What impressed you positively?

"Nice faculty/staff. Good facilities from what I was able to see..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was extremely helpful and very friendly. Even though the school is still under construction, I was very impressed by all of the up-to-date facilities and state of the art technology in place." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My professor interviewer seemed extremely uninterested." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were times during the process that felt a little unorganized. You are basically running all over the different buildings finding out where you're supposed to be. They gave us a map though, which was nice. There were times when I was just waiting alone in a room just waiting for the rest of the interviewers to be done." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviews was oddly casual" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviewers was a little too lax. She didn't ask me questions that pertained to getting to know me, so I left the interview completely unsure of what she would have to say about me at the committee review." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall day was okay, but very disappointed that none of the students came and talked to us. We had a video tour, which makes it seem like they have something to hide." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had 2 separate interview times with 2 different faculty members. One of them talked more about pharmacy and its importance. The other one just got to know me as a person (my family, my education, etc.). They were really nice though and made me feel welcomed. The whole interview process was fairly well-structured and professional given that this is only their second time. This is the only school that I applied to that wasn't accredited and honestly the things they said kind of scared me. First of all, they are only in pre-candidate stage. Yes I know that's just part of the process of becoming accredited, but I kept thinking... what if it doesn't get accredited on time like UCSD (if at all). They also said they were still in the process of finding faculty. Again just another normal part of the process, but what if they didn't find enough? What if they don't have enough rotation sites, etc. But honestly, I am very paranoid and these things just set off my paranoia alarm. UNT COP is part of the UNTHSC which is very well respected all throughout Texas with years and years of experience in other health-related fields. This means they have the technology, the reputation, and probably the money to bring this program to full accreditation in no time. So unless you're a paranoid freak like me, everything seems like it's going to be fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"Enjoyable experience, nothing too stressful" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a good experience. Everyone on staff there was extremely helpful and friendly and I didn't feel like I was under immense pressure to impress." More from this Member | Report Response
