Maybe,Maybe not. New Mexico, like most states schools, prefers to admit state students, for the hope they practice in state. Next UNM partcipates heavily in WICHE. UNM trades students with other states that do not have pharmacy schools, just as we except students whose state do not have a med school and other states accept NM students because we have no Dental School. Than after that they take a look at OOS non-WHICHE. So you may have a shot, you never know.oh that sucks because Im out of state (CA). Alright, guess i wasted $50 lol.
LOL, that's EXACTLY what my friend said. UNM will probably look at CA applicants right before they review applicants from international student, if it even makes it that far.yeah, once they started participating in PharmCAS it skyrocketed. I wonder if people just go "hmm, New Mexico, I bet no one is applying there. I'll try!"
i was offered an interview and i think it was for sometime at the end of january. i received the letter around christmas time. i ended up declining the interview because i accepted a seat at another school. i was pretty surprised because i'm out of state. good luck though!So, has anyone heard back from them as far as interviews yet??
soultripper just out of curiosity are you instate for UNM? It is really weird that they sent my invite so long ago and my date is after yours.
Thanks for the info! It is greatly appreciated. I'm not getting my hopes up since I'm an out-of-stater, but I'm close by at least.I've heard interview invites will be sent until April 30th.
Usually they make instate people wait until after spring semester is done, but I've heard of one person who knows they were accepted.
I've also heard of one accepted out of state student.
My friend was on the alternate list two years ago, but did not get into UNM COP. He was on the alternate list again last year and got in. Someone close to me got into UNM COP the week before the semester started. I have heard that the list is kept fairly short, so keep your head up. I'm still waiting to hear from UNM COP; I really hope that I get accepted. Buena suerte.
