How did you prepare for the interview?

"Review questions, talk in mirror, write down my motivations for pharmacy and compare it to what I said in my personal statement, and review schools website. Applied to various jobs so I could stress test myself for behavioral questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"1 program on 2 campuses that interact together; yet the campus locations have very different communities that they impact. Great opportunities for students to learn from either one." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The choice of choosing between the two campuses. Food provided wasn't labeled (type of meat, etc.)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Apply early for top 15 schools." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, be yourself, the interview is for the faculty to know you better or disprove any red-flags in your application. That being said, you have to still prepare because some professors may be sorting through applications for grants and research so they might go through the standard questions.....or they may just not be that talkative in a conversation at all. So basically talking about yourself is easy....don't worry. But knowing how to effectively answer the behavioral questions is the hard and should be practiced." Report Response
