    Yes. All lectures on the TC campus are streamed through ITV to Duluth and vice versa. There are professors for each class on both campuses.

    They said they fill both campuses proportionally as they go, so they should be equally full percentage-wise. But me and someone else from my same interview date got assigned to Duluth when we asked for Twin Cities so I guess more people are asking for Twin Cities.

    For people who were accepted already, did any of you guys get an email about a fellowship scholarship application? It seems pretty competitive and only one applicant can get it.

    I thought I can tolerate the coldness, but went to Wisconsin last week and barely survived over there. I know it's a silly reason but don't see myself over there anymore. Also, My interview was at duluth. As an OOS, I don't think its worth it anymore.

    I submitted my application to UMN at the end of December and haven't heard anything back yet. Does anybody know how long it usually takes or maybe applied around the same time and heard back already?

    Hi! I applied 12/6 and was invited to interview on 12/11. I would email the pharmacy school admissions team and ask them about it. It could be that they’re slowing down their turnaround time now since it’s getting later in the cycle.

    Heyy just interviewed today (1/20), will post as soon as I get answer.

    Gray can you share your thoughts on the interview? I felt that the middle of my interview was just question after question. Thought we would keep going on forever. The beginning and end was pleasant though!

    I got into Maryland and they're giving me scholarship money. Plus I'd love to do residency at Johns Hopkins or Walter Reed, and the predicted job growth in Maryland is 14% vs 1% in Minnesota.

    The interview itself was not that bad in my opinion, however I did have difficulty asking my interviewer questions at the end. I think I asked maybe 4 questions.

    Hi guys, I will have my interview on February 7th via skype since I am an international student. I am a bit stressed out because it will be my first interview tho. Do you have any tips about the interview?

    I ask questions sort of like interview styled lol. Like what made you choose your discipline and why did you decide not to do retail? Things like that. Also look up some current event things happening in pharmacy and ask them their opinion on that too. Hope I helped some!

    Hi Dary, my best advice for you is to know exactly why you chose pharmacy. Since you’ll be skyping try to avoid nervous habits (I tend to fidget and rock back and forth). Good luck!

    I hope your interview went well. Did they happen to tell you how many seats were remaining? I’m nervous about my interview too coming up in March. I’m kind of worried about the seating because I know March is the last month for interviews and there are limited seatings. Thanks

    Hey, according to their data of interview on Feb 9th, there are still 16percent of seats left. Don't worry too much, what you can do is be well prepared and stand out among others. I am pretty sure they would remain some seats for further interviewers.

    cool! I have quite a few years of retail (chain and independent pharmacy), inpatient, Omnicare long-term care, and tech school. I'm older than most of you here though :)
