    I just signed a lease @ West 10 Apartments they're kinda luxury but all utilities are included it's $699/mo for a 2 bed/2 bath. The more rooms the cheaper. But rent is per bed space not per unit & im looking for someone for the second bedroom

    It says it is a closed group. Is there anyway to make it public? I tried to join.

    It's public but everyone can't be a member, once you're a member you can add other members though. I just wanted to avoid having random ppl from all over Facebook trying to join lol you're in!

    Hey guys, I have an interview tomorrow and I am a little nervous. Did any of you bring anything with you like a resume? Also, in the beginning did you shake hands with the interviewers?

    Hey good luck don't be nervous it's not as bad as you think even though it's natural to be nervous. I did not bring a resume because your supp app is your resume and they have already reviewed that. I did not shake hands with the interviewers I believe the distance and set up of the room played a part in that. However I greeted them with a smile, and left off with a very heartfelt thank you. Just be yourself and do what feels natural to you.

    Hey Guys! I interviewed on March 15 and got an acceptance letter last Tuesday to the Main Campus. I'm from out of state so any suggestions on apartments along with a roommate would be great!

    You don't really have an opportunity to shake hands. They are sitting far away from you. No, you don't need to bring a resume. I would be prepared to talk about any volunteer of pharmacy experience Iv'e had, because they told me to give an example of my volunteer experience and how it relates to pharmacy. I would know my personal statement and anything that I included on application. They are not going to ask you if you have any documents.

    We have to register for it? I just thought that signing that acknowledgement form was us stating that we understood the dates of the orientation and everything.

    Is there anyone still waiting to hear from Famu? I know of 3 people including myself that have not yet been invited for an interview. Just wondering if anyone else is in the same predicament.

    I was trying to find information on orientation and I came across this page New Student Orientation - Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University 2017
    I'm not sure if we are supposed to register for it or not. I went on previous forums and they said FAMU sends out more information about orientation at the end of summer. I'm thinking that the registration might be for FAMU in general and not the pharmacy school. They don't really send you any information and it makes it difficult to plan for anything.

    If you took a foreign language in high school then you have to send it.

    Don't be hard on yourself, they are aware that you are a student and you're nervous, its natural... You'll get in, i believe they just really want to put a face to the application as well as see if you're really interested enough to attend the interview.

    Had mine today as well. It also was pretty intense and quick. My interview was schedule for 1:30pm but I luckily got there around 1pm. I was interviewed about 10 minutes after arrival. They really rushed my process due to the fact that they were closing the campus down at 2pm due to a tornado warning. This was by far the quickest interview I've attended.
