    Hey! I've already started my application two questions for everyone:

    1. Wondering if anyone has context as to previous years' stats for interviews/admissions?

    2. The admissions website says that a few "highly qualified" applicants are offered admission each year, despite not having completely all required prerequisite courses → contingent on their completion by the end of August before entry.

    Can anyone comment on how how detrimental is it to have one missing academic pre-req when you've taken other related courses/excelled in other pre-requisites?

    The website says that not having completed all of the pre-requisites places you at a "competitive disadvantage" but does anyone know how they actually consider/contextualize those missing pre-requisites? I might take 6 courses next semester to grab a final pre-requisite at this point, if it's going to be a major concern!! Good idea? Bad Idea? Unnecessary?! Any comments would be unreal!

    Thanks!

    Hi guys, I was reading on the UW pharmacy website about admission interviews. They seem to select interview candidates based off your cGPA, experience working/volunteering in a pharmacy, and your AIF application which may include any other experience or extracurriculars that you've done. Then they state "the interviewers will not be informed of the applicant’s GPA, and the academic performance will not normally be further considered after the candidate reaches this second stage of the admissions process." So i'm presuming once you've been selected for an interview, you've already surpassed a huge hurdle of the application process? (I know with UofT's application process, they still combine your MMI score, cGPA, and PCAT for final evaluations).

    Any tips on how to prepare for panel-style interviews? Lastly I was wondering about the FSA, which they say is an integral component of the application process. Is that a test that people normally prep for? or should you be fine if your writing and math skills are adequate?

    Thanks!
