"how organized the day was, how structured the presentations were, how enthusiastic staff, professors and students are, that we were broken into groups and directed to different talks, how we were given plenty of chances to ask questions and how eagerly they wanted to respond with questions, how much they emphasized being well rounded and not just a pharmacist , how we got to see a student panel and ask real questions in a small setting, how the technology division is strongly supported at the program, that it is a well established program with a lot of faculty simply geared just for the pharmacy school, they actually schedule courses/structure to allow students the time to work/intern, there is a job fair to help people get off during 4th year, you do get input from faculty about rotation sites" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"1. They just throw in a mention of MTM as though it is not one of the most important aspects of pharmacy. 2. They have no specific programing for interprofessional relationships with doctors, nurses, and dentists. 3. They mention access to the hospital, but don't actually say how much access students have. 4. The curriculum has holes in the day for studying that are not long enough for me to be able to study, but thats just me. 5. The new curriculum has been in practice for 2 years, but students still seem kind of unsure about it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was too long... nearly 5 hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"Omaha isn't the best location. There are areas surrounding the campus that are run-down and shady, so make sure to avoid those areas. The public transportation system isn't too great, and so you'll definitely need to bring a car if you're planning on attending this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of the meetings would apply only if you were admitted." More from this Member | Report Response

"how long the whole day was and that the interview was much later into the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Omaha isn't the best location." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The room I got interviewed in was a tiny cubicle like office with no windows. While everyone was telling me to not be nervous and just be relaxed, the setting didn't really suggest that. I still did well in my interview, it was just my nerves were a little high." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area seems really segregated and not very diverse" More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't really tour the pharmacy school, just toured campus in general" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much." More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolultely nothing.....It was EXTREMELY cold when I arrived in Omaha the night before my interview. The wind chill was right at or just below zero. I had just left 80-degree weather earlier that day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"I've only lived in big cities, so Omaha seemed a little quaint. But, you'll be studying most of the time...the small city factor may be good for school. =)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at all" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very uncomfortable interview chair." More from this Member | Report Response

"Walking up and down the steps with uncomfortable shoes" More from this Member | Report Response

"The man that interviewed me wasn't even on the committee to decide who they accept into the program and it was a phone interview, so I'm not exactly sure how good that is for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing - his description of the program impressed me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pessimistic view of the interviewer" More from this Member | Report Response

"the location of the campus relative to surroundings (ie. restaurants, bars, supermarket, etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had some coffee. There were a lot of information sessions and they were (kind of) repetitive. The interview was the last part of the day and they didn't give you your interview info until an hour before the actual interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviewer would be so disinterested in what I had to say after he found out I had little pharmacy experience. He didn't care what I said after that." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I would have known to bring some food with me because there is no lunch break." More from this Member | Report Response

"You will literally be there all day." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day is long and may even seem a bit tedious. It would be a good idea to bring something to munch on during the day, although they do give you snacks and water at some point." More from this Member | Report Response

"That tests are taken with computers, in the classrooms. But they did say that they will have backup computers present as well as a tech person in case a computer crashes." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was so much construction around the campus. I would recommend any one not familiar with the area to do a drive by of campus before the day of your interview to find your way to the parking lots." More from this Member | Report Response

"how there would be absolutely no food (they do give snacks and water) but no lunch time and lots of walking and talking. how really laid back it was throughout the day. That even though 5 hours does not sound like a lot, it is." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I shouldn't be so nervous because it was really laid back. Also for girls, don't bring a big purse because you will have to carry it around the whole afternoon." More from this Member | Report Response

"How many bathroom breaks there were. I didn't eat or drink much in the morning so that I wouldn't need a break. But there were 3 or 4 times when I was standing alone in the hall because everyone in my group was in the restroom." More from this Member | Report Response

"You should eat before coming. Also, bring a coat for the tour...it was cold over there." More from this Member | Report Response

"How everyone at CU wants their students to succeed. I wouldnt have applied anywhere else and saved some $" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing - when they invite you to interview, they give you a link to interview guidelines and other information. I felt well prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"Snow!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The web-based pathway is not accredited yet. I knew that new schools can not become accredited until they graduate their first class (which is this year for Creighton's web-based pathway), but I thought that it was already accredited because the campus based program has been accredited for many years." More from this Member | Report Response

"What types of questions to be prepared? " More from this Member | Report Response

