USC Pharmacy School Application Requirements and Tips From an Accepted Student

I will begin with the statistics of the accepted students into the University of Southern California Doctor of Pharmacy program for 2009. 460 students were offered interviews from a pool of over 2000 applicants. 240 students are accepted (11 students from out-of-state schools), and the expected class size for 2009 is 190. One must note that USC offers their undergraduates the opportunity of guaranteed admission as long as they complete their requirements in the TAP program (these students take up a large chunk of seats available for other applicants).

Obtaining a Bachelor’s degree is now a requirement for admission at USC. The minimum GPA requirement is a 3.0 (the average GPA of accepted students is a 3.60). Since USC does not require taking the PCAT, other admission criteria is weighed more heavily (GPA, interview performance, extracurricular activities, personal statements, etc.).

For the application process, it is very important for you to note that the University of Southern California sends out interview invitations on a rolling basis, so it is important that you turn in your PharmCAS application and supplemental application as soon as possible. The deadlines for both are early November, but I highly recommend that you turn both in no latter than early August (I turned in my applications by mid-July, just 1.5 months after the application was made available).

At your interview, you will be asked questions by a current pharmacy school student as well as a faculty member. Think of it more of a conversation where you also ask questions back to both of them. When you first arrive at the interview session, you will be greeted by several current pharmacy students, who do a great job of calming you down prior to your interview. Take this opportunity to ask questions and warm up your oral communication skills. Do not worry to much about the “essay” portion as it is just a test of how well you take notes off of a random article that you read. BE SURE to follow all directions provided to you as it is also a test on how well you pay attention to details.

Here are the pre-requisites for USC’s pharmacy program:

Calculus (for science majors)

Statistics (non-business)

Physics w/lab (science/life science majors- thermodynamics & Electromagnetism recommended)

General Biology w/lab (excludes human anatomy & physiology, botany, and microbiology)

Mammalian Physiology w/lab (human preferred-excludes plant, cell and marine physiology)

Microbiology w/lab (fundamentals of microbiology for science majors)

Molecular or Cell Biology(for science majors-one upper division course)

General Chemistry w/lab (for science majors-include inorganic & qualitative analysis)

Organic Chemistry w/lab (for science majors)

Biochemistry (for science majors one upper division course)

Human Behavior (General Psychology or Introductory Sociology)

Microeconomics

For Internationals (holders of foreign US bachelor’s equivalent):

English (expository writing)

Interpersonal Communications or Public Speaking

For specific course equivalencies from your college, please check the forms available from USC’s website.

The Pharm.D. program at USC is a 4 year program. USC is a private school, and our estimated tuition and cost of living for 2009 is approximately $60,000.

The University of Southern California provides students the opportunity to pursue dual degrees in addition to their Doctor of Pharmacy Degree. These include the following:

Pharm.D./Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

Pharm.D./Juris Doctor(J.D.)

Pharm.D./Master of Public Health (M.P.H.)

Pharm.D./Master of Science in Regulatory Science (M.S. Regulatory Science)

Pharm.D./ Master of Science in Gerontology (M.S.G.)

Pharm.D./Graduate Certificate in Gerontology (Gerontology Certificate)

Pharm.D./Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

New Teacher Tips – How to Create a Dynamite Lesson

Damien Riley from Dynamite Lesson Plan offers classroom tested tips and advice on how to engage students more successfully.

Dorit: Thank you Damien for this interview. First off, I just love the name of your blog. How did you first come to name your blog?

Damien: You are welcome Dorit, it is great to share among colleagues and others interested in Education. I named my blog after something my master teacher in teacher college told me back in 1997. As many new teachers do, I was struggling with behavior problems in my class. He told me something I will never forget: “The best way to control kids is through a dynamite lesson plan.” I believe it so much, I named my teaching blog after it: “Dynamite Lesson Plan.”

Dorit: You’re a veteran teacher-what do you teach and how long have you been teaching?

Damien: Thank you for the moniker! I currently teach 4th grade public school in Southern California. I’m credentialed to teach K-6 and I’ve been teaching now for 9 years. Grades I have taught in the past include: 3,4,5,9, and I have taught college courses. So I like to think I’ve seen a variety of ages so I can offer help and share about more than just 4th grade.

Dorit: I hear also you’re a writer – what do you also like to write and how long have you been writing?

Damien: I got my Master’s in English hoping to be a writer and college professor. The college professor thing wasn’t for me, too much academia quicksand, but the writing has panned out well in one book publishing and a variety of popular posts out in the web. I book publishing came about when I answered a simple call for stories in my school newsletter. It ended up being published in a book. You can access my published and non published web writing at my online resume I call Riley Central.

