What are your general comments?

"my interview was worse than any other interview i had for pharm school, and i had several. i also busted out a horrible joke to break the ice and i really regret it. they laughed but i wished i hadn't been so chummy. the interview was more like a conversation so it flowed pretty well, but it feel like they were playing good cop-bad cop with me. also, the writing portion was tougher than other schools. it's after the interview so it made me even more nervous. i assumed i wouldnt get accepted, but i got in!! i found out a week ago... ;0). Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to the maddness. you just have to keep your fingers crossed." Report Response
