Hi everyone! Found this forum by doing a google the other day..came across UT-Frank's thread where he said he accepted his invite to UT yet now wants to pursue optometry. Glad you got in Frank! But if you decide not to go, I may have to kick your butt for hogging a seat lol UT Austin was the only pharm school I applied to, and I had my interview April 17th I think. Like most of you, I still haven't heard back I can't help but feel optimistic, but I'm definitely not going to be a happy camper if I don't get in lol! I graduated with a BA in a totally different field a few years ago, and have spent the last three years taking all the pre-reqs for pharm school. Have also been doing biomedical research in a pharmacology lab at UT Southwestern Medical School. My pre-req gpa is a less than stellar 3.2-3.3 though because my mom was diagnosed with cancer the semester I started up school again, and she passed away a few months later. My grades definitely took a dive. PCAT was a disappointing (to me) 94 because I bombed the chem section (due to poor time management, not general stupidity lol!). Anyway, it's great to see so many possible UT pharm students in here! I really hope we all get in and can meet up sometime soon, maybe before the semester starts..esp since I don't know squat about Austin heheh EDIT: Oh and is anyone else here interested in the PharmD/PhD program or in specializing in nuclear pharmacy after obtaining the PharmD? I don't plan on doing retail work, since my end goal has always been to become active in the cancer field, both in helping patients and in researching new meds. EDIT 2: took out the "crappy" ..sorry bout that!
