What are your general comments?

"Someone mentioned a "rude" interviewer, and I'm positive he was among the three who interviewed me. He wasn't really rude, he was just frank and trying to get to what you're trying to say past that handy spiel you memorized. They were all nice and answered all our questions fully and honestly. People complained about the fact that the interviews were done in group format, and I was nervous at first, but it turned out to be an informal discussion type of thing. The writing sample completely threw me off; the questions weren't pharmacy-related at all!" Report Response
