    Has anyone heard anything from this school? I recently received an email and letter regarding their new supplemental website merge. It told me to double check my information and resubmit it along with recommendations and Pcat scores (which I don't know why they don't get it from Pharmcas). I went on the website, and most of my information was incorrect. Did anyone else experience this? kinda annoying.

    haven't heard anything, but I just checked the online switch and most of my info transferred over correctly. I have to redo a couple of sections, but nothing major. The biggest pain is the letters of recommendation. They already use PharmCAS so why am I having these LOR's sent to the school too? Ughh! I thought I was done doing applications months ago. :mad:

    I contacted them a while back to clarify what they want in the Secondary app. Yes, they want their applicants to ask their references to re-submit LORs electronically to them. They won't accept PharmCAS' LORs.

    Quite frankly, I'm not really sure why and I think it's an inconvenience to my references and pharmacist manager to not only send another reference letter but to also fill out an entirely different reference form. I don't really understand the point of them using PharmCAS, if they refuse to accept PharmCAS' electronic letters.

    Even though neither of my LoR's has resubmitted directly to Charleston (will hopefully be done this week), I just received an e-mail stating that I've been invited to interview January 30th. :D It sounds like they are doing a lot of interviews on this day, so has anyone else on here gotten the invite??

    Did everyone submit a $50 or $60 supplemental fee?

    PharmCAS list a supplemental fee of $60

    but

    UC's website list it as $50


    I'm gonna call tomorrow but just wanted to confirm with everyone who applied to UC.

    thanks

    i went in for my interview last year where they told me I had to submit some LOR. it's weird but you gotta do what you gotta do I suppose. The supplemental application site was messed up and it all got deleted so we did it twice but I hope it doesn't happen to you guys too.

    Was the 28th the last interview day? I think what they are doing is waiting until the end and gathering up everybody's files and distribute points to everyone... but yea it has been a very... very... long time. FEB was a long month for me which is ironic since its the shortest of all the others.

    I got accepted on March 20th. I am from WV but am unfamiliar with Charleston. Has anyone got any ideas on where to live? I have a dog so I may have a hard time finding an apartment....

    Are u looking to find a roommate? Have u looked on craigslist? A few wks ago I saw that they had small houses for rent... cheap rent... compared to cali anyway. Maybe those places will allow dogs. I'm sure they will help u with housing too so don't worry too much. But check craigslist just to get an idea of the place! Also, not sure if there is anything on the Charleston Gazette but check that out too. Gluck!
