What impressed you positively?

"The day was somewhat organized (despite extensive down time each group had). You can tell they put an effort in trying to organize the day. They even provided breakfast and refreshments while we waited. Also, the staff, faculty, and students I met were nice. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The hot weather and how everything was barren. I know Arizona gets hot but it was end of March and already 86 degrees out. The school is still developing but so far all you see is dry land, some buildings, and more dry land. Also, the fitness center is a room that can hold about 4 people max." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it was very dry and all you see are cacti and brown shrubs. I'm not bashing the place but coming from southern california, I need/want moisture and more colors." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone's comments have been right on the dot. We are supposed to be there by 7:45am but things do not start until 8:30. Luckily, my group was the first to interview, while other groups either went on a tour or waited around for an hour. Whichever group you were in, it was guaranteed you had at least one whole hour to sit and chit chat or wait anxiously. The tour was nice, we even got to see the clinic on the other side of the street. The pharmacy department in that clinic, however, seemed quite small. The cafeteria is only open for lunch. So those who live on campus would still have to take care of breakfast and dinner. That would be a troublesome burden for someone like me who does not cook. Though there were some gaps in between, they wrapped things up early and we were done by 2pm instead of 2:30. I interviewed on Friday and by Wednesday of the following week found out I was accepted. I guess it is because mine was the last interview date." Report Response
