What impressed you positively?

"When you arrive there is a bunch of current Pharmacy strudents waiting to talk to you. TALK TO THEM! Dont just sit there to help you. They are really friendly and are there.

What impressed you negatively?

"It has nothing to do with the school but I was just so surprised at how many students had already finished their undergrads. I was wondering if anyone just went to pharmacy school right out of college anymore. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Well it didnt really affect me but I think that you should not get there too early. I didnt know there was going to be interview sessions before and after me. So if you are there too early you get to see all those people cycle through and it will make you nervous and feel overwhelmed. I talked to this guy and he said he had seen three cycles before our interview and he was so nervous it was ridiculous." Report Response
