What are your general comments?

"IT's a VERY VERY LONG interview. The faculty and staff seem really nice and helpful, the students are really proud of their school and show it too. If the school was in a different city, it'd be a wonderful school. The building is nice and parking wouldn't be a problem. Make sure you get enough sleep because towards the end, the day drags and so do your eyes. There's an orientation that lasts almost 2 hours, your critical thinking test for 45 min, your writing section (response to an ethical dilemma) for another 45 min, a break for lunch (which was cut short to about 45 min instead of an hour), a quick tour of the building, a session about getting the required laptop, your 30-min interview with a student and faculty member, the group situational exercise where you'll have to present for about 2 minutes then undergo fairly rigorous questioning, questioning pharmacy students, and FINALLY the wrap up where they talk about immunization, finaid, and the timeline. It's as long as that. SEVEN hours so be prepared." Report Response
