What are your general comments?

"The day starts with an essay. The essay was not hard at all. I guess, as the students assured me before I went to complete it, that the AdCom isn't really concerned about your knowledge of the pharmacy profession, but how you think and structure your thinking and organizational skills when writing your thoughts down. The next 30 min. or so is spent interviewing with a faculty member, which is followed by a short Q & A session." Report Response
