There is an awful lot of construction going on here, and it is nice to see the school so committed to improving the campus. Also, I really liked the surrounding area. Aurora is nice if you ask me, and it is very close to Denver and not too far from the maountains. I think it only gets a bad rap because of ignorant people who fear the large hispanic population in the area." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus! The area of town isn't the safest to settle into, but it's not nearly as "bad" as people think! The area is up-and-coming with two brand-new hospitals, five (four?) different health professions campuses, research facilities, and a ton of construction bordering the campus area. The area of town is run down, but it's going to be really nice in a few years. The campus is so new, and gives you ample room and opportunity to study in nice areas. Everything you need is there, and the campus is close to highway access (which they're improving with the new traffic in the area). The Denver area is still close, and has a ton of hospitals and areas to do rotations and experience. The large campus gives room to interact with many other types of health profession students, which is something you'll have to do in your careers!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was extremely uncomfortable! She made me feel so awkward, which escalated my nervousness. She would ask me a question and after I finished with my answer, she kept staring at me without saying anything. I couldn't tell if I should keep talking because my answer wasn't good enough or something. After it was clear I was finished, she would then say Ok! and move on to the next question. No input or any kind of recognition that she even took in anything that I said. I couldn't wait to leave the interview because it felt so awkward. Also, the area is shadyyyyyyyy! I was walking alone to get some food at 8pm across the street from my hotel and some stranger woman pulls up next to me and asks if I need a ride! She was very persistent about it, too! So either she really wanted to kidnap me or she was a good Samaritan who was really really concern for my well being 0_0 Ultimately, not a very good impression of the city."

"The interviewer (Laura Thompson), seemed extremely nervous and fidgeted quite a lot, which made me feel less comfortable than I would have liked. Also, when she asked what made me stand out as an applicant, she made a backhanded comment on my pinstriped suit, which happens to be the only suit I have because I cannot afford another. I feel that any jabs of this kind are out of line. Imagine if I had commented on her dress! Finally, she seemed very unprepared for the questions I asked, and became very flustered after asking my first. Overall, the interviewer seemed very unprepared and unprofessional, and I was very disappointed afterwards, which was unfortunate because the rest of the day had made a very good impression on me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The neighborhood outside of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The 4th year student that acted as our tour guide was very cynical, pessimistic and rather discouraging. The campus is very large and very windy which made me wonder how much time is spent walking between buildings especially in bad weather. I wanted to see one of the labs. The tour guide showed us every lecture hall on campus, but we didn't get to see one lab. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How new the program really was. The PharmD has only really been an option for a few years; previously, it was a BS with the opportunity to enhance your education further. Because of that, there isn't much opportunity to specialize or earn anything outside of just a PharmD. The students seemed halfway between study overloaded versus completely casual. The school discourages you from working more than 10 hours a week, and the students on the tour continued to emphasize the amount of study room and time they commit to the degree. I don't know if this is a reflection of the curriculum /being/ difficult, or the campus assuming their students aren't as prepared for higher education as they should be..."

Also, I found out that they only gave out interviews this year based on GPA because they had such a huge number of applicants. I thought that was a little ridiculous seeing as that half of the candidates there only had a 2-year degree. Of course someone who only took classes for 2 years will have a better GPA than someone with a bachelor's." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, I felt well informed and prepared going into the interview. However, they ask about the curriculum in your essay, and they want to know about specific courses. I looked through the curriculum prior to the interview, but focused more on the general aspects of it. Pick a course you like, know it inside and out, and be prepared to talk about it," More from this Member | Report Response

Cons: essay proctor was mean, they really try to scare you with the whole "bad" area thing, they threaten you about making it to school no matter what weather conditions are out there. I would say that the pros definitely outweigh the cons." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring a writing utensil, you will need it. If you have a flight after the interview, they do have room for you to store your luggage. Prepare lots of questions to ask throughout the day! I ran out of questions to ask at the end and the faculty member kind of gave me a disapproving look! Wear comfortable shoes for the tour.. they do allow you to change them."

