Does anyone know if we’re allowed visual aids for the presentation portion of the interview?
@Phar2018 yes, someone even brought a volleyball when I interviewed.
Hey!! Is anyone else missing the Microbiology prereq and know a school offering it online this summer? Thanks!
Thanks for replying! Is it an all day event like some interview processes or is it just the interview and then the FSA? I have a lot of time between my interview and FSA so I'm trying to plan out my day.
Nope, there's nothing between the interview and FSA. You'll be able to hang out in the pharm school lobby if you want, but most people leave and come back.
hi my interview time conflicts with my exam on friday, i've emailed them about it but i haven't received a reply.
Is anyone else experiencing a similar situation?
I am interviewing at UBC on Sunday so I had to be at Waterloo on the Friday or else I would not have been able to fly to BC for Sunday. I wrote to them a week before interviews came out asking them if I did have an interview if it was possible for them to put it on the Friday, and when I received my interview it was at 10:00 AM on Friday!
How are you guys preparing for this interview?
You sound like an upper year, how do you suggest we prepare for the FSA?
You probably don't need to study for the FSA. Just be prepared to write quickly, as the test is a little long for the time given.
There's more detailed discussion of the FSA in previous years' threads.
is the interview open file?
hi can someone please add me to the Facebook group page! How are people preparing for the FSA and interview process?
Hey can someone add me to the facebook group page please!
Would someone be able to add me to the facebook group as well?
Also for anyone who did the CECA mock interviews at Waterloo, did they help you feel more prepared at all?
Is anyone able to add me to the FB group chat? Please send me a message.
Hey! Can I be added to the FB group chat as well? Thank you so much
Can I be added as well please??
Can I be added as well to the group chat? Message me for my name please.Thank you and goodluck with your interviews guys!

Can someone add me to the Facebook chat as well? Thanks.
msg me ur facebook name and I can add you
It’s all relative! They said interviews typically go between 30-40 min, but everyone’s different and time isn’t important so much as the quality of your answers. Hopefully it’ll be ok!
To be honest I didn’t prepare for the FSA at all (I heard some people say they did some math practice beforehand, but it’s simple fractions and percent concentrations). I wrote it on Friday and for the most part it was just a bit of a time crunch! The reading component took the most time and math was the fastest.
In terms of interview, It’s typical situation based questions and the best way to prepare is to just have some experiences in mind for the typical questions they can ask “tell me about a time when...” etc etc I found that prepping for the presentation was the hardest part as we needed to really know ourselves and be able to talk about something other than our resume. At the end of the day, you just gotta be confident and hope for the best!
Good luck to whoever still has the interview and I hope all goes well!
since everyone is done now....how do you guys feel about your interviews and FSAs?
FSA science article was difficult, I left it til the end of the FSA and ran out of time. tried my best to answer the questions tho
Yeah I agree it was hard to understand :/ were you guys able to answer all of the questions tho?
The FSA was hard. I left 45 min for the article and still struggled to finish. I focused on the questions that were worth the most marks but I did make sure to write something for each qs... it's also hard to read slowly and comprehend anything when you know your running out of time lol.
Like someone said above I think the best way to prepare for the interview is not to have answers for specific questions but to have a list of experiences/examples in your head that you can apply to any question they throw you.
can I be added to the fb group as well?
Hi everyone! I was wondering if someone found an equivalent course to BIOl240 offered this summer?
I did mine online at Athabasca U (BIOL 325). However, there's a mandatory 4-day lab component and you will have to check if it's offered near you.
Hey! I'm taking mine at Dalhousie via online courses but the class already started. In my search though, I found it's also offered at University of New England 100% online! Good luck
For everyone that got an interview, what was your GPA? And how many EC's did you put? I am hoping to apply for the class of 2023 and would like to know what I should aim for. My GPA is a 3.6 right now and I am currently a pharmacy assistant, and doing at least 3 EC's at school.
Can you guys still access the AIF? I can't anymore...
I can still access it on Quest. I can't edit it though of course.
1 day left! Good luck to everyone!
