What was the most interesting question?

"If not pharmacy, what else would you choose?" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is no form interview. You just tell everyone your name and an interesting fact about yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I felt extremely comfortable at the school and felt like they were very honest and straight forward about the profession and the school. The in-state tuition is extremely economical, and the opportunity for residency seems easier than I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"The small class size and the family type of environment." More from this Member | Report Response

"How outgoing and laid back everyone was" More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a lot that impressed me. I was impressed by how much the dean raved about the program and that he really took the time to get to know us and explain not only Ole MIss' pharmacy program to us, but the pharmacy profession in general. I was also impressed by how cheap off-campus living would have been." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is well organized and located on the major campus in Oxford." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. Best school I have interviewed at so far :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Dr. Wilson and the staff were all great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing at all!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that I didn't know any kind of schedule UNTIL I got there." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't like the idea of having to move to jackson for the third year and then possibly moving again for the fourth year for rotations (though they did have several locations for those rotations that were nice) The interview process was way too long. 8 hours without even speaking to anyone as a formal interview. The logic test was also annoying. The students that toured the group were only P1 which wasn't enough to get to know the whole program." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wished I had known about the classes I was missing before the start of the spring semester so I wouldn't have to scramble for summer school classes. But they were helpful in giving me a list of schools offering the classes I needed online during the summer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I researched everything on their website and if I had any question or doubts, I called and spoke with Shiela or Angela ahead of time." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish they had given me more info to plan accordingly. I also wish I had known that I was missing so many prereqs ahead of time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Where to park (got a ticket)." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great school. I hope I get in here!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school and staff are wonderful! If you have an opportunity to apply and attend, you definetly should!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I absolutely love this school...If i don't get in this year i will definitely apply again next year. Do not mind moving from texas at all!!! If I had to chose between a Texas school or Ole Miss, I would take Ole Miss without a doubt! They really work with you and try to help you as much as they can." More from this Member | Report Response

"2010 is special for Ole Miss admissions; they did not get many applications, therefore if you have the minimum GPA/PCAT AND have taken all of THEIR required prereqs, you're basically in. They aren't going to have a full class this year, which would have had many advantages. I really wish I had been admitted." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt positively about the school even though the interview was extremely long. Do they really need to take pictures and measure white coats for everyone even though 75% of their applicants will be rejected? Also to talk about being professional and not cheating for an hour and a half was discouraging." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The admissions office was very quick to respond. I just wish I would have known I was missing 2 classes before the spring semester started, but they were very helpful in giving me courses offered online by schools across the nation." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was really cold in the buildings." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tell students the prereqs they are missing. I was unaware I was missing so many and this costed me my admission to the school. Also, they should give more information as to what exactly Applicant Day will entain. I am from FL, so trying to make flight/hotel accomodations were really hard to make because I never had information as to when I needed to be there and when I would be leaving."
