What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was very short, and the interview invitation said to allow 1 hour. Basically, the entire pharmacy school is located in one building, which is the only thing the student showed us. However, there is a student-faculty center and two libraries located nearby which the student told us about and basically said if you are interested, you can go look at it. I felt this should have been part of the tour, especially since there was plenty of time. This is really a big fault, as the school should be trying to sell itself more." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview was closed file...the interview knew nothing from the each applicants application. I was expecting the interview to be more personal, which is what I have experienced in the past, where specific highlights or faults of you application would be addressed. The interviewer actually told my group the main purpose of the interview was to determine if you actually want to be a pharmacist." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I felt the interview process offered the school very little information to assist in an acceptance decision (I did get in, just got the letter a few days ago), but I had good grades and excellent PCAT scores and don't feel that the interview had any bearing on my acceptance. For those individuals with a poor academic record or below average performance on the PCAT, the interview isn't going to give you an opportunity to address shortcomings. " Report Response
