    Just got a interview there for dec 14th. Anything you can tell us about the school? The interview seems laid back..its a 1 on 1 interview with the assistant dean? Or is it two interviews one panel and 1 with the assistant dean?

    Also, this school is new correct? Has it received regional accredidation so we can obtain federal loans?

    I asked if they had another date for interviews and now I am scheduled for a January 28th interview. Everyone who does the December 14th interview will have to let me know how it goes.

    I had everything finished in September but they weren't sending out invites at that time so I don't know how long it will take at this point. Good luck though :thumbup::)

    Ok Guys i had final til last week and sorry for late response for those of you you will be interviewing tomorrow.
    1. when you are invited for interview at CSU-COP you are the best and the school wants you. so do not stress and be honest on your answers.
    2. look for interview questions on feedback section so if you able to answer those question you will be fine
    3. know the school mission and vision statement very very important
    4. dress professional, be your best
    5. answer questions accurately, do not take yourself away from the question
    6. Know about Pharmacy profession current issues and future of pharmacy
    7. Explain how you can take 8am-5pm class schedule and study plus IPPE
    these r some of the quality the school looks plus look feedback questions, like i said you are 10% way from acceptance.
    Good Luck and i will try to answer some questions today if any

    The school had its regional accreditation since its a part of Chicago State University and you can get federal loans, the school of Pharmacy will gets its fullaccreditation upon the first graduation class of 2012.

    How did the dec 14th interview go? What did you think of the campus, location, faculty, and staff? Were you impressed and do you still want to attend?

    If you are a US citizen or permanent resident you are eligible for government loans up to school estimated cost of attendance. I have been awarded full amount which covers tuition and all other expenses.

    Hey ETO! thanks for the info. You have been really helpful. Trying to figure out my finances to compare schools. Is this your first year there? Does that mean you saved on tuition for your second semester? Would I just need to plan to live in Chicago in Jun to qualify for that change in spring?

    how long was the interview? did it really go from 745 to 1pm? I want to fly back the same day and there is a flight at 1pm, im wondering if I can make that. The other two interviews I went to got out much earlier than they had said.

    It did Take the whole time. There is a lot of downtime sitting and waiting for the interviews to occur, but they have food and you got lunch after. The dean comes in at the end to talk and welcome everyone.

    I interviewed yesterday at CSU. I really enjoyed my stay in Chicago and would love to establish my residency there. Faculty and staff are extremely friendly, and provided us with lunch to end the day. :D
