No, I didn't finish the application at all lol I just took PCAT a few days ago. I asked the LoR to be sent by mid October so I'll be submitting mine around that time. Do you know if they have rolling admissions or not? If yes, you should submit your application!

Are you an LIU student, because I am! :) There is rolling admission, but I believe they stop around May-ish.

Oh, and the PCAT! Congratulations! Was yours hard? I took mine in July.

Nah, graduated from Fordham, and taking some of the remaining prerequisites at CUNY. PCAT wasn't that hard for me! How was yours if you don't mind sharing? My concern with the application process is that my GPA isn't that competitive compared to other candidates (sGPA: 3.00ish cGPA: 3.4) and I'm trying to show them I'm proving by updating my transcripts to them whenever available :dead: Idk if my PCAT score alone would be enough for them to give me a chance for an interview :(

I'm a sophomore, so I didn't take like most of the classes required for the PCAT. For that reason, it was slightly harder for me. I mean, I got over a 400, which surprised me! I tried, man. LIU requires over a 375, so as long as we hit over that mark by much points, you'll be fine. LIU takes people with cGPAs of 3.4~. I have around a 3.5, so I think we'll be okay!

Your PCAT score is GREAT, though! You will definitely get an interview! You probably have great extracurriculars, too. I have minimal pharmacy experience. :( Like, virtually none.

I do have about 1.5 yr research experience at Mount Sinai and 1 yr experience at an independent pharmacy. But, there are SO many applicants without pharmacy experience and they get accepted so as long as you show strong academic background and willing to learn, I'm sure they'll take you :happy:

Hey! Did you apply, yet?! I sent in my application, my transcripts, and now I am waiting. PharmCAS just received my transcripts, so hopefully I hear back soon.

Nope, I didn't apply yet. But I'll submit mine before the end of October. Good luck!

You can say that again! I was so nervous I wouldn't get in, so SDN has been my go-to site for daily words of encouragement. I kept telling myself if they can get in, I can get in too. I thank God we did.

Congratulations on your acceptance @ChicPharmDee, though! Hey-hey, future classmate! Do you know how long of a time we have to accept (or decline) our seats?

Thank you for the well wishes!

I agree; everything went by so fast! I am still in awe, lol. The interview process was very smooth, but just be prepared to look very professional, so you can stand out amongst the batch.

It took maybe one week for me to hear back from LIU altogether. I think the next interview date is in mid-November!

It was only a group interview. I prefer that over individual interviews, though!
Group interviews as in you're in a room full of applicants and interviewers and discuss why you want to pursue the field, why our school, etc in front of everyone?? This is the most unexpected form of interview lol

Yes, exactly that! Each group had five interviewees, plus the two interviewrs.

I must admit, it was very intimidating because everyone was watching. So practice, practice, practice. It will be noticable if someone is underprepared.

Good luck! You'll probably get an interview soon! From what you told me, your stats sound great. It is also still pretty earlier in the application season.

Hi! Congratulations on your interview! So exciting!

To prepare, I’d say for you to know why you want to do pharmacy! What led up to your decision to be a pharmacist? What qualities do you have that will make you a good health professional? What will you do with your degree? Consider those things, and you’ll be in good shape for the interview!

Don’t forget to dress to impress! :)

I Just had an interview today. How long did it take for you to get a respond from LIU? I'm not sure what wait list means, but if I was to guess maybe they want to complete all interviews before granting a final decision. Just keep your figures crossed and pray about it and you should be fine.

How'd it go? It took me exactly 3 weeks for them to let me know I'm on the wait list.

I know they said they are backed up because someone in admissions is in a new position.

My interview was on feb. 22nd and it went great. But I got an email from LIU that they put me on wait list Idk what that means.

:( Have hope! What I can tell you is a great number of people accepted may possibly fail Organic Chemistry, thus lose their spot at the school. That opens up seats for those wait-listed. I hope that helps.

Thank you! It means a lot! Yes I applied to MCPHS, I got accepted in that. But it's too far for me and hoping I get in somewhere closer to home

Congratulations on your acceptance. :)

So, you’re East Coast! I know there is ACPHS, D’Youville, and St. John Fisher University also in NY for Pharmacy! But those are not in the city.
