  1. Yeah, you are very correct, you will think I will get accepted sooner as in June, but unfortunately, this did not happen, the faculty has its selection criteria that we can't tell. I am an in-province applicant to conclude, but just to note that GPA is not the sole defining criteria for admission, letter of intent and interview are also a big factor. The faculty knows best!
  2. The faculty did not give a concise reason, the letter I got said "after going through your application we regret to inform you that the admission committee could not grant you admission" Now here is the truth, I had a 3.88 in my first semester and a 3.45 in my second semester because of personal life issues. I believe was the reason I did not get in the first time because they need students who can do well in both the fall and winter semester. If that makes sense to you!
  3. @InterinPharmYeah for sure I know a fellow who got in with a 3.4ish GPA, he told me the father is a pharmacist and he had lots of experience shadowing at his father's pharmacy. Always a good thing to give it a shot you never know what will be your biggest contributing factor.
  4. it's almost impossible for you to finish with student loan of $80,000 or lower including your pre-requisite years except you have 50% support from parents.
  5. A friend of mine in the second year of the program told me that in the first year students are automatically enrolled into courses so we don't have do anything for now ..... hopefully the information is accurate
  6. Thanks very much UhhhhhOkay ...... I was just wondering if registration for courses are done individually or they will do that for us
  7. Update!! I received my acceptance letter yesterday afternoon around 1:30pm. Stats pGPA: 3.85 cPGA: 3.79 Best year: 3.91
  8. For those who have been accepted and have enroll for classes, can you guys see how many spots are left if any at all?!!!!!!
  9. I know U of A is the least transparent university as concerns their admission process, I will also try and go talk to them so that they can tell me where am lacking in the application, I strongly believe I am competitive for the pharmacy application. Do I need to book an appointment to talk to them or I can just walk in?
  10. That's a very good statement, I am standing with a cGPA of 3.79, pGPA of 3.85, best yr GPA 3.91 and I think my LOI was decent enough, though not very sure about my interview but haven't heard from admission committee yet, so where is my application lacking I can't tell..... this very frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. I think some people got admitted already, read some older posts you can see that. I don't just know how many people got admitted yet.
  12. I am a second time applicant and I can say I am beginning to lose hope though I wrote the faculty and they told me the majority of admissions and refusals will be going out in the month of July and potentially August. I strongly think is a normal scam they say every year. Anyone knows the number of spots left?!
  13. with no updates on admissions in this forum, I am assuming no new decisions have been sent out!!!!!.. I am just too restless about my decision.
  14. I am wondering if this forum is still active. Did anyone did the interview yet?? How did you find the written section
  15. Hey franky, don't think it will affect you that much since the committee focus more on the cumulative average to see how well you can handle the heavy course load in the pharmacy program.
  16. Not sure if it's possible to get that information as for now, as U of A does not share its admission statistics even after the admission round
  17. As long as you submit all the required documents on time and have all the prerequisites courses, you should get an interview.
  18. @ConfusedSoul1 thanks for the information, can go for alternative plans
  19. Hey @ConfusedSoul1, Till now my beartrack account shows that "decision pending", does it mean I have been rejected and I have to wait for my rejection letter or there is still hope somehow
  20. Have they started issuing rejection notices or does it still says "decision pending" on most applications because I know all spots are filled by now ....if I am wrong someone should correct me please!!!
  21. This is the end of the week almost June ending!!!!.... no admission updates in this forum?
