What are your general comments?

"We reported to a conference room and waited for the recruiter. I was in a group of 9 students. The recruiter came in and gave us an overview of what to expect for the day. She also gave us some historical background on the university. Admissions criteria and financial aid were also discussed. We had the opportunity to ask questions. We were then divided into 2 groups. A 4th year student led my group on a tour. After the tour, we had to write an essay which was based on one of 6 topics given to us. The topics covered a range of areas in pharmacy, healthcare and just being a student. I'm sure everyone could easily identify with at least one of the topics. Then we took a math test which was pretty basic and had 30 questions. The last part was the interview. I had the opportunity to interview with 1 faculty member and 1 recent graduate. Overall, the few hours spent were stress free. If anything, the anticipation of the interview was the most stressful." Report Response
