What are your general comments?

"There were 3 other people that interviewed the same day as me. First we did the essay for a half hour. Apparently everyone had a different question. My question had nothing to do with pharmacy. I think that they just want to make sure that you can write effectively, so read the question carefully and plan out what you're going to write. Don't try to write too much and keep an eye on the clock to give yourself enough time to proofread. After the essay, we had the school tour and then we just sat there and waited for our interview time. I wish there was some sort of refreshments or something to do because just sitting there I got a little hungry and bored. When I first got into the interview I was very nervous but after a couple of questions I relaxed and felt good about the whole experience. They even pour you a cup of water. Make sure you know your application inside and out because the questions they ask come from what you wrote in your essays and the other information in your application. The questions also build from your answer to the previous question. Just be yourself and confident in your answers. They ask some difficult questions so before answering gather your thoughts in your head then answer. Overall it was a tough interview but good experience for me!" Report Response
