Admission Interview

The Office of Admissions will email you if you have been selected for an interview on campus. We have transitioned to a paperless system, and will not communicate with our applicants via regular mail. It is the responsibility of the applicant to frequently check their PharmCAS account and their email communications throughout the admission cycle for updates to their status with CNUCOP.

Interview sessions typically last 5-6 hours. Invitations are sent via email. Plan to arrive 30 minutes early to check in and prepare for the interview session. Dress attire is professional. Applicants are encouraged to arrive at the time recommended in their interview confirmation. Candidates interview with one faculty and one faculty/student panel. The interviews are conducted in a modified multiple mini interview format. The focal points of the interview are assessing the candidate’s critical thinking, as well as their verbal and written communication skills.
