    I've submitted my supplemental around November 2nd and received an email on Nov 14th stating my application is ready for preliminary review and verification of prereqs. Have not heard anything ever since. I'm so anxious!! :scared:

    To clarify this matter, Veronica said that applicants who have NOT been interviewed yet will hear back probably by the end of this month or next month. BUT the applicants who ALREADY have been interview will be re-reviewed at the end of march. hope this cleared any confusions!

    Does anyone know how many applicants are accepted from each interview session?

    Does anyone know where I can find a list of the on-campus housing costs for pharm students at UOP? I'm trying to decide whether it is better to live on-campus or off-campus and save some money.

    Congratulations to everyone admitted to UOP.

    The on-campus housing is most likely going to be Brookside Hall and it typically costs around $1,200 a month per person (varies with what kind of meal plan you purchase). But if your intention is to save money then I'd definitely go with off-campus housing. The only good thing about Stockton (aside from UOP lol) is that housing is cheap. Most students live in a complex just a block north of the pharmacy school called "The Cottages" and they seem to like it. On average, you can find a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom for about $825-$1000 a month. Some students also live in houses they found for rent off of Craigslist, and that seems to be a good deal as well. There is a Brookside housing community (not the same as the on-campus apartments) which is probably the best place in Stockton, where you can probably find a medium sized house to live with 2-3 other people. But if you're independent and want a place for yourself that's also doable here. 1 BR 1 BA ranges in the $550-$700 area.

    Some good places everyone should look into are:
    The Cottages
    Torcello
    Pacific Commons/River Rock
    Quail Lakes area

    Hope this helps.

    Well said! I'm one of those students that live at the Cottages. The Cottages is literally less than a minute drive to class.

    They've started emailing out acceptances from the 1/27 interview date. I just got an email from Veronica indicating that my packet would be coming in the mail.

    Edit: Got the packet in the mail today, sent out the paper to decline admission. Hopefully that opens up some spots for the people on committee hold. Good luck to everyone!

    It's okay, it's better than hearing that I was denied admission, although I'm not even sure if they are denying applicants at this point? I hope you hear some good news from admissions soon!

    I applied in August and got a letter of deferment in November. My academic update was forwarded this week. Let's hope it brings good news.

    I already had my interview in January. My application was put on hold after my interview and I won't hear back from admissions until some time in March/April I suppose.

    i had interview on Jan too.. it is scary that they are now sending rejection? did you get it via mail or email?

    Edit: just to set it straight, you were also put on hold, and won't hear back until end of March. If that is the case, I don't think it is a rejection right now for you because the rest of us are also put on hold as well

    Oh no, I knew I was put on hold. I was just saying that I wasn't sure if they have even rejected any applicants at this point or if they are just putting everyone that they don't accept on hold.

    I honestly think it's about what makes you happy and what is the best choice for you. If you like the accelerated program and got in somewhere else where you will save, say $40,000, for the same type of program that might be good for you. I think once you have your PharmD from anywhere you have just a good a chance as any other person with their PharmD at getting a job as a pharmacist. Go with what you think will work best for you in the long run! :)

    I'm on the same boat as you! Got accepted the same time you did...! Tuition is def the one downside of UOP that makes my decision waver.... I'm interviewing with Pacific in Oregon this weekend, so we'll see how that goes! I know oregon is cheaper but I also do think that you want to consider where you see yourself AFTER pharm school. I know we can make great connections/networks with local pharmacists (esp with UOP), so in my case, since I want to stay in CA, UOP has a higher up on that. But just the cost!!!! :( Nonetheless, I'm grateful that they accepted me!!!

    I just had my interview 2/24 and they had reminded us not to be stressed out if we are place on waitlist since they have their last interviews until march 9. They do not want to keep interviewing if they had their "class" set already.

    Still waiting for a reply SOON!!!!! *Stressed*

    Really, the last interview is March 9th? That means there are only 2 interview days left. I am still waiting to hear back as well. Hopefully we both hear some good news come the end of March! :oops:)
