How did you prepare for the interview?

"It really doesn't matter. If you graduated from certain ''popular'' universities, you can find out what are some of the questions. If you didn't, then, May the force be with you and if you are Star Trek fan: Live long and prosper. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Staff and faculty were honest and direct about its accreditation status and their school's perception. They didn't dress anything up and I didn't feel like I was mislead. That is a huge plus!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There were 2 interview groups. It was odd that one group had all the UCLA and UCSD students while the other group had everyone else. To my surprise, if you were placed in a particular group, some questions were the same as posted on sdn or other prepharm school sites (you know which sites I'm talking about). From what I had heard, if you were placed in the other group, you were basically screwed. I will leave it up to the reader to speculate if group placement determines success in the interview." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Accreditation status is not guaranteed once the school graduates its first class. I.E. UCSD did not gain its full accreditation status with its first graduating class. Go Tritons - In 2008" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I knew what I was getting into when I applied and interviewed at Touro. However, the interview seemed odd. They said that the interview will primarily test the candidate's ability to communicate effectively. If that were so, then it shouldn't matter if you answer a question wrong. However, the interviewer seemed to be really disgusted and upset at a few candidate responses. They should make up their minds. All the other California Pharm schools like to be spoon fed the same answers but presented in a different way (I.e. I want to be a pharmacist cuz I really wanna help people, but I don't wanna help people if I can't use it on PharmCAS or call myself doctor). If that is the case, then just say it." Report Response
