"The tour of the facilities. It was pointless. They showed us a couple classrooms, a wet lab, and a computer lab. Doesn't every college have those?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a relatively stress free interview. It was a behavioral based interview. The interviewer is more interested in how you communicate your skills and your experiences and how it positively effects you and the people around you. It's like your writing a paper, but the only difference is that you're orally presenting your situation. The writing session is the same way. The only problem is you get 25 minutes to effectively make your point. It was a little intimidating at first, but once I started to flow, I couldn't stop. Make sure your paper follows a logical pattern. Be aware that they are more interested in how you make a point rather than your knowledge about the pharmacy profession. Just be confident, honest and relaxed and you should do well. You should be able to leave the interview without any doubt. That's when you know you did well." Report Response
