What are your general comments?

"This interview was my last one and my best one because I felt most at ease. I prayed and really God answered my prayers. I was "lucky" with my interviewers b/c they were very nice, but I've come to the conclusion that if your interviewer has a mean or weird look on his face, it's probably not you but him/her. They asked sooo many questions-I think like 5 each. Situational, team work q's, resume q's, pharmacy q's. My best advice would be to go to as many interviews as you can or just practice with as many different people as you can (authority figures maybe), and do studentdoctor.net. I started looking over the q's in the airport and in the hotel before I fell asleep. Get to know the city and relax before the interview. And get to know your peers b/c they're just as nervous as you and you can relax as you guys talk." Report Response
