Out of curriosity, what didn't you "nail" in the first interview? I am just wondering if there's anything I should be more prepaired for...bananaface said:It's a good school.
Applying early will possibly get you an earlier interview, but won't increase your chance of getting an interview. Our admissions are not rolling. The school waits until all the apps are together to decide who to interview. Then, they do all the interviews, come together as a team, and decide who to offer admission to, who to waitlist, and who not to offer admission to. A few candidates who are very good will get selected for early interviews and possibly be offered admission earlier than the rest of the applicants. Usually that happens to less than 10 people per application cycle.
Whether or not you get an interview depends mostly on GPA, PCAT score, and recommendation strengths. Our average entering GPA is typically about 3.6-3.7, so it's not a good bet for someone with a lower end GPA, although we do have a few lower GPA candidates accepted. Last year's low was 3.09 per PharmCAS. I had a 3.69 and 99 PCAT and had to apply a second time around. You have to nail the interview, which I didn't the first time.
I can answer any specific questions if you want to post them.
I asked for feedback, but didn't really get anything that I feel is pertinent. It was my first interview. It may have just been practice. It's all about selling yourself. There is no room for modesty.beccala33 said:Out of curriosity, what didn't you "nail" in the first interview? I am just wondering if there's anything I should be more prepaired for...
