Virtual Pharmacy School Fair: Meet us in space!

This is sooo 2014, right? A Virtual Pharmacy School Fair.

We are excited to have our outreach and admissions team participating in the two-day fair this year! I'm not totally sure how it works (yet) but I've heard great things from other schools and students who found "attending" the event to be quite helpful and worthwhile.

The best part -- you can show up in your pajamas. For free. Meet us there!

Event details are available online.

Fall Preview Sessions: Register to attend now!

We've scheduled and posted our fall 2014 Preview Session schedule!

These presentations are designed to introduce prospective students/applicants to UCSF's PharmD program. Although I'm pretty biased, I think this is an excellent event. While we are careful not to provide information that is not readily available on our website, attending a preview session can provide prospective students with a chance to hear from current students (via a panel discussion) as well as take a tour of the Parnassus campus. Preview sessions include:
  • Overview of UCSF's PharmD curriculum
  • Admissions process and timeline
  • Current student panel
  • Parnassus campus tour
While there is no fee to attend, registration is required.

Please visit our website for more information and registration instructions.

2014 Application Presentations Scheduled!

We get it. We get it. UCSF's Supplemental Application can be challenging. But it's only challenging if you aren't willing to put forth three things: time, effort and thought.

We started offering Supplemental Application Presentations many years ago as a way to "walk you through the supplemental application." Do we give away secrets? There are no secrets to give away. Can you be a successful applicant without attending a presentation? Absolutely. Do you help applicants develop their essay responses? No, no, no.  But attending a presentation can sometimes provide the motivation for applicants to get started on the application.  (Don't tell anyone this... but it also gets us in the mind-frame to gear up for the next admissions cycle.)

We are offering seven presentations this year:

It's possible that we will be adding additional presentations (Southern California? Webinars?) If so, we will announce those on our website and here on this blog. 

Visit our webpage for more information about attending a Supplemental Application Presentation.

In the meantime, I trust that you have already started working on that application!
