BESTPHARMACY said:It is only Feb. I doubt you'll hear from them now. have PATIENCE! ANother thing, I hate people who apply to more than one different professional school. It shows a lack of sincerity to one thing. It seems like the only reason so many people are going to pharmacy because that is where the big bucks are at. IMHO, I see you not getting into pharm school.
Hope we both hear from them soon. I don't know about their "open consideration list"....and i hope we don't have to worry about that list. Good luck.mikey_rx said:Hey Smilinh,
I interviewed Jan.14th and I havn't heard back from them. I remember they said 3-4 weeks so I am hoping for something soon as well. The official website said this:
The bulk of the decision letters will be mailed in late March and continue through late April. Very strong candidates may hear within four weeks of their interview date.
So who knows. Hopefully I'm a strong candidate. Do you know if they have a "open consideration list" type of thing like USC? G'luck to ya. Let me know how things go.
yeah, some people just don't have balls since they are applying to multiple professional schools (unless they are truly interested in more than one profession...riiiiight) but best of luck to faradayampereBESTPHARMACY said:ANother thing, I hate people who apply to more than one different professional school.

i think those who are offended (defensive, get on the backs of others, etc.) feel that their spot is being taken by someone who isn't even sure about what they want to do.faradayampere said:I am not sure why people have to look up to see if the poster posted in other forums or not. Also, I don't understand why people are against people who applied to different fields. In fact, I know someone who applied to different majors when he applied to grad schools [he also applied to MD as well]. I mean the majors are totally unrelated (for example, Mech Eng at 1 school, chemistry at another school, biophysics at another one, etc...). At least, there are some common things between pharmacy and medical school. Furthermore, pharm schools want to have people from different background. They definitely welcome students who were engineering or humanities major (I'm sure if they want homogenous class [or people who truly interested in 1 field since they were born], then they would restrict the applicant pool to only bio majors). Anyway, just want to mention that there are people who are interested in different stuffs (don't get me wrong on this -- but just open your textbooks ... some names, like Gauss, Newton, Bernoulli, were mentioned in different subjects)
Good luck to everyone who is waiting to hear
I think the idea that people are applying to another professional school as a backup is the main reason people get upset. It's kind of insulting. That being said, I really think it's in your best interest to make up your mind about what career you want to go into and pour all of your energy and enthusiasm into attaining that goal rather than applying to a bunch of programs and seeing where the chips fall. It's such a huge commitment to go into med, dent, nursing, pharm or any graduate program and I would hate to be in a program I wasn't sure about.bananaface said:There is some underlying defensiveness, since some applicants primarily interested in medical school are using pharmacy school as a backup. My feeling is that someone truly interested in medicine would beome a reapplicant, though, instead of abandoning the field.
congrats I haven't heard anything from them yet...so I don't.....we'll see. Are you gonna go to UOP, mikey?mikey_rx said:Hey Smilinh,
I just got my acceptance letter today. Hope you did as well. G'luck to everyone else.
