My interviewers greeted me nicely, but my interview was basically questions thrown at me one-by-one with little interaction.

What are your general comments?

"My feeling is could be a great program. Great visit and interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"If it wasn't for the tuition, I definitely would have highly considered coming here.

"Overall impressed with the school & am seriously considering attending if accepted" More from this Member | Report Response

"For those who have a hard time thinking of a reason they like Incarnate Word, here is an answer I used during my interview. Incarnate Word has an exceptional program that consists of a couple of hard classes at once. This way I will be able to study and focus on particular parts of the cirriculum in a more efficient manner where I will not only do well in the course but apply the skills and knowledge I gain to become a great pharmacist." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone did the written part at the same time. I had a good feeling about the whole process." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the interview experience was great. I would change the waiting period for the letter of acceptance/denial for the cohort. The waiting period was the most stressful experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started off with an interview for me. One of the interviewers put me in a negative mood that basically ruined my overall experience. Next, I took a critical thinking test on computer similar to the one that Texas Tech has. Afterwards, they had us try on lab coats and scrubs and select sizes. They took pictures of us in the lab coats where they will supposedly post online for accepted students. My day ended with a standard writing session." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was way too nervous; I wish I could do it over again because I know I would do better. " More from this Member | Report Response
