Hi guys! I didn't see a thread for the upcoming class. I have an interview coming up, and I'm curious to see if anyone on here has had a recent interview, and have been accepted.

How long did it take for the admissions to let you know if you were accepted or not? Are you required to attend church service? Was the essay typical like other pharmacy schools? Are the interview groups big (20+ people). From what I understand, there is a group discussion and an individual interview with a faculty member. The group discussion question, is it just about current events? I looked at the feedback section, and there is little information.

Thank you in advance!

Oh and Usually there is about 20 people that come to the interview from what my friend tells me that currently goes there. But I had the very first interview so there were only a few people.

I interviewed in October, and was accepted via phone call 5-6 days after.

Church service is optional.

Essay was nothing difficult.

Interview groups vary, mine had 6 people, some will have 20+.

Overall it is a very laid back and easy interview process, with extremely nice faculty members.

Most likely going to this school. The school and faculty are amazing, and I love the teacher to student ratio. Anyone else going?

Hello, I actually interviewed this past Friday with about 14 others. This was my 3 interview, and I will say it when alot better then others, and I really think it was Mrs. Jones and her staff that made the difference. Such a relaxed setting. I am not from the east or south, so the idea of going to Harding was daunting; but with how great the staff, curriculum, students are I am really thinking about it. I have 3 more interview as of now, but Harding really moved up the ranks for me.
As far as the Essay goes, it was good, not some crazy ethical question, just a point blank question about you. Nicer than others
The interview was great paired of with 4 others for a group, then a one on one, followed by a q and a with the students. Which was good, except some of us did not engage the students directly and talked amongst themselves, which I know the students did not appreciate, and it made it hard to let them open up.
So my advice to others who read this, is to have questions ready for the students and the Advisors; do your HOMEWORK! and really take the time to get to know the students, identify with them and decide if these are the Peers/University/Class you want to be associated with!

I was kinda bummed not to here back yet, but I know they said 2 weeks and with how busy they are and the storms it might take that long! Crossing my fingers!:confused:

Alternate status/waitlisting is a softer way of being denied. It basically means that you're on a list of students that will only be accepted if enough of their preferred and accepted students decline their acceptances. There may still be some hope, but depends mostly on how many accepted students decline their positions, and how far down you are on the waitlist.

I got alternate status as well. It's quite disheartening, but, you just have to hope for the best and/or try harder next year.
