I looked at the name of the two people interviewing me when I signed in, Tony mentioned one of them in the orientation presentation, so I knew a little bit about one of the interviewers before going into the actual interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interview was more like a conversation, they didn't drill me with questions. It felt like I was just talking with friends about what it is I had done in the past 4 years (in 30 minutes). We ran out of time and we couldn't cover everything in my application." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. Overall, it was a perfect interview day. I had a lot of fun, actually." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Don't pretend to be interested in something because you think that's what the Pharmacy School wants you to be interested in it. Be honest with yourself on what it is you want to do with your life. Have stories and details on personal experiences ready to go. The interviewers will remember you because of your stories." Report Response
