What are your general comments?

"Overall, this interview went really well for me. The interviewers are not there to scare you off or anything. They just really want to get to know you and see if you are really serious about pharmacy and about attending their school. Just be yourself. The interview was very conversational and easy-going. Although, it might depend on who you get to interview you. I was lucky and I got both an email and a letter in the mail 2 weeks later saying I got accepted." Report Response
