"How do you believe you will pay for pharmacy school here?" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"What type of pharmacy do you want to enter? (**BIG HINT**: unless you have had a tremendous amount of experience in a specific pharmacy setting, they are looking for you to say that you do not know what type of pharmacy you want to enter because your summer internships are for finding out which area you enjoy most. I told them this and got a huge, encouraging nod from the 2 students and the Director of Admissions. Later in the interview, I asked the 2 students if they knew yet what type of pharmacy they wanted to enter, and they did not know. However, I did mention which areas of pharmacy I believe I currently would enjoy most)." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Can you sing well? (In my application, I gave them an album that I had recorded at the piano a while back, and I soon learned the Director of Admissions was being cynical)." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Can you describe a specific leadership role of which the success of the event depended mostly on your actions?" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The friendliness of the faculty and the admissions staff." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That one of the student interviewers was extremely hot, and that I would have to concentrate a little harder to effectively answer my responses to her questions without staring at those gorgeous eyes too much." Report Response
