What are your general comments?

"When I walked in I got a name tag and had to fill out some basic info. about myself. Then all of the students being interviewed that day had to go downstairs for the essay portion. The essay question was: name a time when you encountered a problem or situation when you had to ask a lot of q's. What was the problem/situation? How did you go about resolving it? What did you learn? What was the outcome? After the essay portion, all of the studnets went to a room to meet with the three interviewers (student, faculty member, and pharmacist). They each asked one question. After they asked their q's they asked if I had any q's. That was pretty much it. The people that interviewed me were friendly. That made the interview process much easier! " Report Response
