The email did say it takes about 6 to 8 weeks later to hear back from them. So it's still a bit early.

I applied Early Decision on September 4th, so far only received the email that it's in review! Apparently interviews begin early October?
They do. That's why I'm getting nervous. If I remember right the interviews for ED are the 5th, 12th, and 19th. I feel like it's a bad sign that I haven't been invited for an interview yet.

May I ask what your stats are? :)
I know my stats are somewhere on this site but I don't remember the exact thread.

GPA is a 3.42/ BS in biology
PCAT: 94%tile
Work experience:
-860ish hours in a retail pharmacy (still working), licensed pharmacy technician, completed pharmacy technicians University training courses through employer
-120 hrs at a pbm. Job is mostly entering prior authorizations and overriding dosage increases, providing formulary and benefit info to physicians, pharmacists and patients depending on the specific health plan (still working)
Volunteer:
-80 hours as a certified English tutor w/ an organization
-300ish hours at a free clinic
-120ish hrs in a ltc facility as a pt care volunteer
LORs: 3 total, one is from my pharmacy manager (UofM cop alum)


My lack of research and my GPA are my biggest concerns. In my junior and senior year my non science GPA and sGPA ranged from 3.7-4.0 and pcat bio and chem scores were 98 and 96 so hopefully that makes up for it.

What about you?

Has anyone heard anything back? For what it's worth I did work with a U of M P1 at the clinic where I volunteer this past weekend. He told me that he was notified for his regular decision interview 2 days before.

Edit: Just heard back today and got invited for an early decision interview.

Nope. If you're with preferred admissions doesn't that mean you're basically accepted? I'm also Interviewing on the 12th though.

Lol omg my stats are kinda laughable compared to yours, it's a little funny but not really. Tbh I'm pretty surprised I got an invite for ED. I thought I'd be deferred to regular right off the bat. Thanks though, I'm gonna need all the luck I can get :happy:

I was struggling with questions to ask as well but when I took some time to look around their website and read about the program questions came naturally.

Sort of. But, you still have to go through the interview. I am not sure how critical the interview is.

Is there anything else we're supposed to do until we get the official letter besides that background check?

Edit: Have you gotten your letter in the mail yet?

Hello everyone,
I have an interview coming up and was wondering for those of you who interviewed or about to interview. How did you have your resume, did you guys limit to one page or does it matter to have it longer than that?
Thank you in advance!
