What are your general comments?

"GREAT GREAT GREAT. Very impressed with the school overall and especially their brand new facilities. There were about 30 students at the interview. Dr. Tong talked for about 30 minutes then about 15 students came in and introduced themselves, as did the applicants. Every two applicants were paired with one current pharmacy student. The pharmacy student was basically each applicant's director for the afternoon. Each student was given a schedule listing the interview, essay, meet the faculty and tour. Luckily I was able to get the interview and essay out of the way first so that I could relax the rest of the afternoon. Meet the faculty was an interesting part of the day, because it allowed the applicants to see what they do for the school and how enthusiastic they all were about what they do. The day ended with snacks and a survey. I was somewhat nervous for the interview and I expected the day to drag on but surprisingly it flew by..." Report Response
