What are your general comments?

"Walk in and get a nametag, sit in a conference room with the 14 or so other interviewees, Associate Dean and Associate Admissions Director come in and talk for about 50 min about Mercer, its history, you interview, etc. Then you break up into groups of three and take a tour with a first year pharmacy student. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions, as it is very laid back. Then you take turns, one person goes to an interview with a P3 or P4 student, one goes to the writing section, one goes to the Faculty interview. The student interview is nothing to worry about, they're just trying to get to know you. The writing section is pretty short, also nothing to worry about. The Faculty interview is a little more formal, but if you are relaxed its still no big deal. Everything was very laid back and relaed for me. Great atmosphere. ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS TO EVERYONE. EVEN THE SAME QUESTIONS TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE." Report Response
