One-on-one

What type of interview was it?

Closed file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Tell me about yourself & your background, why you are pursuing pharmacy, and why you chose UOP. (this was the opening question! I guess they wanted to get them all out of the way first!)" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"What do you think pharmacists do? (as in, what is their role in healthcare)" Report Response

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

"Describe a situation where you had to be compassionate to another person. Did the experience change your relationship with that person? (I can't remember the exact wording, but it was something along those lines)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Do you think pharmacists get the respect they deserve from physicians? Other questions included: Tell me about yourself; Why pharmacy? Why UOP?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Describe a situation when you had a disagreement with someone and how you worked it out. (Pretty classic question, but I couldn't think of a good example off the top of my head)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN interview feedback, mock interview with old boss, typed up answers to commonly asked questions, read over supplemental and pharmcas applications" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students all seemed really enthusiastic and happy to be there. There are so many extracurricular activities to get involved with. They provided cookies and water, which was a great snack in between all the activities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My faculty interviewer seemed a little bitter about pharmacy, either that or he was just playing devil's advocate during the interview. Either way, it threw me off a little bit. After reading these SDN reviews, I expected to get a really friendly interviewer." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Definitely get there 15-30 mins before your scheduled ''check-in'' time. My check-in was 12:30. I arrived at 12:15, and felt like I barely had enough time to use the restroom before they were seating us and handing out nametags. If you need to use the restroom, definitely do so before you check in. They didn't seem to be so flexible about letting people leave the room once they'd checked in." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I'm not sure how I did. It was my first interview, and I was pretty nervous! My faculty interviewer sort of threw me for a loop, but I think I answered the questions as well as possible, given the situation. I definitely feel better prepared for the next interview though!"
