What are your general comments?

"I arrived an hour early, and did the written section of the interview. There were two choices for the essay. I chose the topic of: Do you think personal values and professional values should ever be separated? If so when, why, etc. Then after completing that section, I had my interview with a student and facutly member. The interview went really well, I wasn't nervous and they talked to me as if I was one of their friends or colleagues. It's important to talk back and keep the conversation going so it's not just a "question answer" interview. The more you make it into a conversation, the better you will be scored. I would say it's important to emphasize things that the interviewer says that shows you understand exactly what it is they are talking about. During my interview, the faculty member told me " remember, there are no right or wrong answers here, these questions don't really apply to how you would be as a pharmacist in the real world". When you are in your interview, be aware of these little traps, once you answer a question, don't change it just because of a statement like this, just reinforce your answer again. BTW, I just got my e-mail of acceptance into this school. So Good Luck on your interviews!" Report Response
