    Hi guys,
    I know it's still early, but i am currently being waitlisted for two pharmacy schools. :( The waiting is killing me. Anyone who is experiencing the same thing, feel free to post. We are all in this together :)

    Actually I thought the interview at Ohio state was okay. It was mostly behavior questions. ... But the one at UNC(MMI) style... I didn't do so well. Had time left over during each cases... didn't elaborate my answers( didn't take into account of everything... and wasn't confident at all. )Even one of the interviewers told me at the end of the interview to be more confident...
