What are your general comments?

"It was very laid back environment, even though I was so nervous I was about to vomit. I've been in the prepharm society at the school for 1.5 yrs and met lots of upper classman thru different events. They are all extremely diverse, outgoing, and helpful-I couldn't believe how helpful, not competitive. My A&P class was after a pharmacy class, and several of the students would hang around, laugh, and talk with the professor after. Also, a letter came out from the dean with our admission packet denouncing the rumor that they were on probation with the board. He was available for add'l comment. Also, it is a huge advantage to be a resident-they take about 10-15 out of state. (lottery or genius) At the last annual APha-ASP meeting in FL, one of our students made the national board, and put us on the map, it's just going to get better." Report Response
