What was the most interesting question?

"What Questions do you have for me? This was an interesting question becuase it was the very first question the interviewer asked me. I sat down ready to be interviewed, and the first thing she said is what questions do I have. This should give you a feel for how laid back the faculty and admissions is. Really nice people." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None were difficult, they asked why pharmacy, and if I would fit into their program. The Why pharmacy question can be difficult if you only want to be in the field for selfish reasons, then that would be the most difficult question in my opinion." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Watch Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Watch Obama Speak, study the school, SDN, and remember my past experiences in school, life and pharmacy" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school responds very quickly, except at the very en, to notify me of my acceptance. The other other interview dates found out they were accepted in 4-13 days. My group still hasn't found out if they were accepted, and its day 12. The only reason I know I got in is because I emailed the assistant dean and asked him. they are very nice and quick to respond in general. Campus is really integrated into the city, faculty is very kind, hospital is on campus, it's in the middle of the city, lots of things to do and places to eat. Lots of diversity in the area." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The program is very new which has pros and cons, Living on campus will cost you at least $1000 a month, there was a rat in my hotel that had me on my bed screaming like a girl, and I wish the tour was more in depth, we saw the campus, and the apartments, but not the class, or library, or cafeteria, or the hospital." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there are rats in my hotel, and that I would be asking all the questions at one of the interviews." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"School is one of the better newer programs in my opinion. they breezed through the accreditation process, and will most likely get full accreditation with ease. They are very focused on integrated health care, and interdisciplinary learning, and the faculty is extremely responsive and nice. It is a true city campus, and would be a fun and opportunistic environment to learn in. Good luck to all that apply, hope this helps you as it did help me." Report Response
