What are your general comments?

"It was relatively stress free. Since it was the last interview, it was packed with people. I heard they interviewed 135 people just that day. We were split into 2 groups, one went to the interview and one went on a tour and had time to write the essay. It was a little nerve racking since you only get like 40 minutes and I was not familiar with the topic, but it is not pharmacy related so there is no way to prepare. The interview is very stress free. They just talk to you and do a very good job of making it very conversation like. Just chatting about your reasons for chosing pharmacy and the school and getting to know you. You don't get much time to shine, but it was a good experience" Report Response
