Prepare to Interview

When you get the call, it's time to prepare for your face-to-face interview on one of our TTUHSC-SOP campuses. For some, this  interview may be the hardest part of the application process, but our staff will be with you every step of the way to help you through it. 

A Few Tips:

  • Dress professionally When you look professional, you act professional. However, be sure whatever you wear is comfortable and that you feel good about the way you look.
  • Be on time If you feel rushed or start late, it sets you up to feel frazzled! Get a good night's sleep the night before and be ready to go.
  • Be honest If you do not know how to answer your interviewer, tell him or her you don't know. Faculty interviewers will know the difference if you answer dishonestly. If the interviewer asks about you or your desire to be a pharmacist, be sure you have something to say!
  • Look people in the eyes
  • Relax The interview day will be hectic and you will feel drained by the time it ends. But remember, we haven't lost anyone yet!
  • Ask questions While you are on campus, you will be treated to a tour of our facilities and you will be provided with opportunities to ask questions of our students, faculty and staff. 

What to Expect on Interview Day

You will be guided step-by-step through the interview process by our friendly and compassionate staff. As a candidate, you will enjoy a hands-on anatomy lab demonstration and watch current students demonstrate patient counseling, immunizations, bone density testing and blood glucose screening. During the assessment phase, you will participate in a one-on-one interview with faculty and a team scenario-based learning activity with faculty members.
