Informal Mock interview questions with my own (in my head) self and with my wife. Life Experiences! Relaxed too:)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The curriculum. I knew about it before but learned even more about it during the welcome session! I am very impressed with the curriculum." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They do leave the "what will happen to you after the interview" timeline/etc. more up in the air from how it was explained previously. I do though excuse them somewhat because because Vanessa (the pharmacy admissions guru) has left for a new job and they are still in the process of that transition." Report Response

"well, just a reassurance that faith in God's will deliver's peace and joy!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good. I had two pharmacists interview me. I only somewhat bumbled one question (which was actually the one I was most prepared for - go figure!). All in all it went great! Good info for those still to interview this year: It appeared to me that the interviewers had a list of 25 or so possible questions in front of them. They will choose 5-6 off that list to ask you. Also other questions will be embedded as a second part to a question or feed off of your answers to their questions. Be as ready as you can but don't stress too much. Scan the Pacific SDN threads here in interview feedback and the SDN pre-pharmacy forum. Also prep for common school/job interview type questions." Report Response
