    I have an upcoming interviw on thursday at MCPHS. I was wondering what type of questions are asked for the essay writings. I thought I heard they have 10 questions to choose from. If anyone remembers any of the essays I would appreciate the help. My interview is at the Manchester campus. I couldn't find any interview questions or essay questions for Manchester. Maybe they are the same questions for both campuses.

    I'm in the same boat with y'all but mine is in worcester campus. I just think if you read a couple of Pharmacy-related issues maybe online articles about drugs, you can be able to draw points from those readings. Goodluck y'all

    Essays were non-pharmacy related but it was very general. It serves to gauge your writing skills and see whether you are a fool or not lol. Obviously no writing point is wrong, as long as you can develop proof to support your response. Just look at it as a PCAT-type essay question and it's only a minimum of 1 and max of 2 pgs. I can't specify more than this but seriously, you will be a mule not to be able to come up with something tangible after all your life in college.

    when you interview at MCPHS you must sign a waiver stating that you will not discuss the interview with anyone else. i went to my interview not knowing what to expect. why do you think that you should have more help than i, or anyone else, did?

    seriously, chill. there's nothing to worry about.
