Downtown Memphis is seeing a lot of urban renewal right now, and there are all kinds of new buildings and renovations being done.

"The whole visit from beginning to end was impressive. All the faculty and students were very nice and the campus was great." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great program. I interviewed at 4 other schools and UT was the only one where the dean of the college was actually present. He made it a point to meet everyone personally and shake their hand. UT is only pharmacy school in the nation that has pharmacology in their first year... they also have 18 mos. of internships instead of the usual 12." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area; Memphis is the arm-pit of Tennessee. I was looking at apartments near the campus and everything is section-8 living (government assisted living). There are continuous complaints of roaches and theft by tenants. Also, there's nothing but fried chicken and gas stations in the area." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"the location of this school was like a dirty downtown area; not a traditional campus like I expected at all" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school's location. Downtown Memphis is kinda "bleh", but it'll do." More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel like I was pretty well prepared, and I wash't caught off guard by anything." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure you find a place to park the day before or at least bring cash to park in the deck. I found free parking near the school but only had 15 minutes to get to the interview after that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I had prepared well enough. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Forgot to bring a picture of myself." More from this Member | Report Response

"Entering class size is 200 but a portion of those move to the Knoxville campus after the first year. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I wanted to go there. I cried as I drove into the state. I called my best friend and sobbed to her over the phone about how much I hated the state, especially being only a few miles into Memphis. But once I went on the tour and saw how delightful the college is, my emotions did a 180 and I found myself constantly saying, "when can I start"?" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was pretty prepared" More from this Member | Report Response

"hmmm, I guess I should have thought more about which campus I would prefer to stay at (some students transfer to the Knoxville campus after the 1st year). You're given the choice to choose your preference at the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Out-of-state minority students are treated as in-state." More from this Member | Report Response

"That nearly everybody wore black or dark colors. I wish I had worn something more colorful to help me stand out a little better." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Again, laid back interview and do not where heels." More from this Member | Report Response

"They want you to be there, so don't get nervous. If you have been given the opportunity for an interview then they already like you. Show them that you like their school and what interests you the most." More from this Member | Report Response

"There are other comments that give a great outline of the events of the day so I won't go there. But I will say the interviewers made me a lot less stressed when they informed me they are advocating for me when the admission committee meets and they need me to let them know everything that will help them argue my case in the meeting. So just keep in mind that your interviewer is wanting to come up with reasons why they should accept you and not the other way around." More from this Member | Report Response

"UT-Memphis is an urban campus so don't go to this school expecting to see something that's not there. This school is right in the middle of Memphis and there are many opportunities to be had but someone expecting a traditional campus should be warned. I was prepared for this since my undergrad was very urban." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a fun and educational experience at my interview. The staff and students are the most awesome people and want to see the best for everyone that is interested in UT Pharmacy. Just prepare for the interview and dress professionally. They definitely look out for you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The administration is super fast with everything. I got an interview request 5 hours my application was summited, and I got accepted 5 hours after my interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was an overall positive experience. The people were friendly and laid back. The interview was not stressful at all.. the interviewers are simply trying to get to know you. The school was very impressive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"We were given a small packet to fill out. It contained a couple short answer questions. They used this during the interview. Then we were given an informational presentation that talked about the school and gave us a bit of a background on our presenter, Dr. Eoff. Afterwards, P1 and P2 students gave us a tour of the facilities. This is where the magic began and I guarantee you will fall in love with the school. The enthusiasm of the tour guides was by far contagious. After the long (1.5 hours) tour, you sit and wait for your name to be called. Our tour ran long and they rushed us from one building to another. My interview ran long because I talk a lot I guess and they seemed to show interest in me, so they asked several personal-related questions. Afterwards, you eat a lot of fried food and cobbler, while listening to various speakers talk about things such as the PharmD/PhD program, financial aid, and boasting of the schools ego." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers made me feel relaxed. It felt like we were just having a conversation instead of being in an interview session." More from this Member | Report Response

"Morning starts off with a one hour questionaire and essay. Then a 1 and a half hour tour of the campus, then the interviews, then a lunch" More from this Member | Report Response

