    I can't believe it! They don't even have my 2nd letter of rec yet. I'm so excited.

    Anyone know the interview process for UGA? I know that it is really hard to get in, even if you have an interview and even as an in state student.

    Thanks guys!! My overall GPA is 3.2, PCAT 91%. As for GPA, though, they have told me they calculate a pre-pharm GPA which they base their admissions on more than the overall GPA. My pre-pharm GPA is a lot higher than my overall. Hope this helps! They do have a high PCAT average (in the 90s) so taking it again can only help. I will be taking it again in January as well (b/c my Chem score was low).

    Thanks jlee, I will let you know how it goes. I remember someone saying on here that they interviewed with UGA last year but didn't get in and their stats were really good (don't remember exactly). Also, I have a friend whose sister applied there 2 years in a row and has not gotten in yet. I found this out recently, I had no idea how hard it is to get in at UGA. I'm really scared actually. I feel that I have a better shot at Mercer. But I think you should definitely get an interview with a PCAT in the 90s and your GPA. Good luck! :luck:
