    Haven't heard anything yet either. The summer semester isn't over until Aug 4 and I think they are waiting for famu students to finish up their pre-reqs before making a decision on transfer students. But apparently we have made it to the final cut because everytime I call they tell me that "if you haven't received a rejection letter by now that that is a good thing." Plus haven't some people received rejection letters already? This is a hard lession in patience.
    I was wondering if anyone has called famu lately to see what the status is?

    People BS on this "network" alot. I haven't heard anything about the pharmacy school being on probation. I know that the university is under alot of suspension in regards to the upper administrators and money. But I haven't really been following the story.

    So back to the original subject of this thread...has anyone received anything from famu yet?

    Like Jaderok said - there are some serious issues with the administration at FAMU - and I have read that the college of Pharmacy is somewhat involved (adjusting of grant money and the lack of statistical information regarding students). All of that is related to the administration though, and not the school. This is what I gathered from reading an article nearly 3 months ago... There is no probation though... and it doesn't look like there will be. FAMU is on par with UF and Nova for passing the NAPLEX (those statistics are posted)

    At any rate - I hope you hear something soon...

    Did you get in? Sallie Mae sent me something regarding my FAMU loans today, very strange. I was rejected from them in March. Odd indeed.

    Congrats to all who have gotten in...I got my acceptance letter yesterday, we have to send a form in by the 7th saying whether we accept or reject admission, so that they can ensure a full class by the time school starts. Three other people I know got in but have decided to go elsewhere, so hopefully more of you will hear something soon...Good Luck!

    That is what they have been saying since May. The semester ends today so I am guessing they will make their decisions next week. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.
