Hey... I don't think anyone from Iowa has had their interviews yet for next year... I'm pretty sure this Saturday is the first one. That's when I have mine! I'm so scared but also excited! I wonder how long it'll take to hear after the interview.. I just want to know already!

Yep, I will have mine tomorrow too, Feb.10. Good luck to everyone.
I will go to the afternoon one. I am a little bit worried about my interview essay. They require us to write 2 essay for 2 questions. I couldn't even write a decent one in half an hour. but anyway, I still hope for a good result.:p

Mine is in the morning tomorrow. I'm scared for the essays too! Does anyone know what kind of questions they ask? Are they personal or related to the field of pharmacy? Good luck to everyone!

Their website says they are interviewing through March, so maybe you will get an interview for a later date in March. :oops:

The interview today went really well I thought!! I was really nervous but the people were really laid back... you got to meet a lot of people, which was nice. The dean was incredibly friendly and made sure to talk to everyone. The writing session was very easy.. nothing too stressful. I really enjoyed the tour because I've never really seen the COP. The 3 students giving the tour were also pretty helpful. All in all, I thought it was a very good experience. I was really scared, but there was really no reason to be. Good luck to everyone!

Hey, everyone. I will be flying to Iowa City through Cedar Rapids for my Iowa interview. This also marks the first time for me to fly outside of the south during winter and spring time. I am excited to go up North. This might be a stupid question, but what should I wear to cope with the freezing weather of Iowa City after living in Florida and southern China for all my life?

On Saturday (when I had my interview), it was like -8 degrees out... so I wore a heavy coat. Today it's much more bearable (probably around 30s) so if you had only had a lighter coat, you'd probably be fine. Check the weather. You take your coat off right when you get there, so it doesnt really matter what it looks like. I know some people have posted on here asking if they need to wear a dressy coat. Bring gloves! Your hands will really hurt if it's as cold as it was this weekend without gloves. Otherwise, you really aren't outside at all, except for walking from your car so it's not a big deal.
