UH next week.

    Anyway, congratulations everyone who got in!!

    By the looks of it, they do not send out all the acceptance letters at the same time. Don't lose hope just yet! Good luck to everyone.

    Nope! I'm going to wait until the end of the day, if not I'll call them again tomorrow. We do have a little less than 2 weeks left to answer apparently, so I'm not going to stress about it...yet. :D
