What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Shorten the Interview process? maybe the 1 hour asking financial and students questions...." More from this Member | Report Response

"before interview, interviewer inform me that they will stress me with the questions . Most of the questions center around how to "chose a basketball team & why you hate the other team so much?" has nothing to do with pharmacy. My friends did interview at the same time did not received the same questions, so it seem the school is not consistence with the questions so it up to the interview. ALso, the interviewer also asked me if I have stress in my family? -it none of your business & does not relate to pharmacy. SO as you can see I did not have nice day."

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
