What impressed you negatively?

"A previous poster had mentioned how they always deferred to how impressive their med school program was which is kind of true. I over heard some UCSD pharm student say that if you get your Pharm. D. here you're basically "like a doctor" because you take the same classes (although he failed to mention that its only CERTAIN types of classes) as the M.D. students. When I heard the comment, I was wondering how the student thought Pharm D.=M.D.? Eh?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviwers were really nice. Both the faculty and the student interviewed me at the same time. Although, it was the faculty member talking 90% of the time. LOL. I got to San Diego a couple of days before the interview so I had time to tour the campus and the city. Needless to say, the campus is awesome and I think UCSD will be program that will eventually compete with UCSF in the near future. So accept me PLEASE!!! Man, I'm gonna have a hard time studying in UCSD if I get accepted, there is so many things to do there. " Report Response
