What impressed you positively?

"how organized the day was, how structured the presentations were, how enthusiastic staff, professors and students are, that we were broken into groups and directed to different talks, how we were given plenty of chances to ask questions and how eagerly they wanted to respond with questions, how much they emphasized being well rounded and not just a pharmacist , how we got to see a student panel and ask real questions in a small setting, how the technology division is strongly supported at the program, that it is a well established program with a lot of faculty simply geared just for the pharmacy school, they actually schedule courses/structure to allow students the time to work/intern, there is a job fair to help people get off during 4th year, you do get input from faculty about rotation sites" Report Response

"how long the whole day was and that the interview was much later into the day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how there would be absolutely no food (they do give snacks and water) but no lunch time and lots of walking and talking. how really laid back it was throughout the day. That even though 5 hours does not sound like a lot, it is." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Here is a general break down: You mingle in the atrium a bit with fellow interviewees. You are checked in with a packet complete with your itinerary for the day. You are given a presentation by several professors/staff on the school. You do take photos of yourself for the school. There is a tour of certain parts of the school like the class where you will take most of your lectures. There are interviews that are supposedly closed file. You are given a presentation on the interprofessional/spiritual component to the school. You are also given presentations on technology and the extracurricular/service activities offered by the school. You are also given a chance to sit in a room with a panel of pharmacy students and ask questions without the presence of faculty present. Tip, it is a long day. Be prepared to walk a lot, talk a lot, and bring something that you can eat and snack on throughout the day. We did not go outside, but bring a coat for the weather in case the weather is better for your visit and you walk outside. You don't need to bring anything in terms of paper, because they give that packet and a mini bag to you. Bring a pen to write, food, maybe even coffee and some questions to ask the students. Really unique school and will support students in transition to pharmacy school. I loved the fact that they do their best to make sure you understand all aspects of Creighton pharmacy, because you are spending 4 years there. They do treat you better and with more care than other schools." Report Response
