    I submitted mine the 31st or so. I prefer kingsville due to being close to home. How about you?

    I called but they said they would start looking at applications once the deadline came, which was yesterday. Past years I believe they are sent around the last week or so of september. Interviews are october 4 and 5. Do you have any idea how many apply for early decision at kingsville?

    That's true. I honestly doubt a lot of people chose kingsville for early decision since I know a lot of people prefer living in Austin or Houston

    @Calbant I haven't gotten it either. I sent an email a couple of hours ago. I think we should be getting an invite in the next couple of days.

    Not really. I've been out of school for a fee years. I originally wanted to be a doctor. I was interviewed 4 times by medical schools but never accepted. I tried PA school and was interviewed once but didn't get in either lol. So I chose pharmacy school then just got the interview notice. You?

    I have always wanted to be a pharmacist and I will be graduating next spring! So I guess a pretty traditional path!

    I don't know. I think some are typical questions like why do you want to be a pharmacist. Also maybe ask about experiences. I heard that there is a chance of having to play games in the MMI format. I think they want to see how you react to different things like if you get mad easily or something like that

    I'll be talking to a pharmacist tomorrow morning about what kind of questions they can ask at the interview, so I'll let you know what he says

    I'm also a pharmacy school applicant (not to Texas A&M, but other Eastern schools), and I was lurking around, read this and felt like giving you some encouragement.

    I hope you get in to this school, love! You'll ace your interview! You will get in!

    Do research on 2-3 health topics. They may ask you to talk about some you know or are interested in. Study the program like when it started, when the first class graduated. Also look into residency programs if they ask

    @Calbant I think it went pretty good! It was not as bad as I thought it would be , it was semi-awkward for one person but overall I think it went well. How about you?

    I think it went well. The questions didn't seem too difficult. I think once I got past the first one and my nerves settled, I was fine

    We signed a confidentiality agreement so I can't say anything but my only advice is to not worry. It really wasn't bad at all. Once you get past the first question, your nerves will settle. I'm sure you'll get the interview!

    Nothing yet but they said later this week and early next week. I'm assuming first offers will start coming in tomorrow. Good luck!
