    This page describes interview experiences at a lot of schools.
    http://www.studentdoctor.net/interviewpharm/interview_read.asp
    The questions I was asked were "Why Midwestern?", "Why do you think you can handle the accelerated 3 year program?", "Who are your heros?"., "What are your hobbies?"...and I think that's about it. It's pretty laid back and everyone is really nice.
    When will you be interviewing?

    There were about 25 people at my interview (2003). Everyone was really nice, and the food was excellent ;). Taking a cab is no big deal, the traffic is nothing like Chicago. The questions are going to be different for everyone. I had totally different questions last year. Good luck.

    It rained quite a bit yesterday (some floods), but today it's just a little cloudy. It's about 65. I would plan on about 65-75 degrees for monday. Hopefully it doesn't rain for you guys.

    Well, they kind of ask you because it's what *you* think is important. Some students say that they value the smaller, private school because of the emphasis on teaching (no research), or they like the early clinical experience (1st, 2nd, 3rd years, while some are 4th year only). Look on their site and through the packet that they sent you. Pick out what's important to you.
