What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing interseting. I got someone who asked very basic questions: why did you chose pharm school? Tell me about yourself. Tell me about your e.c.'s. Challenges in the present and future? etc. How do you plan to deal with these challenges. Do you speak spanish (I said I was working in a spanish speaking enviormen in my esssay) They make you submit a 300 word essay for the interview and thats all the info the interviewer has on you. I told them I knew a lot about SC after working for an alumnus so they asked me what I knew about the school. ANd they asked me what other schools I have applied to. And "tell us what you want us to remember you by." Beaucse I made many specific referances to my work exp. (i.e. diabetic care) they asked if I knew what area of pahramcy I wanted to go into?

What are your general comments?

"If you wanna chat with current students arrive early. People hangging out in the lobby. Mostly p-1 studnets. Be confidant when you get there. It has a lot to do with how you deliver your answers. In the nicest most humble way, BE CONFIDANT. (yeah, a bit oxymoronic but you get the idea). Be nice to evryone, you never know who you will run into in the hall, lobby, or parking lot. It might be the person that inteviews you. It happened to me! And if you know people at the school already then name drop if you can beacuse the interviewers propbably know them. The interview will go by SOOOO fast so make sure you know exactly what points you want to highlight before you go in. " Report Response
