What impressed you positively?

"The whole staff, faculty, and students were all awesome. The atmosphere was great. very relaxing and the interview process really looks for a fit for their program. Their program is very unique unlike anyother....." More from this Member | Report Response

"wingate takes great pride in the way that they have designed their pharmacy program. graduates from wingate have a lot of pharmacy experience and hours of clinical rotations under their belt. this program prepares their students for the real world, not just academics. they also have a new pharmacy building being built that will open in 2011." More from this Member | Report Response

"the dean's enthusiasm for the program; the fact that he addressed us for an hour; the insight into why the program was developed the way it was. their 100% pass rate last year and their opinion that passing the NABPLEX is a bare minimum to meet." More from this Member | Report Response

"The curriculum is different than most pharmacy schools. It is heavily based on experiential learning. Also, every one is very friendly at Wingate." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Dean's enthusiasm for the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very coordinated and the dean has inspired me a lot." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was so nice and seemed to really want to get to know you. It's really like a big family there and they make you feel at home even if you've never been to the campus or town before." More from this Member | Report Response

"the faculties seem really nice and willing to help the students as much as possible. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The curriculum has some great components from medical school curricula like problem-based learning, pharmacy experience development from day one. Also, the class size is smaller (about 70 students) and the instructors are mainly there to teach instead of teaching and doing research. Lastly, I interviewed on a school day and I was impressed by the high interaction and support between current Wingate students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything ,the staff were organized" More from this Member | Report Response

"everyone was very nice" More from this Member | Report Response

"Dean Supernaw was very open and honest about the program. Director of Admissions, Erinn Nichols, and her staff were fantastic hosts. Dr. Greene and Dr. Ferencz represent the faculty very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are state of the art and the faculty was very personable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dean Supernaw did a great job talking about the school, as well as the P3 students who gave us our tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are very nice, and the faculty and staff are very kind as well. I like the location. If you are from a big city, you may have to adjust to the rural setting, but it is close enough to Charlotte to enjoy all of the amenities of that city." More from this Member | Report Response

"faculty are extremely nice and very welcome." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone that I meet with was so nice," More from this Member | Report Response

"their program and their enthusiasm" More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean! Dr. Supernaw is so convincing he could sell me a rusted car on blocks! He was so passionate about his program and I completely agreed with many of his thoughts on the future for pharmacy... and how Wingate's program is built to prepare us like med school students are prepared. I was certainly inspired after his talk." More from this Member | Report Response

"i was a little late but was first interviewed" More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean took time to speak with us. Newer facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Dean is really enthusiastic about the program and has changed the traditional method of teaching pharmacy students in a forward direction. The faculty truly care about you and your concerns. The entire Charlotte area is well kept. In moving across the country, I know I will be safe." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that we were able to meet the Dean of the school of Pharmacy and his enthusiasm for the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty seem to really care about their students and their success in the program." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the location of the school, they could have moved it closer to the charlotte area in my own opinion." More from this Member | Report Response

"the town it is in currently (they are moving by 2011) is in the middle of nowhere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You only get to tour the pharmacy building, not the whole campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"No thing" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish we were able to tour the whole campus. If you want to see the whole campus, make sure to schedule a campus tour with Wingate for the day of your interview because you only get to see the Pharmacy building while there." More from this Member | Report Response

"the town of wingate is really small but it didn't really bother me much because the town next to it, monroe, seems like it is being developed into a bigger town. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The pharmacy building itself is REALLY small compared to the other pharmacy schools I've visited. This has mostly to do with the fact that Wingate is a small private school in a very small community. Though Wingate is less than an hour away from Charlotte, the area the school is located is somewhat isolated. Coming from a state university with a large enrollment and a relatively large residential population, I'm not used to that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Long day no refreshment." More from this Member | Report Response

"boring town and no prestige associated with wingate" More from this Member | Report Response

"1. Group activity was not monitored so I'm not sure what the school actually gets from the activity. 2. I was the only one from NC." More from this Member | Report Response

"The town of Wingate seems to be in the middle of nowhere. However, it's about a 40 minute drive to Charlotte so it's not that bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"The length of the interview (3 1/2 hours). " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish they had housing for their professional students. It would be much easier in relocating" More from this Member | Report Response

"Unfortunately the dean of the program wasn't there--we were told that he would be speaking to us first, but he was away on businees" More from this Member | Report Response

"The process was too long " More from this Member | Report Response

"We asked so many questions with the Dean that we took up too much of the scheduled time. Our 3 individual interviews were EXTREMELY short. My first interview was only 5 minutes. The next felt like 7 minutes. The third was around 7 minutes too." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"No refreshments or scheduled breaks." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Unveristy gym is really lame. It is in the student center and completly open to people passing by. No locker rooms there. Its just a glass front room with a few machines. Other than that, the campus is nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

