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

"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. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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. " Report Response
