    1. Are you familiar with Medicare part D that pays pharmacists for advising customers???

    Oh really. I did not know that pharmacists will be paid for adivising cutomer. Did you guys know that???

    2. Name one word that sums up your personality?

    ... Outstanding personality LOL

    3. A care requires maintenance such as regular oil changes. Like a car, what kind of maintenance do you require??

    .... I go to church and pray. Prayer has been included in the alternative medicine too. Several researches have shown that prayer works really well to increase the self efficacy. (sometimes i go to bar.. lol but can't state that in the interview) What you guys do?

    4. Are you proud of your grades?

    .... I am satisfied with my grades. (3.7+ is not the stellar or something i should be proud of.. thats how i feel)

    5. What is the one thing about you that you do not want me to know?
    .... typing speed. It is around 50 words/min which is not bad but i feel bad when my friends could type with the speed of 70+ in a min.

    6. if you could change something about yourself, what would it be?
    ...... Lose some wt., at least 35lbs.

    I hope pharm school will have more a conversation type interview that just looking at the sheet of questions and ask.

    Hey Kelly,
    I dont want to say that i have problem with procastinating or i am unorganized compared to others so just saying that i have problem with typing speed. LOL.
    The program that i am in right now. it extensively requires a good typing speed coz we are supposed to take all the notes in computer. and with that speed of 50 words per min i could not write everything i want to. So my notes are like .. only i could read. you know what i mean. no auxillary verbs or no pronouns lol...

    Kelly, what is the one thing about you that you do not want ad com to know???
    What you think?? What you want to tell them??
    I dont know but i feel this questin like a trap. I really did not understand the real motive of this question. What is that ad. com really wanted to know with the question. and how will you takle it?

    Dr. Biassi,
    Those questions were from Samford. One of my friend told me that they were known for such questions. They have one-on-one interview.
    I have a feeling that it would be very intimidating with these question and just one person staring at my eyes in a room with half closed door.

    Toyaboobear,
    Thats certainly something i would not tell them.... i do not have doubt on it.
    by the way, these questions are from Samford. I doubt they would even send application request to you if they happen to know that you have a long hair. LOL
    (just kidding).

    But is the rate of return equal to the amount of paperwork involved to seek reimbursement.


    Truth=cynnical, What I'd tell them= Thoughtful

    Sleep, a good computer game, and food.

    Considering the work involved to get them, sure.

    I hate school.

    Become more self-motivated.
