November 17th....I have an interview invite this day. Anyone else?
So I was at the ETSU interview yesterday and wanted to see what others who were there thought. Any opinions from yesterday?
If anyone stayed after for the voluntary sessions please share the gist of what was discussed?
Thank you to all!
I thought the administration was very optimistic about the direction of the pharmacy school, program, students, student opportunities while in school, and after graduation. I felt they did a great job of taking the why not ETSU thoughts and answering them head on.
I will definitely have a tough decision to make.
Look forward to hearing others experiences!
I was there, as was dr2b2014. I spoke with him briefly... apologies for being super talkative, but I was shaking in my boots.
I'll just say that the whole day was extremely impressive and leave it at that. I came in with high expectations and they were definitely met. I really hope I get an offer.
I did stay after for the residency info session with the assistant dean, which I also discussed while eating lunch with one of the faculty. I didn't learn much new information, but for 20% of ETSU's first class find residencies all over the place is pretty cool. He thinks that residencies will become more common in pharmacy and that although they don't greatly increase your salary, they make you extremely competitive for a job in your field... i.e. something that you find particularly interesting/challenging/fun.
Thank you for the feedback! It will be interesting to see how the admissions committee comes down on it. I met or knew a couple of other people who were attending or had graduated from UNC at ETSU on wednesday.
So do you and the other person you mentioned plan on ETSU being a top choice or somewhere else?
Hang in there everyone..I'm sure you'll get in!
Spoke too soon... I talked to Dean Calhoun about 45 minutes ago . I'll see y'all in JC next fall!
Thanks! I'm looking forward to it already but trying not to overlook the last semester and a half haha. I'm graduating from UNC in May but I'll be living in Winston Salem (home) over the summer. I don't know where I'll live yet, but I'd like to be close enough to campus to commute by bike.
Congrats!! I will be there too. With a class size of 80 I'm sure we'll know each other pretty well in a few years! Are you movin up from Chapel Hill? Are you living on campus or going to rent an apartment/house?
So would everyone assume that because I didn't receive a phone call I must be on hold? I can't stand waiting on the mail!!
Are you the guy I met who has the father who graduated from GA Tech? If so I was the other guy in your small group break out session. Either way congrats on getting in!

Got my call from Dean Calhoun about an hour and a half after I left the interview
I sent mine last Friday (I think) and got an email on Tuesday saying that they received it.
its unexpected but there is definitely something special about etsu. Has anyone interviewed here and not fallen in love with it?
my acceptance letter was in a small envelope...so did you get waitlisted? they pulled a lot of people off last year so dont lose hope (assuming they didnt reject you).
Interviewing Dec. 15th. Anyone know how much the deposit for the seat is?
I received a small envelope in the mail yesterday. There are some good and bad associations with this failure to matriculate. The lesson I've learned is to be more specific when verbally communicating. I think that is where I failed in marketing myself as an outstanding candidate. On a positive note, I can now quit obsessing about not knowing where I stand with this COP. Concluding, congratulations to all accepted candidates. Also, for those that have been placed on standby, I'm not sure how this will progress due to the obscure details that were provided. I hope we all find a COP that is equivalent in awesomeness to ETSU.
I am still thinking of submitting my application for ETSU and i was wondering if you don't mind giving your stats. Tat could be helpful deciding if i should go ahead and submit for this school. Thanks in advance.
Also, what did u mean by being specific during the interview?
Hey guys...I'm interviewing at ETSU on Jan. 13th! It will be my first interview EVER and I'm so so so nervous! Does anyone have any tips? Will I have to write an essay during the interview process? I'm so afraid my mind will go blank!
well that's a little burden that's been lifted...I think too hard about what to write to compose an excellent essay on the spot!
So how did you prepare for the interview? All I've done to prepare is look over the interview feedback section and think about answers I would give to all the questions posted....I wonder if that will be enough?
i got in! i'm excited....i have an interview at lucop on the 20th....since etsu and lipscomb were my top two choices i feel like i should go to the interview at least and give the school a chance...does anyone know anything about how these two schools compare (besides the obvious info that's available on their websites)....
