What are your general comments?

"I was surprised by the fact that I was interviewed in a conference room with the dean of the pharmacy school and 4 other pharmacy faculty members. I am a pretty confident person and perform very well during interviews, but this interview, by far, has been the only one to have me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The staff were extremely friendly and they all asked their own questions. They just wanted to make sure that I can handle the workload and that I am truly pursuing pharmacy for the right reason. Overall, though, it was an enjoyable experience. I was their very first interviewee for the very first interview day for the upcoming school year. You get to pick your interview date...pick it as early as possible because getting into pharmacy school is extremely competitive!!!" Report Response
