What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING. From the moment I walked into the building, I was approached with one of my counselors. She gave me an introduction of how the interview process would go and you will be directed to go into a room with pharmacy students. You would be given the chance to mingle and ask any questions about the program. When I came, there were many P1 students so I didn't ask any residencies questions. Either way, you'll be able to meet current students. One impressive thing about UH COP interview process is that they want you to like their school. As in, they're trying to interview you, but they want you to make sure that UH is the school for you as well. They welcome any type of questions and are very responsive to your needs. Back to the interview, I had my one-on-one first. My interviewer had two other students in the room, but they didn't ask any questions. I was nervous at first since there were 3 pairs of eyes staring at me, but they were quiet so I started to ease up. Overall, my interviewer did a great job with getting to know me. As compared to all the other schools I went on an interview with this year, UH is the school that actually got to know me which is rare even though I went to 3 interviews before UH. My group interview was extremely fun. I love my teammates and I hope many of them got in. They were cooperative and enjoyable. Within the 30 minutes, I actually got to see a little bit of their personalities and started to crack jokes in the end. The day overall was impressive and thank goodness UH accepted me. I would be very disappointed if they didn't." Report Response
