What impressed you positively?

"How friendly the staff was, there is NO dress code (you only have to wear your white coat during labs, formal meetings, etc), 100% passing rate on the licensing exam, the mock-pharmacy room, that most students seemed to be involved in one organization or another, and the fact that it is so easy to become an Ohio resident after my 1st year."

"The building is a little dated (not so much the actual facilities) and there is currently a ton of construction going on because of the new medical center that is being built across the street. However, it will be beautiful when it is complete." Report Response

"I would have relaxed more." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"1st part = 30 minute interview. 2nd part = tour of the school (NO essay/writing assignment). Overall, my experience was GREAT. Cincinnati is one of the oldest pharmacy schools and has an outstanding reputation. My only gripe is that because it is an older school the building is a little outdated. The classrooms and computer rooms are nice and the mock pharmacy room is really big and has a lot to offer. I was really impressed with how happy students seemed to be (based on how many students are involved in pharmacy-related organizations). I would be so proud to attend UC." Report Response
