    Apparently, Southern Illinois University (the Edwardsville campus - that's by St. Louis).. is open a pharmacy school. I would just :love: to go there.. I heard 75 seats are available in 2005.. Does anyone know anything about this school?

    How's this? http://www.siue.edu/PHARMACY/

    It's interesting that IL is opening it's third pharmacy school. UIC, then MWU, now SIUE. IL is going to be cranking out 400 phamacists/year.

    Sounds like they are taking in Illinois people only. I bet they won't get many applicants because it's a new school. I'm sure they will see the light when they can have a full class if they were to say they prefer Illinois residents but will accept people from anywhere. (Except Mars of course :) )

    My first thought was finish pre-pharm.. so I can get in..

    See why.. SIUE is different..

    A) Not in Chicago or a 'burb
    B) Great for rural, St. Louis area people *me*
    C) In state tuition... UIC is in Chicago (not prepared to do that)
    MWU..

    I am glad to see that SIU is hopping aboard!

    I called for a tour this summer.. but I am not exactly sure what they will be touring.. Construction? Is it up? Down? (side to side :idea: )

    Oh I bet they get a ton of applications. Just look at Hawaii....one SDNer said she applied to like 20 schools but only got accepted to HICP. New schools are excellent sources for "the less than ideal" candidate. I am not flaming - I do understand that there are other reasons to attend new colleges besides the easier app process.
