What are your general comments?

"Shortened version of the agenda given to me: 9:00AM-9:05AM Candidates convene in conferenece room (total of 10). 9:05AM-9:50AM 45 minute writing sample. 9:50AM-10:10AM Presentation on how to obtain financial aid. 10:10AM-10:15AM Break. 10:15AM-11:00AM Meet with the Dean of the College of Pharmacy (atmosphere was more like an icebreaker I guess). 11:00AM-12:00PM Interview (Dr. Ip, Dr. Bartlett, and Diane for my group) 12:00PM-1:00PM Campus tour. 1:00PM-1:30PM Kosher lunch. I honestly think I didn't do very well. I couldn't answer the question I listed as most difficult. My responses to the other questions asked to me weren't that lenghty and the interview did not seem like a conversation (unlike with other people in the room with me). Be sure to know (forwards and backwards) what you put down on the supplemental application. Be polite to the other people getting interviewed and say what you need to say instead of rambling on.
