The accepteds all have their own thread, so let's have our own! Let us know what school(s) you've been waitlisted at, and update anyone if you get an acceptance!

So far, I've been waitlisted at Husson University. As a side thought, I wonder what the average movement is on a waitlist? I would think probably 20-30% of the accepteds and other waitlisters end up declining admission, depending on the school. Do you think any school would actually divulge that information?

Several schools I have interviewed at say that a large percentage, up to 100% of the waitlist, is ultimately accepted into the school. It all depends on the school/year though.

Waitlisted at Jefferson. It appears that the waitlist did move a bit in previous years, but no idea about specifics and percentages. Just hoping I get in eventually. Would anyone recommend writing a letter of intent or anything?

I hear ya. Most of my friends got in :( I'm wait-listed at Sullivan CoP with 3.34 gpa, 84 PCAT, year of retail pharm experience, CPhT, and finishing my bio degree this may. I'm hoping :xf: to land an inpatient hospital job for the next year while I wait to reapply. I saw a fulltime spot for an IV tech at one of the hospitals yesterday, but I still have 4 weeks or so of classes left.

SWEETNESS! I wish I knew what number I was :scared:
I just found out that I've been waitlisted for Ohio State and all I know is that I am "in a good spot" (according to the admissions director). It is so nerve-wracking because some years they take almost the whole waitlist and some years they only take a few people :eek: My roommate was waitlisted for optometry school and she found out literally a week before classes started that she got in! OMG. But man was she happy that week. Good to luck to everybody at getting in!

I was put on the waitlist at UW. I started at #10 and when I called a week ago I was told that I am now #5. So, in just a few weeks there had been some movement on the lilst. I am still very hopeful that I will get in and they said in the next few weeks I will have a better idea (since the deadline for response from the accepted students is coming up). I wish there was some way to find out stats on how many students get in off the waitlist every year! It is so nerve racking to be in limbo!!!

I'm waitlisted at Belmont. We were supposed to get our rank by May 1, according to my letter, but they added another interview day on April 30 and then the Great Flood of 2010 has happened so.... it might be awhile before I know anything. :-/

So I see USN is getting people off of the waitlist already.

I'm waiting on California Northstate still, no news. I think they made their final decisions last week so hopefully they will start pulling people off the waitlist soon. Lets hope.

*waits with everybody else in this thread*

if you are waitlisted, consider yourself lucky. pharmacy school is 4 yrs. the number of pharmacists graduating, schools opening, etc make it a dying profession. read teh pharmacy forum and get feedback from real pharmacists.

most people you talk to have their head in a hole.

if you have a degree and can pursue other areas, id recommend it

Hey guys I have a question. Is it normal for the school you are waitlisted at to send a notification of financial aid? I got one this morning that said I had received a school scholarship, work-study and loans. As far as I know I am still on the waitlist but this was kind of giving me hope that maybe I am getting pulled off? Then again they might just do this so in case you get in you are able to get financial aid. Let me know if you have any ideas. I am afraid to get my hopes up for no reason!

I just had my interview a few weeks ago and was deferred. I emailed them and they said my interview went very well but that they were worried about my last few semesters. i told them i was taking a few 300/400 level science classes this semester that i would get As in. what do you think my realistic chances are?

If you're talking about U of MN, they still have one more round of interviews. They usually start admitting from the ranked waitlist early May. The U of MN is really good at keeping people on the waitlist updated as to how many people have been accepted off the waitlist and what your current standing is as time goes on.

No matter where you are waitlisted, people drop later on as they get accepted at other schools allowing more people to matriculate. There's always hope!
