    Well the pharmcas deadline is this Friday so it has to be before then. I believe if they don't let people know until after the deadline passes, students can choose elsewhere to go

    My gpa was a 3.68 and pcat was 93rd percentile. One student who talked to me at the interview date said his pcat was a 41st percentile and he got accepted, so don't worry.

    my pcat was 95th percentile and gpa 3.79. But I agree with @Calbant , there are students with lower pcat scores that still make it! You got this!

    Don't be worried. You have until February to get a email which is the last dates on their site for interviews. I wasn't given an interview invite till a week before. Best plan is if your still in school focus on your classes. Check your email daily but don't lose focus on your current curriculum. Also, you can start preparing for the interview while you wait. So, don't be worried start getting prepared instead. Good luck!

    It takes time. Schools have to send emails out and there is still another week or so until another they even start interviews

    Yes I applied for early decision and didn't hear anything till a week before the interview date. I assume it'll be like this throughout the regular decision dates as well.

    I got a interview invite this past Wednesday. Mine is scheduled for this coming Thursday. After this week, the next interview date is at the end of January. Don’t stress, there is still a lot of time before the last interviews.

    I looked at the school's page on PharmCas and it says they send out offers about a week after each round of interviews.

    I've just been looking up MMI interview videos on YouTube. I'm trying not to work myself up so much so I don't get too nervous.

    To all who are going to interview, don't worry at all. The questions are pretty simple. Just be calm and you'll be fine.

    My interview was also on Dec 6th but haven't heard anything back yet. The program coordinator emailed me last Monday, Dec 10th, that they would be extending offers by the end of last week or early this week.

    How do they determine which campus you’ll end up going to?

    They give you a form to designate which campus you want to be selected if you are offered admission. They give 4 options: college station ONLY, kingsville ONLY, prefer college station but would be okay to accept kingsville, and prefer kingsville but would be okay to accept college station. They use this and your explanation for the preference to determine which campus to place you.

    I went into college from high school with about 50 college credit hours to transfer. I graduated college in 3 years with my BS in Biology with a 3.6 science GPA. I took the PCAT twice but on the second one I improved to about the 80th percentile. I had a lot of community work and extracurriculars that I was involved in. I didn't have retail pharmacy experience however I had 2 years of experience working (and training others) in the emergency room with EM doctors and EM pharmacists. It also helped that I had VERY good LORs from my references.
