    I'm almost finished with my application. My recommendations are in, yet I've my transcript and essay to go.

    Let's see where this application cycle takes me. Fingers crossed.

    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.

    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.
