    I interviewed in march and ms. williams told us they're trying to get the committee together during spring break (last week) to review the apps starting with the jan interviews so i'm guessing they just looked over your files. You'll probably hear from them in a couple of weeks... its dreadful i'll probably have to wait til late april!

    To answer all your questions:
    My stats are not all that great, pm me and I'll tell you :oops: . However, I have 6 years of pharmacy tech experience, a lot of extra-curricular, excellent recommendations, degree in microbiology, and a dramatic personal essay.
    My first choice is Mercer because I'm here in Atlanta, I have not heard from them yet. I'm on their hold list, even though I interviewed in Sept.! That is my other and first choice, so yes if I get accepted at Mercer I will not go to Howard. $600.00 down the drain :scared:
    Rx care, I think it was you that had that "we got your application" postcard. Yes, I did receive that card as well, and I think thats a sign of acceptance! Call them and find out what your status is. That is all I got, first the postcard, then the fedex mail. They said they will send me an email once they receive my money.
    Good luck to all of you, If I can do it, anybody can do it!

    I am in Atlanta too. I had interview on March 27. I am still waiting but I have a question for you about the courses. Howard requires 10 credit hours for Physics but here we only have 4 credit hours/lecture and lab. Did you take 3 physics classes? Or 2 is good? I took only 1 last semester. I don't know if it's ok for me to take 2nd one first half summer which will end at the end of June. Do you have any idea about that? Tks.

    Just 2 physics. I didn't even notice the 10 hours of physics....
    In fact, last year they sent me a letter saying that they need to see physics I and II

    I emailed them and asked them..if u notice the card was mailed from general admissions...not the pharmacy school. It was mailed to every single applicant, regardless of the program you apply to. When a given program starts making decisions, they mail the card out to all its applicants. It seems to be a new thing.
    Yea the wait is stressful and i am mad nervous, especially with some ppl getting acceptances already. I also interviewed on the 17th, and seeing somebody on this forum who interviewed on that day too get in jolts the butterflies in my tummy:scared: .
    What state are you in?? I think 2 ppl got their letters on friday and saturday, and some say fedex while others say usps, so it makes me wonder what howard's mailing dynamics are. Well I will try to relax.......:(
