Does anyone know how long it takes for the supplemental application to arrive in the mail?

Aymik,

It should take about 5-7 business days...at least that's what the lady told me.

it is closed file. The interviewers don't know your grades or pcat scores but they have all your other info from pharmcas like your work experience and stuff like that.
Good luck to all those interviewing today.

For those still considering this school
I emailed Thomas Reindeers a couple of days ago; he replied and said

"Most of our successful applicants have a biology, chemistry or
biochemistry degree. Regardless of the degree, our Admissions
Committee prefers to see the science and math prerequisites
completed at a four year/degree granting college or university.
"

"
1. We do not have a minimum GPA for PCAT scores, but the average in each section of the PCAT is the 70th percentile and the average GPA is a 3.4.

2. The School does not evaluate transcripts of applicants until after they have been accepted into our program. Assistance in transcript evaluation is usually provided by pre-pharmacy/pre-health advisors at the applicant's undergraduate university.
"

Congrats! Is VCU your first choice? Also, if you don't mind sharing your interview experience.
Sorry guys
False alarm

I got a certiphi email for a background check and drug test and automatically assumed it was VCU. They didn't specify the school in the emails but after thinking about it, it's more likely it's Campbell cause I was accepted there earlier this week . Sorry sorry for misleading you guys ;(

Congrats me too! I think we met on the 8th. You're Roman right? We were the first ones to arrive and had the same interviewers.

Yeah, Roman. Was your name William? My apologies if I am wrong and remind me of your name again. Are you thinking of choosing VCU or waiting to hear back from other schools before making your decision?

I'm not sure yet. VCU has really impressed me, but I would probably like to hear back from a few other schools before I make a decision. Wbu?

After we submit the deposit (matriculation fee?) , were we supposed to receive some sort of confirmation regarding whether VCU received the deposit? Is there anything we need to do beyond this point (other than updating PharmCAS, sending transcripts, etc.)?

You should get a confirmation for the deposit in the mail within couple of weeks. You can also call the admissions office to make sure they've received it!

just got an acceptance email today! If we've already done a certiphi background check from another school do we have to take any action?
