yeaa haha i was the only nevada guy, it was a pretty chill interview. Is MCPHS your first choice?
Ya it really was relaxed. I liked the staff I met there - and I'm almost positive it's going to be Boston for me. What about you?

Someone please clarify!!-->>>

I thought the deadline was February 1st on PharmCAS and that there was no early decisions made before? or is that only if you're transferring into 1st/2nd year?

They have rolling admission. I applied as a transfer student for their P3 year (1st professional year), interviewed in November, and got an acceptance two weeks later.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

Hi, it's on Friday March 11. Is yours also on that day? I sent out a confirmation/ interview acceptance email after I got the interview invitation email (just to confirm), and they sent me another confirmation email which stated the date, time and location to meet, along with links to find hotels/restaurants, etc. It said in the email that I will have to check in at the security desk and a member of the pharmacy staff will be there.

Did you get any email/letter from them after the interview invitation?

Hey,
I am from CA and I send out my secondary application in December, 2010. I received an email from the school saying my application is under review in Jan 8th, 2011. So far, I haven't heard from the school? Is that mean I am not invited for the interview?
Can someone let me know pls? I called the admission office and no one response even though I left a message.

Thanks

Hello!
I have an interview on Mar 18, and I was just wondering for those who have interviewed there, if you could tell me basically what you did when you got there. This is my first interview and I don't really know what to expect other than the actual interview part and the email said its for 4 hours. Should I expect to write an essay? Will I have to take a chem & math assessment test there too? Any input will be greatly appreciated :)

I got accepted and didn't get an interview invitation either :confused:
Are you a transfer student for pharm.D program or you are a freshmen student? I applied to the school as a transfer student and haven't heard from the school. I don't know why and had contacted the school by phone and left a message , still has no response.

hey, you'll be given two articles to read and a question to answer for based on your opinions/views. There is no right or wrong answers as it depended on individuals' ethical perspectives. If you could organize your thoughts well and clarify your responses to the question being asked, you will be fine.
Good luck!
