"Contrary to the negative impression I was given of this school, UOP is actually a wonderful institution. The faculty really seem to care about the students and you can't beat the 3-year curriculum." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first impression was how beautiful the campus was. People give Stockton a bad rap for being small and having nothing to do, but really, how much time will you really spend out & about in Stockton? I loved how nice everyone was.

"the wonderful interviewers (esp this asian girl - shelly? she was cute!), friendly interviewees, and the campus wasnt nearly as bad as i had imagined - actually the new health science building is quite nice. overall, you could tell this school really cares about its students; its more personal. i'm going to another school for location, but i was really impressed by the people and the school and wish i could go to this one for those reasons alone. plus they give you bottled water and cool pens!"

"Stockton :/" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, they did a great job of selling the school. I was really impressed by everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"Stockton. Everything you've heard about it is true. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Stockton is not the best city in the world, but it's not too bad. As in all cities, there are some bad neighborhoods, just stay away and be smart about it. The school itself though is very safe, and nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Stockton. Someone in the group said that they called to order takeout but the restaurant wouldn't deliver to where he was staying in downtown because it was too dangerous. The fact that Stockton is number two behind Oakland in crime rate isn't particularly settling either." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location" More from this Member | Report Response

"1) Buses not prefered, need car 2)can take it both ways, campus is still growing. New additions are: dining/cafeteria with a "bar" at top level. "clubs" in the city. Quiet place, but can be a good studying atmosphere for some. Plazas and grocery stores are more of driving distance." More from this Member | Report Response

"The first years are in this kind of run down lecture hall their first year. Not as snazzy as I expected from UOP. Also, most of the students helping with the interview day were pre-pharm at UOP so I found myself wanting to talk to transfer students to get a sense of why UOP." More from this Member | Report Response

"There doesn't seem to be that much in the surrounding area. Also, I am not much of a fraternity/sorority joining person. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities seem to be a little old, but still, at least they have pretty much everything you'd need as a student." More from this Member | Report Response

"Student interviewer wasn't really excited or interested in the process and I was the first one he saw. The area is really run-down and kinda depressing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The surrounding area" More from this Member | Report Response

"no food was provided..... only some small cookies and water.... it was 4 hours too ... so at least a sandwich or something ....." More from this Member | Report Response

"just the bullcrap and put on your happy face waste of time and money to get to Stockton...only accept a few students of the ones interviewed" More from this Member | Report Response

"the school is okay however, it is somewhat small. the dorms are super nice. the library is very small. the students were not as happy. there are many rude 1st year students. classes were out for them when i had my interview. i tried to make some small chat, but none would really want to talk to me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"monitor (person taking me from place to place) and student interviewer seemed socially inept...very difficult to converse...made the interview more of a Q&A as opposed to a conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"The mall beside the campus sucks. Area around the campus is a little scary and the town overall just felt sad and unfriendly. Almost all the students were Chinese or from some other Asian descent. A little more diversity would have been nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything! 2nd year students, tuition, location, and campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"My faculty interviewer seemed a little bitter about pharmacy, either that or he was just playing devil's advocate during the interview. Either way, it threw me off a little bit. After reading these SDN reviews, I expected to get a really friendly interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"None" More from this Member | Report Response

"The first year pharmacy students have to take classes in a small little hut looking room. The location is in stockton." More from this Member | Report Response

"the area surrounding uop? nothing really about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Without getting in too much detail... Sometimes it's hard to find good help. One of the students was pretty rude to me when I wanted to use the bathroom before the interview. Even though I'm a guy and it only takes me 30 seconds, he claimed that things were simply planned too tightly so I wasn't permitted." More from this Member | Report Response

"the only bad thing about this school is the location. it really is in the middle of nowhere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the ghettoness of the surroundings." More from this Member | Report Response

"taxi drivers and others telling me I'm in an unsafe area" More from this Member | Report Response

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Just remember, stockton isnt the best area in the world but its better than Compton or Inglewood. Its not that bad- this is of course coming from a 6'2" 210 lbs male. Judge it yourself it isnt that bad. Oh yeah, and if you are guy.....brace yourself, females there are not very pretty. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not so great looking campus, not great area." More from this Member | Report Response

"the boring ass slideshow i had to endure... the time could have been better use to talk to the students" More from this Member | Report Response

