"I read "Healthcare Meltdown" by Robert H. LeBow in order to prepare for pharmacy hot topics in today's society, but I wasn't even asked one question on any of that!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Read some of these posts and went over my personal inventory, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No 'real' one on one interview No specifics on financial aid Lack of current students or other faculty to answer questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Did not care to personally get to know me more than what I wrote in my essay. There was no one-on-one/group interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it seemed like they are were hiding their campus by staging the process at a hotel. 2 hours of waiting time between questionnaire & group exercise" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is a lot more work that this program needs in order to compete at the ranks of other prestigous schools. Duq has the drive to do it, but obviously needs more direction." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was surprised by the fact that I was interviewed in a conference room with the dean of the pharmacy school and 4 other pharmacy faculty members. I am a pretty confident person and perform very well during interviews, but this interview, by far, has been the only one to have me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The staff were extremely friendly and they all asked their own questions. They just wanted to make sure that I can handle the workload and that I am truly pursuing pharmacy for the right reason. Overall, though, it was an enjoyable experience. I was their very first interviewee for the very first interview day for the upcoming school year. You get to pick your interview date...pick it as early as possible because getting into pharmacy school is extremely competitive!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very pleasant experience. Not what I was expecting at all~" More from this Member | Report Response
