After the interview
After the interviews, the Admission Score for each applicant is calculated as follows:
The Academic Score represents 65% of the Admission Score
The Interview Score represents 35% of the Admission Score
The Admission Score for each interviewed applicant is calculated based on the above formula and then students are ranked from highest to lowest.
The top 40 are offered admission with a minimum of 75% of the seats being offered to applicants that are bona fide residents of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Offers of admission are usually made by mid-June.
Below is a chart that offers some guidance on what happens next - depending on whether you've been offered admission or not.
||NOT OFFERED ADMISSION
- Applicants have 10 days from the date of the offer of admission to either accept or decline.
- Applicants accepting the offer must also submit a $100 deposit (cheque or money order payable to MUN School of Pharmacy or by credit card - Visa or Mastercard). This deposit is non-refundable and will be credited towards tuition fees.
- If the offer is accepted candidates's will receive a "Welcome Package" which includes information about regsitration, timetables, orientation, etc.
- Several applicants are placed on the wait list in case a seat is vacated. If you are waitlisted, you will be notified.
- Generally, the whole admission process is completed by early July. Once all seats are filled, those on the waitlist will be notifed and encouraged to re-apply.
- If you are interested in re-applying, it is recommended that you take courses that meet the requirements of not only a pharmacy degree but another degree as well so you have a couple of academic options.
- If you want to re-apply, make sure to keep your marks up.
- Applications for admission for the following September will be available in mid to late fall.
- However, if you're a MUN student thinking of changing your degree program or are unsure of what to do next, below are two contacts you should use to help develop a plan:
