"I didn't think I would like this school as much until I went on the interview. Driving to Austin was a long ride, but it was all worth it. I loved the atmosphere of this school and I truly enjoyed my interview experience. I came an hour before my interview time and talked to pharmacy students. They were still setting up, but they were open to any questions. There are refreshments as well so don't worry about being thirsty or hungry at the interview. I liked that they only had a 1-1 interview. I dislike group interviews with a passion so it wasn't stressed at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"I came way early and went to the faculty lounge and then went to tour. However, I made the interview on time, but just wondering if I was late or not was really nerve racking. you could always do a tour later but a interview should always come first" More from this Member | Report Response

"Old pharmacy facilities, a few students seem overly competitive" More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived 45 minutes early and the students in the lounge told me that since I arrived so early, they were going to send me on the tour before my interview and (their words exactly) "if you're late to your interview, don't worry, it'll be OUR fault". I regret listening to them because halfway through my tour I was yanked out to interview. The student taking me to my interview room GOT US LOST. Running outside in a full suit & heels in 80 degree weather is not my idea of a good time. When we finally found the room my student wouldn't even give me a few minutes to compose myself before stepping into the interview. Apparently the student thought it was funny because as he was walking away he was laughing to the receptionist that he had gotten us lost. How inappropriate....this is a hugely important day for me and ultimately, he made it seem like I was late & unprepared for my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview started 12 minutes late and last only for 20 minutes since the interviewer said he was running behind?! There was no question about my qualifications or about any personal experiences I had in the field as it was shown on my personal statement! Their admission process!" More from this Member | Report Response

"construction" More from this Member | Report Response

"Every question they asked me has been listed on this site. No surprises. I was hoping for something more, something extra. It seemed anticlimactic. Also, most of the rooms and lecture halls were locked for our tour so we resorted to pressing our noses against the windows to try and see into rooms. I am curious why everything was locked up when tours were planned all day. Not much of a tour in that respect. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Awful student life slideshow. Just plain awful; Austin and UT are way more fun than what the presentation indicates. Underwhelming tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"We only had a faculty member speak to us for maybe a total of 5 minutes. It felt like they know that they are a top school, so they didn't take the steps to impress us and show that we should choose UT" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a very young crowd interviewing (since many come from a 2+4 program)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Had to wait an hour and a half after my interview before the tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking" More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't like the video about UT and Austin very much. There was too much shaking and moving around--makes me dizzy and want to fall asleep." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"The pharmacy building is kind of small " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Other than the wait b/t the interview and writing essay. If you had a 10am interview then you had to wait 1:30 for the writing portion, pretty long wait if you ask me." More from this Member | Report Response

"UT is a huge campus, but from what the students told me, all the pharmacy classes are in the pharmacy building. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The slideshow and tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour. This is the 5th floor, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The food!! Stale pretzels and cookies... They did have a lot of drinks, but mostly diet (urg! artificial sweetener)" More from this Member | Report Response

"They needed to update their slide show, but it was still good for non-UT students to see." More from this Member | Report Response

"not much, I knew what to expect" More from this Member | Report Response

"How long they took to tell me I was accepted. It doesn't take 3, almost 4 months, to hand out decisions. They need to get more organized and stop making excuses just because they didn't expect the # of applicants for this fall. Practically every school in the nation experienced the same increase and they still managed to work efficiently. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview went great and I should not of been so nervous!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed the day would be. No need to stress out about it at all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you are unfamiliar with the ares, I would highly suggest Google maps or hire a taxi (or both!)I am lucky enough to have a boyfriend who went to UT as an undergrad, so he knew how to navigate traffic and exactly where to drop me off." More from this Member | Report Response

"The level of difficulty in the interview questions. The fact they seemed to be aware of all my information, though supposedly closed file. That the 5th floor is actually on the 3rd floor." More from this Member | Report Response

"Zero ethical or situational questions... I used SDN to prepare, but it didn't help me at all except to expect the 'why pharmacy' question. I think they have changed up admissions this year or something; I know it used to be rolling... it seemed they have changed up the questions as well.." More from this Member | Report Response

"Remember to scope out the place first. The campus is big and there is construction so be sure to arrive a day before or just a few hours early so you are aware of the building. The interviewers will be writing down your responses so don't think that you're being ignored." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wished I had known they were going to ask me so many questions about my work experience. I would have practiced bragging about myself in an eloquent manner. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer could be a pharmacist and not a faculty member! That the interviewer had no interest in my qualifications and experiences in the field! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Come up with specific answers to SDN feedback." More from this Member | Report Response

"The traffic problem. The university was hosting two or three other huge events on campus. (Texas Relays for one and something called 40 acres??) Getting onto campus was a headache. Parking was a nightmare, and that is probably an understatement. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Stress level is very low; lower than you think it will be." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is only one tour which is at the very end of all the interviews. So even if you interviewed at 1, you had to sit in the waiting room for 3 hours until all of the interviews were over. If you hate waiting, schedule a later interview. My interview ended at 3 and we didn't move on to the next part until 4:45." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no tour of the campus. I worked really hard on finding super comfortable heels since I was expecting a boring tour of campus (I go to UT already...) however, there was just a short tour of the buildings. a lot of wasted shopping time :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer did not have a copy of my transcripts, letters of rec or PCAT info. I thought I woould have to discuss some of that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone is constantly observing you and taking notes." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's definitely not as stressful as I thought it would be. I would definitely be more relaxed but still cautious of how I appeared outwardly. Don't be nervous, but don't be a slob either. You never get a second chance at making a first impression. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing catches you off guard" More from this Member | Report Response

"It is a good idea to come ahead of time to talk to the students - it's calming." More from this Member | Report Response

"They didn't ask me any ethical questins. If i knew I would not have worried so much." More from this Member | Report Response

"i wish i had researched a little more and be more comfortable with talking about why i want to be a pharmacist. it is important to know how the career is chaning and the role of pharmacists." More from this Member | Report Response

"rush hour on friday in austin starts at 1pm and ends at 7pm!" More from this Member | Report Response

"We could leave after the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"To prepare for the writing section, it's usually about commenting on some cliche quote, but it can catch you off-guard" More from this Member | Report Response

"How overrated the program is. I know some people who were accepted to the program that should NOT have been, and I know others who were denied who should have been accepted. UT is a good school, but the way they treat their applicants definitely sealed my decision to go out-of-state. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had know more about privacy issues regarding medical records and doctor patient confidentiality." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known more in-depth information about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"None." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day really gave me a strong sense of what the college is like - we got to see the building, talk to current students, listen to some current professors, and learn about specific programs and classes. Also I liked the fact that it was only 4 hours and not the whole day. They even had food! Really well-organized." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a phenomenal school with a phenomenal pharmacy program. All students and staff have the utmost professionalism at all times. There was a lot to do, but the dual Group/One-on-One format interviews I think help to give the school the best portrait of the applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"this school is awesome, too bad im in the dumber side of the applicant pool to get admitted cuz I would go here in a heartbeat and im an out of state student" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was really just a conversation with the interviewers! They were really nice, attentive, and genuinely interested in getting to know you. Just go in there with a mindset of talking to someone about what draws you to pharmacy! I think you will naturally be able to impress them as long as you are knowledgeable about the field. Don't worry. The interviewers are very very nice!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Fantastic school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome day! Come relaxed and prepared to impress :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Tougher interview than I expected, practice for this one." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school needs to handle the interview and admission process professionally!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Smile for no reason and be very friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived a hour before my interview and I am very glad I did. I had the opportunity to chat with current P1, P2, and P3 students in the lounge. They were all extremely helpful and kind. We talked about UT's curriculum, survival tips for the first year, and the incredible selection of electives. That hour with current students solidified UT as my top choice. What an amazing program! The interviewers only had two essays: Why pharmacy? and Why UT? Other than those essays, it was a closed file. Everything about the experience was laid back. Without exception, everyone was professional and welcoming. The slide show was okay~not as bad as I had anticipated! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure you wear a full suit, girls included, and comfortable shoes. Look professional. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed my interview process. The students and faculty were really nice and friendly. They give the tour and treat you as if you have already been accepted, which makes you feel really good. They also stress that the faculty is really nice and that there are so many different ways to get help if you need it. Also, they really made me feel like once you get in there is no competition, unlike prepharm. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview overall felt like it went well. There were no surprise questions. Everything they asked was pretty much already posted in the database. All they have in front of them from your application is your personal statement, so be prepared for a couple of questions tailored specifically to it. At the end they asked me if there was anything that I wanted to add that hadn't been said that wasn't on my application or hadn't been addressed during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Fairly non-stressful interview. It was my first of the season, so it was a good start. Current students were really helpful and answered a lot of questions. I was accepted about 4 weeks later." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was enjoyable. Everyone was enthusiastic and helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very low stress and, I would say, easy. There was no battering of questions, the interviewer was very nice and personable and it was more ilke aconversation. other than the fact that she and the student were taking notes! " More from this Member | Report Response

