    so for those that received the acceptance packet, who is actually planning to attend usc? im asking this because i also got accepted to westernu and UOP, already put my deposit for uop since this was the school i got accepted to first and did not know if i was going to get into usc or western at that time. But i woould like to know ur thoughts about wer ur planning to go and what made u decided taht. I feel like i like uop alot, but usc and western are great schools too and closer to my house than uop. plus the 3 yr program scares me abit and having to fit in pharmacy hours in 3 years seems like too much also. So idk, but am defitnitely honored to be part of the small group of applicants who got chosen from 123 students, so this makes me more want to attend usc.

    I received my acceptance packet today! I didn't think I'd get in bc it was my first interview & I was so nervous! I was in the AC list from the October interview.

    Good luck to all of you.

    Question about the interview...Was it more conversational (kind of like UCSD where the interviewer just looked at my supplemental and came up with questions off the top of his head)? Or was it more typical straight and answer where the interviewer just went down his list of questions? Any weird curveball questions or just typical interview questions?

    The interview was conversational. The questions asked were typical interview questions (for me), but it could be different for others depending on who you get as your interviewers.

    Mine was straight off a list of questions. They did not have my file in front of them. Expect follow up questions and unexpected questions as well.

    Be prepared for ANYTHING basically.

    I think the hardest one for me was.... besides retail and outpatient pharmacy, what other areas of pharmacy have you explored or would be interested in?

    That was a little difficult for me because I never really thought about it.

    I have a question. I also received an acceptance to USC. If I'm currently taking a non-required class for Spring semester and would like to withdraw the class, would they revoke my acceptance? I took the class to just help me prepare in the future. Thanks!

    If it's a non-required class they probably won't care but it's a good idea to just email or call them and ask. What class is it btw? If I were you I would just stick to it for personal enrichment/fun =) Unless it's costing you a lot...

    It's Anatomy that's why I thought its going to be helpful. I'll try to call the admission to make sure before doing anything. Thanks!

    Is USC your first choice? So far there are only 75 people being accepted and I know a few that are waiting for ucsd or ucsf. Hopefully, they will give up their spots soon...

    yes it is! i don't want to make excuses for why i couldn't perform my best during the interview, but i really hope my interviewer didn't deduct too many points for being extremely nervous :( i straight up told him that i was nervous too. i really hope i can get in this cycle!!!!!!

    I wonder if they take into consideration that the applicants who interview in march will be "somewhat" more prepared than the october applicants because they either have had interviews from other schools or they're more prepared and mentally ready compared to the fall interviews. either way, hopefully they'll accept more!! :xf:

    well, i hope you get an acceptance in the next couple of months! waiting these past five months have been close to torture for me... lol. but, i got my packet in the mail today, so i'm relieved.

    i think they've accepted ~35 of those who interviewed in october, so it would make sense that they would accept more sometime later. i think it would be 10-20 more.

    I just found out that I have been accepted. (Interviewed on January 21 11:00AM session). I'm on the east coast, so I haven't gotten the mail yet. But I gave them a call and was told I was admitted.
