What are your general comments?

"I arrived about an hour and a half early and there were already about 4 students waiting for the interview to begin. At the start of the interview all of the interviewees were seated around a large conference table and received a quick orientation on the school, admissions criteria, the area, and financial aid. After about an hour all of the students were split and sent on a tour with different Pharm. students. After the tour each student rotated between a 15 minute interview with a Pharm. student, 15 minute writing assignment, 30 minute informal conversation, and 30 minutes interview with a professor. I was amazed at how quickly the interview went, so make sure you talk yourself up as much as you can because there's not a lot of time." Report Response
