Yes I was good!
I just spoke to student affairs at UF to check that they got my PCAT scores.
They have everything. They said I will probably hear in February or March.

As tempted as I was I did not ask What are my chances....
Understand, this is the only university I am applying to.
GPA 3.67 General and 3.81 Science
PCAT 93 composite
BS Chemistry 1997
Work: Drug Discovery.

So, I am not asking, but if you want to coment on my chances and get me through the next long 2 month wait, I would be so appreciative!
Thank you!

Since UF only looks at science GPA, then 3.81 looks good. So does the 93 PCAT. Having a BS also helps. I think your chances are really good.

UF is my top choice too. When they calculate your science GPA... do they include 'everything' or just prereq sciences? For example, will it include my grades for biochemistry, molec bio I/II etc.. ?

I think somebody posted here before that they only calculate GPA on the science classes they list in their website as required.
I just checked and that is correct! Click on:

I think your stats look great! Just make sure you do a good job on the interview and I think you're practically guaranteed to be accepted. They like good personalities! :)

I was always under the assumption that UF rarely interviews...

Oops! I thought about that when I posted because I wasn't sure if they interview or not.

Just curious, is it common for schools not to interview?

Thank you! I like your vote of confidence.
I think UF interviews just a handful of students. If I am picked, I am going to blame you! :laugh: :laugh: Just kiding! :laugh:

Most schools require interviews. However, there are about a dozen that do not require it, but select a few out of the pack to get interviewed, not sure why. One member got interviewed because he said that UF wanted to know why he didn't choose medicine with a 4.0 and 99 PCAT....
