    Hello!

    Has anyone received any interview requests yet from any Pharmacy Schools? (Early decision OR Regular decision)?

    If so, list what schools!

    Good luck to everyone!

    I think I submitted on Aug 2nd/3rd. I received a call for an interview a day or two later. Interview isn't until September though.

    Wow only 2-3 days later? PharmCAS was able to process your GPA that quickly?

    Yes, I guess because not a lot of people had submitted yet. I'm also waiting for the PCAT score to show. Wingate had me fax an unofficial score to them.

    Hi there, I was wondering for them to verify your GPA, does this happen after you input all your courses manually or after they receive all your transcripts?

    Has anybody who took July 21/22 PCAT had their scores reported to PharmCAS? Pearson said they sent the scores on August 9th, but there is still nothing in my file. I keep getting emails saying my application is incomplete.. :arghh:

    May I ask what your stats are and when did you submit your PharmCAS application and supplemental?

    I have a 3.91 GPA and a 97th percentile composite PCAT score. I have done multiple years of volunteering and shadowing and I was a pharmacy technician this summer.
    UIC received my supplemental application on September 6th and I just found out about my interview yesterday morning

    My major (non science) GPA was a 3.7, cumulative GPA was a 3.4 and my science GPA was a 3.4! No PCAT score, because I have a Bachelors degree, so that requirement was waived. Good luck, my friend! Roseman has a very hands on and impressive program. I'm excited! Hope you get an interview! I'm sure you'll be fine!

    The writing portion isn't that bad. Simple question for example; describe one of your qualities? Something like that. Let me know if you need anything. I am a P1 at RU. Best of luck!

    Even if you have a low PCAT, you might still be invited for interview. It's not a big deal.

    Good luck!

    Is PCAT not required if you already have a bachelors? I was in the middle of studying for the PCAT in late Oct. Is the PCAT requirement waived for majority of the schools or are there only a handful that don't require it?

    I've seen most schools require upper level biology courses such as microbio, physiology, anatomy, etc. Does anyone have a list of schools that shows their requirements? I know pittsburgh doesn't have anything required in upper level biology courses. Wondering if there are more schools around that do the same.

    PCAT is not required at Roseman if you have a bachelors. About 10 prerequisite classes were required, however. If I recall correctly:

    Anatomy
    Physiology
    Gen Chem 1
    Gen Chem 2
    Organic Chem 1
    Organic Chem 2
    Calculus
    Microbiology
    Speech
    English Composition 1


    Other schools, it will depend. Not all schools waive the PCAT requirement.

    Thanks! Appreciate it. Ill keep you in mind for sure! How has your experience been thus far? Particularly curious about the exams. Have any trouble passing with that 90% and above?

    Got it. Also, I am almost complete with my Pharmcas application. How long does the verification process take? And is it too late to be applying late october?

    It depends on the volume of applications coming in. Mine only took a week to be verified, but I submitted my application literally the day Pharmcas opened back in July. October I assume
    Is one of the more high volume months, so plan for 4-5 weeks. It could be less, but it's always better to be prepared for the worst.

    Not too late, in my opinion. I got an interview last year and I applied in October.

    Hopefully! How long did it took you to get the interview invite after you submitted all your apps? I haven't heard anything yet
