The College of Pharmacy implements a holistic admissions process that evaluates an array of applicant cognitive and non-cognitive attributes, including applicant's full record of academic achievement, performance on standardized test, personal characteristics, likely contributions to the intellectual and cultural vitality of the campus, accomplishments in research, leadership, service to others, participation in extracurricular activities, and other evidence of achievment.

Invited applicants will participate in a half-day interview day. We have implemented the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) as part of the admissions process. The MMI is similar in format to the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE). Applicants rotate through a circuit of ‘stations', each designed as a brief (5–7 minute) interview with a trained interviewer who assesses non-cognitive characteristics that are important for success in pharmacy school. In addition, applicants will be required to provide a writing sample and participate in a small group activity.