Dorit: In your blog, you focus on various ways teachers can engage students. What do you feel by far is the most critical and challenging area(s) for new teachers to acquire? How do you feel about the task of engaging students?

Damien: Great question on engaging students. People are attracted to energy. When a teacher is involved and enthusiastic in what she/he is teaching, kids are drawn there. That place is where learning occurs. The way to get there as a teacher is highly up to the individual. If I see a new teacher talking about the objective assigned to her as if she is walking barefoot on broken glass, I will ask her later: “What part of that boring lesson COULD you enjoy teaching?” Usually I get some wild answers after a while. The conclusion we come to is that you have to be interested of the kids won’t buy in. New teachers should start finding the ways to be comfortable with the material, the delivery, the “tech toys” like projectors etc, and all the stuff they use to teach. As that comfort is developed, kids will want to come to class and they will learn. Kids are like sponges but if there’s no water…

Dorit: How has the internet affected teachers ability to think in more dynamic terms of engaging their learners? Your students’ writing?

Damien: I enjoy keeping a blog but that may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The internet makes it possible to instantly gather photos and information on a variety of topics each day for your kids. I try to do my planning on Thu and Fri after school. At that time I assemble all the stuff I can from the internet. It’s also a way to connect with teachers across the globe and escape “the box” of your school site or district thinking patterns.

Dorit: What’s your favorite thing about dynamic lessons?

Damien: Movement. Getting kids to move gets their blood going and gets them remembering more about the lesson. I have volunteers getting up on chairs and holding signs up, hand motions, etc. I once even modeled “sequential order” by having a student follow my instructions, which were trivial (stand up, turn, etc) and when she got to me, I gave her a dollar! They still talk about that back in September.

Least favorite?

Calling random non-volunteers. It is so necessary but I wish I could just call on the ones I know are listening. I use playing cards and number the kids so that makes it kind of fun.

Dorit: What new(er) approaches have you used recently to create dyanmic lessons that speak to students?

Damien:Explicit Direct Instruction is really my model now. A great thing. You can do a search for it on Google or on my site. I’ve written quite a bit on it.

Dorit: Do you have any advice for beginning teachers on how to create dynamic lesson plans and/or how to engage their students?

Damien: Get a teaching method or template you like and pour your passion into it. Make notecards and tape them to your desk of the stuff you know the principal is looking for and do that stuff, but focus more on what makes you excited. That is what education needs nowadays. Enough of the blah LOL.

Dorit: How do you define a dynamic lesson? Both as a classroom manager, lesson planner and teacher?

Damien: Well, everything I’ve said up to now defines it. I really like acronyms so let me use the letters of my website: DLP and answer your question:

D: The dynamic lesson has drive.

L: When you get on stage, you are not lazy!

P: You do it for the love of people, small or grown

Dorit: What do you wish you’d known about engaging students and dynamic lessons at the beginning that you know now?

Damien: If you look people in the eye and tell them you’re there to help, you are always “in.” Don’t get intimidated by your admin when they watch you. See your vision of reaching kids in your way. I used to get really freaked out when I was being observed. I think it’s always hard, but now I see it differently. Life is so short, you can have such an influence as a teacher. And if your admin doesn’t fit with your style, find the courage to keep looking for another job.

Dorit: Is there anything you’d like people to know about you that they might not?

Damien: Not really. This was a great “dialogue.” Thank you for the wonderful questions. I’d just like to thank teachers out there and to let them know I am their advocate and if they want to visit and bookmark my site, I’d love to meet and network ideas with them!

Dorit: I’m sure your information and your experience will be so helpful to new teachers out there. Thanks so much for this interview!

6 Tips to Consider Before Looking for an Assignment Help Service

We all know that it’s not a good idea to make haste, especially if you are not in an emergency situation. The same applies when you are going to invest in an assignment help service. It may not be easy for you to find a reliable service in your own town. So, you need to be calm and patient.

Not everyone can do a difficult assignment without a helping hand. This is where an assignment helping service comes to help. Given below are 6 tips that should be kept in mind before looking for help.

1. Background Research

First of all, make sure you check the background of the service provider. Without the background check, it may not be a wise idea to make the decision.

What you need to do is check the profile of the writer you are interested in. Take a closer look at their testimonials. Also, find out what their ratings are. This will give you a pretty good idea of their appropriateness for your project. Besides, this will tell you a lot about their credibility.

