KGI/Health Sciences review them pretty fast like within one week, Pacific and Touro take a little longer, still waiting on Western/USC but some people have already gotten interviews at USC

20 minute interview with faculty, 20 minute interview with a student, both very laid back. The professor I interviewed with was very intelligent and charismatic really made me interested in going to UOP if they have professors like that teaching. Usual questions, but they seemed to be looking for a little more depth in each question rather than just what people memorize

if you come at 12 you should be fine. they dont really start until 1pm. i actually got there at around 11:30 and no one was really there until 11:40, but they weren't set up yet. i was only there early because i had to check out of my hotel though.

So you mind sharing about your interview experience and how you prepare for it? I got an interview for 11/13
I just reviewed the interview question post on here. The interview was really laid back. 20 min interview with professor then 20 minutes with a 2nd year student, then a writing prompt and tour. The groups were about 6 ppl each but then you break into groups of 2. Since I have 5 years tech experience I was able to relate all the questions I got asked to that.

Anyone know about the laptop the school issues and if its mandatory?
I am currently a student at UOP'17 and a laptop/electronic fee is added to your tuition. UOP uses specific laptop (Lenovo) that have a program installed to take quizzes, midterms, & finals. And sadly, you cannot get out from it.... and yes you'll complain a lot about it but there's nothing we can do about it haha! :sorry:
