What impressed you negatively?

"The pharm school is not just limited to only 1 bldg...it's not even the whole bldg!! It's only 2 floors within that bldg. You take all your classes in ONE room, depending on your year...ex: first yrs have their own classroom and stay in there the whole day, then they change to another room as 2nd yrs, etc." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"North Philly is one scary place. Desolated, run-down, it was creepy just walking down the street (and it was in broad daylight, on a clear day). The main campus is 2+ miles away, with a lot of sketchy land in between." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I arrived at North Philly very early (7am) because that was the only train I could take. The area freaked me out. The pharm school itself is safe & fine, but outside of those ~3 blocks, the neighborhood is bad. The interview was not bad at all, in fact it was very enjoyable. I was in a group with 2 other applicants and 1 interviewer. It was more of a friendly chat and an interview. We were all polite, so there wasn't any interrupting or hogging of attention. Our interviewer loves pharmacy and was very enthusiastic. The room we were interviewed in is called the "museum room" and contained a lot of old pharm lab stuff, it was pretty cool." Report Response
