What was the most interesting question?

"Talk about a time when you set a goal and how you went about achieving the goal and then how you measured your success." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing out of the ordinary." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing interesting - just boring non-pharmacy related questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Because I have a strong background in pharmaceutical research, I was asked why PharmD instead of Ph.D. This opened a unique opportunity for discussion." More from this Member | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"went over common questions online" More from this Member | Report Response

"SDN and learning from other interview experience." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"talking with the current students" More from this Member | Report Response

"The city was better than I remember it. Current students seemed nice, and I think they like their program." More from this Member | Report Response

"You have classes with ALL pharmacy students from your year; there is a huge (and very important) commradery amongst classmates. " More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The 45 minutes with the Pitt students prior to the interview was kind of awkward since there seemed to be no structure to the q&a time or the tour of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers weren't that friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"It may have just been my bad luck, but it appeared that I got 2 interviewers that were dragged into interview me against their will. Both interviewers buried their heads into their note sheets and started scribbling as soon as I started to speak. No eye contact at all. I wasn't given the opportunity to ask questions, and I had a lot. Pitt was very very high on my list of potential schools, but they dropped off my list completely following this visit. I didn't learn anything about the school or program that I didn't know before the visit. I've interviewed at many schools, and this was by far the most impersonable interview that I had been on. Very uninspiring experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"All classes are held within 3 lecture halls and 1 laboratory, all in one buildind, which is very surprising for such a huge university ." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pitt is Pitt. Good school but hard to get into. Good luck." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very nervous andI felt okay afterwards. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Uninformative, uninspiring and disappointing. I hate to be negative - Pitt is a good program and has a great reputation, but I had a terrible and uninformative visit. I hope no one else gets the same interviewers that I did." More from this Member | Report Response

"The first half-hour was a group q/a session with about 10 candidates and 6 current Pitt pharmacy students. It was very welcoming! Everyone (students and administrators) was very nice. The tour was good and the tour guide was such a proud Pitt Pharmacy student! The interviewers were very straight-faced, but somewhat warm throughout the interview. I feel good about the flow of the day." More from this Member | Report Response
