"There is absolutely nothing to do around campus (unless you have a car). I got there two hours early (I'm from out of state) and there was no starbucks or anything to just hang for an hour or two." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There was a writing portion (30 minutes) -- my question was to write about a decision I made in the past year and if I were given the same situation would I make the same decision again and why. Then it was off to the group interview (1 faculty, 1 current student, and 4-5 other applicants) -- they asked really general questions and half the time the student talked about her experience. Next I had the faculty interview -- he didn't have a list of questions to ask me. He asked me random questions like, "so you're from Seattle... how's the weather?" But he did ask me why I wanted to go to UMB and why I wanted to be a pharmacist. Next I had the student interview. Overall it was VERY relaxing. :) Word of advice: eat before you go... the whole interview is like 4 hours long. I was SUPER hungry by the time it ended." Report Response
