Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
How did you manage that?
I left anesthesia for various reasons and have had to reapply through the match, and I am worried about not matching.
How did you end up with a prematch? Pitt didn't even interview me (although I did interview at Allegheny and loved it). I would have loved to avoid this whole process again.
The program may be interested in him more than you. Allegheny is a solid program too.
I'm in a similar boat. I'm a family intern looking to switch, and I didn't get any outside the match offers. The rundown I got from the places that I've interviewed is as follows: Temple has a brand new program director, and he seems a bit gunshy about offering outside the match; Jefferson is pretty traditional and apparently doesn't go outside the match; Drexel was probably willing to, but I had a bad interview experience which bumped them down on my list; Hershey had already taken one person outside the match at the time of my interview and didn't want to take any one else for fear of hurting their "street cred" (those were about the exact words that the program director used); Both Pennsylvania Hospital and UMDNJ-RWJ only have one opening for next year and wanted to fill it in the match. So that's the impression I got from where I interviewed. As for ERAS favoring the 4th year students, I'd have to disagree. I did not fell as though I was at any disadvantage.
Good luck in the match.
Just wanted to say goodluck to all the fourth years! I hope you all match on Monday, and get your first choice on Thursday!
perhaps i won't be some calm in a year when i'm going through this, but i hope everyone matching this week is able to relax and enjoy things. nothing you do now, including worrying, is going to help. thursday is going to come in due time. best of luck to everyone, and i'm looking forward to seeing the results posted in this thread later in the week.
