    Congrats! I had no idea that they would start interviewing so early, I thought they would interview after the deadline. I guess I was wrong. I better get my application in soon.

    If you don't mind me asking, when did you turn in your application? What were your stats like?

    I've just received an interview invite for that day too. Dana92085, where do you live? I'm in Arlington, TX. Does anyone know how soon after the interview they would give you an answer whether you're accepted or rejected?

    Hi Timbo301,

    Do you know how soon we'd typically receive an acceptance/rejection if we interviewed in late Jan? Thanks.

    Don't they have rolling admissions? So if you applied later, you'll probably get a later interview? I'm hopeful :)

    it takes 2-3 weeks for your letter. its going to come in a flat envelope, whether it is a rejection or acceptance. and yes, it is rolling admissions, so just b/c you didn't get first interviews doesn't mean you won't get one. There are 10 interview dates i believe.

    Hey dana and cuti, looks like I'll be joining you in the great city of Houston on Jan. 27. Let's decide what we're going to wear so we can color coordinate our outfits. I'm thinking red muscle shirt and red and white jams. Or maybe a red Speedo, ten gallon hat, and no shirt. I'd have to get the Brazilian wax for that one though. Anyway, I look forward to hanging out with you guys for FOUR HOURS!! Man, why so long? They might as well ask us to bring our sleeping bags.

    P.S. Hey Tim, what was you writing and teamwork exercise about? Also, could you introduce me to Yao Ming? Thanks.

    Sorry, dana, but a PJ party won't work for me. I'm an au naturel sleeper, if you know what I mean. Maybe if it wasn't so cold out...

    But anyway, I live in Wichita Falls. It's a six hour drive from here to Houston, but what are you going to do, right.

    I'm really psyched about this interview. We are going to kick butt, I know it. If a group from SDN is all going to interview on the same day, we should try and get together for dinner the night before. Anything to help us feel more comfortable during the interview process. Plus networking is always good. What does everyone think? Don't be shy. Let's enjoy this process! Maybe we could even talk Tim into joining us so we could wring more info from him.

    ha! yeah...usually an interviewer gets like 3 weeks to complete it except for the first batch of interviews that receives it the date y'all did. All Xmas break for me was nonstop continuous thinking, editing, reediting, and more editing those forms i had to fill. they were a lot of things to complete and some were kinda repetitive. i think they do that just so they see you are consistent and not lying through your teeth. haha. if yall wanna chat, IM me at vaughntim on aim. i am bored as hell.

    hey jimmy! whats up man. my first semester was definitely the hardest semester ive had in all my life. the material is doable but its a lot of information to tackle in such a short time. it just wasn't that but w/ Rita cancelling a week of school, everything was in a time crunch. it was at least for me. by the end of the semester, after one test was another test i had to cram for and so on. i think that was how it was for the last 6 tests. lol. but i really enjoy it here. i would suggest taking biochem and physiology. it can be overwhelming if you are a person w/o a degree and just taking the bare minimum to a 4000 level class of physiology or biochemistry. its a lot of information to understand in the short period of time they give you. theres always something going on every week, so you really have to manage your time wisely. i kinda enjoyed biochem (every test except for the 2nd test) lol. are you applying this year? i hope you do man =) ttyl

    I just had a quick question about the UH application. I heard that applicants were required to write a personal statement last year and I just wanted to clarify that it is not required for Fall 2008 applications. If someone could please let me know, that would be great.

    I think that you only give them one if you actually get an interview.

    Just to clarify, except for the last 3 posts on this thread, this thread is from 2005. Those that got in when this thread was "active" are now P3's.

    I think that you are in the first group. Other people with an interview have mentioned Jan 25th as their date.

    thanks knickerbocker. also, do you happen to know that if i already sent in my transcript before the fall semester ended and my application already shows reviewed and completed, is it necessary to send in my updated transcript with the fall grades in order to receive an interview offer?

    I'm not sure, but I went ahead and sent another set a transcripts just to be safe. You might try calling or emailing them about it.

    No, it's not necessary to send them your fall transcript for your application to be reviewed. I got an interview date with them even though I have not yet submitted my fall transcript. When they invite you in they will tell you to bring a sealed copy of your latest transcript to your interview or you can turn/mail them to the admission office beforehand. But, I think its better to turn them in now, if you already have them.

    Also If you go to the old enrollment services page you can request them to deliver your transcript to the college of pharmacy. This option is free!!:D

    Hey ethyl methyl are you done with your questionare and essay yet?
    Do you think it matters how soon we turn it in, as long as it is before the deadline?

    Not yet. I don't think it matters how soon you submit it. I think I will need all the time I can get though. I started my essay but I still have to work on it more. How are you preparing for the interview?

    I am going to review all the feedbacks and postulate responses for most of the questions. Also go over how I answered the questionare and try to keep my answers to the interview questions close to how I have answered the questionare. I think I will handle it about the same way I handle job interviews, and I am great with those. Hope it is close to the same format.

    I can't find anyone that will tell me about their experience with the timed writing or the group activity. all they say is have fun with the group assignment.

    Maybe we should take a note from the earlier posts on this thread and get as many of us together before hand and at least get somewhat comfortable with each other? just a suggestion.
