    The interview is pretty laid back. Just make sure you are prepared as soon as you step out of your car haha. First, several faculty members will try to sell their school to you. Basically give you their history and their programs they offer and the general information you may need to know. Then Pharmacy Ambassadors (pharmacy students) will take you on a tour of the campus. After the tour you have a student interview with second or third year pharmacy student. This is pretty laid back..i was in a cafeteria. After that you go back to where you started...I didn't realize this but this was the second interview. You just mingle with everyone. Make sure you talk to anyone and everyone!! lol After that you will be taken to your final interview with a faculty/pharmacist. I had it with Dr. Bonner. she was pretty chill. Its really a laid back interview!!! Good luck to all that are applying and Congrats to Mercer Class of 2016 peeps Ayeeee:thumbup:

    I have an interview coming up at Mercer. I've been reading their website (http://cophs.mercer.edu/pharmd.htm) to get information about the school but so far I don't feel comfortable answering the question "Why Mercer?" yet.. Could someone tell me or pinpoint me to where I can find more info about the curriculum, location, teaching style, rotation sites, etc.? What does the school pride itself on? Any help is appreciated.

    I private message students of a particular school that I'm interested in on this forum to learn more about the school.
    Go to this link: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=208624 Click on what ever class you want and find Mercer.
    It shows a list of people who have been accepted to pharmacy schools. Then go to the community tab at the top and click on member list and then go to search to find their profile to pm them.

    There is a campus tour so wear comfortable shoes. Weather may be chilly. The faculty interview was the most interview-like, others are more conversational.

    Hey everyone!

    I am a current P1 at Mercer University. My name is Spenser, I just logged on to see what the SDN thread for Mercer looks like this year! So far it looks somewhat active. I'll be checking periodically, so if you have any questions PM or just respond on the thread! Take care everyone, and good luck this semester.

    PhoenixFire, when did you receive your acceptance letter/phone call? I assume you went to the 10-14 interview day. (I'm just trying to judge how long it should take to hear back, I actually went to the 10-28 interview date, and they were supposed to meet today, Nov 1st, to make their decisions)

    Hi there,

    A 64 is great! My PCAT was alot lower than yours. My composite was only a 45, but the fact my chem score was 64 and bio was 87, I'm sure that helped me out a little. Also, I have completed all their pre-reqs and I have a Master's degree.

    There were 10 people I think but we were told our interview group was a little smaller. That was the October 28th group.

    Congrats Ben and Blake! I remember you guys. I got in too :) I'm Danielle... if it's not obvious by the username haha.
