What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much of a pleasure my one-on-one faculty interview would be. It felt conversational and relaxed. We chatted for a while about stereotypes and social image, which was fun. I found the student (2 on 1) interviewers somewhat quirky and unresponsive at first but helpful and down to earth when I asked them questions near the end." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school, faculty and students I met impressed me so positively that it is now my top choice for pharmacy school (I'm from out of state and was initially set on staying in my home state). Environment is important to me and this school had the best vibe out of all I interviewed for. I found the faculty and students not only knowledgeable and down to earth, but also engaging and welcoming overall. The pharmacy building is also new and pretty, which is a nice plus. Although I dislike the downtown location and was not prepared to go somewhere so far from my home state, they impressed me so much that I wouldn't pass up the chance to come here if accepted!"
