What impressed you positively?

"The interview was a very nice conversation with some questions tossed in to guide the conversation. Very relaxed for me, comfortable, laid back Austin-style." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Every question they asked me has been listed on this site. No surprises. I was hoping for something more, something extra. It seemed anticlimactic. Also, most of the rooms and lecture halls were locked for our tour so we resorted to pressing our noses against the windows to try and see into rooms. I am curious why everything was locked up when tours were planned all day. Not much of a tour in that respect. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The traffic problem. The university was hosting two or three other huge events on campus. (Texas Relays for one and something called 40 acres??) Getting onto campus was a headache. Parking was a nightmare, and that is probably an understatement. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I arrived a hour before my interview and I am very glad I did. I had the opportunity to chat with current P1, P2, and P3 students in the lounge. They were all extremely helpful and kind. We talked about UT's curriculum, survival tips for the first year, and the incredible selection of electives. That hour with current students solidified UT as my top choice. What an amazing program! The interviewers only had two essays: Why pharmacy? and Why UT? Other than those essays, it was a closed file. Everything about the experience was laid back. Without exception, everyone was professional and welcoming. The slide show was okay~not as bad as I had anticipated! " Report Response
