What are your general comments?

"I arrived and checked in with the receptionist. Shortly after, a student came to take me down to one of the faculty member's office, where I was interviewed by the student and faculty member. They asked a lot of typical questions, "Why pharmacy?", "Why Shenandoah?" and then loads of ethical questions. (For example, "If a pharmacist comes into work with alcohol on his breath, what would you do?", If you caught a student cheating, what would you do?") I felt like I did ok, but it was somewhat awkward because the student and faculty member literally read every question off a paper and while I was answering, they stared at me- cold face, expressionless- and therefore I felt myself fumbling over my words and second guessing my answers. They seemed like nice people but definitely didn't make the interview very easy! Next, the student took me around a tour of the school, library, main lecture hall and labs. Facilities were nice, clean and up-to-date and the student seemed enthusiastic and proud of Shenandoah. Next I went for my writing exam where I got to choose one of two questions "Do you feel that smokers should pay a higher premium on health insurance?" and "What does HIPAA stand for and what does it mean to you?" Once I was done with my essay, I turned it in to one of the receptionists and was done for the day! Overall, it was a good experience." Report Response
