Wanted to go ahead and start this thread since the cycle has been open since mid-July. Has anyone applied/planned to apply as an early decision applicant? Anyone know the earliest/latest interviews for those applicants? Dr. Solis also notified me that TSU lowered their minimum GPA/PCAT composite score requirements as well. Regular decision applicants chime in as well!

Hi! Yes, I saw that on their website that they lowered it especially for provisional admission. I don't quite understand how you're considered for provisional admission. The GPA requirements they also included the minimum PCAT requirements for each admission, but then under GPA they list PCAT requirements and it does still say 40 is required to apply.

Hey guys, after you finish your supplemental application, did you guys just pay the fee online? Because I don’t have a T number and there’s no spot for me to put my PHARMCAS ID either, so how will they know it’s me when I pay?

Before you start the supplemental application it asked you to type in your PharmCas ID, which is how they’re able to identify you. After completion it gives you an option to to pay, so don’t worry about the T number since you’re not a student yet.

How is your interview? Is Dr. Davis told that will call you back to discuss about how the interview, or something like that?
When i finish my interview and go back first floor, a lady told me that in some days, Dr. Davis give a call to discuss about how interview day, and I’m waiting almost 3 weeks , but I have not received the call from Dr. Davis yet?
So I’m worried and stressed for waiting

Mine went pretty well. They asked maybe 8-10 questions. And no, I went to go talk to Dr. Davis before my interview and stopped by afterwards to see when I will know if I get accepted or not. She said that on Monday acceptance letter will be going out to those who had an interview.

I'm a little late but I had my interview on 10/12. I got a response and was notifed I was accepted in exactly 6 days. It may have helped that I originally applied as an early decision applicant (however I was moved to the regular decision pool), so me applying super early may have played into my favor.

As far as interview questions, they asked why Pharmacy, why TSU, who's your role model, a question about what would you do in the event that you made a poor grade (like how would you respond to that situation), an ethical question about vaccinations and deciding who to give them to, a question about a relevant medical/pharm news topic/issue that's peaked your interest and what you had to say about it, something about Hurricane Harvey and if you experienced anything or did anything to help the community. They also gave me time to ask questions at the very end. It was fairly short and sweet, to the point. Just relax and be yourself is what I'd say; it's simply a conversation. I was informed the interviewers had no prior knowledge about me or my PharmCAS application so that may play in your favor as far as no bias to begin with.

I was told I'd receive a call from Mrs. Davis after the interview with regards to my interview experience and whatnot, but instead I got an email saying I was accepted. So the process/responses may differ for some.

If anyone has any questions juest let me know and I'll do my best to answer!

I'm applying too. Just took the PCAT on the 4th. My second year undergrad was my worst probably. Right now my GPA is at 3.05 with my science GPA at 2.97. I did pretty well with 87 on the PCAT Composite though. Hopefully that makes all the difference.

I also had a question regarding the GPA Calculation. I took Sociology and Psychology, where I had A in both classes. But the Social & Behavioral Science elective is saying that you basically only need one. So will only one of those class count towards my pre-pharm GPA? Or will they both be counted?

I went to the Pharmacy college, and they were so rude and wouldn't even listen to what I had to say lol. Didn't really expect that to be honest, but I guess I'll just keep waiting..
Yes, very unprofessional! I don't know if they are overworked or they're just rude! Nway i declined the offer. Will be attending my first college of choice. Good luck.
