What impressed you positively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I'm glad I didn't think they were my top choice at first, otherwise I would have been extremely more nervous at this interview. The interviews were first and then you learned about the program after you got that out of the way. And thats where I fell in love with the school. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was very nice. I arrived at 8:30am, they took my picture, and we mingled with faculty and other interviewees until about 9am. Then we went to our first interview, one-on-one with either a faculty member or a practicing pharmacist. The interview was relaxed. They took little notes, they weren't writing down everything you said. At 9:30 you move immediately to your next one-on-one interview with a student. At 10 there is a tour, then the dean of academic affairs talks about tuition and steps to take after being accepted, followed by lunch (Chick-fil-A), and a closing with the dean, a couple of other members of staff, and 4 students to answer any questions. Guests are allowed! I got accepted a week later. " Report Response
