Hey! I haven't found a thread for Mercer Class of 2021, so I decided to make this one. My pharmCAS has been verified and I received an email last Monday from Mercer saying that my application is complete. Does anyone know when we will be hearing from them? I applied ED and I can't wait to hear back from them!

My PharmCAS has also been verified and I got an email from them saying that my application is under review. I'm pretty anxious waiting on an interview! Their response time is pretty fast compared to most pharmacy schools, so we should hear back soon. Best of luck to us!

I hope so! I am super excited about them. Did you apply ED as well? How long has yours been under review? I got that email last Monday, so it's been a little over a week

Mine has been under review since last Monday as well. I feel so, so anxious :(
And no, I didn't apply ED, but Mercer is one of my top choices!

Congrats on your interview! And I'm really not sure. I've heard the groups can be big or small, but since we are pretty early, it might not be that big. Are you excited?

Yes!! I am super excited!! I am just trying to crank out that supplemental essay that they sent out to us today...which has to be done by Wednesday. It isn't a hard prompt, I just like to have time to revise and what not instead of having to do it all so quickly

Dsc, I have two questions for you:
1. When did they email you that they had received your application for review?
2. When did they offer you the interview?

You will have a tour, a group interview, and an interview with a faculty member. They are really relaxed and very welcoming. Just review basic pharmacy school interview questions and be yourself and you will be ok!

It took around four weeks for them to review my application, and they offered the interview two days ago

Hello MUkitten, can I ask one question to you?
I have an interview in 10/21 and I would like to hear how many questions they ask you in one-to-one interview. :D

Hello All,

So while I still have some time before applying to Mercer School of Pharmacy, I wanted to ask what is the minimum GPA and PCAT that'll qualify a student for an interview. My plan is to do my best to knock my PCAT out of the water, but I'm worried my GPA may be at the a bit low. Anyways, the dream of my life is to get into Mercer's School of Pharmacy. I had an opportunity to tour it and it was love at first sight. I'm very fortunate to be blessed with amazing interview skills, so my main concern is getting into the door of that interview. Any input would be highly appreciated. And I wish all the best to all of you this cycle!

Sorry for the late response. I haven't been on in a while. Your science and cumulative GPA have to be above 3.0 and have a PCAT composite score > 50. That should qualify you for an interview. But I would recommend getting some experience in the pharmacy world before you apply too. Also, submit your application ASAP because spots are already filling up. Good luck and I hope to see you next year!

Firstly, thank you so so much for your reply. I'm actually just a first-year college student right now, but when it does come time to apply, I will be applying ED. So generally, if one has a Science and Cumalitive GPA above a 3.0 plus a PCAT score above 50, and some experience in Pharmacy, are they very likely to get an interview? I will keep that in mind as a I move forward.

Thank you so much for your encouragements mate. It really calms down my fears and I'm happy that there is someone like you on the thread. I really hope to get into Mercer's Pharmacy school in the future.

All the best to you as you begin your Pharmacy career at Mercer. I have a huge amount of respect for you and all of those who got in. You worked very hard to see this day and you deserve it! I hope that you have a successful and fulfilling Pharmacy career!

I had my interview on October 17. I haven't received a call from the Admissions but I did receive a request to complete a drug screening that I completed today. I hope that means I got accepted! Is anyone else still waiting for a call from those who were interviewed either on 10/17 or 10/21?

Hey would you mind telling me your stats. GPA, PCAT score. My Pharmcas gpa is a 3.5 but I didn't do too well on the quatitative part of PCAT and ended with a 60%. I just want to know so I can see what chance I have on getting in.

I think it is good given you have a great GPA. A 60% isn't that bad given you have an effective counter-balance (your GPA)

Hey everyone!
How long after the interview will you hear back?
I had my interview a Monday and got a call that same Friday. make sure to have your phone handy and answer all calls even if it seems it's outside business hours. I got my call at around 8:00pm while I was at work from the advisor's personal phone while I was at work and didn't think to check my voicemail until a week after. Good Luck!

I had a total GPA of 3.70 and got a composite of 62. I didn't do well on the quantitative reasoning but got 85 and 86 PR on the sciences.

I emailed Ms Berry at the beginning of November and she said that the immunization document was being updated and that it would be sent out as soon as it had been reviewed/approved. I haven't received anything since then.
