ugh i wish they would just send everything all at once.
Hi guys, I just received a big yellow packet with my acceptance letter!!!! I am so excited!!!
I just got one today, too!! (interviewed jan 21)
Congrats! I also interviewed on the 21st so I'm hoping to find a yellow packet when I go back to the OC
My friend got hers today and she's from OCt interview. I'm crossing my fingers for mine.
guess i'll be getting the AC on tuesday...
so for those that received the acceptance packet, who is actually planning to attend usc? im asking this because i also got accepted to westernu and UOP, already put my deposit for uop since this was the school i got accepted to first and did not know if i was going to get into usc or western at that time. But i woould like to know ur thoughts about wer ur planning to go and what made u decided taht. I feel like i like uop alot, but usc and western are great schools too and closer to my house than uop. plus the 3 yr program scares me abit and having to fit in pharmacy hours in 3 years seems like too much also. So idk, but am defitnitely honored to be part of the small group of applicants who got chosen from 123 students, so this makes me more want to attend usc.
I received my acceptance packet today! I didn't think I'd get in bc it was my first interview & I was so nervous! I was in the AC list from the October interview.
Good luck to all of you.
did you interview in oct?
and i live really close to USC too..
Congratz .... Did any one get the package who lives in oc?!
well, ****. i mean you can't say for sure you're still on AC, but i know that feel..
mail didn't come yet, i'm going crazy right now
did your mail come yet?
wooo!!! got the big envelope as well! -from the oc
ohpues, best wishes to you! the anticipation does drive people nuts...
Congratulations to all of you guys!!! Welcome to the Trojans family. Are all of you will be attending this fall at USC?
Just got an acceptance! (I was pulled from AC from the Oct. interview)
Yea, im from Santa Ana
+1 Congrats Steven
anyone from norcal get a packet?
i'm from norcal and... no packet =[
Yay! I just checked my mailbox and I also got that big yellow envelope )))))!!!!!
(I interviewed in Oct as well)
FYI I live in Torrance, which is like 30 minutes away from USC.
Now it's time for me to decide which school I really wanna go to and spend my next 4 years at x)
Good luck to all of Oct and Jan interviewees
Thanks, and congrats to all others as well! I will most likely be attending USC! I only applied to 2 schools with this being one of them
wow you have guts to apply only to 2 schools. Congrats!
Question about the interview...Was it more conversational (kind of like UCSD where the interviewer just looked at my supplemental and came up with questions off the top of his head)? Or was it more typical straight and answer where the interviewer just went down his list of questions? Any weird curveball questions or just typical interview questions?
The interview was conversational. The questions asked were typical interview questions (for me), but it could be different for others depending on who you get as your interviewers.
Mine was straight off a list of questions. They did not have my file in front of them. Expect follow up questions and unexpected questions as well.
Be prepared for ANYTHING basically.
I got the acceptance letter yesterday too! was on the AC from oct
(in norwalk btw)
anyone who got accepted want to PM me? i have questions to ask, mostly AP scores and submitting the intent form.
What would you say was an unexpected question during your interview?
I think the hardest one for me was.... besides retail and outpatient pharmacy, what other areas of pharmacy have you explored or would be interested in?
That was a little difficult for me because I never really thought about it.
For those who got accepted, is there a facebook group started up already?
I have a question. I also received an acceptance to USC. If I'm currently taking a non-required class for Spring semester and would like to withdraw the class, would they revoke my acceptance? I took the class to just help me prepare in the future. Thanks!
If it's a non-required class they probably won't care but it's a good idea to just email or call them and ask. What class is it btw? If I were you I would just stick to it for personal enrichment/fun =) Unless it's costing you a lot...
It's Anatomy that's why I thought its going to be helpful. I'll try to call the admission to make sure before doing anything. Thanks!
I don't think we have a facebook group set up yet. Would you like to start one?
Aside from the acceptance package, did you guys get any information about when to get our shots and blood tested?
has anyone who received the acceptance packet also gotten an email acceptance? I recently changed my address and don't think they know that yet.
AC email (oct interview)
same here its really sad ....
ghoori, are you in norcal? lilshy, norcal?
i haven't gotten an AC email [at least yet]... i didn't get mail from usc on saturday either [but i'm in norcal]...
mail is coming anytime now! i hope a packet arrives
hii no, i'm actually from socal. eek hopefully you'll see that packet!
are there candidates that were accepted (for sure) not going to attend USC?
(hopefully more seats will open up for us AC people)
Is USC your first choice? So far there are only 75 people being accepted and I know a few that are waiting for ucsd or ucsf. Hopefully, they will give up their spots soon...
yes it is! i don't want to make excuses for why i couldn't perform my best during the interview, but i really hope my interviewer didn't deduct too many points for being extremely nervous i straight up told him that i was nervous too. i really hope i can get in this cycle!!!!!!
I hope ... Last year almost 250 got acceptated .... And 2 more interviews left.....
I wonder if they take into consideration that the applicants who interview in march will be "somewhat" more prepared than the october applicants because they either have had interviews from other schools or they're more prepared and mentally ready compared to the fall interviews. either way, hopefully they'll accept more!!
well, i hope you get an acceptance in the next couple of months! waiting these past five months have been close to torture for me... lol. but, i got my packet in the mail today, so i'm relieved.
i think they've accepted ~35 of those who interviewed in october, so it would make sense that they would accept more sometime later. i think it would be 10-20 more.
I hope so too.
Congrats! See you during orientation.
A lot of people will choose UCSF over USC.
I just found out that I have been accepted. (Interviewed on January 21 11:00AM session). I'm on the east coast, so I haven't gotten the mail yet. But I gave them a call and was told I was admitted.
