What was the most difficult question?

"What does it mean to be a professional? (I know it sounds strange but think of a typical answer in your head. Now answer and have another interviewer tell you your mechanic should also be trustworthy, a good member of the community and all the other things you just said. So then they asked me how a pharmacist and a mechanic differ.)" Report Response

"SDN.net, friends who interviewed before me, practicing possible answers" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is really beautiful and the administrative assistant in the waiting room was really great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers were very unfriendly, including an Associate Dean who I had previously thought very highly of. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"For years I had thought KU was the only school for me. If I had known the school would be so difficult and the interview process would be so cold I would have applied to more schools. Meeting 5 of the faculty members, one for the second time, I question if I would want to attend the university at all. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers were passing me file around and reading it as I was talking. Even when I tried to lighten the mood, there was not a single smile or friendly glance. When I answered, another professor would challange or just dismiss my answer. For one of the questions I apparently did not understand the answer they were looking for. They asked the questions 3 more times with the exact phrasing, much like a person who talks louder and louder to a non-English speaking person. I tried not to visibly show my frustration and be friendly and open but I was never given the opportunity to showcase my personality and ideals, the very thing I assumed the interview was for."
