    From my experience being here. Gainsville fills up first then orlando and then jacksonville. however you don't always get your preference. So I don't think It matters what campus really.

    UF will start looking at aps with 4.0sGPA and 90+ PCAT. Even if you dont have the stats they primarily look for, go ahead and apply as early as possible!

    PCAT=78% Writing 4
    GPA Overall 3.11
    Science and Math GPA 2.6
    Four letters of recommendation (3 from pharmacists)

    yes, he showed me the email. He will call UF tomorrow and see what's going on. He's stats are good, so he should have gotten an interview. But getting one without even doing the supplemental sounds weird to me.

    Where is everyone? :whoa:Too early?

    On a side note: Any present/former UF students have any advice for interview preparation? 2 weeks to go and the panic is setting in. I know that interviews at UF generally mean a good chance of acceptance, but with the reduced class size/no longer enrolling students at St. Pete, I wonder if the interview rate is also going down?:shrug:

    It seems UF is giving interviews without supplemental this year. He still has to complete the supplemental before the interview tho. And they started sending interviews to people with 3.0+gpa and 70+ pcat this year.

    Just submitted PharmCAS and supplemental tonight... How long until they'll receive anything? I know I'm not the earliest, but I feel like I'm still on a good timeline to get an interview early.

    When you all applied to UF, did you guys write out why you chose your preferences or anything in the boxes underneath the preferences?

    As long as your GPA and PCAT are solid you'll be fine.

    You got an interview. As long as you answered the questions you will get in. Uf doesn't interview a lot of students like other schools.

    How do you know you were denied?? By not receiving an interview offer from the Admissions Committee?? And if so do they send you a letter or email saying that they are denying your application??

    I haven't received anything either and neither has my friend...I called Mary Beth and she said they're doing things differently this year. We might get a reply tomorrow according to her.

    dang =/ sorry to hear that. The only reason I asked is because I have a 3.2 GPA and I'm taking the PCAT on friday and wanted to know what my chances were. My Organic Professor of 2 years received his doctorate there and one of my pharmacists graduated from there, they will both be giving me really well written LOR's and I would be completing their pre-req of HA&P 2 + MicroBio in the summer... but I think I'm going to hold off and not apply there

    You should always try man they might like you. I have a 3.9 GPA, 99 pcat, good letters and they haven't even called me. Apparently they have called other people. Just go for it, stats aren't everything, just numbers.
