What are your general comments?

"My interview was on a Saturday morning, and they had bagels and juice for us in the meeting room, and each of us briefly described ourselves. We then had a relaxed discussion of what OSU was like, the classes, and the organizations that students were in. We also met with a member of the admissions staff to make sure our file was complete and all prerequisites had been completed. Then each of us went back individually for our personal interview with a member of the staff and an OSU pharmacy graduate. The interview was very relaxed and comfortable, not too many surprise questions...they really just want to know what you are like, make sure that you are human, and if they feel you can handle their program. Their admissions committee meets in the following week and the people that interview you will give their recommendation and speak on your behalf. Then they will call or email you within a week letting you know their decision." Report Response
