What impressed you positively?

"I was expecting the area that the school was in to be really scary, but it wasn't at all. Downtown Memphis is seeing a lot of urban renewal right now, and there are all kinds of new buildings and renovations being done. Also, the school made a point to invite parents and spouses to the event (though of course they did not get to sit in on the interview portion) and they fed us lunch at the end. This was very nice."

What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
