    Hi there!

    Is anyone planning to apply for pacific university this year? Have you start working on the gathering the pieces before the cycle open yet?

    I'm applying to their early decision program but feeling very nervous :(

    I'm not applying there but another school early decision and I feel like a crazy person preparing everything before the app is even open! I'm even anxiously counting down the days and waking up early to get my transcripts sent ASAP.

    So far I have all my LORs contacted and ready to submit by 7/30, my personal essay complete, an excel sheet with all of my classes/grades to enter, and a bullet-point resume to copy/paste descriptions for my work, volunteering, professional experience, and honors. Oh and I took the PCAT in January so that's done too!

    Best of luck!

    Oh wow, you're so prepared that's amazing!
    Where are you applying for ED if you don't mind me asking? Is it an accelerated program?

    I have my LORs contacted already and submitting by August. I'm just like you counting down the day but having your classes entered in excel is a smart idea, I will do that today ☺️. I hope to finish entering everything by the end of July.
    I feel like I'm putting all my eggs in one basket because I really want to go to pacific OR so it's making me super nervous haha

    Hello!

    I applied to Pacific University Pharmacy ED program last year and got in. Trust me, it's such a good feeling to get it out of the way early and before the holidays. Just a heads up, get your transcripts in early because it sometimes takes PharmCas a while to process them. I would also spend a good few days to a week working on that personal letter. It's a big factor in getting your foot in the door along with your GPA and experiences.

    If I remember correctly, the deadline was around September 6th so you still have plenty of time. Don't be nervous! It's a surprisingly mellow interview experience.

    Hi Pheelz,
    Omg I'm so glad to hear that the ED process is worth it. This seriously gives me a piece of mind.
    I'm hoping you're enjoying Pacific U.

    Thanks for the advices, I'm looking into requesting all the transcripts and everything inputted in the first few days when the apps open. Fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly :)
