"Though the University is large as a whole, the pharmacy school seems to be rather tight-knit. Also, they provided water and snacks." More from this Member | Report Response

"You don't really need a car to get to places, because almost everything seems like it's within walking distance. However, if you're planning on attending this school, bringing a car would still be a good idea. The program is excellent because it has been polished over the last 125 years. The people are really nice and approachable. There's no other school that I've personally been to that has a medical museum that showcases the history of not only their pharmacy school, but their other health schools as well (dentistry, medicine, nursing), so make sure to go visit -- it's on the 8th floor of the on-campus hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"The one on one time (or near that) with the staff." More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendliness of the staff, the dean, and the other pharmacy students. The university and Iowa City is laid out in such a way that you don't need a vehicle to get to most main areas." More from this Member | Report Response

"great faculty, the interview process in general" More from this Member | Report Response

"We got to meet Dean Micheal Kelly and he was extremely nice and interested in us." More from this Member | Report Response

"the school has got a great program. The university life is nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"very organized " More from this Member | Report Response

"The people are all very friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were extremely friendly and pretty laid back. The dean made a huge effort to talk to everyone and was very nice. The pharmacy students involved in the process (mainly P1s) were very helpful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the assistant Deans said he wanted to talk with everyone there by the end of the day, and he did. It made you feel like they were interested in you as a person rather than just your GPA and PCAT." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, great school and campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Being rushed during the interview. They rushed me out." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of parking, but apparently that's a city-wide issue. And some of the fixtures and furniture are in need of replacement (they're functional, just out-of-date)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The writing portion took up too much time and was too long (2 essay questions), but it wasn't difficult. There was no formal presentation of some sort that introduced the candidates to the pharmacy school, although I did like the fact that the dean made a huge effort to talk to every single candidate. Facilities are a bit worn-down. Also, there's a lot of bars and pubs next to the main campus -- I don't know if drinking is your thing (and, if it is, then that's great), but it was a turn-off for me. The tuition is also pretty high, especially if you're out of state, when compared to other pharmacy programs outside of CA. Although scholarships are available, they're extremely hard to attain if you're out of state and have a GPA lower than a 3.5." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of downtime. Of the 3.5 hours, 1 to 1.5 hours of it was spent "chatting with other applicants."" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"cold weather most of the school year" More from this Member | Report Response

"They started the day right away without any general introduction to the school or the people. I also did not enjoy the interview-it was three people going through a list of set questions. They were very hard to interact with and that seemed true for most of the others as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are a little old, but the people and atmosphere more than make up for it." More from this Member | Report Response

"After you step foot off of campus, it's dead land. There's nothing there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"tour seemed to take a long time" More from this Member | Report Response

"The Dean said they really like diversity and almost made me feel like I had less of a chance of getting in because I was from Iowa." More from this Member | Report Response

"I am from iowa and was disapointed to see so many kids from other schools that had interviews...." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the college is kinda so-so, but it wasn't terrible." More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

Just put your leftovers in your car (if it's parked outside, or parked inside an open garage). Your food/drinks will be cold in just a few hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, even if I came into it without having a good idea of the interview questions it would have gone just as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"wanted more info on housing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the first year classes are with other pre-professional students, and we were told that the classroom can get very full." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it's not as stressful as everyone makes it out to be. Do your homework and you'll be fine. These people aren't out to get you. They just want to get to know you and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable while you're there." More from this Member | Report Response

"wish i saw downtown in the morning. " More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"When you're in the COP, you're considered "dependent" on FAFSA so that makes you MUCH more able to qualify for finacial aid." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing ..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I found out that Unleaded Plus is cheaper due to corn subsidies. This higher octane is very beneficial for your car." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not have my jaket on. with the exception of 3 other student and myself, everybody was dressed up. I had tie and shirt with black dress pant. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They emphasize a lot on research so if its not in your interest don't bother to apply there.." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, Iowa is a great school. I do have to add, though, that if you're gonna be staying at the Sheraton Hotel, then to get a room that's not on the 2nd or 3rd floor. I stayed on the 2nd floor, and my entire stay was uncomfortable because the pool was right next to my room and it was way too loud all day long." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very nervous for the whole event but they did everything they could alleviate that for me and everyone else. Everything seemed to be geared more toward getting to know you better than testing to see who was better." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very structured and didn't leave room for a more natural feeling conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"the school got me excited to begin pharm school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was nice, but I did not get the same sense of welcome that I got at other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, a great experience. Compared to other schools I interviewed at, this one felt the most welcoming and relaxed. The people were great, both applicants and staff. I left feeling like I was already part of their "pharmacy family". The whole process took about 3-4 hours depending on your schedule. There is an interview, essay questions, and a guided tour of the school. The order varies from applicant to applicant. There was a blizzard the day I went, so plan ahead and allow extra time for travel." More from this Member | Report Response

"3 people asking questions in turn. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was nice to talk to other applicants and to see the facilities. The writing portion was very easy and the interview was fairly stress-free. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview, but I thought it was very personal given the circumstances and very well organized. There was an essay portion, a tour, and an intervew. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Got there at like 8:10 and people were just sitting at circle tables quietly/nervously talking....was a sheet w/ my name on it that showed what times i would be interviewing, shown the place...ect, at 8:30 the dean came in, who is a really nice guy, welcomed us, and managed by the end of the day to talk to all of us. Got interviewed by a prof and P1 from iowa, very comfortable settings, then went to a comp lab and wrote responses to questions, the had a guided tour. Was out of there by 11:10" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low stress ... wrote two essay questions also ... nice staff and applicants. Good experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was great. I was worried that I did not do well. I took note of the pharmacies in the area as I drove into town. The winter season is really chilly, but the school is outstanding." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was a little nervous at first because it was my first interview for the schools that i applied to. I didn't think that I did well, but got my acceptance letter a month and a half later. I am guessing that the interview is not the main factor for admission. Writing sample was not difficult." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty intense. Right from the getgo I very anxious to the point where i could not speak for one moment. My mouth was so dry i thought i was going to chock ( Recomand you take a bottle of water). I didn't have a good interview experiance as a result the whole situation was very intimedating." More from this Member | Report Response

"I tried to ask a lot of questions about the school. It was pretty ironic that there was a basketball game going on with my school and u of iowa. " More from this Member | Report Response

"U. of Iowa was great. They ran things very smoothly, and when there was down time the associate dean and financial aid and admissions staff visited (hung-out)with us. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Good. The interviewers were friendly, the tour was nice, and they provided food!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was okay. First I went inside to check in, then they made us rotate into different groups. Interview, tour, and writing excercise. I was interviewed by three people, one P1 student, one faculty, one practicioner. They seemed formal and just kept firing questions. Make sure you make eye contact with everyone..it was hard to look at three people like that. Foods were provided, so all in all it was a positive experience. For writing excercise, we were given 30 minutes to write a two pages essay. Very easy...you don't need to prepare anything." More from this Member | Report Response
