What impressed you positively?

"NONE! This interview was completely pointless. I think they spent more time printing out the interview packets than actually having a quality interview with the applicants. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview process was pointless and the tour was a waste of time, especially for a school that prides itself on it's program and it's name. The interview was a complete waste of time. The school decided to interview everyone who applied, probably to eliminate applicants who did not want to travel to the interview. They only asked 2 questions, one was suppose to be ethical and one situational. The interviewers were not even staff members, they were pharmacist from around the state volunteering their time. It just seemed like the school didn't want to know ME, they didn't even ask anything relevent to who I was or why I would be a good or bad applicant to their program." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That everything you told them about yourself and the small talk you were doing wasn't going to be considered into the interview. They were there to ask you 2 questions and they were going to rank you from 1-5 based only on those 2 questions. Your interview was a number with a few notes given to the committe. The interview was mandatory even though your grades could have guaranteed that you would have never gotten into the school. I really don't understand that approach, but I am glad that I didn't travel far to get to the interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"A waste of time. I don't understand why they just did not do phone interviews. Also, I had no idea what they were ranking the interview on since they didn't care to know anything about me or what I've done or how I could have contribute to their school or even why I wanted to go to pharmacy school."
