"Shorten the Interview process? maybe the 1 hour asking financial and students questions...."
"before interview, interviewer inform me that they will stress me with the questions . Most of the questions center around how to "chose a basketball team & why you hate the other team so much?" has nothing to do with pharmacy. My friends did interview at the same time did not received the same questions, so it seem the school is not consistence with the questions so it up to the interview. ALso, the interviewer also asked me if I have stress in my family? -it none of your business & does not relate to pharmacy. SO as you can see I did not have nice day."
