"Read SDN, Wingate's website, Pfizer's pharmacy career guide." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The curriculum has some great components from medical school curricula like problem-based learning, pharmacy experience development from day one. Also, the class size is smaller (about 70 students) and the instructors are mainly there to teach instead of teaching and doing research. Lastly, I interviewed on a school day and I was impressed by the high interaction and support between current Wingate students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The pharmacy building itself is REALLY small compared to the other pharmacy schools I've visited. This has mostly to do with the fact that Wingate is a small private school in a very small community. Though Wingate is less than an hour away from Charlotte, the area the school is located is somewhat isolated. Coming from a state university with a large enrollment and a relatively large residential population, I'm not used to that." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew that Wingate had a different type of curriculum, but I didn't know the full extent. I wished I did more research so that I could ask more questions about the program. Dean Supernaw comes from many institutions with a medical school, so I really wanted to ask him more questions. Also, the interview process takes more than the three hours that their admissions office reports where most people didn't get out until 1:30. So, be prepared for that if you are flying into Wingate." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started out with an introduction of the school by Dean Supernaw, who really wanted the students to ask questions about the program that is novel and recently new. After that, the interviewees and I split up into groups based on an assigned numbers and participated in activities. For me, I took part in a group project involving some pharmacy scenario. There's a Wingate representative in the room evaluating our small group skills after the interviewees' deliberations. I don't know how Wingate assesses our small group skills given that there wasn't a representative in the room during the process itself. Afterwards, I took a tour of the building and then I interviewed with two faculty." Report Response
