What was the most interesting question?

"Scenario given: I am a pharmacist, & a woman comes in to fill a prescription for her child. While she's waiting for you to fill it, she goes up to the front of the store and buys a carton of cigarettes. She comes back to pick up the prescription, and when I show her how much it costs, she refuses to pay it (even though it costs around as much as the carton of smokes she's just purchased). What do I do?" More from this Member | Report Response

"They gave me this scenario - one professor comes in...lectures and gives you the mateiral one has to know; while another one comes in...gives you assignments and topics you have to read( self-study)- the class time is supposed to be used only for answering any questions or problems...so he bascically doesn't teach the traditional way...---and then I was asked to comment on that.."

What was the most difficult question?

"Why the career change (IT management/system implementation to pharmacy)?" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was tough because it was wierd--they asked me what I would do if an old lady came to the pharmacy...and was just lost... I answered it well ...i mean its kindof obvious that one would be empathetic and try to figure out what is wrong, and why she is there and try to locate a relative or caretaker etc...and i said that..but she just looked blankly at me!! (the question was asked by one of the student interviewers)" More from this Member | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN interview experiences & pharm/pre-pharm message boards. Extensively read the school's website. Tried, rather unsuccessfully, to find out more about the Wilkes-Barre area. Reminded myself to be professional and composed during the interview no matter how tough it got. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the common questions I was prepared for...other than that...i just knew what i want out of life..just be clear about your motivations etc.." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How personable and professional everyone was." More from this Member | Report Response

"I like that the school is small...the dedication of the faculty was impressive. I already know that th enaplex scores for wilkes have been amazing over the years. Also I think the student life there is better than any place i've seen...they have wonderful commuter lounges..and the cafetaria and food was realy good.. its a place any student would be very comfortable in..." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The lack of diversity in the student body relative to the diversity of a Philadelphia-area school's student body." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school offers no...and i mean none..not even a single $ to transfers who come in with a bachelors.. Plus...their system for interview was not th ebest...You take the interview as soon as you get there...I was interviewed by 5 people...they literally drilled me...they only take 20 minutes to get to know you...and then when I asked a question in the end-- the guy got totally stuck and was silent for ..like 2 minutes!! But yeah...its tough alright..don't expect them to go easy and try to relieve your nerves before anything...almost anyone I talked to had the same impression...Its going to be direct, and very fast...so really be prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I knew it would be competitive, since Wilkes essentially has a 6-year program. I heard that they accept 4-6 transfers per year into the 3rd year. So I was quite nervous. I felt like I had an almost instant rapport with the faculty member who "ran" my interview, and that my advanced age (30) granted my motivations a seriousness: I have fewer years to make up for a mistake than a 19-year-old does. " More from this Member | Report Response

"When you first go in they check your size for a lab coat..take a picture...go wait in a sitting area which is surrounded by the interview rooms...someone will come and get you soon!! and then be prepared because the 20 minutes go by so quick...each interviewer asks a couple questions. Then they give you a chance to ask them questions. After that you can leave the room while they sit there for about 10 minutes and deliberate...scary!! The we took a 45 minutes long critical thinking test...easy...then a 30 minute long essay..easy again..they don't care about your stand on the issue just your writing style, composition, grammer etc." More from this Member | Report Response