"Someone else on here has summarized the day pretty well so I won't repeat it. My only advice is be prepared for the questions. The ones on this website are excellent! Don't write down your answers because you'll tend to memorize them and sound robotic. Just write a few points that you want to highlight. Also have your own questions for them. It shows that you are interested. Good Luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was intimidating at first to see 25-30 other students in the interview process with you but I got my confidence back when I was talking one on one with the professor and a student. Interview was very well coordinated, and quite lenghty. Be prepared to answer a few pages of questions when you first come in to the interview location. Interviewers and students giving the tour were nice, and the lunch they provided in the end was a good end to the interview process. Overall it was a positive experience; I just wish the area was nicer." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview went great. I was interviewed by a student and faculty member. They were both very nice and made the interview much more relaxed than I expected. They were also very helpful with any questions I had about the school and the memphis area." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very nervous but the interviers made me very comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Go into conference room and fill out questionaire. See a presentation by the dean. Divid in groups. Half go to do the tour while the other half stay put. The group that stays put watches a presentation by some students while you wait to be interviewed. After the interview part, the groups switch and the other group goes on the tour. After both groups have interviewed and toured, you go to a banquet room and eat lunch. There are a few people that get introduced during the lunch. After lunch you can talk to the people in charge of the combined PhD/PharmD program if you are interested." More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at the interview late because I forgot the map to the place. Found a guy on the street to take me to the interview. We chatted about different stuff on the way there. My interview time came, and the guy that lead me there was one of my interviewer. So, I didn't really get asked alot of questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"i really like my experience...the interview ended at 2 pm and i received my acceptance call on my cell phone the next day at 8am..when they want you..they really want you." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were approximately 25-30 interviewing on the same day. When we arrived, we were handed a packet of papers some of which needed to be filled out and handed in during the interview. They divided the students into two groups. While one group toured the campus, the other group stayed for one-on-one interviews. Then, the groups switched. After the interviews and campus tour, we had lunch. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great overall experience. They placed a lot of emphasis not only on what you did in college but also what you did in high school, which was kind of interesting, because none of the schools I interviewed at did such a thing. Other than that, there seemed to be a close-knit group of pharmacy students that attended the school, and they seemed to be "real" about the whole pharmacy school experience. Also, Dr. Eoff(the Dean of Admissions) seemed to be very receptive to the students and wants to help them succeed. The interview was pretty laid back, nothing really too extreme. There was a lot of laughing and it was more conversational then anything else." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed all my interview questions and I am honored that I was interviewed considering all the pool of applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was an absolutely stress-free interview. I have no idea what I was worried about. When you walked into the building, you were given a name tag and a packet. The packet contained a schedule for the day, which group you were in, and a packet which you had to fill out additional information about yourself and write an impromptu essay. There were about 35-40 applicant for that day and we were divided into two groups. The first group went on interviews individually, filled out packets, and watched a video given by class members while the other group went on the tour. The interview consisted of two committee members who were really nice. The interviewers were very friendly and just wanted to find out more about you, since all they had in front of them was your packet and your recommendation letters. If you have issues (bad grades or bad PCAT scores) to discuss, now is the time to do it because these interviewers are basically your advocates when they talk about admitting you into the school. After about an hour and a half, the groups switched. The tour was really thorough. After everyone was finished, we ate lunch and listened to speeches about financial aid, student life, and the curriculum. I was very impressed with the fact that they told you about the admissions process, what to expect after the interview, and what the admissions committee was looking for in an applicant---I appreciated the honesty.

"I had a great interview experience. We stayed downtown so that we'd have easy access to get to the school early the next morning. When we got there we were given name tags and a schedule for the day. They split us up into two groups. The first group went on a tour of the campus while the second group was waiting to be interviewed. (individually) After the second group got back they waited to be called for interviews. While we waited for the interview we had to complete a questionairre and write an impromptu essay. The interview was rather laid back, but I'm guessing that depends on who you get as an interviewer. After the interviews and tours were over we had a nice lunch and listened to different students and faculty speak about the school and the program. All in all I felt like I learned a lot about the school that day and was really impressed with the whole process." More from this Member | Report Response
