    Just got home from a 3-week vacation in France and got 5 letters in the mailbox from the pharm schools I applied to (out of 8).

    They are all acceptance letters, and I have to reply within 2-4 weeks.

    None of them are my 1st choice, should I wait or hold my seats?

    FYI, I have a 99 PCAT score, 3.82 GPA, no pharmacy experience.

    Could you put down an acceptance to the top choice of those 5 on it's deadline date and still wait for the number 1 school?

    What schools did you apply to and how the heck did you hear back so fast? You interviewed at all 5 schools already?

    If I were you, I would maybe pick my top 2 (if its not going to break the bank) and put deposits down to hold my seat, then wait it out to see if I get into my 1st choice school. It's always good to keep a few back-ups around... you never know what might happen!

    Hold your second choice and then, as Bananaface said, release the other seats.
