Turned in my application for early decision and have been hunting for a thread to pop up for Texas A&M so I figured I would get one going. Any one else checking their email relentlessly for the interview?

Same here, I applied early decision and I called admissions and they said they are trying to send out emails for interview invitations sometime this week! So be on the lookout. What are your stats?

PCAT is an 81. Gpa is around 3.6 depending if you're looking cumulative or science. The thorn in my side is going to be my experience in the pharmacy. I have a day of shadowing a clinical manager, but that's it. How about you?

My GPA is around a 3.0 and PCAT isn't the best and is probably the weakest part of my application.. But i have pretty good letters of recommendation and a good personal statement and I've been a pharmacy tech for about 2.5 years now so i'm hoping for the best.

Hey guys! I'm applying for early decision at A&M too. I'm still waiting to hear back about an interview. This is really nerve-wracking.

That experience is gold! Hope you get the interview and I wouldn't worry too much about thE PCAT. Heard a lot of success stories with weaker scores.

I'll let y'all know if/hopefully when I get mine. Btw Cheyloh just responded to an email I wrote her a while ago saying that they're trying to get interview invites out early next week.

Kingsville. We purchased our first home in Corpus Christi last year. Something more permanent for our little one. How about you?
I can't decide. I get chronic migraines, so I have to get Botox every 3 months. There are 3 neurologists who administer Botox in the College Station/Bryan area while there is only one in Corpus Christi. For that reason, I may put College Station first, but I don't know since I really like Kingsville too.

Well, that's a very legit reason to request College Station and I think if you tell them that reason you will definitely get that location. It's such a pretty area with nice weather. I hate how few specialists they have down here because their schedule is bonkers.

I was debating between the two campuses too, but I’m leaning more towards college station since it’s close to home. Anyone get any email yet? It should be sometime this week and I keep waiting!

I've read the interview process is now mini style. Was this different from your style of interview?

Yes. It looks like they have adopted UT's interview process. Your class will be the first to experience this. IMO, this is better than just being interviewed by 1 or 2 faculty in a room for 30 minutes.

I got mine too!! It’s at 11:30 AM next Friday. Well I’m glad it’s this interview format then, because it’s not as nerve wracking!

What advice do you have before the interview? Like what kind of questions should we expect so I know how to prepare. Is there much we need to know about the school’s pharmacy program itself? Like the history of it and other stuff?

Mine is 8:30 on next Friday, too. Really nervous now.
Preach. I'm super nervous. Going to go over a bunch of interview situations this weekend and I hope we all do well. Going shopping for my pant suit this weekend. Nothing crazy, just formal. That is still an appropriate outfit for an interview, correct?

Nothing lined up and I'm looking at two plans as of right now. Knowing there are ups and downs to both. Haven't decided on a course because I'd like a little more exposure and information before making any plan concrete.
I was looking towards searching and applying for hospital residencies during pharmacy for after pharmacy school as well as looking towards military pharmacy.

Yes, I bought a thin black portfolio to keep track of any ideas or names/cards to send out thank you letters after!
I’m wearing a grey women’s pant suit with some short heels. Just have to figure out what to do with my hair .
What are you wearing? I rather be over done then under.

It went good! I definitely think it was easier than I imagined, I just hope that I gave them the answers on the ethics questions that they were looking for! How about you? Have no idea on when we will find out

It wasn’t as bad as I thought! But there were a couple I wasn’t sure about but again, there’s really no right or wrong answer. Just mainly opinions so I’m hoping for the best. Really hope I get in but a little worried. We should post on here as soon as we get an email!

Thinking back specifically
