Instead, we got there at 7:45am and didn't start doing anything until 8:30am. The interview lasted 1 hour. We waited for the other group to do their interview for 1 hour (down time). Then, we went to hear financial aid info and campus tour (information that is irrelevant unless you're actually accepted). My friend was in a different group of interview. She got interviewers who were really mean and anal. They never smiled. When it was time to ask questions, they were still mean and rude. However, my interviewers were very nice. Therefore, I can't say the same thing for my own experience, but I was surprised at how mean they were to my friend and her entire group." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was quite a bit of time where we just ended up sitting around. The other applicants were really friendly and fun to talk to, but just as I had read in other posts it seemed like there was a ridiculous amount of down time for having only 7 applicants at the interview day. If you don't value my time as a potential student what does that tell you about how it will be once I am a student there? Maybe that's a little harsh, but I wasn't terribly impressed with the day's set-up." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought a group interview of 3 interviewers (2 faculty, 1 student) on 3 interviewees would make it difficult but it was actually nicer that way. Gives you time to think in between as it's not a situation where you need to compete or interrupt others to get a word in. Instead, they will ask a question, and go around until everyone has had a chance to answer it, then start over with a new question. You're not rushed, and you get to hear how others answered and time to relax and think. " More from this Member | Report Response

This school is a WICHE PSEP participating school. From what I could tell the interview questions give completely vary from group to group. Some groups got situational questions like "if X happened what would you do?" while others got the types that are reflected on this forum.

They start in early June and go year-round, graduating in 3 years! 10 week quarters, 18 units/qtr, and about 2 exams every week and ending with a finals week. The instructors seem to really care that you do well and it shows in their high NAPLEX scores and low attrition rate of 1%. They want everyone to do well. It seems like a great school to prepare you for pharmacy. Good luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone's comments have been right on the dot. We are supposed to be there by 7:45am but things do not start until 8:30. Luckily, my group was the first to interview, while other groups either went on a tour or waited around for an hour. Whichever group you were in, it was guaranteed you had at least one whole hour to sit and chit chat or wait anxiously. The tour was nice, we even got to see the clinic on the other side of the street. The pharmacy department in that clinic, however, seemed quite small. The cafeteria is only open for lunch. So those who live on campus would still have to take care of breakfast and dinner. That would be a troublesome burden for someone like me who does not cook. Though there were some gaps in between, they wrapped things up early and we were done by 2pm instead of 2:30. I interviewed on Friday and by Wednesday of the following week found out I was accepted. I guess it is because mine was the last interview date." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were down right hostile. This is my third interview and I walked out of there feeling angry and frustrated. I can handle stoic faces but I can't handle it when they were giving dirty looks like that. You'd think that I just killed their beloved dog or something. My two interviewers were part of the faculty and if this is the way that they treat potential students, then I don't want to even know what it'll be like to ask them for help for one of their classes. Other than that, be prepared to be ignored. They separated everyone into 4 groups: 3 panels. Groups 1 and 2 interview first and groups 3 and 4 goes on a tour and financial aid discussion. This would have been great if groups 1 and 2 could go at the same time but we didn't. Group 1 goes first (8:30am) and group 2 goes at (9:30am). So whoever was in that group arrived there at 7:45 am and sat in the waiting room for 2 hours until they did anything. This experience was so disappointing, it completely turned me off about the school. They need to take notes from their Chicago school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was good, I think the interview are better as a three on one style interview simply because it is hard to completly showcase yourself in the limited time given. They could quite easily shorten the day or add another lecture or two to the agenda so you aren't sitting around as much." More from this Member | Report Response

"MWU basically gets out-competed by the University of Arizona, Tucson for rotation sites... (Their assistant-dean told us that they routinely send students to nevada/utah, and that in some instances there was no pharmacist-preceptor at that site! Scary!!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The 3 on 3 interview style wasn't as bad as I feared. It was actually nice to not have the pressure on me the whole time.

"I thought the interview experience was terrible. Very impersonal. When you are with three other candidates for a ~40 minute interview you really don't have that much time to let the interviewers know who you are. I would much prefer a one-on-one set up or even have three interviewers asking me questions by myself rather than have 3 applicants interview at once, but that's just me. It really changes the feel of the interview having other applicants in there with you." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day ran from 7:45 am until 2:30 pm, so be prepared for a pretty long day. In the morning while we waited to find out our schedules for the day (they split us into 4 groups), we had a chance to speak with 3 current pharmacy students. My group had the tour first, the group interview, and then the financial presentation. Lunch was around noon and the twelve of us ate lunch with the same 3 pharmacy students we had a chance to speak to earlier. It was great hearing first-hand from the students themselves. Ask lots of questions-- this is your time to find out what you want to know!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the anxiety level dies down as the day progresses. The staff/ personnel were very nice and friendly. The interview itself was a group format: 3 applicants and 3 professors. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school but not sure if the 3 year program is for me. Nice to see the school though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Neutral-to-negative. There is no excuse for that amount of downtime. We should have been shown the inside of a classroom and/or lab. We were allowed to peek through a tiny window into a classroom." More from this Member | Report Response

