What are your general comments?

"The day started out with a welcome speech from an administrative person, then we wrote the essay (they called it the writing exercise). This was followed by several very longwinded presentations on school life, financial aid, housing, the dean talked about how we should think about whether our values matched those of the school, and there was a student panel of P1 students to answer any questions. Most of the information given in the presentation are irrevelant unless you're actually accepted. We were split into groups of about 10 or 15 and taken to a classroom where a faculty member and student had each of us introduce ourselves, answer questions about why we chose pharmacy and why Midwestern, and ask them any questions we might have. An optional tour was given by 2 students and the day ended with lunch. This wasn't really an interview. They called it a mandatory candidate visit, where the most important thing was for us to write the essay. The point of the visit is for them to get to know you better and for you to see the school."
