TNPharmBoy said:Hello, everybody. I've got a question about interviews. How much weight do they carry when compared to other factors like LOR, GPA, Extracurriculars? Thanks!
I think pharmacy and med school is much the same way. A small percentage cannot interview well. MOst can interview at a mediocre level. A very small minority can have stellar interviews. Those are the ones who get accepted(i.e. UCSD/UCSF)
Laferno said:I was thinking more along the lines of medium-ranked schools that have 3:1 or 4:1 application to admission rates.
FutureRxGal said:The days of those ratios are long gone. The PharmCAS schools have astronomically high applicant to accepted ratios, and I'll bet the non-PharmCAS schools have large ratios as well.
i would check out pharmcas's numbers as well...Laferno said:I was using info from USPharmD.com. Maybe it is outdated, but here is the link if you are interested.
It is 2003 and 2001 info, respectively.
bbmuffin said:we are at 5.6:1 ratio according to your 03 site... which comparitively is not all that high.....
pharm cas has last year at over 1395 applicants and they accepted 114 (at my school again remember... i don't go to a "top" school.....")
