What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was not a pharmacist and therefore didn't want to know why we wanted to become a pharmacist. As he said, "I don't care and don't want to know." I didn't like knowing that he was the only interviewer (that I've heard from students and other interviewees) that asked technical questions. He was easy to talk to and tried to put us all at ease, however, he did ask rather controversial questions. I was impressed and glad that he did, but I think the others would be stressed about that. The Temple Allied Health Sciences Campus is in the middle of a pretty bad neighborhood. Considering that, I think the admin should have sent out directions--one lady got totally lost and missed her interview. I think commuting would be difficult. I wish the campus was in a more accessible part of Philly. I didn't find the interview questions stressful at all." Report Response
