What are your general comments?

"UCSF was a lot harder than the others schools for me because my interviewers never asked me the standard interview questions: ie Why pharmacy? Why UCSF? What pathway, ect... Everything they asked me came from my essays and the questions weren't hard but I didn't have great answers for them. It wasn't something I could prepare for (perhaps they felt that I was too prepared for a typical interview and wanted to give me a hard time). The student seemed nice, but the faculty had this disgusted look on her face and acted like she completely hated me. I never felt comfortable at the interview and we never really had a conversation going- it was her throwing questions after questions at me and it seemed like nothing I said was good. The only time I ever felt that I could breathe was when I asked the questions. In the end, though, I did manage to get accepted, however :-)" Report Response
