What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"What extracurricular activities are you involved in? We have limited space for the pharmacy class, why should we pick you?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

What was the most difficult question?

"None really." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"The graduate and professional level students are highly diverse, even though a glance at the school will make you think everyone's African American. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The pharmacy school is in a really run down building. The facilities are quite old, but it's understandable because Howard is an old school with a very long history." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was in my heels for about 4-5 hours and it was really painful. I wish someone had told me that I can wear tennis shoes, then change into heels when I got to the school or something." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I signed up at the pharmacy office and handed them my supplemental application, money order, and official transcripts. It was a really warm day (80F) and very humid, and the AC didn't work properly so whlie we were testing (25-minute essay and 25-minute math quiz), everyone was sweating like a pigs. There was a lot of delay before the testing, so we ended up having very little time to tour the school, so we basically toured the different floors of the pharmacy building (took only about 10 minutes). The tour was lead by a 4th year student. After touring the building, we had only 5 minutes left to get to our designated interview spots. She accomodated for those who needed to fly out of DC later that afternoon by placing those interviewees to the earlier interview spots. I interviewed with Dr. Scott, who was incredibly sweet. The entire interview was very much like a conversation. He sometimes went off tangent to talk about different schools in California and the winery (I'm from California). He was really impressed that I had a lot of questions for him at the end, so really study the school and their curriculum." Report Response