"the area around stockton. there's nothing to do!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really negatively impressed me. Everyone from UOP was nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school is pretty bad, dirty, and seems to be dangerous to be at. The students that interviewed me asked very hard questions that i was not prepared for because it had nothing to do with pharmacy school or my background. The questions are randomed and bizarred. It really depends on the person who interviewed you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The student interviewer was friendly, though she seemed unprofessional; I didn't notice her take any notes regarding my responses to questions, and openly admitted to being a lazy student. Maybe she was trying to put me at ease." More from this Member | Report Response

"the boring campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Curriculum/reputation/expecation didn't seem as the same calibur as other schools I interviewed at. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the area around the school is mostly suburban and there doesn't seem to be much to do there" More from this Member | Report Response

"Small school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the students did reinforce the fact that there is basically nothing to do in Stockton. So if you wanna party in pharm school, UOP is not the place." More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely nothing. I loved everything about UOP." More from this Member | Report Response

"My faculty interviewer!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students didn't seem to do anything out of the pharmacy sphere. Most are in pharmacy fraternities and so time spent outside of classes are in these organizations. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything. Campus is butt ugly and the faculty's credentials are not very impressive" More from this Member | Report Response

"not much around campus. my order was bad. i had woken up at 6 am to catch a train there, and ended up having writing first, then tour, and FINALLY the interview. i was so exhausted from waking up early, the ride there, and then having to walk around campus all before my interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was way too long...over 3 hours with the tour, essay and interviews" More from this Member | Report Response

"The city around it. I am from L.A so I'm not used to the low-maintanence lifestyle of Stockton. But, it's only two years that you actually have to stay there, so I can handle it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"everything, literally, they were somewhat disorganized with a lot of aspects in the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"The bookstore is small." More from this Member | Report Response

"The number of students and of course the tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"everything else. it felt like the 2nd year students just wanted to finish up and move on to other areas of the USA. also, the 2nd year students seem somewhat uptight or obnoxious." More from this Member | Report Response

"the location - stockton leaves more to be desired for those who care about that kind of thing. that said, its a decent sized town though and not as desolate as i'd previously thought. another is the opportunity for research. while a great pharm school, its not the biggest in research - which i care about. but thats just me." More from this Member | Report Response

"old pharmacy building." More from this Member | Report Response

"small school, stockton not a nice neighborhood" More from this Member | Report Response

"area is not very nice, own phar students complained about the area" More from this Member | Report Response

"The student interviewers didn't seem interested or enthusiastic about what you have to say. They were more concerned with getting out of there as soon as possible. I felt very rushed at the interviews due to the short time." More from this Member | Report Response

"How the students did not take any pride in the town the school was in. I asked them what there was to do outside of school and most of them said there was not much to do in Stockton. Most also said that they went back home since I guess most of the students lived a few hours from Stockton. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the school is too ugly!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Stockton the town! Too ghetto!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The CAMPUS is too dreary. It is very ugly and too small!" More from this Member | Report Response

"i am getting interviewed by 2 different people - one student and one professor on different time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Since most of people get good news via email, I checked my email every 10 min. After one week of interview, I got a package and I thought it was a brochure, but it was an acceptance letter." More from this Member | Report Response

They will come back for "stragglers" but let's avoid the panic feeling. 2) morning is still cold 50's, by late morning is when it gets warm 70's. 3)Eat a good breakfast, not too full, but enough to last you till 4pm. School offers cookies and bottled water as snacks. 4) interviews is open file, they refer heavily on your resume." More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely get there 15-30 mins before your scheduled ''check-in'' time. My check-in was 12:30. I arrived at 12:15, and felt like I barely had enough time to use the restroom before they were seating us and handing out nametags. If you need to use the restroom, definitely do so before you check in. They didn't seem to be so flexible about letting people leave the room once they'd checked in."

The interview takes 3.5-4hrs, plan your flight accordingly- I know its hard to change when you get a travel pakcage from expedia but....understand that it really does take about 1 hour going back North to Sacramento on the five. Just pay the few extra measly dollars and stay at the Radisson. Its worth it. DO NOT stay at Vagbaund inn. Stay at a hotel. La-Quinta Suites is very close (1 exit) from the school.

