I'm filling out my applciation for U-Houston pharm but I noticed that there isn't a section where you add your personal statement or a section for additional essays. Does UH require a personal statement, seems like I'm over looking something. :confused:

I didn't see anything about a PS either. That was cool with me because I've already written three for UT and one for TTU. Never thought I could get so sick of talking about myself.

Only one personal statement, huh. Well I officially hate you all.

Seriously though, this whole UT process is driving me nuts. According to the US News & World Report they are the second best pharm school in the nation, but their whole application system seems antiquated and sad compared to TTU and UH. I guess when you're good you don't have to try.

While I've got so many UT alums around, let me ask you: how long did it take to get an up or down after you completed your undergrad application?

Sorry for hijacking your thread, PharmEm. This is the last question I'll ask.

What do you mean by up or down??? :confused:
If you're talkin' about acceptance to pharmacy school, I'll have to let you know in the Spring.

that1guy,
don't worry about my thread, I got my question answered about UH. As for your up and down question, I don't understand what you mean. When it comes to the UT pharm app, you have to apply to the college of pharmacy and with UT in general.

You guys are killing me.

What I meant was, how long did it take them to review your application when you applied to UT as an undergrad? The UT website says that most undergraduate applicants applying for the fall semester receive an answer in May. Keep in mind that the UT COP won't even consider me until I've been accepted as an undergrad transfer. Also keep in mind that the priority deadline for applying to the UT COP is Feb 1, and the overall deadline is Mar. 1. Which means that if UT admissions doesn't accept me as an undergrad until May, UT COP will never even consider me, and basically I'm screwed.

What makes matters worse is that, because I'm an active student, UT admissions won't consider my application complete until the current semester is over and they've received an updated transcript. So I'm looking at about late Dec. or early Jan. before UT undergrad admissions will even add me to the list of the kajillion students they are considering for undergrad admission.

What really bothers me about all this is that I am at the mercy of undergraduate admissions but i have no plans on becoming a UT undergrad!

Then again, maybe you guys finished your UT undergrad application and got accepted a week or two later. Please tell me that's what happened.

I dont think I have good news for you, in high school i applied by the Feb 1st deadline, and didnt know i was accepted until May. :( . However, I know there are many students that apply to the COP that dont attend UT. They must have a different process for those students that ultimately wish to attend one of UT's graduate programs. Give Dr. Wilcox's office a call, I'm sure they can give you some answers about that whole process. Good luck.

I think you can relax a bit, but you should call them. I know that they check to see if you have an undergrad app on file and the transfer applications tend to go more quickly than a regular app. I'd like to think that they review your pharmacy school application before hearing from the undergrad folks, but that may not be true. Other students from different schools have managed to be accepted to UT, so I'm sure you're not alone. Check the admission statistics to make yourself feel better.

Thanks PharmEm, julie, sweet, and wheels. I'm going to contact the UT admissions office and ask for early consideration. If they say no, I'll just relax and keep my fingers crossed.

Let's keep each other updated.
