Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
I was just wondering how to write one of these. I know this sounds really stupid but I don't really know how to address the adcom without sounding desperate for a spot. Does anyone have a sample of one? I have been looking online but I haven't found anything great... so if anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it.
I really want to go to a certain school. My GPA isn't great though. I have a lot more to offer than what my GPA says though. I am a certified pharmacy technician and I have excelled in everything at my job putting me at one of the highest paid techs in my district. I don't know why I can't do well in school though. I think it has something to do with the fact that there are always at least 300 people in my classes and I really don't like classes that size. I don't have a choice because this is the only place I can afford to do my undergrad right now. But what I'm trying to say is that I don't think my GPA at this school accurately reflects who I am.
Also, what happens if I write 2 letters of intent? Would they find out? There is one school that I am sure that I have no chance at... the other I might but I really want to write letters to both as long as it will have no negative outcomes. Any thoughts on this?
Auraraptor, this is true. It'll be my luck that I'll get accepted to both. Lol. Yeah, so I'm not going to do that.
Basically a letter of intent is telling the school that if they accept you, you will rescind all other applications/acceptances to go to their school.
It's really like begging a school to take you by telling them you will only be loyal to them. I don't really know how to explain it very well.
So anyway, anyone have any tips for writing one?
But what if your waitlist is ranked and the your rank is low. By submitting this letter of intent, can they move you up in the rank? Or would that just be unfair for some students?
I think this is something like a thank you note after an interview. Hardly anyone does it, but you'll be surprised at its effect.
