The Admissions Committee invites alumni to participate in interviewing PharmD candidates during spring break in March. The committee interviews approximately 300 each year to find the very best to fill approximately 165 seats available for the incoming first year class. Many alumni have participated in the past have relayed their enjoyment in being a part of the process and are continually impressed by the quality of potential students they see. The College is honored to have alumni assist with such an important process as picking the future of the college.

The interviews follow a Behavior Based Interview (BBI) process. For those who wish to learn more about this type of interview, training will be provided. 

For more information or to sign up, please contact Deb Agard (agard@uic.edu) or 312-996-3397. Refreshments, lunch and parking will be provided for alumni during the interview week.
