What are your general comments?

"The interview was not bad at all. Since this is the first year they have introduced the interview as a part of the admission process, they didn't make it stressful at all. I felt like I was in high school. They give you a breakfast before they introduce their program, so you have time to relax and talk to P2 and P3 students (who were extremely nice), and after an hour, all the interviewers (23 interviewers for 23 candidates) will come on stage (they all were waiting outside the lecture room), then the director of admission introduced one by one so we know who are who. Then they call your name and the interviewer took me to his office, which I found very nice because he came to welcome me instead of waiting for me in his office. After interview him, I interviewed with a P3 student, even though he was evaluating me, it was like more a conversation than an interview. Then we all came back to the big room and we went to a conference room to have a lunch, there were plenty of food there. Then we came back to the room to take our writing essay. The topic was "what a pharmacist should perform for the care of a terminally ill patient" or something like that. After the writing section, we went to the tour, but actually half of the group went."