"We were not offered water (the interview was more than 3 hours long), and the building was extremely cold (even with a business suit on)." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how tough the questions would be. last interview was very informal and easy, relatively speaking." More from this Member | Report Response

"That is curriculum is very experiential. Also, they are more geared towards community and ambulatory pharmacy." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a Baptist school and there is a strict dress code (business casual) which means you cannot even wear jeans to class. Also, they are obsessed with group work so don't apply there if you are overly shy and only like to study alone (they will ask about that in both the individual interview and group presentation). There are only about 12 other students there that day to interview (I thought there would be more than that) and everyone has their own schedule for the day." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"I knew that Wingate had a different type of curriculum, but I didn't know the full extent. I wished I did more research so that I could ask more questions about the program. Dean Supernaw comes from many institutions with a medical school, so I really wanted to ask him more questions. Also, the interview process takes more than the three hours that their admissions office reports where most people didn't get out until 1:30. So, be prepared for that if you are flying into Wingate." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Simply being you lets both the school and the student figure out if a successful match can be made." More from this Member | Report Response

"This year's Wingate interview format is different from last year's (which I read on this feedback site)" More from this Member | Report Response

"that the blind interview " More from this Member | Report Response

"The topic of the group project. ;) It was a great learning experience though." More from this Member | Report Response

"i wish i knew i was to be interviewed by 3 different faculty members" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the process lasts about four hours instead of the three that we were told. I had to leave early." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had called ahead of time to find out the names of the faculty I would be interviewing with so I could have researched their backgrounds first and prepared more specific questions for each individual." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I think that I prepared well enough to not be surprised." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great interview... GREAT SCHOOL" More from this Member | Report Response

"got to the interview, dean supernaw addressed us for an hour talking about how he pioneered the program and what wingate was all about, we had to tell him our name, where we were from, where we went to school and something interesting about ourselves. everyone is split into five groups and each group has their own schedule. i had a 30 minute break, then they took me upstairs and i interviewed with two faculty members for 30 mins. afterwards they took my group and another group (about 10 people) and put us in the conference room where we had to come up with a solution to a problem concerning illegally downloading music. we discussed it for 30 mins then dr ford came in and each person had to contribute to the groups solution. after that we went on a tour of the building then came back and had a 30 min question and answer session. the whole process lasted 4 hours! also, they have a system where they rank your gpa, pcat scores, interview scores, group discussion scores then they pick the magic number and if your rank is above that number you get accepted, if not you get waitlisted!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean spoke for an hour, group discussion (about 12 students) for 30 minutes on a pharmacy scenario then for another 30 minutes with a faculty member in a conference room, 20 minute interview with 2 faculty members, tour with 2 students, Q/A session with a couple faculty at the end, about 20-30 applicants at the session from 9AM to 1245PM, they mail out acceptance letters same day" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm still amazed at the people who show up with their mommy and daddy- not just hitch a ride with them, but take them through the process. these people should not be allowed in the doors! same for people wearing tennis shoes when professional attire is requested and those who show up late. ridiculous!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There are about 20 students per interview date. Each student gets their own folder with thier own schedule. First, everyone goes into one of the classrooms where Dean Supernaw talks to us for about an hour. He asks everyone their name, where their from, and where they completed their pre-pharm work. Most the things he talks about are on the Wingate pharmacy website. He is very personable and encourages everyone to asks many questions about the program. Next, according to your number, you will either participate in a group project/presentation, have a break, or go on the tour. There 11 people in my group for the group project/presentation. Basically, your group has 30 minutes to read, talk, compromise, etc. about an ethical situation. Then Dr. Ford comes in and your group discusses your work. She then asks questions which anyone has the opportunity to answer and contribute their thoughts. This lasts another 30 minutes. The tour is guided by two P3 students who are very helpful. They will answer any kind of question you have. They assure everyone that they have nothing to do with the admissions process, so they encourage many questions about anything. After the tour, 3 students at a time go up to the interview rooms. Each student gets their own room where 2 faculty members are there waiting. They are you general questions, like above. They really want to know about you. They want to know your strengths and weaknesses, how well you can handle a rigorous course load, how you feel about a dress code, what you do to relieve stress, etc. The whole day everyone apart of Wingate tries their best to make you comfortable, so they get the "real" you by the time the interview comes. They want to make sure you are a good fit for their school and they are a good fit for you. Also, I did not fill in the most difficult question section as I thought the questions were the standard that you would be asked at any pharmacy school. I gave the school a 6/10 and 5/10 for location and cultural life. It is about 40 minutes from Charlotte which is the closest city. The Charlotte area is where most of the hospitals are and where you'll do your rotations. With that said you'll definitely need a car. I heard that they are thinking of moving the school to Matthews which is a lot closer to Charlotte, but they said it's only talk now and wouldn't happen for a couple of years. The campus is suburban so you'll need to travel to Charlotte for the night scene. *Above was just my personal experience. Your schedule for the day may be different than mine above. The interview itself was about 20 minutes for me, but your at the school about 3 hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"very great!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I got there about 20 minutes early which gave me time to sign in, look through the folder that they give you, and observe current pharmacy students. Then, the Dean speaks for an hour about the program and why it is set up the way that it is. Afterwards, I went straight to my interview and that lasted 20 minutes, which was 10 minutes shorter than scheduled, but it was relatively laid back and comfortable. Then, I had a 30 minute break which gave me time to meet the people who was going to be in the group project/presentation with me. Then, we (me and 4 others) went to a conference room and were given 30 minutes alone to agree on an answer to an "ethical" question related to pharmacy and 15 mins to present it to a faculty and an additional 15 mins to answer questions the faculty will ask. Then, we went on a tour of the building with a current student and that lasted about an hour. So, if you add up the time spent for each thing, it will most likely go over the 3 hours that they tell you it will take." More from this Member | Report Response

