    I wasn't asking about your classes for pre-reqs...Im wondering how long after you
    submitted your PharmCas, and supplemental app did it take
    for NM to send you a confirmation email of all application materials received?

    I received an interview invitation Dec 19th. My interview is Jan 21st. They informed me that I am lacking two classes of pre-reqs and sent mock questions for the essay test.

    Hi all,

    I received an invite to interview Jan 27 for the Feb 11th interview. I live out of state and was told that since I received such short notice I could get on the next interview date, which is March 24. Their interview dates seem spaced out in comparison to other schools. Hope this helps.

    My Interview went extremely well! They made me feel very comfortable and seemed to be really concerned for the well-being of their students. Great program opportunities as well! Out-of-state tuition is only for the first year and then you can apply for in-state.

    Had my interview on Jan 21st and felt like everything went well. It is Feb 20th and haven't heard anything back yet. Got another interview for two different schools in March. The other schools are definitely my second choices, so I hope to hear from UNM one way or another before then.

    I've heard such conflicting stories about admissions. For example, some people have told me that getting interviewed on the first day of interviews means your chances are higher of getting in. Others tell me it doesn't matter. I've also heard you can find out if you get accepted or not a week after your interview or all the way until late summer!

    If anyone has gotten a reply by now about being accepted or not, I would like to know. I will notify everyone on here when and if I here something.

    Thanks

    Good to see the admission process has begun for UNM COP! And best of luck to everyone applying this round!!!

    I am a current first year pharmacy student and can tell you that I am SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY that I chose UNM for pharmacy school. I got into another school but fell in love with this program during my interview and could only see myself at at UNM. The faculty and staff are great and the students are all very friendly as well. It is definitely an inspiring atmosphere to be in for school! Even if I may sound a bit biased, even our out-of-state students absolutely love it here and don't regret their decision. It's because they have seen how innovative the pharmacy practice has become here in NM and they are already considering staying here in state for after the complete schooling. (I could seriously keep going on about this but I'll spare you the details).

    To those of you who are instate, it really does not matter when you have your interview. I had friends who were in the initial round get accepted the week after their interview but I also had a few friends have to wait until May (even though they were in one of the primary rounds) to hear back. It all depends on how many prerequisite classes you have pending. The more you have pending (especially science ones) then the longer you will have to wait....so don't stress if you don't hear back right away!

    Speaking of interviews, don't go into them unprepared! They make up for about 40-60% of your application and could really either make or break your case for why you should get in. I recommend going to UNM's Career Services for their mock interviews if you have any anxiety because they really helped prepare me with a list of potential interview questions for UNM graduate schools.

    Good luck to everyone applying and hope to see you all next year at COP. :xf::thumbup::cool:

    I'm Lanh Phan from Arlington, Texas. UNM CoP class of 2016. So excited to meet everyone else!! I am moving to Albuquerque in May because I am transferring for work. I found a place to stay already. It's about 20+ minutes away from school, but hopefully traffic isn't too bad.

    Yup. I'm taking stats and the communications elective right now. These are the last two classes I need to complete. What classes are you taking right now? Have you taken Biochemistry 423? Too bad the Lobos lost yesterday in the NCAA tournament. I was hoping they would get to the sweet 16. Peace.

    So far my semester has been a breeze. 2 classes has been a nice change of pace. You do any volunteering anywhere? Are you a pharmacy technician? Best of luck to you tomorrow!

    Hey cuejaytee, Greenchile posted this a couple of posts above you; maybe it can provide some answers:
    "To those of you who are instate, it really does not matter when you have your interview.

    Hi guys, I applied a little later and so my interview is next Saturday. Are any of you guys out of state that are accepted, because I know that they give preference for in-state students and that they most likely take in less out-of-state students (according to their pharmcas stats).

    Thanks :)

    Best of luck to you weird0! I am not out of state but I do know of two people from out of state who have been accepted to UNM this year (One from Texas the other from California). During my interview I met a 2nd year Pharmacy Student who was from Washington State. Something that might help you out is that last year 124 people were interviewed and 96 of them were offered admission. I heard through the grapevine that the total number of people interviewed this year is similar to this total, but don't hold me to that as there are no official stats yet. Point is, you have been offered an interview which is VERY important and you are very close! Congratulations again!

    Hi Speedmaster,

    Thank you so much for the info! I got accepted to Roseman University, and I almost cancelled my trip/interview, but I looked at their stats and I was like maybe I should try it out. :laugh: The only thing is, I am flying out there the day before the interview (April 20), which happens to be my birthday! :xf:
    I also wondered how quickly people received their acceptance. My deposit for Roseman is due on the 25th, so I think I'll have to shell the money before I hear back. :idea:

    :clap::clap:Congratulations on your acceptance. I think you are really going to enjoy the interview process at UNM:thumbup:. I had my interview on Feb 11th and received my acceptance letter on Feb 18th. I'm certain that this is as quick as anyone would hear back from UNM but maybe I'm wrong. It varies from person to person from what I have seen and heard. Some hear in a week others wait a month or more. Happy early Birthday!:hardy::hardy:

    In the package I received in the mail it says I am missing numerous pre-req classes that I already took! Was wondering if anyone else had this problem?

    Yeah, I have the same problem. But, I don't think it will be a problem. I think you just have to call them and let them know that you've taken them so they can recheck your transcripts. I will be calling them in a couple of days. :)
