What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was so nice and seemed to really want to get to know you. It's really like a big family there and they make you feel at home even if you've never been to the campus or town before." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish we were able to tour the whole campus. If you want to see the whole campus, make sure to schedule a campus tour with Wingate for the day of your interview because you only get to see the Pharmacy building while there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It's a Baptist school and there is a strict dress code (business casual) which means you cannot even wear jeans to class. Also, they are obsessed with group work so don't apply there if you are overly shy and only like to study alone (they will ask about that in both the individual interview and group presentation). There are only about 12 other students there that day to interview (I thought there would be more than that) and everyone has their own schedule for the day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I got there about 20 minutes early which gave me time to sign in, look through the folder that they give you, and observe current pharmacy students. Then, the Dean speaks for an hour about the program and why it is set up the way that it is. Afterwards, I went straight to my interview and that lasted 20 minutes, which was 10 minutes shorter than scheduled, but it was relatively laid back and comfortable. Then, I had a 30 minute break which gave me time to meet the people who was going to be in the group project/presentation with me. Then, we (me and 4 others) went to a conference room and were given 30 minutes alone to agree on an answer to an "ethical" question related to pharmacy and 15 mins to present it to a faculty and an additional 15 mins to answer questions the faculty will ask. Then, we went on a tour of the building with a current student and that lasted about an hour. So, if you add up the time spent for each thing, it will most likely go over the 3 hours that they tell you it will take." Report Response
