Follow prompt,
input info as desired....

I see nothing has been created in this regard.

I have applied to Roosevelt entering class of 2014. So, they do not require a supplemental...can anyone tell us how long it took to get an interview invite after submitting.

Thanks in advance

that is nice...
My app has been mailed today...11/27/2013.
Hoping for a response in that regard next week...coz we are in the spirit of thanksgiving.

p.s: the admin coordinator at the school wrote to me inquiring about my completion of microbio and organic-chem. I told her am finishing o-chem this semester and registered to take microbio next semester-SPRING 2014. Will this impede my app process in any way at all?

Thanks in advance

Thank you for creating one for Roosevelt! This school still needs to have interview feedback. I'm going to apply to Roosevelt also.

It shouldn't. I received an email stating that I need 3 more credits of anatomy. I replied back to her (she is great btw) and told her I will be taking it in the winter. I received the interview the following day. Its scheduled for the 6th of December but I believe I will be postponing it for the following year in January. Good luck!

How is the interview process like for those of you who have already interviewed? How did you prepare for it?

Its one on one but in my case I had a student watching in. She asked a few questions but mostly answered mine. It's very informal and just the basics - why pharmacy, what have you done to prepare, why will you succeed here, are you a leader/follower and why, name a time you worked as a team and did any difficulties arise, etc. One thing to really prepare for is "Aside from the 3-year reason, why Roosevelt?" My interviewer kept rephrasing it and basically asked me that a few times, so that kind-of threw me off at times. Good luck!

Roosevelt University is very neat, organize. Things I liked about the school- small size, group based learning as well as individual learning. It is growing fast and good technology.
Interview was smooth, relaxing. I enjoyed my time at Roosevelt University. It is also a three years program, and there are many ways one can become competitive at the school either by enrolling in a master program or certificate in business. I found this school so perfect for me!

Just got accepted. Now I received emails requesting for my info. for drug screen and background check. Do you guys know when do I need to fill those out? Are they for specific school that I got accepted to or they are good for all pharmacy schools. Thank you!

Congrats! I also just got accepted! I received the same emails regarding the drug screen and background check. It's my understanding that these are done through PharmCAS and are good for anywhere you get accepted to. I'm still deciding between some other schools so I haven't accepted my offer just yet although Roosevelt will most likely be my decision. Has anyone made a Facebook group for the incoming class yet?

I decided to accept admission offer from UIC who has another system for drug screen and background check. Good luck on the future :)

Hi, Roosevelt has received my pharmcas, hopefully i will hear something soon. I have a good GPA and a decent pcat score. But my biggest obstacle is my speaking skills, I have been living here in States since 2 years . Will this language barrier effect my admission? I am worried
