"Interviewers were stand offish. Questions were not inviting." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not really much of anything. It was pretty much a positive visit, but if I had to say one thing that was negative it was paying $6 to park my car in one of the hospital parking garages and having to walk 0.25 mile to the pharmacy building in a suit." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Some wait time and tour not that necessary" More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

"That it wouldn't be as stressful and trying as I originally presumed! And that the tour is just inside the two buildings." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would be two interviewers in one 30 min session." More from this Member | Report Response

"That is was going to rain, I would have brought an umbrella." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the parking was not $6 like the letter said... it is $1.50 an hour and the interview lasts 3 hours (plus 15 minutes walking between the deck and school each way) so I ended up paying $7.50 just to park (I did arrive fairly early).

"They provide drinks and cookies and it was not as stressful as I thought it would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is construction going on all throughout campus!" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"I shouldn't have been quite so nervous. It was my frist interview (they start so early!), so I wasn't sure what to expect. I hope my others go as smoothly!" More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There were 15- 16 interviewees that were divided into 3 groups with different order of same activities. Everyone was extremely nice and polite." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the school is beautiful and its a great program and the students raved about the faculty but I was unimpressed with the faculty as a whole.

"Excellent school. Very friendly students, staff and people in general. I was very impressed by the honesty and friendliness of NC people in general." More from this Member | Report Response

"My experience was very frustrating. I ran into some bizzare challenges where in any other world it would have gone smoothly. For example, getting a cab driver to and from the airport was insanely hard. Also, I wish I had known the lack of ties the college of pharmacy has to the UNC hospital & research triangle. The impression I got was that it doesn't really give you any advantage except for proximity. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The two faculty members that I interviewed with were very receptive to what I was saying and asked engaging questions of me based on my answers to the pre-set interview questions that they had on the piece of paper in front of them. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a non-stressful and interesting interview. I came away from it more impressed with the program than I expected. Received an admissions offer ~3 weeks after the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview process was very laidback. The interviewers were merely trying to get to know your personality. The process was largely conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrived at the pharmacy building and received a folder and name tag in the forer, then was led to a lecture room with the rest of the applicants. We were introduced to 5 PY2's and were allowed to ask them any question about the program except admissions related things. They were very knowledgeable about things and were very candide about how things were for them." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxed!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive experience and very well organized and interview somewhat relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had an outstanding experience at UNC. Faculty, staff and students were very welcoming, and I felt as if they were truly interested in each and every prospective student. I felt my trip was worthwhile." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed my stay there, but being that I believe this was the last interview, we were not given a tour and we were kind of rushed. Otherwise, I simply loved my interviewers and I hoped they loved me too:)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is actually two interviews, one with a faculty member and one with a current student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Orientation with the entire group. Then grouped with your student guide, who you can talk to for a while. Then you get dropped off at the student interviewer's location. My student was great, very nice and a wealth of information. After that I went to the faculty interview. My faculty member was an admissions director. She was great. The whole thing was very conversational and relaxed. It felt more like a good conversation than an interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"We mingled with other students then were given a student guide. We talked in groups with our guide and asked questions then went to the interview with a professor. Next, we were escorted to our student interview and given a closing speech at the end by the chairman of admissions." More from this Member | Report Response

"When you arrive they have refreshments available and you have about 15-30 minutes to mingle with other candidates. Next there is a short info session, followed by interview with a student and a faculty member. A PY1 student escorts you to interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great! No need to stress at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a wonderful experience, definitely stress-free. We had one interview with a faculty member, and one with a current student. No need to worry!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great except the faculty interviewer did not teach and had only been at UNC one year so she could not answer some of my more specific questions. Students and faculty were nice and all seemed very involved in the school of Pharmacy." More from this Member | Report Response

"The overall experience was great!! Walked into the lobby to check in, went upstairs to mingle with the other interviewees, had a short informational session, had my first interview with a faculty member (30 minutes) and my second with a third year student (a little over 30 minutes), and then we were free to leave." More from this Member | Report Response

"The intervews were very laid-back. One interview was with a faculty member, and one was with a student. Each interview was about 25 mins long." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming, and the process was painless. Two short interviews (half hour each) with a faculty member and 3rd-4th year student, short tour and some food after! Beautiful campus, be sure to check it out." More from this Member | Report Response
