What are your general comments?

"For the most part, the experience was great. Although, I had a hard time finding the pharmacy school until someone told me that it was where the emergency center is. Once I found it, the building is old but this is where other health professions have their classes. I talked to Dean Ridgway who was extremely nice and gave me the low down on the interview process and how the acceptance process is done. I also talked to a first and third year student and they were telling me about the school. I also toured their labs and their "mock" pharmacy which was extremely cool. All in all, I was very impressed with what they had to offer." Report Response
