"Just review your pharmcas application; specifically your personal statement. Prepare a CV and a cover letter stating why you want to go to UNE and what you personally can provide to the college of pharmacy. I did all these things and my interviewers where very impressed. Also, before you interview try to picture yourself as a pharmacist and how you would interact w/ other pharmacist, nurses, patients, and doctors. My interviewers seemed very interested w/ my experience as a hospital pharmacy tech and how I interacted w/ nurses, patients, and doctors. Also, if you are interested in research mention it in both your cover letter and the interview. Also, try to be specific as to what type of research you are interesed in, why, and how it can benefit the profession and patients overall." More from this Member | Report Response
