What impressed you negatively?

"I stayed a lot longer than I needed to because the letter was misleading" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you have an 8am interview, you'll be done by noon. I stayed there for 8 hours because the letter said try to say as long as possible as there are other events going on during the afternoon. All you really need is one hour writing, one hour interview, probably 1-2 hours for their workshop/tours and that's it. You should book an early afternoon flight." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was expecting a lot of situational questions but I think that depends on your interviewer. I had a pharmacoeconomics professor so I didn't get many situational questions (which I prepared for). Instead, there were more personal than situational." Report Response
