    Go to the new pharmacy building, 1415 S. Martin Luther King. Go to the 3rd floor and make a right and they will point to the waiting room where you will wait.

    I didn't bring anything.

    My interview lasted for about 15-20 minutes. You will get a tour after the interview and talk to some of the pharmacy students...

    LOL! It is crazy. I keep reflecting back on the interviewing wondering if I could have said more. I should have done the interview on the last day. Yes. That's the only school I want to attend. I love their program.

    Report to the pharmacy building. Head up to the 3rd floor. You won't need anything in terms of paperwork. Bring your self confidence. Be yourself. I was asked to introduce myself, was interviewed by 2 staff and I gave closing remarks. I filled out a survey on distance learning, then a tour and mingling with 3rd year students.

    I do wonder why they always use so many people to interview, and i have heard the interview horror stories, but really what can they say to make people cry?

    Don't walk around the area at night if you don't have to, there are tons of shootings and crime. I have personally witnessed a shooting right by the campus.

    I heard some people say there's were horrible, but they still ended up getting accepted. Remember they look at you as a whole (interview, GPA, pharmacy experience, leadership roles, etc). Unless you went in there cursing people out, you probably did better than what you think.

    ok ziggy cool but what kind of questions did they ask, also how many people interview you and what time did you do your interview...I also heard that the amount of pre-pharmacy students applying this time around is a lot less than previous years, so they probably going to accept more transfer students so hopefully this time around we all can get in...my interview is sometime next week as well...

    They will ask you questions about yourself and what you wrote on the application. They might intimidate you a bit, but be confident.

    What was intimidating about it? I am tyring to figure out why so many people have bad experiances.

    Hopefully mine wont be too bad, then again i have 2 acceptance letters already so the pressure is kind of off... but i would prefer FAMU

    I was told after my interview that about 100 students had been interviewed. I interviewed on the first day, so I assume that the 100 came from their pre-pharm program. I was also told that a 100 more would be interviewed. So based on what I was told and what you guys are saying, we can see that out of 200 students 180 will be accepted.

    Well that seems like pretty good odds to me if it's correct.

    Rx2015 - Samford, and Sullivan, and a interview left at UF if this one doesnt go so hot.
