What are your general comments?

"All in all it was a very positive experience. My interview started at 1p (with an optional tour at 12p - I did not go to that), and began with an admissions welcome, then a dean's address. the dean went through the entire curriculum, the school, the people, the place, etc. then, after a short break the interviews began - i was lucky enough to be 2nd so i didn't have to wait very long. while we were waiting for our turn there were plenty of pharmacy students around that you could talk to. the interview itself, though formal, was very congenial. they asked me a lot of questions about the activities i am involved in, not too many difficult things - just talking about what i love to do. after the interview, i went back to the room with all of the other interviewees and had a file review with an admissions counselor. after that i was free to go - i was out the door by about 3:45-4p."
