    i just got the most depressing news ive gotten in a long while. i got an email saying i was denied for admission to uk. i interviewed last friday and felt very confident. they told us that there were 52 spots:( remaining between 110 people. i know i was in that top 52.

    i know that the pcat hurt me which is bull****. bc i had a 3.74gpa and tons of activities and did well at interview. the pcat in no way shape or form reflects my determination, potential , or knowledge as a pharmacy student or how good of a pharmacist i will become.

    Denied by Campbell. No interview. Blah, whatever. My stats aren't that great.

    One interview so far, guess I'll see in two months.

    UK puts a lot of emphasis on the PCAT because they have so many applicants.

    Yep, last year the average was 86 for the PCAT, and as of the end of November UK had received 1056 applications. I know a few people on hold that have 90+ PCAT's and good grades.