"When you first arrive to the school, you'll have to check in at the office. For the first hour, they take you into a classroom in which the dean talks about the pharmacy program and also lets us introduce ourselves to break the ice. Afterwards, you'll get split up into groups. one group will have a group discussion while the other group either goes to their interview, tour, or have a break. afterwards, the group with the discussion will soon go to their personal interview, tour, or have a break. the second group then goes to their discussion. the process will take up to 3 hours. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started out with an introduction of the school by Dean Supernaw, who really wanted the students to ask questions about the program that is novel and recently new. After that, the interviewees and I split up into groups based on an assigned numbers and participated in activities. For me, I took part in a group project involving some pharmacy scenario. There's a Wingate representative in the room evaluating our small group skills after the interviewees' deliberations. I don't know how Wingate assesses our small group skills given that there wasn't a representative in the room during the process itself. Afterwards, I took a tour of the building and then I interviewed with two faculty." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good school.The program is very new but will not trade it in for other schools.Very homely atmosphere.You will know if you will like the program or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewed with Dr. Greene and Dr. Ferencz. Both were enthusiastic about the Wingate program and seemed to enjoy teaching there. The chemistry in the room led to a very informal interview, and I felt relaxed and able to be myself. I wish I could have spent longer in the room just chatting, but only had 30 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean spoke to all of us for about 45 minutes and described the program in detail, telling us exactly why it's constructed the way it is and answering any questions that we had. Then we were split up by interview time. Those that had interviews went upstairs and the rest of us worked on a group presentation. After that we were taken on a tour and then brought to our interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dean Supernaw talked. We then split up. The individual interviews were given by all THREE faculty members together. There's a 1/2 hour break. Then conference room for a group project. We worked out a scenario and you present it to the assistant dean. Lastly, is the tour given by the students" More from this Member | Report Response

"You get your interview packet and sit out in the lobby and wait for everyone to arrive. Dean Supernaw goes over the program and then the one-on-one interviews begin. We kind-of went over with Dean Supernaw and my first interview started off kind-of awkward. The professor made a comment about us being late. I didn't let it bother me though; it wasn't my fault and there was nothing I could do to fix the problem. After the 3 one-on-one interviews, we returned to the conference room to do our writing sample and then our group assignment. These weren't that difficult. Basically commonsense issues. After that, we toured the building and left." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great...small group of about 8 students. After everyone is checked in, they take you to a small conference room where someone from the program gives an orientation and tried to provide info about the program. Can ask questions, then taken to the first of 3 interviews. Teachers escort you to the next interview. Next is a writing exercise, followed by a group exercise and discussion. Then you're done" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great experience I really liked the school and their program and the small size of the classes not care about the location it is kind of middle of nowhere but if they accept me I will go for sure" More from this Member | Report Response

"1) Dean explained his program and school. 2) Q&A session 3) Three individual interviews 4) Personal essay 5) Group project 6) Student tour I was incredibly nervous throughout my interview because it was my first. My voice shook when the dean asked me to first introduce myself in front of the group. Like in all group interviews, try to be prepared with something unique about yourself for when you're introduced to everyone. ASK YOUR INTERVIEWERS QUESTIONS!!! Have AT LEAST 3 questions lined up for your interviewers. But you're smart if you made it this far so most of the questions will come off the top of your head. Becareful not to have the dean answer ALL of your questions. ;) He's incredibly informative so save some questions for your interviewers. -Don't worry about the group project. The professor makes it a great learning experience for everyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive experience. Wingate pharmacy is new and small which may or may not be the best for you." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt a little rushed from one interview to the next, but overall it was a relaxing experience. It felt like a normal conversation, not a typical interview where they grind with question after question." More from this Member | Report Response

"The writing sample was on a subject unrelated to pharmacy. You only needed common sense to be able to write it." More from this Member | Report Response
