    Yes I have received my interview invitation. I think the school is a little too expensive but I want to see what they offer.

    Hi guys, question here. I have taken my pcat and going to get my second rec sorted out. My question is should I wait until my fall grades are out to submit my application, which will be late December, since it'll boost my gpa up or should I submit my application as soon as I'm done (most likely November) and then update my transcript later. My gpa's about a 3.4 ish but my science gpa isn't that amazing, hence why I want to wait.

    Also curious on the interview for Albany. My interview is in a few weeks and I heard it was really quick and lackluster. I have a feeling Albany just wants our $$$, then again, which school doesn't?

    Haven't received anything from them yet. I know they have an interview date scheduled in January, so we should hear back soon.

    How was the Albany interview by the way? Its my first interview and I'm extremely nervous!

    I literally got an interview AND got accepted to Albany while LIU has been taking their sweet time reviewing my application for interview.
    It went ok, straightforward questions and I practiced all my responces on the train so it went well.
    Now my bigger issue is paying the deposit for albany while waiting on LIU...
    In all honesty the ONLY thing LIU has going for it is that it's in NYC. Albany is MUCH nicer, cheaper (they give financial aid and merit aid), the dorms are great, and the curriculum is better imo.

    2 Days.
    The interviewer at Albany actually told me I'm accepted, so the letter was just a formality I guess.
    Meanwhile LIU has had my app for over a month now and they haven't even scheduled me for an interview. When I called the lady told me it depends on my grades in a very rude tone. My PCAT is a 95 ffs... If that was the case I should have at least had an interview by now.

    My opinion it depends how you present yourself at the interview and how you answer the questions.

    My honest opinion sometimes it's just luck in getting a interview bc there are alot of students with good gpa's but how you present yourself .

    My interview there was alot of young students that went to LIU and judging on their appearance and ability to speak id say they lacked on that part .

    Make sure you dress professionally and are ready to speak eloquently.

    For the girls- dress professional and wear minimum makeup !!! When I went to the interview there was alot of girls with clubwear makeup and stilettos. Just awful .

    Anyway that is my take on it .

    Update for transfers: Called admissions. Once you receive the official packet in the mail, you have 3 weeks to pay the deposit.

    I received an interview for LIU. But I don't know what to think my science GPA is a 2.00 calculated by Pharmcas. My math is a 2.38. My overall GPA is a 2.7below the minimum. What I want to know do I have a change? my Pcat score was a bit high I received a 47 composite. 66 chemistry, 40 biology, 23 in math.
