    More than likely that the last group will be 60 people divided into 2 groups. There is a rumor that they are having a hard time filling up the seats for class of 2016. The FB group actually has P1, P2, and P3 in it so not many seats were taken (but that may not be the correct number of people accepted, cuz I saw 1 person from the West Coast and we have 20 plus CAs in our P1). Not sure the reason why they have a hard time filling the seats, since they have 100 more applications this year (maybe they decide to pick and choose this year). So don't be discouraged if you're in the last interview cycle. Good luck.

    Haha. that's because I created the group,not the school. Those P3, P2, P1 are either tourguides for the interview or want to sell their books/ rent out their place or more importantly to answer questions of getting ready for school in the fall. Good luck.

    I brought my luggage (1 duffle bag/giant gym bag) with me to the interview. It stayed in our waiting room during our interview and writing session where we talked to other students and had refreshments and snacks. They told us to bring our belongings with us during the tour, so I was carrying it around the whole campus tour, by the end we ended up coming back to that same room so I actually could have left it there the whole time. Then again, I had my macbook pro in there so I felt more comfortable taking it with me during the tour.

    I rented a car so not sure where you can put your luggage. Though we leave our MACs in the library basement and go out to eat all the time, and they're still there. people are pretty nice here.
    Check the weather channel for next week. It seems that it will be hot next week. Dress code for Skirt is for it to be knee length though.

    I'm wearing pants.....i don't think they can make you wear a skirt so it shouldn't matter. Plus i don't think u can go wrong with pants as long as they aren't too tight.:laugh:

    I wore a business dress ( I hope it looked professional enough ) and it was pretty cold!! Of the interviews I've been to, everyone else always wore pants. The pants are probably more comfortable, but I'm sure whatever you feel best in will work! :)

    hmmm I've already been accepted and paid my deposit to a different school and I just found out I got pulled off of the waitlist at UNE from my Jan 27th interview. I only have until Sunday to respond back with my decision. I really enjoyed UNE's program, campus, and love the city of Portland.
    I'm just kind of worried about how rotations of IPPE & APPE work there. If there are current students who can elaborate how UNE works the IPPE & APPE that would be very helpful. From what I gathered I understand IPPE are in the summer and APPE are the last year. My issue is from the interview they made it seem we are responsible for making a list of sites and setting things up and the school picks one of your choices. It just makes me nervous not being from the area how to go about doing that. How do we come about in establishing an IPPE site. Any information would be greatly appreciated and very helpful in making my decision.

    Tuition per year is around 30k give or take 1-2 thousand. The deposit to hold your seat is 1000 when you get accepted and 1000 afterwards.

    Actually tuition will be raised to almost $34,000 next year for tuition alone plus fees. My first year was about 38,000 after fees (that's without health insurance of 3K). So I guess it will be around 40K for you guys for the first year.
    Good luck tomorrow.

    Thank You! I got waitlisted at my top choice. UNE was #2 on my list.After my interview I really loved UNE even more. I don't know how i would feel if the other school accepts me later. But i'll cross that bridge IF it comes up later.

    Also others said if you get waitlisted not to worry so hang in there!:xf: I hope you get in. I don't know if i met you during the interview where r you from?

    This is probably late and you may have turned down UNE, but for IPPE and APPE, if you stay in Maine to do your rotations, they will have everything set up for you. Usually it's done by lotto for the sites (you enter in the sites you want, and some sites are very popular with limited space, so they have to do lotto for that reason). If you want to do your rotation in your state (I am doing my rotation in CA), you will have to find your own site (i.e calling the place you want to go to, if they are ok with you being there -which they should since you work for free- the school will call them to interview and set up the rotation for you. All you need to do is to find a place and give the school their phone number and call the site later for your schedule if it's approved by the school. It's not that had to do for community site, but for hospital is a little tricky. Then again, if you stay in Maine, everything's done for you. The only thing I don't like about UNE's rotations is that you have to work full time with no pay for 4 weeks for IPPE during summer, instead of spreading it out throughout the semester (working 1-2 days per week), but then it gives you more time to study.
    I got accepted to other schools, but turned them down. I can't say that I am regretting picking UNE (hate driving in the snow though).

    Yeah I emailed Isaac and he confirmed what you said. I unfortunately just gave up my spot today as my first deposit was due today. I really loved the school from what I got out of it thus far. The tuition was a huge deal breaker for me. I'm attending an out of state pharmacy that's private as well and only costs 29k per year compared to the 36k at UNE plus extra cost of living in Portland. I might not be living in the wonderful area of Portland but the schools pharmacy programs were very comparable.

    So quick question to those p1 p2 p3 students. I know everyone has said over and over again to get a place within walking distance of the school is it because there is no parking? Do most students live within waking distance?

    it is a 2 bedrooms 1 bath apt with the price is $1050 including heat and hot water. we will be paying for the electric bill, internet also. there is not laundry machine on site but she told me that the laundromat he walking distance from the apt. If we get that apt we will not need a car b/cit is less than a min from the campus which is great considering the winter time. I am going there the first week of July to look at the apt. If you give me your email i can sent you the pictures that i have so far.
    Thanks