"The interviews are not bad. At least from my experience, the interviewers were very nice which helped ease nervousness. Also most people are nervous so don’t be too hard on yourself!" More from this Member | Report Response

"be prepared to talk about yourself! that's all they want to know" More from this Member | Report Response

"20 minutes went by like a breeze. Also, I am actually a prepharmacy student. I know most of the people who fill these out are transfers, but I was a little disappointed that no one indicated that they were a prepharm in these surveys. So to any prepharm reading this: you have nothing to worry about. My mock interview was way more stressful that this one." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had really nice interviewers and monitor, so I felt lucky. Stay positive, smile and remember that they are also people." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought my interview did not go so well. I was intimidated because everyone else said their interview went really well and I did not feel that way at all. So even if you feel like it did not go so well, don't lose hopes! :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"UOP is definitely a great choice for pharmacy school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I WANT TO GO TO THIS SCHOOL!" More from this Member | Report Response

"They really make you feel comfortable and the interview day is very organized. The interviews go by super fast because it's just like a conversation. They split you into 3 groups: tour, interview, and essay. Then you rotate between the 3 things-very organized day!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I think I did well on the interview and writing part... but... it seems like everyone did well:) and ...they cannot take all of us..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wonderful school, great faculty. They have a writing sample that's an hour long. It's two interviews - one with faculty, other with student (done separately). Know your resume and come prepared with some questions to ask them!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed the student interview very much. It was more like a chat, which made me feel more myself. The key is to relax and be yourself. " More from this Member | Report Response

May want to bring some candy, mint or gum to help calm and refresh yourself. Remember: Breath, Smile, and Chit Chat. =) Good Luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school with smart and fun students! Interviewers were friendly and easy to talk to; this really was a "chat session." I mean, we talked about good books and art and travel, hardly anything about pharmacy so I felt like they were really trying to get to know me as a person." More from this Member | Report Response

"They try to make you as relaxed as possible, I didn't really believe it in the beginning, but people are very nice and approachable. They vary the "interesting" question and the writing sample question with each interview week. " More from this Member | Report Response

"okay" More from this Member | Report Response

"i had fun during the interview. but overall, if i do get accepted, i would not go here. i have one more interview atusc. i am hoping to get into usc instead of uop." More from this Member | Report Response

"great experience ...shouldnt have stressed as much as i did...not necessary" More from this Member | Report Response

"Relaxed interview. It was quick and easy. They have monitors that gets assigned to every 2 students so you can talk to them and ask questions about the school while you wait for your next scheduled event." More from this Member | Report Response

"It went well. I got accepted but I got into USC (thank goodness). UOP is not a good place to learn pharmacy. It may be a 3 year program but the tution is what kills off the good deal. The professors are awesome. The students sucks! They can't even lead at all. They were too busy criticizing the school that they forgot to tell us how good the school was for us if we were to attend. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They make every effort to relax you, the essay is brief (a page and a half) and in pen. The interviews are indeed chats (my student interviewer was more stressed than I was, if his sweaty palms were any indication)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I'm not sure how I did. It was my first interview, and I was pretty nervous! My faculty interviewer sort of threw me for a loop, but I think I answered the questions as well as possible, given the situation. I definitely feel better prepared for the next interview though!" More from this Member | Report Response

"UOP is a great school to study pharmacy. The current students were very enthusiastic and there are lots of interesting clubs to join. The interview with the professor was much more relaxing compared to the interview with the student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"UOP tries to make the students feel comfortable. The interview sessions were very conversational. Don't stress out, just be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall i had a great experience. i enjoyed meeting everyone. i left my interview very satisfied with my visit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Besides the initial issue with the student assistant I mentioned, the interviews went pretty well. Both the student and faculty interviewers were conversational, neither asked particularly off-the-wall questions. All are pretty relevant to what they should know about an applicant. The cookies were good." More from this Member | Report Response

"UOP was not at the top of my list, and when I went to the interview I had already gotten my acceptance from USC. I figure I would check out the school anyway, so I came there without really preparing. However, I was very impressed by the school's faculty, facilities, and students. They were all very nice to me (especially my faculty interviewer). We had a great conversation, and it did not seem like an interview at all! I also liked how we had a tour (unlike USC where it was just interview, writting, and you're done). The only reason why I am not going to UOP (I got my acceptance last week) is because it did not seem to have man opportunities for research. And the location, its in the middle of nowhere. I would be bored out of my mind. Overall, UOP is a great school. If location is not important to you, I would definitely give UOP a chane. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview process totally changed my perception of UOP from negative to positive. I would go here if accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"Orientation/welcome followed by 1) Two 20-minute interviews (one with faculty open-file and one with a 2nd year student closed-file), 2) A campus tour & slideshow presentation, and 3) 1-hour writing sample (opinion essay on a health-related issue)" More from this Member | Report Response

