What are your general comments?

"Initially, I didn't think much of Touro, but after the interview - I am very impressed. The staff and professors were so knowledgeable, considerate, and understanding. During the interview day, different professors sat with us and expressed their devotion in teaching and their dedication towards the students. As for the interview, remember that it's important to shine, but also to share since you are interviewing with other applicants. Think before you speak - when I say think, I mean really draw from your heart, your passion for pharmacy and express them. Touro is definitely an amazing school, but I'm forgoing the hefty deposit. Good luck! -mvpharm" Report Response
