What impressed you negatively?

"nothing, I really liked it. There is really nothing to worry about. The interview is very laid back and is more like a conversation. I was very nervous for nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I did a lot of reading about pharmacy recent news topics in case they asked a question about it, but they did not. So I guess I did not have to do all that preparing, but that might have just been the person who interviewed me. Also, I did not know the interviews were one on one, which is a lot nicer than a whole committee of doctors asking questions. Also, the interviewer knows nothing about you, they have never seen your file." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"arrived a little early, signed in, waited until my writing assignment. You do that in a separate room with about 20 other people who have the same time as you. That takes about 45 minutes, the question is really easy. Then your interviewer comes and gets you and brings you to their office. She was very friendly and explained what her specific job was. Then she asked me some questions, it was more like a conversation. Then it was over and I followed her back to the lobby. After everyone in your group finishes their interview you have an informational meeting with the head of the department and some current students. After that, you go home. " Report Response
