What impressed you positively?

"The campus is really beautiful, probably one of the most beautiful that I have ever seen. The new pharmacy building is currently under construction and will be finished in fall 2010." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was upsetting to have prepared so much for the interview only to be stumped by one question, which was the only question that I was asked during the 20 minutes that I was interviewed. Because I was only asked one question, I didn't have the opportunity to tell the interviewer why I'm so passionate about pharmacy, why I wanted to go to Belmont, what my experiences have been so far in pharmacy, and what I wanted to do with my Pharm.D. Therefore, since I didn't have an outlet to answer any other questions, I felt like I didn't have a fair opportunity to show the interviewer who I really am as a person, and I strongly feel that that was what cost me the acceptance. I'm not saying all of this to be bitter, but I just want other candidates to be prepared in case they are interviewed by the same guy and is asked the same question. None of the other candidates were asked that same question (in fact, they all were asked several of the typical questions that you'd expect in a professional interview setting)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To bring an umbrella. Although it rarely snows in Nashville, it sure does rain quite a bit in the winter." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Although the program is unaccredited, it still seems like it has a lot of potential to be great. Also, if you plan on staying at a hotel, make sure to stay at the Hutton. If you book your flight and hotel through Orbitz, you can actually get a pretty sweet deal." Report Response
