What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Are you prepared for pharmacy school?" More from this Member | Report Response

"tell me your weaknesses and strengths and what attributes you think a pharmacist should have? it was funny. this one question has three embedded question in it. And after looking at the body language of my interviewers it became very hard for me to express myself freely. They seemed too tired to talk to me. And i wonder why in the world they embedded all those three questions in one if they did not have patience to listen somebody talking. I felt betrayed by luck. It was a complete waste of time to me. And i really wanted to post the feeback about South Dakota State University because nobody ever posted anything about this university. And I wish, my interviewers will someday read this feedback and try to improve their professional behavior for future interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitude of the interviewers. They seemed tired as if they had not eaten anything for lunch. While i was answering the question, one of the interviewer was staring something on the wall. I ignored that and focused on the interview. Again, i saw that she was still staring at something and was not listening to anything i said. I had really high hope with this school since that was the only pharmacy school in South dakota. I felt really bad at the end of the interview that these people expect us to be professional while they acted very unprofessionally. I am still waiting on their decision. Anyway, they did not impress me at all. and i do not feel like going to this school where i know those people will be giving me lecture on being professional.

"The town was really small. However, it seemed like a good living environment." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really, they are very informative and answer all your questions during the interview process." More from this Member | Report Response

"Had i known that they were too tired to even smile just once, i would never have scheduled for any time in late afternoon. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They are going to be tearing down and rebuilding the pharmacy school starting May of 08. Therefore, the next two years will be in transition and my classes would be located at various locations. Also, I was not aware that your first two years of the program are completed in Brookings and the second two are in Sioux Falls (With the last of those two being rotations)" More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very good school but I wish they had a better ranking. I got accepted though =)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like their approach. And knowing that they were the ones who would be lecturing in the class if i plan to attend this school made me almost sick. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews all lasted 30 minutes but because mine was the last of the day, we talked a bit longer. Really relaxed, they tend to be extremely defensive of their program. (More than I thought they would be). They acted astonished that I would be applying to other schools as well." More from this Member | Report Response