There are many opportunities throughout the day to talk to faculty and students!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My anxiety level decreased as the day went on because of talking with other candidates. The essay section was easy and there was a lot of down time before my interview slot. There were about 10-12 questions total but the interviewers really tried to make me feel comfortable. The group activity was interesting!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was friendly and accommodating. It was a fairly long day with the tour, information session, actual interview and group activity. The campus is really nice and has interesting art pieces. The admin staff provided a place for candidates to put suitcases and other items during the tour. The group exercise was the last part of the day and it was fun. " More from this Member | Report Response

"There isn't a lot of information given out during the interview, I found out... come in with a lot of questions, but be prepared for the staff to /not/ be prepared to answer them. The campus seems like a really nice place to study for an extended period... not competitive, relaxed, no dress code (except one day a week if that, but Denver dress standards are very lax anyway). Everyone seems to genuinely want everyone to succeed. Lots of hard workers in Denver... hard work, and hard play. There is a lot of interesting culture in Denver once you know where to find it. The day was scheduled with an hour tour with students, break for lunch, brief information session on the campus and financial aid, 1/2-pg-essay/question-answer on an article, a 20-minute interview with a student and faculty member, and an observed group exercise where you have to communicate and compromise values between 4 or so others."

"Pretty easy interview. Essay test followed by interview followed by group project. Both interviewers were encouraging and it was very conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I had a favorable impression of the facilities and faculty. It did seem to me that the faculty was getting a little burned out on interviewing (I believe I was in one of the last interview groups). The students spoke very favorably about the new facilities and seemed to engage with the faculty in a positive way." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a presentation about the program, and then a Finaid presentation followed by the short quiz and essay. After that were the interview sessions, which were staggered. After everyone had interviewed, the group exercise was held. I only had one interviewer (faculty member), but some other interviewees had two (faculty + student). It seemed as though having two interviewers made for a more difficult interview, so I was glad I only had the one. Also, during the waiting period a few current students went around and answered any questions people had." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was so nervous the entire time. I never felt at ease. It was horrifying!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was incredibly nervous when I arrived. Everybody I encountered was incredibly welcoming and it really helped put me at ease. By the time I finished the essay/quantitative test, I was no longer as nervous. The hallways of the school had groups of students talking and being very social. The interview got me really excited about starting pharmacy school." More from this Member | Report Response

"In the morning they quickly discussed financial aid and their curriculum. Then we went to take a short test on easy biology, math and writing. We were given an article and asked questions about it. Then we either relaxed or went to our interviews with a professor and 3rd year student. Last we did a group exercise. The group exercise was not stressful and actually was kind of fun."

"Info session, followed by a short exam, which consisted of ten math questions, mainly simple conversions, ten multiple-choice biology ?'s(super-easy ones), and a short one-page written essay on a newspaper article. There was than an interview with one faculty member and one student. Each applicant was asked the same ?'s, but not by the same people. The last activity was a group communication assessment, which consisted of 6-7 applicants working together to rank ten given qualities that a pharmacist should have in order of importance." More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive. The group exercise consisted of rank ordering a list of things via group concensous. I think it was important to take charge but also work as a team member. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They asked basic q's that got to know you as a person. they didnt ask any q's that were like "why you want to be a pharmacist, etc." there's a short math exercise, which is basically moving decimal places. there was also a short article to read and answer some easy q's about. there was also a group discussion where you have to rank qualites in a pharmacist and have a concensus w/in the group. its just meant to see how you interact with other. total time of interview: 4hrs. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was very friendly. The financial aid presentation and information about the school was a joke and not very helpful. Not many students there to interact with." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"None" More from this Member | Report Response

"No suggestions. They have been quite helpful and friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Try to put the application materials online and have the ability to accept/decline offer online as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Do not yell at the applicants for not bringing their own writing utensil because it was stated in the e-mail. I looked through all my e-mails and it was never mentioned. Continue to providing lodging and housing information." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions office should work on communicating with the applicants. I was told in my interview offer email that there would only be one interviewer, and they surprised us by adding a community pharmacist to the interview. There was also a major typo on my itinerary that nearly caused me to be late for the interview itself. Additionally, they should consider holding the interviews in a location other than the faculty offices. My interviewer's office was so cramped with all 3 of us inside that I was much too close for comfort to them. You shouldn't be able to smell their lunches on their breath when they speak." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview duration is too long. They should set up slots before hand so people don't have to wait and can leave early" More from this Member | Report Response
