I saw no one created this thread, and since Early Admissions' deadline is approaching, this could help quite a few people.
I'm applying for Early Decision (haven't submitted but will soon), did anyone have already submitted theirs? When do you usually get an invitation for interview?

I've submitted to PharmCAS and have been verified. Still working on my supplemental app (finishing up today), taking the PCAT on 9/9. Im also applying for early decision. I'm assuming that they won't be taking very long to reach out to people for interviews, since the two ED interview days are 9/30 and 10/7.

Although I didn't do early admission, I've submitted and been verified. I've also completed the supplemental application. Just playing the waiting game right now.

I applied ED and got accepted into the program! I'm going to post my stats and some info just to help out below:
My stats were as follows:
GPA 3.7
PCAT 91st percentile
~ 2 years of pharmacy experience
Several leadership positions
I wrote and edited my PHARMCAS essay within a two week time period, and basically just wrote my supplemental app replies in one shot and had my friend review them and give me some tips.
The interview was surprisingly chill. Don't stress too much over it, but at the same time prepare adequately. The interview questions were pretty basic (just Google pharmacy school mock interview questions and they're quite similar). The whole purpose of the interview is to get to know you off paper. If you were invited for an interview, you're obviously qualified to go to UF COP. They already know what's on your application and just want to get a feel for your personality.
Also, working as a team is very very important to them since the new curriculum is all team-based learning. Keep this in mind during interview day.

Best of luck to you all and hope to see you next year!

Thanks so much for the info elli12! My stats are very similar! My GPA was 3.8, PCAT: 89, ~ 2 years pharmacy experience, several leadership positions. I'm super scared about the interview though in regards they'll ask me something I have no clue about.

Actually, my interviewer said if they asked a question I didn't know the answer to, I could just let him know and he would move on! Thankfully that didn't happen but it was nice to have the option :)

Wow that's really nice! Hopefully I get that option as well. Did you only have one interviewer and how long did the interview last for you? Are you able to tell me how many questions they asked you? If not it's okay :) congrats on your acceptance by the way!!

You will have two interviewers. My interviewers were two professors and they were really nice! I'm told all of the interviewers were very nice though so don't worry about getting a mean one, haha. The interview was around 20 minutes long, and to be honest I can't remember around how many questions they asked. Unfortunately, I feel it would be unfair to let people know the interview questions in advance, but if you just Google mock interview questions or look them up on a career center page, they're quite similar! I did a mock interview at my school's career center and I feel it really helped to prepare me. Good luck!

I'm also applying for Fall admissions for 2017 and have finished all my applications. I just retook my PCAT this past week. I was wondering if it would be okay if I call up the admissions committee to ask where I am at along the process? What do you all think?

I have an interview coming up on 11/28!! Super excited but very nervous because I tend to choke up in interviews... The gainsville campus is my preference. PCAT composite 90, Science GPA 3.25, and 1.5 years of pharmacy experience.

Hi everyone!
I'm taking the PCAT in january, and haven't sent in my pharmcas yet. Just waiting on the LOR's.
Do you think it might be too late for me to apply?
I have a 3.35 overall gpa, 3 years as a tech at CVS, and volunteering at the hospital for the past 3 months.
I am a florida resident, double majoring in Biology and Neuroscience at FAU.
I would love to get some opinions on whether or not I should still apply this late. I'm currently studying for the PCAT with Dr. collins hoping I can get a competitive score.
Thanks!!

How much time passed between your pharmcas verification and the interview invite?

Good luck! I'm pretty sure that once you interview you're in. I'm not sure that anyone has heard anything from them this week.

Congrats!!! Aside from early decision, has anyone been interviewed for orlando? Seems like just Gainesville people, not sure if they review apps based on your first choice.
