    I signed up for the 3-4 time slot. Maybe there's one person per time slot. If that's the case we can gauge how many people they're inviting for interviews!! That's only my guess though...

    I just got my invite too!!! I really hope they're not interviewing too many people, cuz that would just waste everyone's time and the interviewee's money. I would have signed up for the 4th, but I already have an interview scheduled then (although at a school lower on my list). I'm on the 18th now from 3-4pm. Anyone else on this day/time slot??

    Being an out-of-state prospective student, I'm going to pick the later January dates, probably January 28, because I don't want to be caught up in the post-New Year's and/or post-Christmas traffic.

    Did you put "Rockford" or "no preference" as your campus choice?

    If you get accepted to the Rockford campus you have to go there. Unless the spots at Rockford fills up first. Although I've been told by the admission's staff that never happens. Is anyone else interviewing 1/4 @ 3-4 pm?

    Oh no I loved Colorado! I didn't get to see Denver much though, which I was sad about... Though everyone says it is a great city.
    At any rate, I am an international student and have never been to Chicago, so I want to use this interview opportunity to see the city as well :) Also, the school is supposed to be great and, well, maybe I'll like it more than Colorado. I had to pay the deposit for Colorado though and that was painful, way too much money.
    I seriously wish I were a citizen just so it would have been easier to choose a school (I would have just gone to one in my state since that would be much cheaper).

    My husband and I both got invites, but we declined so hopefully that opens up a few more. It's just too late to start considering another school, especially when we've already interviewed and been accepted to other schools. Sorry UIC :(

    Hey everyone,
    I was wondering do you pay the supplemental fee via online portion of the application or do we mail it in with the rest of the materials with check? Thanks! I emailed them but they didn't respond, they must be swamped.

    Yea it's terrible. Well, I hope your interview goes well and you get placed in the Chicago campus (I'm assuming that's what you would rather want, based on your previous posts). Do you go to school here in the US? Where are you from? :) And is Chicago your first choice?

    I hope it goes well for you too. I haven't been to Chicago so I didn't really have a preference but seems like Chicago would've been a better choice ha. I am from Bangladesh and currently studying at Minnesota State University. The U of MN is my first choice but I got put on the ranked waitlist fml :(.. so my second and third choices are Madison and UIC respectively.

    What about you? :)

    I'm from Turkey. I actually graduated from Rice University in 2010, now I'm taking some pre-reqs. I don't really have a first choice, actually, I'm just going to schools trying to figure out which one I fit in. So far my favorite is UColorado! I really liked there program BUT I'm hoping to fall in love with UIC :) and get accepted. I am not sure about UNC... didn't hear back yet, so no need to think about it much I guess. I actually am applying to U of MN as well, but uhhh I was too lazy after sending all the apps and I haven't finished theirs yet I know I should. I paid their fee too haha. Oh man...

    I assume you have your grades for Fall semester already. Send them as soon as possible, the earlier you do it the faster your application is processed.



    Good luck to all!

    For the people who interviewed/ were accepted (regular decision): how long after submitting your supplement did you hear back about an interview? PharmCAS was mailed out on 12/05 for me and I received the UIC supplement on the same day. I sent out everything within two weeks (just confirmed that they have my supplement materials over the phone).

    I sent my supplemental around 10/25 and heard back for interview 12/12. As far as I know, UIC has not interviewed/accepted anyone and just started sending out interview invites.
