"..." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was a very easy interview. The interviewer didn't even write anything down. Either it was pass or fail, or I was given a courtesy interview, but they don't seem like they would waste time with courtesy interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think I did good on my interview orally and the written part, it was hard for me to read my interviewer. I don't know what impression I left on him." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was like more of a conversation, the interviewer were nice but a little intimidating. I guess I was a nervous wreck that's why he seemed intimidating." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was good. The person who interviewed me was polite and looked throughout my file and asked me questions about my transcript and the individuals who recommended me." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was like a conversation. The interviewer just wants to make sure that the new P1 takes the program serious because many students don't once they are in." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very positive, very laid back. It was more of a conversation between the me and my interviewer. I really liked how they gave me a chance to ask any questions I had." More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at the front office where i waited about 20 minutes for my interviewer to come get me. Then he introduced himself and we walked to his office where the interview was held. It was very laid back, more like a conversation. It was an open file interview so he asked me a couple of things from my transcripts. Nothing too stressful. After the interview he let me know that we should expect to hear from the admissions committee about the first or second week of april. You recieve a score for the interview portion and a score for the essay portion. Then you are ranked among all the candidates. Xavier does give preference to their own students so I asked how many seats were still available, but he didn't know. However, he said that just being there was a good sign. Apparently, they only interview people they really want. Also, the essay is after the interview and everyone gets a diff. topic. They are pretty random, not really dealing w/ pharmacy." More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrived 20 minutes early. was asked to wait in the lobby. No other students were there for interview. Had time to talk to a pre pharm student for a while. Interviewer walked in and interview was conducted in a cubicle (conference room) in the pharmacy admissions office. Interviewer was friendly and polite and mostly tried to make sure I realise how a career in pharmacy is good and how Xavier is a good place to study. " More from this Member | Report Response
