What are your general comments?

"You start out seated in a room with all of the applicants. Everyone introduces themselves, and then you listen to info about the campus/pharmacy program for about an hour. After that, you go on a tour with a student for a half hour. When you return, the group is divided into three groups. One group goes to a candidate interview (one-on-one, closed file), one group mingles with the admissions staff (open). The last group does an ineterview with faculty/alumn (one-on-one, closed file). Then you rotate, 1/2 hour each. Dont Stress! Honestly, these people are very freindly and pleasant. Just be yourself let them get to know you. They no longer do the written portion as of this year.
