I apologize for being so MIA lately, but I've been trying to mentally prepare myself for tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow morning is my interview with the UGA School of Pharmacy.
It's definitely a VERY important day for me, as it is the final portion of the selection process for incoming Pharm. D students. Last year they had over 680 applicants, only granted interviews to 250, and only 145 were accepted for the incoming class. So being granted an interview in itself was an absolute blessing, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to speak with the Pharmacy school admissions team.
I just get so dang nervous.
I know that based on the range of GPA and PCAT scores from last year's accepted class I'm on the lower range. I have pharmacy experience, and some excellent recommendations... so I really don't know where I'll stand with the incoming applicants. My interview will literally be what can put me over the edge for an acceptance, and even then it might not happen for me this year. Which is so hard on me. I tried not to get my hopes up.. but I'll be honest, they're up.
I've already expressed on here how much Pharmacy school means to me, and how hard I've worked to get to this point. So I'm trying to remember that I've worked hard for a reason, and it hasn't been a wasted effort.
I'm trying to quit thinking about it, because I keep playing out potential interview questions and it just makes me more stressed. I know I'm as prepared as I can be. I know I have the skills it takes. I know I have experience necessary. I just want to go in, knock their socks off.. .and make them realize that they can't IMAGINE passing me up. ;)
So keep me in your prayers tomorrow! Send good vibes my way! I need ALL the help I can get! :)
