What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There are only a dozen or so slots for out of staters. ISU received over 400 applications for fall 2010, interviewed approx. 130 and accepted 70 total students. Therefore, in order to get accepted as an out of stater you need an over-the-top GPA including prereq. GPA along with strong recommendations, resume, and interview score." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If you are invited to an interview, prepare for a long day! Although the interview process is well organized and lasts only half a day, you can expect an open file interview, a student group interview, an ethical question group discussion while being observed by ISU pharm students & faculty admissions personnel, and lastly writing an essay about the ethical question posed to your group. It was a grueling process. I'm not sure if it was because this was only my second interview that I was so nervous or if it was the newness of what to expect for the interview, but I was way nervous throughout the day."
