"Describe a time you've acted as a role model." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"I forget...no really memorable questions here, just prepare for the normal blah questions...they don't end up asking too many since all three applicants take turns answering the same questions." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What is a current issue in pharmacy and what do you suggest should be done about it? (something like that)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Tell us about yourself and how you became interested in pharmacy. This question should be easy but its hard to keep it brief sometimes." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reading the interview feedback here, I interviewed at another school a week earlier which helped with the butterflies." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"They had a 3rd year student who ate lunch with us and was very friendly. He answered questions truthfully (no bs) and was a fantastic resource. They are also doing a lot of construction on campus that is supposed to finish up by next year, including a new rec-center, which will be cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was quite a bit of time where we just ended up sitting around. The other applicants were really friendly and fun to talk to, but just as I had read in other posts it seemed like there was a ridiculous amount of down time for having only 7 applicants at the interview day. If you don't value my time as a potential student what does that tell you about how it will be once I am a student there? Maybe that's a little harsh, but I wasn't terribly impressed with the day's set-up." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was thinking the cost was somewhere around $34,000 per year for three years, but it's more like $50,000 a year for 3 years...yes, there's the opportunity cost of getting a job a year later if you go to a traditional 4-year program, but this school is not cheap." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I thought the interview experience was terrible. Very impersonal. When you are with three other candidates for a ~40 minute interview you really don't have that much time to let the interviewers know who you are. I would much prefer a one-on-one set up or even have three interviewers asking me questions by myself rather than have 3 applicants interview at once, but that's just me. It really changes the feel of the interview having other applicants in there with you." Report Response