"Went very well, nice campus, " More from this Member | Report Response

"very laid back, more of a conversation than an interrogation" More from this Member | Report Response

"They provide a continental breakfast, and $8 (more than enough!) for lunch, so you won't go hungry. The interview itself was a little stressful because it was 3 on 1 (two professors and a student). And they write, so it kind of makes you wonder what it is they want to remember. There was a very long awkward silence after I finished answering every question, and I thought it might just kill me... But I got in, so I guess it went well. Also, I felt that one of my interviewers REALLY didn't like me because he sat there with his arms folded the whole time, but one of the students told me later that he's actually really funny. So I guess I would say, don't judge a book by its cover. They give you a list of all of the interviewers and a mini-biography to read, so I would look that over and ask them questions about what they do at the end of the interview."

"I like the fact that Midwestern focuses exclusively on educating health care professionals (pharmacy, OT, PT, Nurse Anestatist, etc.) The program is very well organized. I am very impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Like all other postings, there is a lot of down time. Fortunately our group was sociable and the time went quicker than I imagined. Interview went well...remember to smile and breathe. You are interviewing the faculty just as much as they are interviewing them, make sure you get your questions answered and have fun! (Looks like I will be attending in the fall :) )" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview itself was only 30 mins but we had to wait around forever. There was also a tour scheduled during the wait time. They provided lunch after the interviews and then there was a message from the dean as well as a financial aid talk. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview went well, and everybody was very nice. It starts early in the morning and lasts into the afternoon. Plenty of free time. The tour was not impressive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"don't try to be too funny during the interview. Be relaxed, at the same time be conservative. This state is full of conservative people and they like you if you are conservative." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was good. A little long, but information given was helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"there were 17 of us. we met in the office of admissions. we got a folder with our schedule for the day and background information on our interviewers. then they broke us up into 2 groups. my group toured the school first. our tour guide was a second year student who was really nice and enthusiastic. then we met back at the office and i was called for my interview. 3 professors interviewed me. they said it wasn't an interrogation, but merely a conversation to get to know me. i still felt like i was being interrogated though. when that was over i breathed a sigh of relief and worked on a survey they gave me to fill out. then we had lunch. then we met with the assistant dean and she spoke to us about the school. that was followed by a meeting about financial aid. then we turned in our surveys back at the office and the day was done!"

"the morning was normal.. they split you up into 2 groups.. the lunch was good as they gave you a generous voucher. the apartments were interesting.. the on campus apts were very dorm looking whereas the off campus ones were really nice. the people were nice and freindly and the weather was pretty hot but i like that sort of thing. you are in the middle of no where, but hey tht should give u reason to study. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I like the location of Midwestern; I like that it is small and TEACHING focused (although, research is fun too). Everyone was laid back and friendly. I played ping-pong in the cafeteria during lunch. So overall, it was a great day :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"we were separated in 2 groups. As one group was interviewed, the other went for a campus tour. Breakfast was provided ( which was really good), and so was lunch, but I wasn't fond of the food in the cafeteria. After lunch, a financial aid presentation was given and although I was bored in the beginning, I was awakened by shock when I looked at the figure in the tuition fee. So was everyone else in the room. =) Anyway, it was a great experience and I am definitely going there in 2007. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The entire day was a good experience. The interview process was well organized.. breakfast, lunch and snacks were plentiful.. I don't think anyone went hungry the entire day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewees are broken up into two groups. One group tours the campus while the other is interviewed. Then the groups switch. After all of the interviews are complete, the entire group is given a cafeteria allowance for lunch. After lunch, the Associate Dean gives a presentation outlining the mission of Midwestern CPG. Then there is a 45 minute financial aid presentation. Lastly, you fill out the exit survey. Be prepared for a 7.5 hour day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very stressful" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very relaxed. The interviewers put me at ease and I felt like I was having a conversation rather than a Q&A drill session. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviewing student was so pretending and he was acting as if he were was the decision maker ....and he was about to tell me that he was born to be a pharmacist...." More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at the interivew at 8:00 am and I felt like I was late because everyone was there. We split into 2 groups and one group went to a school tour and another group started the interviews. The student was very helpful and gave us lots of hints about the interviewers and the questions to expect. Expect to have a lot of down time. After the tour, which only lasted 20 minutes, you have about 1-1&1/2 hour to wait either for the interview or for other people to interview. During that time you have to fill out a exit survey, which also serves as your writing sample. There are 3 groups of interviewers and each person gets 30 minutes, no more no less. After the interviews ended at 12 or so, the school hosted lunch followed by intro from the associate dean and a financial aid session. The day ended at 2:15 or so. It was realtively low stress, although I stress easy. Don't be afraid to stand out, they are looking for that. I would advise against wearing a black suit because some faculty said are we at a funeral? By the way, I was accepted and am going there in the fall of 2006." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got there at about 7:45 and almost everyone was already there. They had a continental breakfast set up. Half of us went on a tour while the other half started their interviews, then we switched. Expect to sit around for 1 1/2-2 hours waiting for your interview. We were fed lunch, then the associate dean and financial aid gave presentations. We were done at about 2:15. The "writing sample" was actually an exit survey that we completed while we were sitting around." More from this Member | Report Response

