Applied in early February (due to January PCAT).
Interview letter around March.
Interview date around April.
Acceptance letter early to mid May.


GPA: Science/Math 3.9 Overall 3.7
PCAT: 94
Experience at time: 6 months with CVS

B.B.A. Management Information Systems from UH College of Business.


Other: TSU was the only school I was able to apply to because the January PCAT was too late in the admissions process. I think UH has since changed their policy on accepting January scores... to my misfortune, one year too late. Average PCAT scores at my school are around the 60s, from the people I've talked to, and it's very political here.

I over prepared. It was very laid back. I would suggest looking at all of the interview feedbacks. I wasn't asked anything that I hadn't previously seen on those feedbacks. You cant really prepare for the essay or group project. Just try not to stress out!

The interview for UH was so fun. I had a blast. I was like Aggie, I over-prepared and almost psyched myself out. I really enjoyed the interview, and my suggestion to everyone else is to just relax and have fun.

Hi evry1 that's been interviewed and will be interviewed for UH!

I'm curious to know what do y'all think about questions on the interview questionaire and the essay that should submitted prior to your interview for UH? Which essay topic did you choose?

I think they were harder than I expected which makes me really nervous about the real interview....

My boyfriend just got an interview invite for Incarnate Word. Is this their first set of interviews this year?
Any Incarnate Word pharmacy students on here know how the program's first year is going? Do you like the school so far?

Hey,
Admission is contingent upon finish your prerequisites with a C or better. Does the same apply to classes that are not a part of the prerequisites?

He received his interview invite by email and he turned in his application at the beginning of January. I am not sure about his stats, it depends on if UIW averages classes that are retaken or take the highest. He said 3.38 pre-pharmacy gpa if they average.

I just received my very first interview letter from U of H on March 6, 2007. The interview is at 9:15am March 30, 2007 and will last 4 1/2 hours. Wow, Im so excited! Who else is going to be there with me?

I gotta say, Im a bit nervous about the 30 minute critical thinking and 45 minute discussion. Is this just another weed out process or what?

just got invited for interview at Tech. I finished applying in early january but harcourt took until february the 28th to have my PCAT scores sent out. Hopefully i'm not interviewing so late that there's hardly any spots left making my interview statistically pointless.

If you had interviewed with UH on 3/2, have you heard back from them yet?
This Friday will be 2 weeks since the interview date and I heard from some people w/ earlier interviews that UH responds within 2 weeks...But..since this week is spring break, what happens?

Does anyone know how soon they should respond back? I really need to know so I can decide whether to go to interviews for other schools or not. Waiting is no fun!

:( :( My friend turned in her application late Jan, got interview during spring break ( the March the 13th) ... Other friends also told me that at UH, usually it takes 2-3 wks to find out if u get the interview or not. If u do, it will be via email, if u dun, it'd take longer... by mail. For personal reason, UH was the ONLY school i applied to and I'm really freaked out rite now :(
