What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Individual interview: they basically asked me why I wanted to be a pharmacist, what inspired me to do it, what are strenghts and weaknesses of mine, what situations have you been in where you had to improve on you weakness, what class have you had that has helped you outside of the classroom, what class have you had that you were dreading but wasn't so bad in the end, where else have you applied, etc." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Social interview: all they ask in that is to introduce youself, what are your hobbies/passions, what kind of community service have you been involved in/what community service would you like to be involved in." Report Response

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

"Group interview: introuduce yourself (again!), what do you see yourself doing in 10-20 years, what led you to pharmacy, and what concerns you about the job (since everyone in my group had worked in a pharmacy)." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What qualities make a great teacher?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Do you know any of the Pharmacy students who currently go here?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I talked with other pre-pharmacy students at my school about answers to possible questions and read this site." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"You get a free t-shirt at the end of the day (it's about a thousand sizes too big though)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was pretty hard to get a word in edgewise during the group and social interviews and when you finally get a chance to speak, then the interviewer will interrupt and try to change the question. Also, it seemed like pretty much everyone at my interview already had their degree or was planning on graduating this spring with a degree." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Dean and interviewers there were relatively nice but you could easily see past it. I could tell that they really didn't care about me because they were too busy caring about the reputation of their school. During the individual interview, it seemed like half of the time I was talking, they must have been thinking about other things because they would turn around and ask a question which I had pretty much already answered in the question before (especially when it came to activities and leadership things that I've been involved with)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Once you get there, the Dean asks everyone to introduce themselves (there were 15 people there) and then he speaks for about 30 minutes about the program and answers any questions that people ask. Afterwards, I went straight to my individual interview (with one faculty and one pharmacist) and that lasted 20-25 minutes, which was a little shorter than scheduled, but it was relatively laid back. Then, we (me and 4 other students) had the social interview (with one faculty and 2 third year pharmacy students) which lasted about 30 minutes. Lastly, we (me and the same 4 students) had the group interview with 4 interviewers where everyone sat at a round conference table and that lasted about 20 minutes. You'll have only 5 minutes between each interview." Report Response
