    Were you invited to interview and were rejected or were you not invited anywhere?

    I was too but I am still being positive. There are over 100 pharmacy schools that you can apply to. Just keep applying and I'm sure something will come your way. I wouldn't stress too much.

    Yes ofcourse I will. It's still December, not March. Why would I give up when my goal is to get that pharmD?

    ONly applying to one school is a receipe for failure. It's a numbers game. You need to be applying to 20-40 schools. Yes this will cost a few thousand dollars in pharmCAS but in necessary if you have low stats. Pharmacy schools are hurting really bad right now for new students and have significantly lowered their admission standards from a few years ago.

    Oh my gosh people
    this post was geared towards people who have advice on what they did when they got rejected from a pharmacy school. For example, did you call the school and ask them how to improve or did you apply to more schools? If so, how did you go about it etc? Did you eventually get in?

    Well, I'm going interviewing tomorrow at University of Tennessee pharmacy school. Any advice from those who have interviewed in the past? I'm not for sure what to expect. I know 300 on average are invited to interview with the class size being 180.

    Apply to more schools it is not too late. Also, if your PCAT is low try to apply to schools that don't require PCAT. I know people got accepted with low GPA and PCAT scores but they had a bachelor though. Do you have a bachelor degree? This might helps as well. Good luck!

    You should definitely call the schools and see how you can be a more competitive applicant. That way, in the event that you reapply to the same school, you can explicitly tell them that you did this and that per the recommendation by the school. It shows that you're dedicated to the school and that you're really interested in applying.

    Being rejected from 1 school really doesn't mean much, especially if it was a competitive state school. If you have been rejected from multiple schools, then there is a serious problem with your application. Being rejected from one school just means you set your sights to high.
