"Interview was with a faculty member and Oregon pharmacist, but it was conversational and fun. We even laughed and smiled :-D. If you're out of state, take the TriMET. It picks up passengers at PDX and takes you directly to the school and only costs $2.50. Seriously, this will save you tons of money! Try to stay near a TriMET line too, the Townplace Suites was within walking distance to the Orenco Station and they even shuttled us to the interview in their hotel van the next morning."
