Hi Darius!Hi Christine
When did you get your invitation email plz?It is from Incarnate Words COP, right? and how was you stats plz?
Thank you for your info,Hi Darius!
I just got my invitation email earlier today around 4pm. Yes it was from Incarnate Word COP, where they linked me to confirm my interview invite. My stats were not all that great:
PCAT: not competitive
So don't lose hope! They're interviewing December, January, and February vs. the other years where they only did January and February. Hope to hear good news from everyone and I'll update you guys on how the interview went.
Wow, your PCAT is amazing so you should have no worries. I also have a BS Biology and a lot of volunteering hours and currently shadowing a pharmacist. Your background is too amazing to pass up (MS and PhD). They're interviewing up until February so no worries.Thank you for your info,
I have submitted my application 09/05/14. However I have not received an invitation email yet. My PCAT comp: 96% and got BS in biology, MS in clinical biochemistry and PhD in Biochemistry from non-US universities (i.e. from UK). I am a little bit worried and guessing if I don't receive an invitation email for December, I will lose my chance for interviews in Jan and Feb. By the way, Where are you applying from?
ME too! I live by the border with Louisiana, Beaumont/Orange/Port Arthur Triangle area. But probably I won't go to UIW since I already got accepted into another public pharmacy school in Texas .Wow, your PCAT is amazing so you should have no worries.

Your background is too amazing to pass up (MS and PhD), unless they're intimidated by your accomplishments. They're interviewing up until February so no worries. Wish you the best! Btw, I'm applying from Southeast Texas, about 1.5 hours from Houston and 4.5 hours away from San Antonio.
I live in the Golden Triangle!!!! Small world! Congrats on your acceptance, UT?ME too! I live by the border with Louisiana, Beaumont/Orange/Port Arthur Triangle area. But probably I won't go to UIW since I already got accepted into another public pharmacy school in Texas .
Also I think you have a good chance for an invitation, like Christine said, your stats are strong! Do you have pharmacy observational experience? They require that, along with a form documenting it. Good luck and keep us posted!Hi guys, has any body applied for it IWU? if so, is any body received invitation letter yet?
I'm not sure if I should tell you the exact topic, but it's a topic that anyone can answer without prior preparation. It's a kinda personal essay. You get 25 minutes and you can use microsoft word. I thought it was pretty easy.How did the interview go guys? What was the wring exam about?
I also have an interview scheduled with UIW for January 10th, it will be my first pharmacy school interview (I have three others after that). I like their modified-block system. Does anyone know more about that?
Hi, Thank you for you message,Hi everyone! Congratulations on all your interviews
I'm a first year student at UIW. Let me know if you have any questions
As for the block system, I really love it. We only had 3 finals at the end of the semester and my friends in other graduate school programs had close to 10. If you have a stronger background in biochemistry and A&P then the pacing is very manageable and won't feel as quick to you. If not, it will probably feel faster paced but I don't believe it will be overwhelming. I don't think it took most people very long to get adjusted.
No Worries you ll be hear something some thing by the end of Feb. Do you mind sharing your stat please?I still haven't heard from them either, I've been waiting like crazy. They did say that they would try around Christmas time and that the best bet would be the first week of January. So who knows
