    I'll start. Does anyone think the way they communicate with applicants is a little old fashioned..? Every pharmacy school I've applied to communicates through email/online application portal.

    Also, I have an interview scheduled Monday, Feb. 22! Anyone else?

    A friend of mine who is in pre-pharm at Purdue just got her interview invite for Feb. 29.

    kam22 - are you a current student at Purdue?

    I actually just changed my interview date to the 29th as well.
    No I am not a Purdue student, I am out of state actually. Are you?

    No, I'm not. I'm not going into Pharmacy. Just found this searching for Purdue and I was just curious if many non-Purdue students applied for Purdue's Pharmacy school.

    I think for out of state applicants, they emailed us about interview dates and what preferences we had. I received everything else by mail.

    Thank you! It was a normal sized envelope actually!
    I'm an Indiana resident from a different university. My GPA is 3.84. I'm 2 year pre-pharm. I didn't take the PCAT. I am the treasurer of a volunteer service organization and have a ton of volunteer stuff at hospitals, along with participating in many other clubs . I'm also a grader and study table leader and a tutor. I job shadowed at a lot of places and attended a lot of pharmacy seminars too! I hope you hear back soon so you don't have to wait anymore! The waiting is killer!

    To everyone that has gotten accepted, congrats! Do you mind sharing your GPAs? I heard that Purdue does grade replacement

    3.5 Undergrad, but that didn't include microbio which I took over the summer recently so prob more like 3.6 (got an A and it was 5 units). 3.8 MPH GPA. Work experience 2 years as a research coordinator, 250+ volunteer hours before, and lots of leadership in college/grad school/post grad

    I am out of state, 3.3 GPA, graduating with a BS in biochemistry this May. I have taken the PCAT, but I do not think Purdue looked at it though.
    I have over 100 hospital volunteer hours, had 1-2 student jobs throughout college, 25hrs of research/week for ~2 years, have taken elective pharmacy courses and lots seminars, a corporate quality-management/microbio internship, lots of volunteering, committee positions, and leadership in student orgs.

    I am curious to see if my stats are competitive enough for acceptance. What are the stats of those of you who were accepted?
