UBC Pharmacy Applications 2019/2020 - Class of 2024

Recommended Posts

Starting a new thread for UBC's Entry-to-Practice PharmD, since I don't think anyone has created one yet (Class of 2024!).

This is for those intending to start the PharmD program in September of 2020!

If anyone has any comments or questions, please post below!

I will start by saying: am I the only one surprised that the personal profile requirement was removed? When did this happen?

I also applied! I am currently in my third year at UBC :) 

When my friend who is currently in year 1 of pharmacy told me that her application had a personal profile I got worried that I did the wrong application haha. But yes I found that surprising as well.

I just paid for the supplemental application fee today but it didn't say i have to submit any documents. Is that the same for you guys?

yep, same for me! i was a little worried i did something wrong since it didn't ask for any additional documents aha

Hi every one.

Happy Holidays,

I am a UBC Pharmacy applicant and I have a question hoping some one here could help me with it.

So according to the Enter-To-Practice Pharm.D. webpage (the application timeline) as well as the email I received before, the "residency declaration forms" should have been sent out in December and are due on January 15th. However, I have not yet recived any email nor my SSC is updated regarding the declaration form. 

Has anyone received the declaration form or it is not out yet!

Thank you.

OMGOODNESS I literally wrote half a paragraph venting how I didn't receive the residency declaration form, then I looked up and realized that you also had the same problem, Pixiedust! Yes I am stressing b/c I never received the Residency Declaration form either. If we have to mail it ourselves I am worried about whether it will reach them in time. Hopefully they release it soon and it can be done online. Did you contact them? Did they say anything? I am thinking of emailing them. 

Also I am worried b/c my university isn't sending out my transcript until Jan 7th, and the deadline is Jan 15th! I hope it reaches them in time ;(

I tried to contact them through email, but apparently the admission office is closed until January 2nd. I will try to call them again when the office opens after the new year,!. 

About your transcripts, don't worry, it will probably get to the admission office on time, but I recommend you to contact the admission office and let them know of the transcript release date of your school. They are quite understanding and they might be able to extend the deadline for you if required (or at least they are aware of a possible delay which is not your fault).

You guys don't have to worry about declaration form. i sent them email inquring about declaration for and they said the declaration form will be sent out in January.

mine is 78.3% but im not sure if this is high enough to be invited for the interview....

In past years I heard if you are above a 75% combined average you have a high shot to get an interview

yeah but u kno there has been several significant changes in this year like people coming from underrepresented areas only need 70% to get an interview and 15% of the interview will be distributed to out of province student so they may require higher average for this year

Hey guys! 
Quick question....would an 85 overall average be good enough to be called for an interview? (I’m out of province btw)

Hey, looking at the average for last years incoming class you have a really high chance of getting an interview even being an out of the province student

is the people coming from underrepresented areas needing 70% for an interview a new thing this year or has it always previously been like that? (just curious!)

yes because i live in underrepresented area lol and this is third time applying for me. First time i applied i had average of 75% and i didn't receive interview, then 2nd time i received interview with average 80.5%. Then this year this underrepresented thing came up so.... this is new stuff and i think this is such a useless and unfair shit for everyone. Like i spent so much time to get good grades for first year prerequisites and now everyone around me can get interview if they have average over70%? WTF?
