What are your general comments?

"Thirty minutes for a writing sample (choose one from a list of general topics, if you want to prep for this, pondering some current issues and significant life experiences can help, but nothing difficult to answer), then your interview with a faculty member, a tour (the tour may come before the interview depending on when you are scheduled), and finally a brief meeting with an Admissions Director to go over anything important about your application and for extra questions. Have an idea of what to say for any sort of blemish big or small on your application, just so you're not caught off-guard. They don't care if you have experience or not: just be convincing (knowledgeable and enthusiastic) that pharmacy and MCPHS is something you want. Think of questions for them, too, and don't be shy about asking them during the interview. Really, everything you need to know about the interview you can find right here. Great experience and time goes by in a flash :)" Report Response
