Hi,
I'm sooooo excited, I received my first interview letter today for Touro University and I don't even know how to get ready for it. So please answer my questions.
1.) I'm planning to wear a grey suit with a red shirt inside, is the red shirt appropriate?
2.) I'm from Florida, the school is in California, if they ask me why I want to move to California for pharmacy school, what is the best answer I can possibly give them?
Is there any other information that will be helpful during my interview, any pointers will be appreciated.
Thank you so much.

1) Red might be risky. You can pull it off if your personality pulls it off. The guys I interviewed with did the whole black and white. Since I don't know you, I can't really give you a "Yes" or "No".

2) Why do you want to move to CA? I'm from CA and was asked why I wanted to move to MA. You can say stuff like wanting a change of scenary, be more independent, etc.

Touro will be a group interview. Be prepared to interview with 4 or 5 other people. They won't ask alot of personal questions, but do ask alot of ethical and "What if..." questions.

Prepare the: "Where do you see yourself in 10 years?" question.

Good luck! :)

I'm interviewing in 2 weeks and I was wondering how the group interview is like. Does everybody go around in a circle and answer the question presented? or does the interviewer ask each person a specific question?

My answer to the reason why I would move to California:

2 words: *Hint, Katy Perry song.*

Personally, I hate group interviews because some questions like "where do you see pharmacy in the future?" can sound the same after 4 people takes a shot at it. When I had mine, the panel will ask general (like tell me about yourself and why this school) and specific questions (based from your resume) for each student.

I forgot to mention that when it comes to asking the panel questions please come up with your own because at least one from your group will ask the exact question from SDN lol. True story!

I just got an interview invite yesterday :) but the email said you could schedule any of the available dates but not what the specific dates were. for people who already interview, how many choices did you get? I tried replying to the invitation email but it gives me this weird message about my email being deffered and for me to not send it again.


blah, i hate leaving voicemails on answering machines, that always feels so awkward. maybe i should try calling again on monday

When I received their email, I called them to schedule for interview. They will disclose the dates through via phone. :) Give them a call. Their interviews dates are on Wed/Thurs.

Congrat! :thumbup:
