    Not to knock the wind out of your sails, but a distance pharmD program isn't look upon favourably when hiring. You get so much more opportunities, networking, and become a better overall pharmacist when you're actually enveloped in the program and attend a campus. Especially during your first two years.
    Actually, most schools don't accept online credit for their pre reqs for this very reason. LECOM may tell you it's the same as being there, but it really isn't.
    I understand you may have mitigating circumstances though. Think about it.

    I'm on the 5th. I plan to wear business wear. Slacks, sport coat, tie... interviewing for professional program should be treated the same as interviewing for the profession after school I think.

    I interview on November 7th for the Distance Pathway! How did your interview go? I’m flying in and am wondering about how long they kept you?

    A degree is a degree is a degree. As long as he passes NAPLX hiring managers don't care.

    It went well. It's a full day 745am-2pm. Great facility and interview program. 2 interviews, 1 solo and 1 group. Beware of traffic, it's horrible in the area. Stay as close as you can to the school. There's a holiday inn near it. Good luck!

    I wouldn't think so, my status just changed from that yesterday and others I interviewed with as well. We interviewed 2 weeks ago. It changed to that the day we interviewed.

    If you look at your Pharmcas application, what does it say at the header on page 19-20; where is says "School of Pharmacy- Applied Early decision". Did that change at all?

    Congrats on getting in!
    I'm applying to the distance program too. Just wondering is the interview only in Florida or do they let you interview in Erie if that's closer?
    How were your GPA and PCAT? I'm so nervous and want to get in so bad. I have over 2 years pharmacy experienced and a bachelors of science in biology and a minor in chemistry...ahhh so anxious.

    Hey! I’ve submitted my application about a week ago. How was the interview process? (Anxiety) the waiting is always the most exhausting part...

    I just submitted my pharmcas application today? What were your stats? Did it take them a while to send you a supplemental application. I'm so nervous

    Well I applied to 5 other schools as well. LECOM was my 3rd choice. I’ve been accepted into all schools by the way. I needed up choosing lecom because I wanted to stay in the south and not too close to home. I’m from Mississippi and Bradenton is 9 hours away so it’s perfect. The school is amazing and what ultimately made me choice LECOM over the others were simply the faculty and staff. They were amazing and more than nice and helpful. They believed in me. They have been in constant contact with me since November and I love that.

    No It didn’t take them long to send the supplementary once your pharmcas was verified

    The interview was real laid back honestly. I thought it was going to be scary but it was relaxed you could tell that they were more interested in getting to know you rather than what you knew. I’m not sure if you’ve already had your interview or not but if you have you probably feel the same way. There wasn’t really a big wait for me everything was pretty quick
