What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They do not have any rotation sites set up in my state at the moment. However, I was told that I would be able to set it up on my own by contacting local hospitals in my home state so that I would be able to come home and do my rotations during the 3rd year. It's not a big deal and I don't mind forwarding information/speaking to local pharmacy directors but I didn't realize that this could be a possible limitation." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview day ran from 7:45 am until 2:30 pm, so be prepared for a pretty long day. In the morning while we waited to find out our schedules for the day (they split us into 4 groups), we had a chance to speak with 3 current pharmacy students. My group had the tour first, the group interview, and then the financial presentation. Lunch was around noon and the twelve of us ate lunch with the same 3 pharmacy students we had a chance to speak to earlier. It was great hearing first-hand from the students themselves. Ask lots of questions-- this is your time to find out what you want to know!" Report Response
