"Communication was easy at MT because their pharm secretary, Erika, does a very good job." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"For out of staters the cheapest roundtrip flight to the nearest airport in Missoula was approx. $650! I ended up driving instead, but the out of stater must also consider the odds of being accepted.
