"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?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Why the career change (IT management/system implementation to pharmacy)?" 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. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How personable and professional everyone was." 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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not to listen to the school employee who, while strolling through the waiting area, informed me that the police wouldn't ticket me where I was parked. $10 later..." 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. " Report Response
