What impressed you negatively?

"There wasn't a tour! I was kinda of upset about this, because I would have liked to look more at the campus and have a formal type of tour. The other thing was that I noticed was that everyone was from U of A!! That was cool, but I felt like the only one applying to other schools, and that WASN'T a U of A student! Surprising more than a negative I guess." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The essay preparation! I couldn't really prepare of course, but many schools have advertised non-science related questions. This one gave a scenario and asked you what you would do in that situation: The Surgeon General has invited you to help plan a way to improve prescription and non-prescription use in senior citizens. What is the elements, goals, and objectives of your plan, and how will you implement it. Or something that effect. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, a very professional, excellent atmosphere. The students interviewing me were awesome guys, nice, I did not have anybody grilling me, or putting me in a touch spot! The Dean and everybody in admissions expect much of you! They were ligth hearted, yet serious and move through the process fast. I had a great time, and until my other interviews, I'm hoping I get in here! " Report Response
