"The location...not very nice. I've visited Savannah before, but I stayed on the island-which is nicer than downtown." More from this Member | Report Response

"Savannah is a dump (historic district aside)- very poor and broken down area. So are the people. It is sad. Realtors repeatedly told me, "Savannah is dangerous- you have to live on the islands to be safe." Those islands mean a 25-30 minute drive each way to campus. It was disconcerting that they had nothing substantive to say about their program except that it is an accelerated program. Heard almost nothing about the academic aspect of this place- why they do things the way they do, or what sort of successes they've had. It just seemed like a sales pitch, to me."

What are your general comments?

"The type of student they are looking for is emotionally intelligent, humble and hard working with character." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly the interview day really turned me away from South U." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, everyone will have 2 different interviewers. One that I had was racist, and started stereotyping me just because I wasn't citizen. This made me mad and left in frustration after completing my essay. Essay is about professionalism. I wrote like 3 sentences and left. And I still got in. I think this school takes anyone (no matter how bad you do on interview or essay), if you have 3.0 gpa and 70 and above on pcat. I am glad I don't have to go there!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Seems like a nice environment and all the students I spoke with liked the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Averall, it is a Good school. It is 3 year school. Moreover, they told me that they are going to start a join degree program soon." More from this Member | Report Response

"There will be an essay on the topic of professionalism." More from this Member | Report Response

"Be yourself at the interview. They just want to know you better. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Savannah is not a place you want to live. A commute to and from will consume an hour of your study time each day unless you live in or near the hood." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus consists of three buildings, the pharmacy school being one of them. The campus is really pretty though. The have up to date technology. Offer grad-school housing and pair you up with others in the pharmacy program. They have a dress code for their pharmacy students- business casual to class everyday. No food or drink in the classrooms. Be prepared to write a one-page essay upon arriving at the interview. Nothing difficult, just more of an opinionated paper." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty and students are very friendly. Because the school is small, there is a feeling of close-knit family. My interviewers were not intimidating, but I heard others were more thorough." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing is difficult. It might be because I already had so many a few interviews before this one. There is one essay asking to write about your reason for choosing South University." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was really nice. It was my first interview ever. I was really nervous at first, but the interviewers were laid back, so I eventually felt more comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a great interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I have done four interviews and this was the best experience by far. It seemed like the interviewers had spent some time with my file before the interview and were really interested in things I had done. The questions were thorough and forced me to think, but the interview had a conversational tone and was not very stressful. The student guide was open and had good things to say about the school that he could substantiate." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great people at South University! Made you feel relaxed, did not put you on the spot. Just make sure you can explain why you chose this school (besides the fact that it is a 3-year accelerated program)." More from this Member | Report Response

"We arrived, we handed a packet of South U. info, then the associate dean of admissions did her intro. Then we were split into groups, one went to interviews, one went on tour, and one met with admissions to address any missing things in application/file. The student tour guides didn't seem too enthusiastic about the school, and ran out of stuff to say after about 10 minutes. Overall, it was a good first interview experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"orientation first. then walked us up to a room where we were divided into three groups. each group did either interviews with faculty, toured, or sat and chilled. pretty laid back overall, everyone was super nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was relaxed, there are two one-on-one conversations with faculty. The campus tour was about 20 minutes long- there really is not too much to see. My second interviewer only asked me a couple questions and then asked if I had question of him. It seemed like I was interviewing him instead." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, very easy and laid back. I worried a lot, for this was my first interview. But everything went smooth, and everybody was there to offer their assistance." More from this Member | Report Response

"It went well, everyone was very friendly especially the 3rd year students that gave the tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a very positive experience for my first interview. The staff and students made you feel right at home. Savannah, GA is just a great city too!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was very nice. The staff was quite friendly. The building was nice and new. Excellent labs. Interviews were very laid back. There was an informative Q&A session before the interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Prepare to write an essay regarding why south university? " More from this Member | Report Response

"For the most part it was a great experience. Everyone was very nice at the interview. They don't try to intimidate you, they want you to feel comfortable being there. If you like a small close knit class, then this is the school for you. Everybody knows everybody.(Also they let you know less than a week after whether you got in or not)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved the school, students, professors, location. I felt like I belonged." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview went well. You have two twenty-thirty minute interviews with two faculty members, and with each, I felt at ease. The time flew by because it felt like a natural conversation rather than an interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pleasent, nice staff,competetent faculty, all arround very relaxed atmosphere. Esssay was not timed, and topic was simple and straightforward." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was fine, really laid back, but I really just didn't like the school's lack of University style." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were both very young and excited about the new school and where it was going. They both made me feel very comfortable and made me enjoy the whole experience. I left feeling very confident about my chances at the school and hope that I get in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Started off with an orientation with drinks and snacks, then the group was split into two groups. The first group began there interviews and the second group took a tour and wrote an essay. I finished everything around 11:40. The interviewers were very nice, I felt like they really wanted to be there, they didn't act like it was a burden for them to sit there and listen to some dumb kid talk for twenty minutes. The interviews were not really rapid fire questions really relaxed setting in the interviewers office just mainly talking about various things." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience! I was comfortable as soon as I walked in and sat down. We had an orientation for about an hour and learned about financial aid and walked through South University's bulletin. Then split up into groups and either went to interviews or toured the school. There were snacks in the room and sodas. They really made me feel comfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A good experience. There was 2 professors that talked to you, each for 30 minutes. They also allowed time for me to ask all questions that I wanted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. Had to write a essay about our experience there. People, relax, they really make you feel comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was really good experience at south unviersity. Interviewers were really nice and encouraging." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a financial aid presentation, then a school overview presentation in a classroom with the whole group. Then you either had a tour or had your interviews. Interviews were with 2 profs open-file 30 min each. They really didn't ask too many questions of me...most of the time was spent with me asking them questions. Then there was a writing sample about your interview experience at South. Then done." More from this Member | Report Response

"RATHER LAID BACK, PRETTY INFORMAL, ONE ON ONE." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great interview experience overall. I have to admit, my opinion was changed a little bit when our tour guides were skipping class to give tours. I do not think that is right since students SHOULD BE in class during class time. I also felt that the short overweight tour guide (Jeremy?) was feeding us lines of BS by his mannerisms of being the preceived big man on campus and how grades can magically change if complain enough. I think he maybe a little confused. Other than that, I loved my interview experience. I hope to attend this fall! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back. I really liked this school. This was not my top pick, but now it is. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a very good experience. As I said I had one interviewer who was great at putting me at ease and just wanted to get to know me and I had one who just wanted to question me and kept the anxiety level high." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very laid back. The faculty just wants to get to know you better. They don't pressure you or ask tricky questions (at least mine didn't). Just be yourself and it will go well." More from this Member | Report Response
