    Good to hear. I know what you mean. I went to the interview last year when it was 18 degrees, but liked UNE so much I decided to give up my seats for other schools. Which group were you in? My friend and I got the first group, so we only had 2 female candidates. You guys seemed nervous and more high strung than we did last year. I remember laughing and talking the whole way through while waiting for my interview last year. It's getting harder every year I guess. However,first cycle always has a very high acceptance rate, since it's a small group compared to 60-70 student groups for later interview cycles. Good luck!

    The earlier your interview slot, the BETTER!

    Please eat at Miyake sushi for me. That place is the bomb. They open at 5:00pm and all the tables are reserved. that's how awesome it is.

    Is Isaac organizing everything this year again? He is tall. Very tall.

    It looks like UNE still has a special place in someone's heart. Or is it Miyake sushi has a special place in someone's stomach? :biglove:

    LOL. Are you 2 done with your finals yet? I am dying overhere. Hey JJ, there was a girl in my tour group who got accepted for Midwestern Chicago. Her name is Allyson, Kidda tall with blond hair and looks very young. Oh and they will open a sushi buffet close to Maine Mall in Jan or so :)

    Hey, you too for still checking this ;)
    How've you been?

    And Miyake was amazing. I will have never had better sushi than there. haha

    Is she c/o 2016? There isn't an Allyson in my 2015 Class... as far as I know?
    MWU's been done with finals. We're on Week 3 of our Winter Quarter (10-week quarter system). Keep hanging on! Just take it one thing at a time and breathe :) Also... STAY WARM!

    Gotta go to my community rotation! <3 miss you guys

    I went to the interview on Dec. 9th. The interview was more like a conversation to me. The area is nice and the people are extremely friendly. I will definitely go here if I get accepted.

    Good luck. I am gonna ask Ann Marie tomorrow to see if they decided on acceptance yet. They've been busy with our finals though.
    I created a group for CO 2016 on FB UNE College of pharmacy CO 2016 https://www.facebook.com/groups/329782187032202/. Have fun getting to know each other before school starts next year.
    Guess you guys have to hang tight. Ann Marie said the acceptance letters won't come out till next week. But for sure before the holiday, so hopefully you will get your presents in time for xmas.

    Not much they asked why i wanted pharmacy and the rest was just basically a conversation we ended up talking about how he went to harvard and how we might have rotations in Ghana and what not.. but im still waiting on the decision.. i got into ACP and Shenandoah already so im not too worried at this point

    They will send you an email and a regular letter in the mail, whichever comes first. The Dean will call you before school starts to say congrats, but mostly to make sure that you are still coming.

    People should hear back by the end of this week, since they're already done with our grades and stuff for this semester.
    Good Luck.

    You got Dr. Guvench? He's super cool. He doesn't look like one, but the guy is wickedly smart. Were you one of the 2 girls in the first group with me and a female Mainer? Deposits for UNE is 2000 so think carefully, since you have other offers

    I meant to say the phone call or email before the letter. Because I think they will call accepted applicants and mail out letters for not accepted. Was that how they do it?

    Congrats on your acceptances!
    Now you can start the harder part: deciding which school to attend. If you are missing some classes, Isaac will start bugging you soon to make sure you finish the classes lol.
    If you're on wait list, don't feel bad. They pull people from wait list like crazy every year, but you have to wait till June to find out :(.

    That's probably Patrick or Justin. Justin is bond.

    Husson does let you know 1-2 weeks after the interview if u r accepted. My classmate's friend got in. You can email and check with them, but make sure to be professional about it.

    so if it's at 8 am I guess I'll be seeing you there. I've been to portland twice, the city is small, but quite beautiful IMO, I'd love to live there for a few years.

    Good luck and hope you are ready for the cold. It will be more than likely single digit temp. For the morning section, P2 and P3 will be your tour guides. You can check the interview feedbacks on SDN or last year thread for questions.

    The only students I know in my class who don't have their 4 year degree coming in are the ones in UNE's pre-pharm program. That's being said, it's not impossible to get in it without a BA or BS. If you have some cash, you can apply just for the heck of it. I think a 4 year degree would give you a much better chance (unless your Pharmcas GPA is high and a good Pcat score) and applying early would also help greatly (application opens in June). Good luck.

    I accepted a interview 2/17. I'm excited this is my top choice school. Does anyone have any insight what to expect for the interview?


    I don't have a degree, and I'm applying from Texas. Granted I'm returning student with work experience, and voleenter work.

    My pcat was weak: 53 ( but math, bio, chem where good.... vocab and reading pulled my score down)
    pharmcas gpa 2.9 (bad from my early days in college)
    but math and science are 3.9 ( after returnng to school I did well)
    I have a lot of research experience, and have received a few research scholarships, research posters, and been on papers published.

    keep the hope! UNE looks awesome, I can't wait to visit it, single digit weather and all :cool:

    Dear Friends,

    I found your e mail address on the web and I need some pieces of information from you.
    I would like to study medecine in a foreig college, maybe USA or UK, but I would prefer to prepare me to the ammissio exam attending a pre medical course, in order to be able to prepare my self for the best to the exam.
    Could you suggest me the name of some association that organises pre-medical courses to the access to the college?
    I will be waiting for your aswer,

    thanks in advance,

    Best,

    pollon

    You should do your own little research, starting with the basics, on UNE for the interview, because they do ask why you pick/like UNE or "what do you know about UNE?". As for the board exams: NAPLEX or Laws or both? NAPLEX is pretty much self-learn. They teach you what you need to know in school, then you study by yourself with the materials through out the years. As for the Laws, your location said California, so I am not sure if you want to go back after grad. UNE professors will give you the info needed for Maine Laws. If you come back to CA, you'll be on your own (though the Laws are pretty much similar). I think that's the same everywhere you go for COP except CA schools. We can go back to CA to do IPPE during Summer, and some APPE for our 4th year, but you're responsible for finding the sites. Good luck.

    I'm excited about my une interview. I have heard it is research school, is that true? Do they have opportunitys for the pharmacy students to conduct research, or during summer off time help out professors in there field of research?

    Thank you

    Yup. There are 4-5 professors doing their own research upstairs with the helps of students, though it's not easy to get their fellowship. The Dean of academic affairs also sometimes sends out research fellowships and scholarship through the school year, but some of them are not available to P1. Good luck.

    I know this is really early to ask, but I am thinking about renting out my room for next year (living alone in a 2 bedrooms is getting a bit too expensive for me). If you're interested, please let me know. I am Vietnamese, male, 28, not really active in social event except for the internet. I was thinking about sharing it out this semester, but I don't want to take chances with people on craigslist, since I need time to study and don't want any partiers in the apt. I can give you more details if you want. I think rooming with someone from a different year may work out better, since we have to share bathroom and kitchen and having different schedules would decrease any wait time for those. Plz leave me a message if interested.

    Good luck tomorrow. It will be a mixture of freezing rain and snow, but at least it won't be too cold (30-40s). I saw a couple people walking around checking out the school today. Whoever you are, we noticed you but didn't want to freak you out by saying hi when you were spying lol. Have fun tomorrow. You'll do great.