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"you will obviously be nervous but everyone there tries so much to make you feel comfortable. Just be yourself and enjoy the day because you really have nothing to worry about. Once you are invited to an interview, you have a pretty good chance of getting in." More from this Member | Report Response

"I chose Creighton because I was highly impressed by the faculty and staff's goal to provide a quality education for their students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school isn't the best, but that shouldn't deter you from attending this school because it has such an excellent program. Everyone is so polite and welcoming, and I knew that Creighton was my school toward the end of the interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"I liked the school, but I do not know how I feel about the area- it was not around much- just houses and it seemed like all of the restaurants and malls were farther away." More from this Member | Report Response

"The people were interested in us and kind. The facility is new and the technology is top notch. Omaha is a midwestern town with a strong sense of its self. Overall I was very impressed with this program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Here is a general break down: You mingle in the atrium a bit with fellow interviewees. You are checked in with a packet complete with your itinerary for the day. You are given a presentation by several professors/staff on the school. You do take photos of yourself for the school. There is a tour of certain parts of the school like the class where you will take most of your lectures. There are interviews that are supposedly closed file. You are given a presentation on the interprofessional/spiritual component to the school. You are also given presentations on technology and the extracurricular/service activities offered by the school. You are also given a chance to sit in a room with a panel of pharmacy students and ask questions without the presence of faculty present. Tip, it is a long day. Be prepared to walk a lot, talk a lot, and bring something that you can eat and snack on throughout the day. We did not go outside, but bring a coat for the weather in case the weather is better for your visit and you walk outside. You don't need to bring anything in terms of paper, because they give that packet and a mini bag to you. Bring a pen to write, food, maybe even coffee and some questions to ask the students. Really unique school and will support students in transition to pharmacy school. I loved the fact that they do their best to make sure you understand all aspects of Creighton pharmacy, because you are spending 4 years there. They do treat you better and with more care than other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Both of my interviewers were faculty members. Some other interviewees were interviewed by a faculty member and a current student. I would be sure to keep the interview going. Don't go completely off track, but keep conversation flowing, try to relate questions/your comments back to each other, smile a lot, keep eye contact, use your hands a bit. Just relax! My interviewers and I kept talking 10 minutes past when we were supposed to finish. Shake hands before and after the interview...remember the basics. Have a few questions to ask them at the end."

"I flew in that morning and was able to get to the school in time for the afternoon interview. We all met in the atrium of the science building (Hixson-Lied I think) where the faculty and students socialized for about half an hour. They would introduce themselves and roam around the crowd. After that we were given free bags and our itinerary for the day. We all met in a conference room upstairs and the students were split up according to whatever was written on our itinerary. Some went to technology presentations, some met with a student panel, and some interviewed. Then we would rotate. That is about it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"overall, it was ok. I just hated how the interviewer kept rocking back and fourth in his chair!! and did not ask me enought Qs..I would have been done in 5minutes if i didn't ask questions. seriously if i don't currently go to creighton and know that ppl here are nice.. the interviewer would made me not go there" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was extremely pleasant. Obviously I was nervous considering that I had never been to Omaha or Creighton. The staff did everything conceivable to make us feel relaxed. They really treated me like a pharmacist in training....very professional and organized. THE BOTTOM LINE IS I GOT ACCEPTED!!! I got accepted into a few schools, but Creighton was, by far, the most professional during the interview process, not to mention the fact that their pharmacy program has been around over 100 yrs. and is attached to a major medical facility along with several other health professional schools...medicine, dentistry, nursing... " More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the interview set up was great. I got there early and had around 25mins to mingle with profs and students before everything started. This let me be comfortable when I interviewed. After everyone checked in we had a presentation that was interesting and then the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day follows the schedule you are given. Everybody was exceptionally friendly and helpful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started out with all the students milling around the large atrium area, where admissions staff and current students were available for questions. We then had an information session about the school, the profession in general, and financial aid. Then I went on a tour that was somewhat limited due to the weather but was otherwise interesting. I then had an interview with two faculty and a 4th year student on rotation. The entire experience was about 4 hours long." More from this Member | Report Response

"He said they have a list of questions that they can choose from. Then he asked me about five of six questions. All of them were ones that other people had listed on this site. He was really nice and then he asked if I had any questions. His questions only took about 10 minutes for me to answer then the last 15 minutes was him answering my quesitons."

"Very positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed with Amy Wilson, a faculty members. I was very nervous but Amy was very pleasant and was not intimidating. Though I felt I could have done better, it was a learning experience.
