    Hello,

    I just applied to NOVA as an international student (kind of late :(, last minute decision). Its been three weeks since I submitted the application and not a word from them yet on the status. What makes me so mad :mad: is that no one ever answers the phone there.

    >If you have applied to this program, have you heard anything back from them since you submitted the application?

    Where in India are you from?
    I've submitted LOR from professor & pharmacists. And yes, I've also applied to Western U. Those are the only college that I'm aware of which have post-bacc program for international students. How about you? Were you able get your LOR from the dean? I think western u will be conducting their IPBP exams & interviews end of April (dates have been posted on their website but I haven't received an invitation from them yet).
    Did you apply to Western U? If you did have you heard anything from them?
    Do you mind sharing your stats (GPA, etc...)

    go4it,

    I just spoke with NOVA admissions office.
    They haven't started looking into international PharmD applications yet .
    It may take another 2-3 months for them to review all applications and fill all spots.

    i got admiited into USN and attened an interview in jan,,, I didnt aply for western as i cant take the IA exam in april as i have my final semester exams then.

    I also visisted Ftlauderdale campus as i coudlt get thru on the phone and later when i met Dr Lean Lai i had to take an appointment and i took one for feb 9th

    and i ca,lled feb 9th at the designated time give to me and they didnt answer the phone....What the admissions officer told me in Feb is that they give the results of admission in May or so,

    I have also asked people around and they said that main preference is given to US permanent residents and later to other Visa holder
