What are your general comments?

"Overall it went well. Its 3 hours, but it goes by really quickly. There is a 15 min writing prompt, choose which question you wish to address - "Define professionalism and how it applies to your life," "What would you do if you caught a friend cheating" When you get there all interviewees are put in a room, then Dr. Bartling and Jordana come in and speak. You go around the table and introduce yourselves. Then after they tell you about the school, you mingle with the others while you wait for a student to come take you on a group tour of 3 or 4. After the tour, you have an interview with a student, then go for your writing session. You then wait to be called for your interview with a professor. Its very casual conversation. Just have questions to ask them to show your interest in the school as well as in pharmacy." Report Response
