    Anyone got waitlisted at Touro? Anyone who was waitlisted got accepted yet? Anyone from Friday April 13th interview got accepted? I interview on April 13th and got high alternative status. Just wondering how it works. Thanks.

    I think people on the wait-list generally have pretty decent chances at Touro.

    Good luck.

    Hey you guys! I went to the March 30th interview and I just found out two days ago that I got accepted!! I'm waitlisted at USC and Western University, but I'm not going to take my chances. I will put down my $2,000 deposit. Did anyone else get in that wants to move in with me? The graduate students there told me it's best to rent out a house.

    Hi. I'm not going to Touro, but do live near Vallejo. I recommend searching CraigsList for housing. You'll find a lot there.

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/apa/321688752.html
    this is for a 3 br house... but i know nothing of the location.

    You'll want to search in the East Bay; neighborhoods Vallejo/Benicia. You could search Fairfield/Vacaville too, but keep in mind that traffic can get pretty hectic in the mornings, especially if you'll have early classes. You'll be caught in the commute traffic.

    Hey all, I interviewed on April 12th and I just got my letter Saturday saying that I am accepted!!! I am so excited, I thought my interview didn't go that well because I felt like I jumped the gun so to speak on answering two of the questions asked and I don't know if that came across as trying to monopolize the interview. Well, I guess I did something right because I'm in!!! Now I just have to find $2000 to put down my deposit LOL

    My interview was on the same day as yours. I'm on the alternate waitlist as well. I think they're still interviewing through May :( . I just wish that they stop the interviews and start pulling people off the waitlist.

    pardon me, this may not be the right thread to ask this, but where is touro, whats its ranking as a pharmacy college and is there anything particularly different about it? i ask because i keep seeing it mentioned on the boards, and i wonder why, especially when i have never heard of it before. is it new? thanks

    Touro is in Vallejo, CA, more general, in northern part of CA. It's a new pharmacy program that started a few yrs ago. They haven't graduated their first class yet, so no ranking from what I know. What is special about them is their 2+2 program curriculum- 2 yrs of classroom/lecture and 2 yrs. of clerkship/experential.

    string theorist- Touro U is currently the only program in the US to offer a 2+2 program. I believe Western has 1.5 years of rotation but still not 2 :)

    I think it said that they will start pulling people off the waitlist in June. Check the FAQ section of the letter they sent.

    Hi bth7,

    Everytime I read your post, I feel bit relaxed. But do you know, if your statement is true for this year pharmacy as well? It doesn't seem like there is any movement in the high-alternate waitlist yet? Please enlighgten us with your knowledge.

    Thanks

    you know, in the letter they said they will pull off people from the waitlist but you are right there has been no movement yet. Not that I heard of anyway. I hope they contact us soon and give us an update on the status. I wish they had given us a number on the waitlist this way at we would have a better idea of our chances. Sigh...

    got the update from touro today. Don't know if they have started pulling people from the list yet but they have split the high alternative list into two tiers. It really doesn't look good. Good thing I have already started my application for the next cycle.

    I got the update in mail. It was dated June 21st. People on the waitlist would be contacted between now and August 1st which is the first day of mandatory orientation. Good Luck!
