    I'm from Colorado and I'm applying to UNM....I love NM. Beautiful state, and I have some relatives there that might let me live with them during school. Which would be nice, and cheap...haha.
    WICHE is the Western States student exchange thingy, right? So they might think I'm alright because I'm from Colorado? I'm pretty sure Colorado is in the WICHE program.
    I haven't heard anything from UNM, but they won't have my complete application until sometime next week (PharmCAS sending out references on Monday, and I just mailed my photo and check earlier this week). But they're rolling admissions, so I would hope to hear from them within a few weeks of them receiving my complete app. I hope.

    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.

    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!"

    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.

    Wow, only a few have heard from them. Either that or not a lot of people apply to NM. Or maybe people did and they just didn't post. Either way, it's the end of feb and so few interviews from them. :rolleyes:

    I received my interview invitation about 3-4 weeks ago, they tell you what day you are interviewing and if you can't make it then you forfeit your interview with them. It is really different than other schools I got interviews with.

    I never finished the supplemental b/c I found out they only admit 10 out-of-state students on average each year (this is for a class size of 85) and I had already got in to one of my top three schools. I never even noticed this stat till a couple days before the deadline.

    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.

    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. :)

    Hi, I am a University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy (UNM COP) fall 2009 applicant. UNM is my *first choice* (my hometown is Albuquerque) and although I was fortunate enough to get an interview (Sat., April 25), I am still waiting to hear from the Admissions Committee, which will not convene to make final decisions on the remaining candidates for several more days. I hope by posting some admissions statistics here, other applicants may have some of their curiosity filled.

    They wanted final transcripts as soon my classes were done.

    So I had my finals end on May 1, and all the grades were updated on May 8th. I sent priority express on the transcript so it would reach New Mexico in a timely matter.

    A few days after I sent the transcript, I got a rejection letter from them....and the date that was on that letter was May 5th. There goes $25.

    There hasn't been much activity here in the forum but I just thought I would ask if someone can suggest a nice apartment building or a good neighborhood. I emailed the school and they suggested the Family & Graduate living complex located south of the main campus. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.

    Check these out:

    http://och.unm.edu (UNM Off-Campus Housing)
    albuquerque.craigslist.org
    www.alibi.com classifieds

    If you don't mind living in the ghetto, Mountain View Apartments is within biking distance to the main campus. Sun Village is nicer and closer to the north campus, which is where the Nursing/Pharmacy building is located. Also, Sun Village may still have a shuttle service to UNM, which is great. The Citadel and Netherwood Apartments are close to the north campus, but I've never lived at any of these places. Of course, there are tons of other places around the UNM area. Good luck.

    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.