"very relaxing. I was nervous coming into the interview, but when i got there, everyone was friendly and very welcoming. THe faculty seem to be very nice and supportive. The interview was pretty easy" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were divided into three groups. The first group did a tour, second group interview, and third group the essay. Then rotate. The interview with the professor and student are separte, 15 minutes each. I thought my interview went pretty well. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Enjoy able experience, learned a lot about the school. Got to know the students and professors there. Bad luck with the interview questions (off the wall if you know what i mean). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviews (one student and one with faculty member) were low stress, and they're really just trying to get to know you as a person. I wasn't prepared for one of the faculty member's questions b/c she discussed what she did for awhile and then asked me if I had any questions about what she described--so pay attention! It's a good idea to have a few questions ready. It doesn't hurt to request their card at the end if you can remember, to thank them later. Also, try to squeeze in things about yourself in your responses that you think are important--I felt like there was much I didn't get the chance to say when the interviews were over, and that left me uneasy." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall really nice, except it was terribly cold there in stockton. they were nice because they gave us cookies in the middle of our interview sessions to calm us down." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not stressful. Had a little intro. Interviewed with the student (like talking with a classmate). Interviewed with a staff member. Wrote my essay. Group tour with the student. Drove home. " More from this Member | Report Response

"people were divided into three groups and rotated thru the events (writing sample - 1hr, tour/presentation, interview) the interview was split into to sessions, one w/a professor and one w/a 2nd yr student and they both had the resume that you submitted as part of the supp." More from this Member | Report Response

"just a chance for faculty to get to know you in person, just be yourself" More from this Member | Report Response

"UOP is a good school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Basically, the Dean had told us they were gonna interview about 250-300 students for their class. I'm not sure how many they're gonna accept but UOP is known to have a pretty large class so the odds seem pretty favorable. If you get to inteview, pat yourself on the back. They had like 1900 apps and only interview about 1/6. Good luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews with the faculty member and student were very relaxed. It was like have a conversation with someone. We talked about everything: movies, school, the upcoming election, lab experience, pharmacy experience, goals, etc. They want to see that you can talk to people and can carry on a conversation. So relax!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I saw the campus the day before and ran into the Dean of the Pharmacy School. He was very nice and actually took some time to speak with my family. However, on the day of the interview, the rest of the student body did not seem excited to be at the school. However, what really killed the experience was my faculty interviewer. For my twenty minute interview, he spoke for at least half the time. I found out later that he was one of the most difficult and quirky professors in the school. My student interviewer was fine. I think if I had another faculty interviewer, my experience would have been more positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was extremely kind and it really gave me a good impression about the program. I can really see myself getting along with the rest of the students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was the least stressful one that I have. Yet it is the one interview I dispise the most. Nothing was interesting about UOP. The students are mean and does not look happy at all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"gorgeous campus, nice faculty members, horrible lottery system I got (with interview being last). " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty cool. I was in the group that had the interviews last. At first I was concerned and worried because this was my first interview. I think doing the essay and having the tour first made me really relaxed. My advice to all is to talk to the other applicants. That really relaxes you!" More from this Member | Report Response

"When I first read about UOP on SDN, I was so disappointed with all the negative comments. After visiting UOP, I was VERY impressed. Basically, judge the school for yourself, don't just listen to other people's reviews. By the way, the faculty member doesn't have any of your files, but the student interviewer does. They interview you seperatley. Two, 25 minute interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"I know that I will get an acceptance from UOP. I went to a UC for undergrad and have a 4.0 GPA as a art major. I have 4 years of pharmacy experience and have my own business. I am justing waiting on my acceptance letter, sometime in December! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview with the current pharmacy student was great layed backa nd chit chatty. The interview with the faculty member was ok, it seemed like he was tring to rattle my cage, by making it seem like he didn't like my answers. But i don't rattle easily and saw right through him." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had fun during the interview. I just didn't like the school because it cost so much! " More from this Member | Report Response

"it went great, however, if you got accepted to another school, go to the other one. UOP is a great school with an awesome curriculum, but with a class size of 200 (with half being there own students)and total debt of about $150,000 after graduating, going to this school might not seem so good esp. considering the shortage of pharmacists in cali is going to end around 2007 and 2008. the place that i live in as of now, is fully saturated with pharmacists, 2 years ago we barely had any. so all in all, if i had to do it all over again, i would of not applied to this school considering the pro's and con's."

"Hmm...UOP is a good school if you want to get a Pharm D. in 3 years and not get outside distraction. Despite being accepted a few weeks after my interview, I don't think I'll end up going there since I'm looking for a school that offers much more than a degree. The non refundable $500 deposit I threw down is killing me now. SERENITY NOW!" More from this Member | Report Response

"this was my 5th interview, so by then i was not nervous at all! the interview was somewhat like a chit-chat." More from this Member | Report Response
