What impressed you positively?

"The faculty, students, staff were all very welcoming. Very warm. The current pharmacy students also seem very down-to-earth, humble, and honest. I think whats different about this school is that theres no gung-ho crazy fanatical school pride kinda thing. Whether thats a good thing or a bad thing I guess depends on you." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The whole interview process was really long. 7:15 am to like 1 am. it got pretty tiring towards the end." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had visited the school ahead of time. I always heard of Western as a new school, and therefore was considering Western to be a "backup" school than a first choice school. When I actually got there and talked to the teachers and students there, my mind was changed and I really think they changed my mind about the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was very relaxing. I was kind of nervous because I had the last interview group of the day, and the more I had to wait the more I got nervous. I saw other people coming back from the their interviews with smiles on their faces, and that made me even more nervous. All in all, though, the faculty and student interviewer try to be really friendly so that you can be comfortable in being yourself and to come up with good answers. All the questions they ask are on the SDN website, so definitely look up what kind of stuff they ask on here. Be prepared to answer the questions, but I would say, don't sound rehearsed. Just think of bullet points you want to bring up. All in all, I didn't think I did that well on the interview because I was nervous and also, during the interview, it seemed like they did more talking than I did. But just try to be yourself. And you never know what will happen, cuz I didn't expect anything after the interview and I got accepted." Report Response
