What impressed you positively?

"The people! I can't remember the last time I had such a good time at an interview. The profs were the ones interviewing, not the faculty members. They were so familiar with my file when I came in. I was really surprised but was glad to know that they were interested in me enough to have thoroughly looked it over ahead of time. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go there at first (I went to the Open House and wasn't too impressed), but the interview completely changed my view of the school around." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. They were a little late getting started, but I would hardly say that it left a negative impression." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The parking is so far away from the pharmacy building. It took me 15 minutes to walk to the interview (and being in high heels didn't make it easy either)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"When we came in, they gave us a folder with some info on the school and an interview schedule. There were 7 of us interviewing that day. We all went to a room, and one of the faculty members came and spoke to us for a while about the school and about it being a Seventh Day Adventist institution. Then they had two other speakers: one who spoke on the accredidation process and another on financial aid info. After that, there was a short writing sample on a mundane, non-pharmacy-related topic. They gave us 30 minutes, but most of us finished before hand. Then the first group went and interviewed, while the rest of us talked and took a tour. Then, when the interview came, I was in a small room with two profs who were incredibly nice. Afterwards, we had lunch, which was alright. I'm not a vegetarian, so the meatless foods will have to take some getting used to." Report Response
