What are your general comments?

"OK, forget all this low stress stuff from last year. They turned it up a notch this year. The questions were more indepth. I had Vanessa (admissions lady) interview me. She is actually apart of the admissions committee!! So all those times you email her prior to your visit, please know you're talking to the adcom indirectly! Since she knew my application inside and out from the admissions process, she asked me very specific questions. It was like an open-file interview. But it wasn't so bad because I practiced interviewing before. It got pretty stressful at first but they were both very nice. The pharmacist brought her own experience and asked for my opinion on that. " Report Response
