What are your general comments?

"There are about 20 students per interview date. Each student gets their own folder with thier own schedule. First, everyone goes into one of the classrooms where Dean Supernaw talks to us for about an hour. He asks everyone their name, where their from, and where they completed their pre-pharm work. Most the things he talks about are on the Wingate pharmacy website. He is very personable and encourages everyone to asks many questions about the program. Next, according to your number, you will either participate in a group project/presentation, have a break, or go on the tour. There 11 people in my group for the group project/presentation. Basically, your group has 30 minutes to read, talk, compromise, etc. about an ethical situation. Then Dr. Ford comes in and your group discusses your work. She then asks questions which anyone has the opportunity to answer and contribute their thoughts. This lasts another 30 minutes. The tour is guided by two P3 students who are very helpful. They will answer any kind of question you have. They assure everyone that they have nothing to do with the admissions process, so they encourage many questions about anything. After the tour, 3 students at a time go up to the interview rooms. Each student gets their own room where 2 faculty members are there waiting. They are you general questions, like above. They really want to know about you. They want to know your strengths and weaknesses, how well you can handle a rigorous course load, how you feel about a dress code, what you do to relieve stress, etc. The whole day everyone apart of Wingate tries their best to make you comfortable, so they get the "real" you by the time the interview comes. They want to make sure you are a good fit for their school and they are a good fit for you. Also, I did not fill in the most difficult question section as I thought the questions were the standard that you would be asked at any pharmacy school. I gave the school a 6/10 and 5/10 for location and cultural life. It is about 40 minutes from Charlotte which is the closest city. The Charlotte area is where most of the hospitals are and where you'll do your rotations. With that said you'll definitely need a car. I heard that they are thinking of moving the school to Matthews which is a lot closer to Charlotte, but they said it's only talk now and wouldn't happen for a couple of years. The campus is suburban so you'll need to travel to Charlotte for the night scene. *Above was just my personal experience. Your schedule for the day may be different than mine above. The interview itself was about 20 minutes for me, but your at the school about 3 hours." Report Response
