What are your general comments?

"Overall, the experience was a very good one! I was way more nervous than I needed to be. I checked in, sat in a room with a group of individuals at a big table. The Dean came in with members of the adcom and spoke to us. Then we were asked to go around the room and introduce ourselves and give our reason for wanting to become a pharmacist. We then broke into groups of three, were given a short tour by a P2, had a 30 minute interview with a faculty member, a 15 minute interview with a P2 student and then a short writing assessment on a topic relating to pharmacy. The topics are somewhat ethical but general. The whole process lasts 3 hours and it goes by quickly! I received my acceptance letter today!" Report Response