2. Reputation

Another important thing to consider is the reputation of the writer. If you stay tuned to what is happening in the industry, it will help you find out about companies that are reliable. Once you have narrowed down your list, it will be easier for you to opt for the right provider.

Before you place an order, make sure you consider other important factors as well, such as the number of writers, reviews, and ratings, to name a few.

3. Academic Authenticity

Of course, you will need to hire an academic writer. Other writers may not be able to work for you. Therefore, make sure you hire a writer who is qualified and experienced. Also, the writers should be available to work round the clock.

Again, checking the writer’s profile will give you all the info you need to decide whether the writer is credible and qualified.

4. Technicalities

The writer should be able to implement the right technicalities to prepare assignments related to a thesis, essays, case studies, and dissertations, to name a few. As far as technicalities are concerned, make sure the firm has strong quality control systems in place to prevent plagiarism and other issues. They should have updated tools and software.

5. Academic Subjects

If you need help with academic subjects, make sure the writing service is credible enough to cover the academic subjects. As a matter of fact, it defines the versatility of the company when it comes to the composition of assignments related to a certain subject matter.

6. Proofreading Services

Editing and proofreading go hand in hand no matter what type of writing you are engaged. You can’t get assignments that are technically accurate unless each assignment goes through the process of editing and proofreading. This is important for perfection.

Long story short, the next time you think about hiring an assignment help service, make sure you consider these 6 tips.

Tips to Studying for Your LSAT Testing

Preparing for LSAT testing is they key to being accepted into any law school. The LSAT is the Law School Admission Test. The test is a half-day standardized test that is required for admission into all ABA-approved law schools. The test allows schools to determine the reading and verbal reasoning skills that are required for law school.

The Law School Admission Council provides several resources to prospective students. Their website provides many forms and information for preparing for the test. There are several websites on the Internet that provide information on preparing for the LSAT. There are also classroom courses that are prepared specifically for the test. These classroom courses provide lectures over the material and then students are required to answer questions concerning the lectures. Students should also explore private tutoring, online courses and small group tutoring.

Many advisors say that it is better to practice for the LSAT rather than study for the test. The test consists of several sections that test your logic and reasoning skills. These skills work best from practice rather than studying. There are several websites that are available to students with practice tests. These will be essential in sections such as the analytical reasoning section.

Students will also want to develop a test-taking strategy. The exam is timed and you know what the scoring is based on. Students should answer all questions, even if they don’t know the answer it is still better to guess. Students will also want to invest in some study materials such as LSAT books and CD-ROMS. The only area that students may want to study on is vocabulary. Most of the sections on the test are based on reading comprehension and expanding your knowledge of vocabulary may help you on the test.

Practice, practice, practice. Do not take the test if you do not feel you are ready. Prepare early enough to take the test so that you will not be rushed to prepare for it or apply to law school. Students can take the test twice but schools will average the two scores rather than take the highest score. Retaking the test may not work for you in the long run if you do poorly either time.

Tips To Choose Students For Direct Entry Into Schools Of Higher Education

This is a common situation that you have to face. Every year, you have to select from a large group of 16-year olds, a few who automatically qualify to join institutions of higher education even before the final examinations.

This poses a big dilemma when these students have almost identical academic results and extra-curricular activities.

Are there other ways of trying to separate these teenage students and choose the most suitable to enter into the respective educational faculties?

Here are some tips that you should seriously consider.

Philosophical Questions

Firstly, you can create some philosophical or ethical questions to slowly see their own personal stand and bias. The coming new workplace will have a big portion of robotics and automation. Thus it is crucial to see if your candidates are not merely book-smart but am also ready to face the new realities of life.

Video Resume

You can instruct them to make a minute presentation describing their strengths and why they fit a particular faculty. This one-minute presentation can follow the style of a video resume and should have clear dialogue and accurate subtitles to allow the assessor to get a first impression.

Referees

You can also contact the referees of these candidates and find out why they want to recommend these students to direct-entry into higher education. It is up to your own experience to discover if these referees merely associate themselves with these candidates just to give blind support but may not know have enough reasons for their support

Extra-curricular Activities

You may have to create an internal system of grading your potential candidates in terms of the results of their chosen extra-curricular activities. For example, a higher grading can be assigned if the candidates have proven leadership responsibilities.

Open-ended Questions

You can give all final-round candidates some open-ended questions and ask them to provide their best replies and analysis to the given case studies. Do ensure that you allocate sufficient time for these activities.

Future Thoughts

Pose a question about where their chosen industries will be headed to in the next few years. This is crucial because you do not want a chosen candidate to switch faculties on a whim. Normally, a good candidate will make an effort to read more about the new chosen path.