"everyone is nice, polite, and professional. questions are very freeform and pretty much a speak-your-mind situation. a little difficult to guage how you're doing; student interviewer doesnt write much but pharmacist interviewer spends the entire time writing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive. My interviewer put me at ease right away. Ladies and gentlemen make sure to wear a full suit as well as comfy shoes...I have blisters because I wore new ones. You will walk a lot." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a P3 and a professor interview me, both were very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think it went well. They asked no horribly stressful or uncomfortable questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, there's no need to get stress out. With one or two exceptions, the srudents and fauclty were really nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had Wilcox (assistant Dean) and a pharmacist, so I was really nervous going in. The interview process is a LOT shorter here than other schools that I have interviewed at so far. Talking to the students before the interview calms you down, so be sure to ask them questions before your interview. Also, they asked me a bunch of questions about the pharmacy field and not any at all about how I was qualified FOR the school itself, but that's because I think they knew I worked in a pharmacy for awhile. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very positive experience, it really makes you to want to be part of it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are extremely nice and helpful. They really try to make you feel welcome. Just wished I handled some of the tough interview questions better." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty intense--we talked nearly non-stop for 50 minutes, and I was asked 7-8 different questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I went in early, talked to students in the lounge. Had my interview. Interviewers don't have any information about you except your personal statement. So no need to worry about what are they going to think about your grades or PCAT score. I think they were just trying to get to know me better by asking me tons of questions from my personal statement." More from this Member | Report Response

"Got to the school about an hour before my scheduled interview where I was greeted by pharmacy students who took alot of the stress off right before the interview. Went on a tour of the school. Did a writing sample and watched video about Austin and UT. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel comfortable with my answers, but at the same time, if it was easy for me, it's easy for everyone else." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think that the interview was great--i really liked my interviewer and i think that it was good. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was pretty easy. The questions are from SDN like everyone says. The essay on this particular day was the SAME topic from the sample format. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was great. Make sure to study the SDN questions and know your personal statement. After that you shoul be fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview went well. Was I perfect? No. My best advice is, gain as much experience as possible (as a pharm tech) b/c it's something to talk about during the interview. Having a non-science degree was a huge plus for me b/c they were really intrigued with why I was making the switch and how I could use my non-science degree within the pharm-industry. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was awesome! Totally loved the city and the school. Current students were great and helped ease up for the interview. Interviewers were nice and friendly. Short and quick interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure you have questions!! Make a list of questions to bring (in one of those leather file things). Sometimes they are done asking you questions way ahead of time so you have to fill that time just asking questions. Also, don't be nervous! :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was all right. No stress really!!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was great. I arrived about an hour prior to my interview time and was greeted by very friendly pharmacy students and made me feel very welcome. The interviewers were also nice and tried to make it as less stressful as possible. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very long." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was Professor Gonzalez, an Electives Professor. She was extremely nice and always smiling. I didn't think my interview experience was stand out, but I did my best to answer all her questions and made sure to ask a lot of my own questions at the end. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Richards interviewed me and it was a positive experience. She asked some tough questions (not the easy cheesy "what's your favorite class" type question). She seems tough and has high expectations for the applicants but I did not find her to be overly intimidating and not at all nasty (as I was partially expecting based on the girls comment about the interviewer "making" her cry)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Looking forward to starting pharm school =)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was interviewed by a professor of pharmacoeconomics. She was very friendly and the interview was more like a conversation. Be sure to know what you're talking about, though. She was not afraid to ask why do you feel this way? or What are some examples? The best thing to do is to just be yourself. Don't give answers you think they're looking for, because they WILL see through it! Also, have some questions prepared for the interviewer when she asks if you have any. Overall, it went great." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a research-based school that may not always have the best professors, but everyone there did seem to be confident in their abilities. The interview was really relaxed, the slideshow was really outdated and a bit boring and dull. My interviewer was a recent graduate and she had a lot of great things to say about the school. The interview was mainly run by students so it's a really laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"One word - Unorganized." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very positive learning experience. Though I was stressed at the beginning I began to relax pretty quickly." More from this Member | Report Response

"When I went in, I was pretty anxious, but by the time it was all over, I was feeling much better, thanks to the positive, upbeat attitude of everyone at the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Really laid back" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was only with one person (a faculty member) - but some candidates may have had a student there too. The interview was not very stressful and the questions were very basic. The essay was what I expected - if you read the information about the essay on their web page, you will be well prepared. There was no problem solving exercise. There was a slide show run by students, which was nice but not all that informative for someone who did their prereqs at UT. There was also a tour run by students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was helpful to arrive early because they have a room set up where you can talk with some of the pharmacy students. This was very helpful to relieve some tension. I personally had only one interviewer, but some had two people. However, the interview was very relaxed, and seemed to flow more like a regular conversation. The rest of the day consisted of the slide show and essay, and they did away with the problem solving skills test." More from this Member | Report Response
