What impressed you positively?

"School is extremely professional. The admissions office is probably the quickest to respond to any questions/concerns you have. Upon acceptance, you have till May to respond yes or no, most schools have a two week deadline to respond. Also only a 200 dollar desposit. Doesn't break the bank before any loans come in. Also not a lot of instate students. It's about 50-50, and the students swear its worth the out of state tuition to go there." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"School is pretty small. The tour couldn't show us the labs because they had classes going on. The tour showed us only three classrooms, which apparently was all there was." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

No Response

What are your general comments?

"Questions were very generic. They just wanted to see why you were interested in pharmacy. Michigan is more of a research intensive institution. They even require a research project during the P4 year. During the interview, the faculty moved from class to class, while you stayed in the same room. This was awesome because you had no chance of getting lost. Or rushing to your next interview. Even though it was open file, interview was never gruelling. My grades were never really brought up. It was just a conversation. Two of the faculty took notes, the other two didn't. I felt really comfortable after the interview. Interview was from about 11:30 to 2. Student panel discussion from 2-4. Student panel was a little disorganized, but it was nice. They answered all of our questions. The interview process is apparently new to UMich but overall, I think it was great. Most importantly they will notify you of their decision in just two or three business days. NO SCHOOL DOES THAT?!!?" Report Response
