    Hello folks, I'm here again. I just find that interviews are annoying because you need to drive far away from your state, which takes a long time (I also don't have a car). I am asking you guys if you know any schools that do not require interview, or has regional interview sites on Seattle, WA (such as Creighton University). I have looked through most of the the schools, and here are the schools that do not require interviews, or just require a phone interview.

    University of Connecticut
    University of Florida
    Midwestern-Chicago
    Butler university
    Ferris State University
    Northeastern University
    University of Michigan
    University of Mississippi
    St. Louis College of Pharmacy (deadline has passed)
    University of Montana
    Long Island University
    Albany University
    North Dakota State University
    Ohio Northern University
    University of Toledo
    University of Rhode Island

    Make the list longer! I'm sure that will benefit everyone! :)

    You might want to mark which ones are private schools. There's no sense in applying to state schools if you live out of state.

    University of Connecticut
    Northeastern University
    University of Montana
    Long Island University
    Albany University
    Ohio Northern University
    University of Rhode Island

    You have to be a resident for these schools:
    University of Florida (although easy to get in, they never accept out-of state students).

    That's unusual. There is usually more than enough qualified applicants that live in state. My class at UF has one out of state person. You must have extremely good stats. For most applicants though, it's not worth it.

    Look at these stats http://www.aacp.org/Docs/MainNavigation/InstitutionalData/6863_Tab8PSAR.pdf

    Many schools accept out-of-state students.

    UF is one of the few schools that doesn't accept out-of-state students (or very very few).

    I was soooo discouraged when I read Arkansas requirements....No OUT OF STATE applicants.... :( Their requirements seemed quite fair especially when it came down to gpa.

    I'm sure the hundreds of students who got reject letters last year love you saying that it is easy to get in. :(

    The assistant manager of my last job went to UF as an out-of-state student. If the qualifications are high enough, an out-of-state applicant has a small chance.

    I can assure you that UF is NOT an easy school for someone to be accepted. I'd hardly call ~300/2000+ "easy."

    I am applying for next year, and I don't think is easy! In fact I am terrified!

    I think the academically priviledged high GPA/90+ PCAT people need to learn some compassion! I though this is a required personality trait to be in Pharmacy anyway... :thumbdown:
