How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN, which didn't help since there's nothing here for UF. Looked over the school website (which didn't do much either to be honest). Main prep was retrospection of previous interviews and made sure to do it as best as possible this time after learning mistakes." Report Response

"The new HPNP building is nice, clean and well-lit. Lots of pharmacy organizations you can get involved with. Dr. McKenzie (sp) is very friendly and makes you feel at ease at once. TUITION" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The older Communicore building, the dim lights throughout that building. The 24/7 study room. Gainesville itself is a stifling little town and it's too hot." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would get a blister on my ankle and have to limp on tour like an idiot. That all the interview questions are hypothetical." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Since there are so little posts for UF I decided to share my experience. All the questions are hypothetical, situational questions about your reaction to conflict and emotions. My interview was 15 minutes w/ two faculty members. Then a tour for 45 minutes. Breaks before the interview, after the interview, and after the tour. Half the buildings are new, the others old. The library isn't that nice, the undergrad ones on campus are better. The 24/7 study room for health professional students looks like a dungeon and the lighting is bad. Weather is too hot in Fl, and I don't particularly like Gville because it is such a small *hick* town. I'd rather live in a big city and interact with lots of diverse people and culture. That being said, UF pharm school is ranked nationally very well, the tuition is cheap, and people are friendly." Report Response
