"The essay was the first part, and took up about 50 minutes, (the topic related to natural disasters and pharmacy preparation for patients) We talked with the dean and the admissions director proir to the interview. The interview lasted an hour, and was in a relaxed conversational group format. Very conversational style and related to the interviewee as a person rather than about the profession and knowledge of the school. Very Easygoing." Report Response
