What are your general comments?

"I felt the interview with the UW faculties was excellent experience. They don't want to push you to the limit but just want to know who you are. I found out the interview questions in the interview feedback of SDN are almost same questions in any book for the job interview. To prepare the UW interview, I suggest volunteering while you take prerequisite classes. Then, you can do the followings after you send your application to school: 1. check out any book for the job interview from your library and see the questions and the strategy.(Think the UW interview as a job interview) 2. Then, check out the sdn interview feedback. Pay attention to the spcific questions related to pharmacy practice.(At this point, you may need help from pharmacist or pharmacy students) 3. Read about the current issues about pharmacy. At interview, you need to be really "yourself". Think about all the possible questions when you prepare interview so you can answer almost spontaneouly but thoughtfully. Good luck for everybody!" Report Response
