What was the most interesting question?

"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.." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"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)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"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.." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"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..." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They had only 6 seats for transfers!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
