My general advise is dont talk too much. and remember that you want to concentrate too much with the associate dean cause he is the one that will make you get in or not. speak politely and to the question dont add more. they use problem solve type of question all the time. if they ask you give example give them something that you will be able to solve. wish you all good luck" More from this Member | Report Response

"Wonderful school, faculty, program. Unfortunate location. No tour of the facility was offered; students seemed to be very proud to be there. Every here and there, there were groups of students working on common projects which gave impression of health emotional climate." More from this Member | Report Response

"These questions aren't exact. You forget so much right after walking out, but I hope they help others prepare! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Be yourself. It's just a conversation. Limit 'ums'. Have prepared questions; the interview process is a two-way street. Learn as much as you can about the school; you'll have multiple opportunities to do so. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience at this school. There was a quick introduction, interview, student panel session, and then FAQ's." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview went well. Make sure you practice...this helped me because the person interviewing said that I did a good job and gave great answers. Also, don't be afraid to talk with the faculty, students, and fellow interviewees. It'll help you relax and learn about the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the process went well. It made me feel more of an urge to go to Campbell than when I got there. I feel that Campbell truly is the school for me. I like how the campus is so close to each other and how friendly everyone seemed." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was scheduled for 230, so I checked in and was told to sit in a waiting area with about 15 other students. The Director of Admissions came out and read us questions to answer one by one in the group setting, just to use as a "warm-up" before we actually went into our interview. The actual interview was one-on-one with a staff member, and his assistant was there too. Overall pleasant experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall good impression. I got the call 1 week after the interview that I did get into the school. They actually said that they would "love for me to join their family." That impressed me. The other schools I applied to (and got in) did not personally invite me to join their school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers seemed to do most of the talking but I guess that was a good thing because they could actually relate to what I was saying. Before the interview, they asked us to write an essay on three strengths and weaknesses that we may have." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were a lot of us there, broken into groups for a presentation, interview, and meeting with a student panel to answer questions. The whole process took 2 1/2 hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process started with an info session and then the group of ~30 applicants was split into those that would interview and those that were going to write an essay. The groups then would switch. My interview lasted about 40 minutes mostly because I asked questions about their program, they literally only asked me the questions I have posted. My 3 interviewers were alum PharmD from CU, a P2 student, and a faculty member on the admissions committee. The faculty member was all too serious about the process. (I manage a staff of 12 and I have interviewed and maintained that staff for the last 2.5 years, I know how to interview and how to conduct myself during an interview, I have personally interviewed nearly 80 individuals and I would never make an applicant be made to feel as uncomfortable I felt.) The committee member acted as though he could pressure me into fearing how “difficult” their program is. Thankfully that all ended and I moved on to the essay. Applicants are given 30 minutes to complete the essay topic (which I won’t be giving away). If I were planning to live on campus I would consider this school, otherwise I don't feel as though it is worth the drive into the middle of nowhere. It was not at all what I was really hoping for. If I am admitted I will be denying admissions and hoping I am accepted to my other school of choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience at campbell. The campus was beautiful and the faculty, staff, and students were very nice. While it is quite out of the way, the location helps students to focus on pharmacy, which is really the point of entering a PharmD program. I was very impressed by the close-knit and communal atmosphere, the open-door policy of the faculty and the extremely high board passage rate of campbell university grads. I you're looking for a small, friendly, community-type education, this is the place to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview went well. I enjoyed my interviewers (they were very professional). Though its different from a city school, I think if our main goal is pharmacy school, we can adjust to our surroundings." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was really disappointed with the facilities at Campbell and the lack of friendliness the interviewers displayed. However, the school does seem to pride itself in exellent education of its students." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was an essay and an interview, the essay was on "why campbell should pick you, give some strengths you have over others" and the interview was for some reason 4:1, I felt VERY intimidated since I had gone to undergrad there but transferred out to finish my degree, the interviewers asked questions that made me think but didn't give too much in terms of feedback for me to read their reactions. There is of course the offered tour and questions at the end you might have." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great overall experience. Walked into the lobby to check in, listened to an informational session, had my interview, wrote an essay, and took a tour of the pharmacy school." More from this Member | Report Response

"good, don't let them intimdate you. If you have pharmacy experience play it up. If you don't have pharmacy experience you shouldn't even be applying because you don't kknow what your getting yourself into!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought I had to wait really long because I live only an hour away, but I didn't have to wait long at all. The whole interview process lasted 1 hour 30 mins." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I attended Campbell for a year before I applied, so I knew the atmosphere and some of the faculty members. Therefore, I was prepared in that regard for the interview. However, I should have had some trial interviews or something before I went there because this was my first interview ever, and I was pretty nervous and I think it was pretty obvious. I also have a baby so that was a big topic of conversation. Here's a tip...always have an answer for everything. If they ask you "What's your favorite song?" (which they probably won't, that's just hypothetical) don't say "oh, I have a lot, I can't really think of a favorite." That's so boring, NAME a song and make up a reason why its your favorite! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview started really bad. In driving down from Raleigh-Durham, the drive was long. There was hardly any signs for the school, and the school was in the middle of nowhere. It was really hard to find the pharmacy school, because it was on one end of the campus, and there was no student that really knew where it was. When we got to the pharmacy school, the people were not really nice. They somewhat talked down to you. You were given the names of your interviewers and then made to go to the auditorium to sit until the interviews started. The informational session started late and when it did start, there was not much that was impressive. Also, we had to write an essay on how important the health care system was, and how pharmacists and clinicians worked together. Obviously this is an easy question for anybody who has had an experience in the health care field. After that, you had to wait forever and a day to get an interview. They of course made people wait by how far they were from the school. There were many people from different states there. When I got into the interview, the interviewers talked down to you, and seemed they did not really care what you had to say. They kept interrupting you and kept looking away from you when they were interviewing. Aren't interviewers supposed to sound enthused? Because these interviewers did not. Sometimes it seemed like talking to a brick walls. I was not impressed at all, and then after the interview you could leave. At other pharmacy schools there was at least snacks or food or something, but at this one there was not. For a private school, it was quite disappointing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not Bad" More from this Member | Report Response

"Horrible. The faculty member who interviewed me was not friendly at all. They need to remember that not only am I trying to look good for them, but they need to look good for me too! If they expect to get the best students they need to treat them well." More from this Member | Report Response

"long and tedious-- i have never experienced anything so draining. All i did was sit in a chair." More from this Member | Report Response
