    Thanks for sharing. Are you from Iowa City or where re you originally from ? Did you do all your prerequisite at UI ? Which interview day that you chose? I am from Cedar Rapids. I had bachelor in Biology from Iowa with 3.6 GPA this year, all prerequisites 3.8 GPA, PCAT is 90% and I had different extracurricular activities as well, but I don’t have pharmacy experience either. I think you got that early interview invitation because your really high GPA and PCAT score. They just received mine this week so I think they would send me invitation soon too. You will be fine you just need to be yourself during interview. Good luck on that

    Wow your stats look good too. A bachelor degree is a huge plus!
    I'm originally from Vietnam but have been living in Iowa City for seven years. I've been doing all my science prerequisites at Iowa, except statistics and physics as well as other prerequisites and electives which I took at a community college.
    I've picked the January 20th 12:45 (not a morning person though :D ). I'm sure they'll give you an offer. But anyway, how many schools have you applied for?

    That’s nice !! I have some Vietnamese friends too in Cedar Rapids. Do you mind I ask what is your Vietnamese name ? Which community college that you took classes from ? Are you in VSA at Iowa ? I applied 10 places I just want to get in somewhere :)

    Sorry but I'll keep it secret though (kinda shy :D) I took those classes at Kirkwood. And when I'm at Iowa, I have to work a lot of hours so I haven't join any club or organization. Kinda an introvert, also. :D
    Wow, that's a lot of money, 10 schools! I'm 100% sure that you'll get an offer at least from half of them with your good stats.

    I've only applied for Iowa. If I don't get it this time, I'll keep trying only for Iowa because I want to stay closed to my family.
    No, I work outside campus.
    I came straight to Iowa from Vietnam. That was a shock to me because I came here in the winter but I kinda get used to the cold now. The snow is pretty though.

    I lived in Cedar Rapids for a year before moving to Iowa City and have been living here since then.
    I hope to see you in the same class too. I promise I'll tell you my name then :D

    Hi everyone! I just received my invitation to interview! I will be coming from out of state (Boise, ID). I think I am going to chose the February 10th date from 12:45-4:30. Will anyone else be attending this interview?

    Have you done your prerequisites at the University of Iowa? I've learned that the average PCAT score in 2016 for Iowa pharmacy admission is 68% so if you get above 70% you should be fine.

    I actually got a 68. I got in the 90’s for bio and chem. I got a 59 in math because I wasn’t watching the time so I got thru like half of it and then reading is what really brought it down Lolol

    Do you have any pharmacy experience and/or bachelor degree (with a GPA above 3.5)? The admission committee often prefers those.
