Twilight Zone-ish

I'm at a national pharmacy conference and preparing to give a presentation to other pharmacy school admissions representatives -- regarding THIS blog! (Perhaps you will begin to see other schools create their own blogs.)  Anyway, I thought it would be a bit Twilight Zone-ish (or Matrix-y) to post a picture -- on this blog -- of me working on the PowerPoint -- about this blog. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. We are gearing up for wild fall!

Joel really enjoyed your presentation about your blog. Our fourth year students blog about their clinical rotations and it is very popular. I've been thinking about my own admissions director blog and I think I will give it a try!

Joel, also really enjoyed your presentation @ AACP about your blog. At our COP (College of Pharmacy), we're also looking at launching a blog similar to yours.

I'm not a blogger, and haven't seen a lot of blogs, but from what I know about college admissions from my 10+ years in the field, you have a really good resource for Pharm D. applicants as well as applicants to graduate/professional/doctoral-level programs.

So, this has caused some professional jealousy on my part.

Thanks for giving us some ideas to implement at our COP.

The winners are truly the applicants. They will be better prepared, they'll be empowered to be confident in their skills & abilities, and present themselves to us better on paper and in person.

We as COPs around the country will have better info to share to our admissions committees. When the committee members look at the files of these empowered applicants, their response will be (and I'm paraphrasing, here) "Wow, this person is totally awesome, let's admit him/her as soon as possible!"

Good job Joel. Keep it up.
