Anyone applying to Purdue? I haven't seen a thread for this cycle, so I'll start a thread.

no response :[

does that mean that I got rejected?
Maybe they are still reviewing you, my friend that got rejected for an interview from another school was emailed to let him know. I'm pretty sure this is Purdue's first round of invites that got sent out, but I don't know how many dates they will be having.

So what's the word on the street about interview offers? I'm wondering if school closing due to nasty weather and some of the other campus related issues have slowed the process. My understanding was we would be mailed a letter....either way....an interview offer or rejection. I've not heard anything yet...

I just received an interview invitation for February 24th earlier this week. It came in the mail (the only school that has reached out in such an archaic way) with a letter and a response form I had to mail back. On the PharmCAS page for Purdue, it says interviews are Feb 24-March 7 I believe.

When will u plan to travel ? And where will u stay ?
I'm flying from Arizona at midnight, should be arriving in Indianapolis by the morning and then I'll drive a rental car up there. I'm going to Michigan after the interview, so I won't be staying anywhere.

*interviewed on 2/28*
Hang in there. I read somewhere they were mailing out letters the week of March 24 - 28. I was on pins and needles to hear about an interview. I'll be a little more patient with the acceptance/denial letter. I wouldn't be surprised if some of us don't hear anything until the week of April 7th. If Purdue gets behind a few days, the mail man is slowed down for some reason...lots of variables. We'll all get something eventually. How do you feel you did in the interview process?

Purdue was my toughest interview, I believe because it is my first choice, I put too much pressure on myself. My interviewers were amazing! They asked some challenging questions but I answered them all. Overall I think it went well. The oral/writing exercise was not bad at all. How about u?

My interviewers were awesome too. They asked a lot of questions right in my wheel-house...no random questions like "If you were a tree what would you be?" or anything. The written and verbal exercises were odd. My oral exercise was essentially the instructions off of a Zithromax box. But there were some mis-spelled words. In one instance, the back of the box was stating side effects and they wanted to say "loose stool", but it was written "looses stool". I wasn't sure if it was a typo or if I was supposed to catch the mis-spelling and fix it verbally or if I was to read it as written?? I read it as written and said "looses" and felt like a moron. At the end of my interview I mentioned it to my interviewers and they laughed and said they weren't trying to trick anyone and that it was probably just a typo. They said they would look into it. Other than that...it was a good interview. I'm really hopeful...and really anxious now that I'm writing about it. :)

Me too! I am still waiting to hear from Midwestern and CSU. My anxiety is at an all time high. We've technically have been waiting since Dec. 2nd. Your oral--It was probably a typo. But good you told them, they can/should discuss this once the committee meets. The "what is your favorite tv show" question threw me.. I told them SexNTheCity!! Then I thought, wait...that really may not have been the best answer lol considering the type of show...but that is me and they say just be who you are! Ha
