    I did. Haven't gotten anything ther than a "we got your application, please be patient" email.

    Did you do ED? I didn't and I figured that's why I haven't gotten much.

    Yes, I did ED, but I got the same email as you, and they also said "interviews for ED will be taking place September 29th and October 13th."
    Maybe they review the regular applications after they done with EDs.

    thank you for your msg.
    i am concerning because all my stats are about the average but i don't have any experience in pharmacy.
    (just medical and dental, and research about drug development)
    so I am not sure if I should retake pcat in october or not.

    If you're hitting the averages, you'll probably get an interview.

    However, the lack of pharmacy experience may be brought up during the interview, so have a response prepared for that. Your drug development research is something you should stress as a part of your pharmacy interests.

    Don't worry about the experience. Two of my friends got into UMD last year with PCAT score of 85 and 92 Percentile without any pharmacy experience.

    I applied the same day for ED, but I haven't heard any thing.

    Hana 2017, sent you my stats and info over PM.

    One reason why I may be "desirable" is because I'm from Oregon and may offer some of that "geographic diversity." The only two schools I have interviews with at the moment are on the east coast and I suspect that's what's going on.

    Has anyone else received an interview aside from oregonian19? I applied for early decision and I contacted UMB through the phone and two days ago and was told no emails had been sent out for any interviews on tuesday. I have emailed them asking when is the last date, however no response was received.

    I applied regular decision on 10/13; app was verified on 10/19.

    Has anyone who didn't apply ED hear back from UMD yet?

    EDIT: Got an interview invite today! Anyone else?
