What impressed you positively?

"The level of professionalism expressed from most of the interviewers and faculty." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A few of the interviewers were fast to draw conclusions based on our answers and they were uncaringly fast at asking follow-up questions which felt like attempts to discredit our answers." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There were 10 interviewers. None of them had seen our resume so every interview was blind. 3 of the interviewers were students, 1 of them was faculty and the remaining 6 were practicing pharmacists." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone, with the exception of 2 of the interviewers, was polite and professional. Since I was nervous I didn't feel like I was able to truly express myself. Just be yourself because the interviewers will pry until they think they can see who you really are underneath your credentials. About 80% of the students there would have had a bachelor degree before their entrance to pharmacy school which gave them an edge when compared to my 2 years of community college. About 90% of the students wore black suits, including the women." Report Response