Lego

The truth of the matter is this. Lego blocks are very good for any candidate to highlight what is in his mind. The Lego pieces are of different colours and sizes and are only constrained by the deep recesses of the candidate’s imagination.

Team building exercise and observation

You can also follow-up by allowing each final candidate to join a team of senior students who are already in the higher educational institutions. Break them into different groups and give them group projects to do. Remember to delegate the group presentation to be done by each candidate and then allow the other group members to evaluate them. This is very crucial because their peers are very good judges of competency and maturity.

Best of luck for your search.

Tips for Online Students: How to Ask a Question

Getting Started

When you are new to online learning there can be a lot to learn, and fast! As an online student you will be taking on some additional responsibilities for your time and your academic work. One of your greatest resources is your instructor. Asking for help or communicating with an instructor can be very intimidating, especially for a new student.

Before You Email

Many times instructors will post important information in the course announcements, the syllabus, or perhaps send out a welcome email at the start of class. Chances are that many of your questions will already be answered there. Be sure to spend some time reviewing your class and the materials right away. You will feel much more at ease with your environment.

How to Ask a Question

Instructors love to help students. We are here to help you succeed! In order to help us help you, we need you to be as specific as possible. If you simply say “I need help” or “I don’t understand” it doesn’t give us much to work with. Begin your email by stating the assignment, unit, or reading that you are working with. Then follow up with the question. Tell your instructor what you don’t understand or what outcome you are looking for.

A Poor Email:

Professor Smith,

I am so confused and I don’t understand what I am supposed to do! Help me!

Student Jones

Unless Professor Smith is a mind reader, chances are he or she doesn’t know either! What are you working on? Where are you in the classroom? What is the obstacle holding you back? In this scenario, your instructor will have to ask you follow up questions for more information, which will only delay you getting the help you need.

A better way to approach the issue:

Professor Smith,

I am having trouble with the Unit 4 discussion. Are the instructions asking for two responses to classmates, or three?

Student Jones

This is very clear and concise. Professor Smith will know how exactly how to respond, meaning you will get a clear answer right away.

Following Up

Most faculty members are quite diligent in responding to student emails right away. However, there are a myriad of reasons you may not get the speedy response you hoped for. The very first thing to do is review your syllabus, the course announcements, and if applicable your instructor’s biography. Look for information on contacting the instructor. Did you use their preferred means of communication? (Note, increasingly the preferred means of communication will be a messaging tool in the classroom and not email.) Is there a stated expectation of how long you should wait before a response?

If there is no expectation outlined in the course materials, wait 48 hours and then you may follow up with your instructor for a response. What you want to avoid here is multiple emails a day, or sending emails hours later asking if your instructor received your message. This is inefficient for both students and instructors.

Instructors as Resources

Remember, your instructor is key to your success. You never have to feel timid or apologize for asking questions. It is our role to support you and help you navigate the course successfully. We want to help you! Asking questions is a great way to enrich your learning experience.

Helpful Tips and Advice for Students

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been at university for a while or if you’re just beginning your time as a student, advice will be coming at you from all sides on what you should be doing to succeed during your further education career. A lot of it will come from people who have been in your position before but fail to remember that everyone is different – so if you hear something that doesn’t ring true for you, it’s fine to trust your instinct and shrug it off. However, there are a few basic tips that most students would do well to take note of that will definitely see you through some tricky times.

Speaking to people and asking questions

The first thing is pretty much applicable to life in general as well as university: never, ever be afraid to ask questions. This doesn’t just mean during your lectures; you would hope that your tutors are happy to provide answers to your queries, so remember that this also applies to your life outside the lecture theatres or study room. If you have issues that are affecting you, anything from your emotional welfare to feeling that you’re swamped with too much work, there are always people there who can help you out.

Getting out there and talking to people you don’t know can be a difficult prospect for many, but at least university makes it easier for you to do so. With so many societies and clubs available, social functions aplenty and your brand new course mates (all of whom will be in the same boat as you) all you need to do is throw yourself into the mix. Locking yourself in your student accommodation and hiding away from the world means that everyone else is missing out on what you can bring to the group, so get out there. In fact, you can even use your accommodation as that first stepping stone – start chatting to people in your halls or shared house and see if they fancy a quick beer or a bite to eat.

An organised student is a healthy student

Organisation is the key to being a successful student, so make sure that you’re prepared to juggle different elements of your life. You may feel that you never have enough time to do everything you want, so prioritisation is vital; set time aside to cover your academic duties as well as your burgeoning social life – and don’t neglect old friends from home or your family either! Also be aware of your budget; money is always tight as a student, but it’s perfectly possible to live well on a small amount each week.

