What are your general comments?

"The interview is closed file....they dont see your transcripts. They do see your resume though. Two faculty and one student interview you. Pay attention to all the interviewers. Make eye contact to all. Ask them each a question when they are done asking you questions. I had Dr. Sam as an interviewer and he likes people with a sense of humor...so lighten up a little. The essay question was super easy. This interview and essay never expected you to know any current event information, so don't worry about the HOT topics of pharmacy for Western...its strictly social. Make sure you emphasize that you are a team-worker." Report Response
