Hi everyone!

I may or may not have a stupid question. I took the CASPer recently, as Midwestern does require it, but I see that when you register for CASPer in Altus Suite that you also can do Snapshot (the video interview). I didn't see anything about that under the requirements, but Altus Suite made it seem like it was required. Just checking to see if anyone did it or not? Just trying to be extra thorough so I don't miss anything and make a simple mistake. TIA!

I would say do it no matter what! I did it for other schools, but I ended up using my CASPer at other schools after my deadline for snapshot had passed, so it was nice to know I had the full thing. Also, you paid for it, might as well! @tttrrrmmm

Waitlisted for an interview, I didn't even know that was a thing! Very promising though!

I was waitlisted for an interview last year. It is promising, but I never got an update last year, and I ended up reaching out to them and they told me they had concluded interviews and to try again next year. They also sent me an email saying I could apply to their pharmacy program for free, lol. Hopefully I get better luck this year!

Got an interview this morning! Also at like 12:30 am, I’m curious if it is an automated system or the director is just a night owl😂 

Congratulations! When did you apply and get verified?
