What are your general comments?

"I had a great experience there. I felt I could ask the students anything since these are not the same students that will interview you. The Dean is super nice and seems to really look out for the students. The faculty and student that I interviewed with were very friendly and didn't really grill me. I felt we were just talking and they genuinely were trying to see if we were a match for each other. After the interview, I felt that this was a great school, with a good reputation, and that it would teach me what I need to know to become a great pharmacist. Luckily, I got my acceptance letter 4 weeks later" Report Response
