It has state-of-the-art compounding rooms as well as fully equipped mock pharmacies! Really nice set up. Also the staff and first year students we got to talk to were really down to earth. The school also offers you to get in-state tuition after your first year if you apply for residency! Great facilities at a incredible price!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

" More from this Member | Report Response

"The openness of faculty - I chased down the head of the program I'm interested in and had a lovely discussion with him." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The writing exercise was really easy, but I didn't like that we had to do that right before our interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The directions to the place! I think the school is prestigious, but it aims toward pleasing their area. For example, they teach about native american remedies. I don't know how much use that would be for me. Also, most of the people that were interviewed came from UNM so they already know some of the staff and students. As an out of state, I felt left out already." More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

""Light lunch" - that was more than i'd eaten all week!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is hiding its problems. My questions: "where can I find a hardcopy about the school programs? How many students got kicked out in the past years? Why changed the programs including the admission requirement 2 months before the first cutoff date/early admission?..." I did not get any answer from the interviewer!" More from this Member | Report Response

"THAT THEY LOOK AT ALL GRADES NOT JUST PREREQS AS I HAD BEEN ADVISED HAD A FEW C'S AND W'S NOT IN PREREQS BUT OTHER CLASSES" More from this Member | Report Response

"UNM Pharm dep has little resources: no computers, no techno lab, no information, no real student organizations available for current students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The word adboe and the meaning of IH. " More from this Member | Report Response

"mmm didn't learn a whole lot - maybe that they don't consider the PCAT (I figured it wouldn't hurt)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The UNM pharmacy school was on the ACPE probation because its students failed classes. If I knew this before, I would not apply to the school.

What are your general comments?

"My interviewers were young, hip and so friendly. They seemed really curious about my personality, and I think the questions you get will be different from whoever you get. Some people said that the interviewers tried to kind of "break" them when they saw a bad grade in their transcript, so they were quite inquisitive if you have a bad grade. So be prepared to answer it. Other than that, they kind of had a normal guideline I think of typical questions. The cost is low after the first year if you're out of state (18100). It makes me want to go here, but certain things kind of throw me off about the school. I don't know. It seems good on paper, but I am scared. A lot of the students kind of expressed that the school seemed a lot harder then their undergrad, but I wonder if thats because they are from UNM." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview here is mostly about judging your personality. I didn't think my student interviewer liked me all that much but then I got an acceptance letter a week later so... just be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the school is great. Everyone was very friendly and it was overall a pretty low-stress experience. The interview was very casual - they just want to get to know you." More from this Member | Report Response

"30 minute essay portion before 30 minute interview so read up on health related issues (Medicare, ethics, etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's nerve racking like any other interview, but try to enjoy the day. Remember you are there because they want to accept you." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a relaxed environment. The faculty and students were very friendly and the dean is very proud of the school. They were very well organized. There was an informative Powerpoint presentation on the 4-yr curriculum, but other than that, no long presentations. Everything was right on schedule. Even the tour was very well done. The interview portion was 30 minutes long with 2 interviewers. It was a little friendlier than an interrogation, but they do ask a lot of questions. I think they asked 12-14 questions in that time, but they do leave enough time for you to ask them questions about anything, about them, the school, or just living in Albuquerque." More from this Member | Report Response

"First the dean of pharmacy talked to us, all of the interviewers introduced themselves and then the applicants did the same. We were given the opportunity to speak with students currently enrolled in the pharm. program. We then had our writing exercise and when we were done with that we either had our interview or tour of the school. The tour is kinda long so wear sensible shoes. There is nothing to be afraid of." More from this Member | Report Response

"most terrible experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very laid back environment, even though I was so nervous I was about to vomit. I've been in the prepharm society at the school for 1.5 yrs and met lots of upper classman thru different events. They are all extremely diverse, outgoing, and helpful-I couldn't believe how helpful, not competitive. My A&P class was after a pharmacy class, and several of the students would hang around, laugh, and talk with the professor after. Also, a letter came out from the dean with our admission packet denouncing the rumor that they were on probation with the board. He was available for add'l comment. Also, it is a huge advantage to be a resident-they take about 10-15 out of state. (lottery or genius) At the last annual APha-ASP meeting in FL, one of our students made the national board, and put us on the map, it's just going to get better." More from this Member | Report Response

"IT WAS VERY PLEASANT AND WAS PROFESSIONAL OF COURSE THEY DO NOT CATER TO YOU AS YOU ARE GOING TO BE A DOCTOR OF PHARMACY DONT WANT JUST ANYBODY. PLEASE DISREGARD WHAT THE NATIVE AMERICAN SAID EARLIER AS THERE IS A PREFERENCE FOR NATIVE AMERICANS, HISPANICS AS THEY ARE DISADVANTAGED- AFFIRMATIVE ACTION WHICH I AM FOR AS THEY ARE UNDERREPRESENTED. HOWEVER THEY ALSO WANT A PERSON WHO IS CAPABLE OF THE COURSELOAD, ETC. SO SHE SHOULDNT JUST GET A FREE TICKET TO PHARM SCHOOL, WONDER WHAT HER GPA WAS, ETC. BUT IF YOU ARE SOLID STUDENT AND HAVE A STRONG INTEREST YOU WILL BE ACCEPTED, JUST DONT EXPECT THEM TO CATER TO YOU IT IS NOT A HANDOUT YOU EARN WHAT YOU GET!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is not really difficult, but why do I have to care if I now know I don't get the admission? It just tries to get all the people to boast about its program!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was great. I made a great impression. I didnt lie throughout the interview. I gave honest answers to all questions. I researched UNM very well. I also asked very good questions throughout the interview. I feel very confident that I will be accepted to UNM but who knows! " More from this Member | Report Response

"very positive. If anything too positive - everyone seemed to have a fantastic interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The UNM pharmacy school boasted to much about its success and never mentioned about its failure in the past years. My interview went through without any problem because I knew all the questions and the good answers from this studentdoctor website." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall very good... they really seemed like they wanted to know me.... Plus I just got my acceptance letter!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not worry about this interview because I was the one of a few people with the highest GPA there. I hope I'll get the result in a few weeks." More from this Member | Report Response

"very well. dont take any tension. they just want to know who you are and what are your future plan" More from this Member | Report Response

"all in all it was good experience and they treat you really well. We had students seat by us during the branch and they answered any questions that we had. You have to write an essay about basicly why pharmacy" More from this Member | Report Response

"Writing took 30 min, interview took 30, and the tour took 20-25. A staff and a student gave the interview. This was a small interview. I heard they will have 2-3 more during this spring semester. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The meeting and lunch took 1 hour. Writing took 30 min. The interview had almost all questions similar to this studentdoctor.net! The given schedule was good for me because it allowed me to go home early. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. The interviewers introduced themselves during the lunch (but YOUR interviewers would not talk to YOU, except for saying Hi, in another word, they kept away from you to avoid bias in the official interview). The students guiding the tour are informative and friendly (but I forgot to ask about the name tag). The writing test question was appropriate. There were a faculty interviewer and a visitor one who was a working pharmacist. The interview session gave me a positive impression about the not only their program, but also about the school as a whole." More from this Member | Report Response
