"It feels like the school is improving at an alarming rate, which is satisfying to know if I go there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The format of interview is pretty different from all others that i had before. It based on Scenario questions, about some ethnic issues. The interview is closed file, and the interviers did not ask you to talk more about yourself. Then, after a 45 minutes introduction, candidates get to draw their time slot for interviews, and candidates can either wait or go for a tour offered by the students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very interesting and still it was intense. You can tell they are looking for a particular answer but they still try hard for you to feel comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is a 30 minute orientation and then you draw lots for interview time. Until your time, you have to keep yourself entertained." More from this Member | Report Response

"Basically you go in and the dean shows you a presentation about the school. then you draw names for interview times so you could be there for a while depending on what time you pick. It might be a good idea to bring something to read, or you could talk to the other ppl (helps ease your nerves). then they take you up to a room w/2 interviewers...one of which is a staff of the pharmacy. I liked the fact that it was closed-file b/c i didnt feel like they were expecting anything from me." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was a good interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I had a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response
