Brown University. I submitted my pharmCAS app Oct. 1st, and the supplemental Oct. 31st.

I was wondering what is the time frame after receiving the application confirmation email. For instance, how long until they send me the course evaluation email, interview invitation and acceptance email/letter after the interview.

Thank you in advance.

Hey PharmerTK,
I was also interviewed on 10/14, but USC put me in an active consideration.
Do you mind sharing your stats?
I am from UCSD, and I just graduated from UCSD with BS in biochemistry/Cell Biology.

Wow... very impressive. Is USC your first choice? How was the writing portion of the interview? I couldn't finish one of my body paragraph due to lack of time. I wonder how much the written portion weigh for the admission.

Sorry for the late response. I thought the writing portion was alright. I pretty much did the standard intro, 3 bodies, and a mini conclusion format. I'm pretty sure as long as you explain your reasoning and train of thought, everything will be fine. I will most likely decline my offer for USC and will be attending UMN.

Thanks. It seems like 11/18 candidates are still waiting for decisions.

I am assuming that they are delaying their decisions to admit applicants and put other applicants on active considerations due to a thanksgiving week. Which pharmacy schools did you apply other than USC?

Be patient. I am sure they will get back to you tomorrow or sometime this week. I am also waiting just like you. I also need to know my admission status before I make a deposit at LLU.

I applied to UOP, USC, Western, LLU, California Northstate, CHSU, west coast, and Pacific of Oregon. I got interviews from all of these schools. I received rejection from Western, and a hold from UOP. USC gave me an active consideration. Only California Northstate and LLU accepted me so far. I declined California Northstate due to high tuition. I will put my deposit on LLU if USC gives me an active consideration.

I've been hearing a lot of mixed feelings from both Western and USC. Having trouble evaluating both schools without some sort of bias. In terms of obtaining a residency and academics, what would you all say- USC or Western?

I just don't understand why Western University has a tuition similar to USC when USC is far more superior than Western University. I agree with what EleanorRigbyyy said.

Western is so not worth it since they have SC like tuition...at least with SC you know it's ranked in top 10, although, that still doesn't make it worth to attend there also cuz of the high cost..just personal opinion

To the original question: I went to USC for undergrad :)

I just got my interview invitation for February 17, and it indicates that 'you will prepare an essay either before or after the interview.' Can anyone who's already gone through the interview process for USC offer any advice on this?

You are going to have to write an essay on something ethical. Just be calm, and write about the subject. No need to study, but practice your writing skills. You' ll have about 50 minutes.
