What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"There are three components of the interview: 1. Social - Five students with 3 interviewers from the college. 2. Group - Same five students with 4 interviewers (a current PharmD student, and three practicing pharmacists). 3. Individual - 1 student, and two interviewers (a practicing pharmacist and a professor.) The interview lasted about 2.5 hours. There is a welcome session to discuss any questions you may have about the college or the interview process. Each of the three interview sessions lasts 25 minutes. My advice is to practice answers to general questions and don't feel like you have to top everyone else's answer in the group session. You are judged individually, not in comparison to one another. " Report Response