"My day began at 8, ended at 2:30. there were only 10 students in my group that day. The admission staffs said that since people don't want to come in for interview right after holidays, that's why there were only 10 of us..Usually, there will be 20-25/group. We started of with interview. There were 2 panel and 3 interviewers in each panel. After interview, everyone went for campus visit, then luch and the Dean came and welcome us. My day was ended with financial aide. The interviewers I had, they were very nice, made me feel comfortable!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day began at 8 am, and each candidate was given a folder with information about faculty members, agenda, and information about Phoenix. Interviews were scheduled throughout the day from 8:30 to 11:30. There were three panels, and each panel consisted of a wide spectrum of professionals. One panel consisted of two faculty members and a preceptor. Another consisted of three professors. The final consisted of one professor, one preceptor, and a pharmacy student. From the information I gathered, the interviewing style varied significantly from panel to panel. One panel concentrated on questions found on this website. Another asked experiential questions like "tell me about a time" type questions. Some had difficult interviews and others had a wonderful experience. It really depends on who interviews you. A lot of people seemed nervous the entire time, and some just did not know what to expect. There was a lot of uncertainty in how people stood after the interview. After the interview we were treated to lunch by the university. Then the Dean gave a presentation on the school. The day ended with financial aid presentation. Expect to get out by 2:30. Expect to find out in 4 weeks." More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, it was a good experience.. And guys, whatever you say, never say you want to do RETAIL !!! My friend told me abt this before my interview and it soo true.. RETAIL is a taboo word; if u say retail, then they will think u are just in it for the money and that you dont care abt anything else.. And also, make sure ask them at least 2 good questions at the end... either abt their program or abt the school... make sure its good.. dont ask them stupid stuff like how much the tuition is how the weather is like !!! u are supposed to kno all that by this point.. Good luckkkkkkk" More from this Member | Report Response

"During the interview, I did not feel like the interviewers were very welcoming. They came off as harsh and not all that easy to get along with. The one cool thing about MWU is that it is a 3 year program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well worth the trip, would have been even better if they muzzuled the admissions lady." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was well-worth it the travel expense. It is a beautiful campus and Glendale is a nice town." More from this Member | Report Response

"i was nervous beforehand because i didn't know what to expect, but the interviewers really made me feel at ease. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, besides the pre-reqs possibly not fulfilling the requirements, the interview was a great experience. The faculty were very friendly and non-hostile during the interview. It seemed more like a conversation with some of your parent's friends rather than people that are pretty much deciding the future of your career in pharmacy." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience, if accepted it will definitely be hard to say no." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole day was very easy going. They work hard to make you feel at ease. " More from this Member | Report Response

"We were offered breakfast in the morning. After breakfast, we watched a presentation dealing with tuition and financial aid. Interviews followed and we had two professors that teaches in the pharmacy program as the interviewers. They took the first 20 minutes to ask questions to get to know you better and observe your interacting skills and the last 10 minutes for you to ask them any questions you have. Lunch was served after everybody finished their interviews. All in all, I had a great experience here. I expected the interview to be a lot worse than it ended up being, but this really helped me because I came very prepared. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seems like its purpose is to help you succeed. Everybody learns your name and creates an extended family atmosphere." More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at 8AM. There were 16 interviewees that day, including myself. We were given name tags and a folder including an interview agenda, faculty profiles, sample student schedules, and a list of things to do in Phoenix. We socialized as we ate a continental breakfast. I had a blueberry muffin and applejuice. The group was split into morning and afternoon interviews. While one group was interviewing, the other was taking a tour of the campus. The actual interview was 30 min, with a panel of two professors and a student. Be sure to look at everyone when you answer questions. After the last interview, we all ate lunch together, then the Dean asked us if we had any more questions. We were told what the next step would be and when to expect letters. We were dismissed at 1:15 PM. Whatever you do, don't wear black! The admissions counselor made a comment like "To those of you wearing black, I'm sorry, this is not your funeral. This is a happy day." " More from this Member | Report Response
