"If you had an open-book exam in a class, and your pal asked you for an answer, what would you do? (<cough> leave said pal hanging! it's open book, open book tests don't exist in college, at least they haven't for me <cough>)" More from this Member | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I reviewed a Pharmacy School applicant book; it had sample questions that i went over (none of which were asked). Also reviewed everything i knew about the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"pharmacist, sdn, internet google" More from this Member | Report Response

"Student Doctor Net! YAY FOR SDN! Also, I brainstormed around a dozen questions for myself to answer as practice. Questions ranged from views on importation of drugs to situational "if you were a retail pharmacist and this happened" types. That's really all you need to do, the interviews are more like conversations." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How friendly everyone was, i really felt at ease in the interview and while i was dealing with the staff." More from this Member | Report Response

"the peoples attitude " More from this Member | Report Response

"Good faculty, students are generally upbeat all over campus, fair amount of student diversity, improvements happening all over campus due to a new University President who - at the least - brings fresh blood to the leadership of the uni." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the town of Monroe. It just looks so small, gloomy and sad." More from this Member | Report Response

"school location" More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities are slightly old, admissions being reduced from 120 to 90 because Louisiana is relatively poor (and also due to some pharmacy students falling behind - many are older with family and have trouble staying on track), Monroe can be a really boring city depending who you are." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing, i think i was prepared and i had researched the location ahead of time so i had no trouble getting back and forth from hotel to school to airport." More from this Member | Report Response

"wished i had taken a friend to give me company" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I knew not to take the route I took to the college on my interview day! Dozens of cement trucks filled the road and traffic was blocked off, backed up, and detoured. I was quasi-late for the initial meeting in the lobby, therefore. Pues, que sera, sera." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I wish they had a done a tour. I understand the building i was in was new, and i wish i could have seen their facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"i had a very shaky start but became more comfortable as the process went on... thanks to my first interview at drake" More from this Member | Report Response

"First, please note that this University is now called the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Well, the interviews strike me as very conversational. So, speak up and speak well of what's on your mind for every question asked. If you don't know for sure how to answer, don't worry - take a few moments, and maybe tell the interviewer that you don't know by experience but your opinion at this time is such and such. I had two interviewers with interesting pharmacy-related experiences, so be sure to ask about the interviewers' education/background/work experience. The essay portion takes place in the afternoon, opposed to the interviews of the morning. On the essay, you'll receive three topics to write on (can be anything) and you choose one. 1 hour is given to type or handwrite the essay - a fair amount of time to construct a basic and coherent response. On a final note, everyone I encountered on my interview day appeared upbeat/positive/friendly. Good signs." More from this Member | Report Response
