What are your general comments?

"This was my second interview with them so I knew what to expect, a lot of hypothetical questions. They don't take any time to review your application beforehand and I got the impression they just wanted to push me out the door. I especially thought that when they gave me an opportunity to ask questions and after each one they would ask: is that all? Is that all? I felt like I did the best I could, but I think it's pretty much all decided before you even get there. Sorry to be politically incorrect but if your a women, a minority, or a non-mormon you have excellent chance of getting into this school. They want a high GPA and a PCAT in the 90s. They seem to also prefer people with no pharmacy experience so they can mold you into the research-first pharmacist robots they all are. I don't fit any of this mold-I have 4 years of pharmacy experience, I'm mormon, I'm male, I'm white, so thus I'm screwed. Good luck to you, though. I really did want to go to this school, mostly because it's cheap to utah residents, but it's obviously not in my hand." Report Response