This also links to another important bit of advice: do everything you can to keep yourself healthy. The occasional takeaway is grand, sure, but don’t become reliant on McDonalds or the Chinese across the road. Do what you can to eat healthy food regularly and you’ll be well on the way to taking proper care of yourself. Keeping an eye on the little things will help so much in guaranteeing your physical and mental health, so do whatever you can every day.

Success as a student means different things to different people – for some it’s getting a 1st, for others it’s about flying the nest and learning to be independent. Just remember that you can always ask friends, family, lecturers, student support services, or even older students who have already learnt the hard way for advice.

Tips, Strategies and Educational Resources for Parents During Social Distancing

Approximately 56.6 million students attended elementary and secondary school in the United States in 2019. With the current COVID-19 global pandemic, school districts across the nation made the tough decision to close schools and move to online classes due to public health and safety concerns. Parents and caregivers have been charged with stepping into a more active role of facilitating their child’s educational learning. Below are a few educational tips, strategies and resources for parents.

1. Ensure that student is participating in all required online activities including instructional time and any additional online chats’ participation.

2. Discuss with teachers your child’s ongoing academic progress including completion of homework assignments, projects and exam scores.

3. Parents are recommended to supplement their child’s learning with additional academic enrichment activities including educational websites, at home science projects or fun learning games.

4. Parents should make sure to create an at home learning environment to help their child focus including having a quiet place away from distractions, routine homework and study times and learning materials including a computer/laptop, textbooks, etc.

5. For students who are receiving exceptional student education (ESE) services, are under an IEP or 504 plan, should follow-up with the school counselor or school psychologist to determine if there are any required pending updates or meetings required prior to the end of the school year.

6. If your child was undergoing a psychoeducational evaluation for determination of special education services, please follow-up with school personnel for a status report and to see if the school psychologist may be conducting testing over the summer.

7. If your child was unable to start his/her evaluation prior to school closing, discuss with school staff if it is possible for your child to have a private psychoeducational evaluation completed if you are very concerned about the potential delay at the start of the next school year. Please be mindful that a private psychoeducational evaluation may be at your own expense and the school does not have to accept the results or recommendations. Additionally, if submitted to the school it becomes a part of your child’s educational record. Please take all of the above into consideration before spending hundreds of dollars for a private evaluation.

8. If you would like to pursue a private psychoeducational evaluation, consider a more affordable alternative of having the evaluation conducted at a nearby university that has a university-based clinic with graduate students who can complete the testing under the supervision of a licensed clinical psychologist or certified school psychologist.

9. Students finishing their senior year and planning to attend college in the fall, should contact their selected college/university to determine if classes will start on time as previously outlined.

10. Graduating students already admitted to college for 2020-2021, should follow-up on the status of their financial aid including any awarded grants, scholarships or G.I. bill disbursements.

Pharmcas Pharmacy Schools That Do Not Require The PCAT And The 2 Big Tips When Applying

There are many Pharmcas pharmacy schools that don’t require the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT). These schools are mainly located in the West Coast but there are three of the ten that are not even near this area.

If you suffer from test anxiety like many other pre-pharmacy students, applying to schools that does not require the PCAT may be a shrewd and smart thing to do. These schools will mainly look at your grade point average (GPA), pharmacy experience and other factors that are important to that school of pharmacy. As you know, schools that do not require the PCAT may receive more applications than schools that do require the PCAT; therefore, making competition for a seat at that pharmacy school more cut-throat.

Below are the Pharmcas pharmacy schools in the US that does not require the PCAT.

1) Albany College of Pharmacy at Union University

2) University of California at San Diego

3) University of California at San Francisco

4) Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at Boston

5) Oregon State University

6) University of the Pacific

7) Purdue University

8) University of Southern California

9) Touro University in California

10) Washington State University

There you have it, all of the Pharmcas pharmacy schools that do not require the PCAT. So if you suffer from test anxiety or you’re not a great test-taker, you should consider applying to these schools that does not require the pharmacy admissions test.

The 2 big tips in increasing your odds of getting into pharmacy schools especially a school that does not require the PCAT are:

1) Know the pharmacy profession inside and out. You should be able to articulate why you have chosen pharmacy school and the current issues relating to the pharmacy profession

2) Knowing the profession is only one part of the equation. The other part is to have pharmacy experience. Without any pharmacy experience, your chances of getting into a pharmacy school is not very good. So get the experience early and continue get them even when you are in pharmacy school.
