What impressed you positively?

"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." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interviews were totally no-stress. There's 2 interviews (1 with faculty, 1 with student) and an essay. The essay was just an opinion paper on a current pharmaceutical issue and the interviews were laid-back and very chill. They try to make it a non-stress, fun day for you and it's really enjoyable." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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!" Report Response
