What impressed you negatively?

"There was no formal presentation of the school, it was just sign-in, essay, and out. Also interviewers seemed quite unfriendly and a little demanding.

"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The whole interview experience was okay, but it would have been nice to have a formal presentation of the school before our interviews started and to have the student chat room available earlier in the day. I was interviewed by one pharmacist and one faculty member, not a student, which made me stress out even more, and made the questions even harder." Report Response
