"N/A" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that the interviewers were really friendly and not going to critique every answer I gave them. I read on SDN a comment someone else made about KU saying that they were really mean and criticized them for honest answers they gave, which made me WAY more nervous then I needed to be. It was not like that at all! I could tell they knew I was nervous and they tried to make me feel comfortable. I wish I had known they were that friendly before I went so I wouldn’t have freaked myself out so much." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My tips for preparing for the interview would be to… - practice out-loud so you get use to hearing your own voice -bring a resume and an official copy of your transcripts (It shows that you actually prepared yourself for the interview and it will make you stand out) I would suggest handing the resume to them after they ask “tell me about yourself?” or “tell me about your pharmacy experience?” then give them your prepared statement and add, “I also brought my resume if you would like to have a look at it?” The transcript might be a nice addition if it’s a closed file interview. - remember their names! It shows that you have a good memory which is what pharmacy is all about right? I would work it in at the end, like “It was very nice to meet you Mr. So and So” -Send them a thank you email afterwards, if you remember their names it will be easy to find their email address off of the KU School of Pharmacy website, they also include pictures next to their contact information in case you do forget names" Report Response
