How did you prepare for the interview?

"I used the two minutes given before each interview to think of what I would say to each interviewer" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The feedback I got from each interviewer about my responses." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some of the questions they asked made me think that I was close to getting off-topic" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it would take 15 minutes to find a parking spot once I arrived on campus. As for the content of the interview, knowing the questions ahead of time probably would not have helped significantly, since my opinions about Facebook and Myspace would not change much, and the way that I can care about a person also would not change much. As for hands-on experiences and what a pharmacist does, I already knew from shadowing and watching pharmacy interns work with pharmacy managers." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews were actually fun. In the first two I was just talking to a professor, and then a student. With the third interviewer, it made me feel like I was her doctor or pharmacist as soon as I entered the interview room. Since the interviews were one-on-one, I was more able to focus on the only person I was talking to at the time." Report Response
