I have been giving interview for my Doctor of Pharmacy program since this February and I have been asked many different types of questions. I have asked scenario type, problem solving questions and many more, but most of them were common and here is list….
1. Tell me about yourself
2. Why do you want to be Pharm.D?
3. Why did you choose our college?
4. Tell me about problem you had and what you did to solve it?
5. Where do you see yourself in next 5 years?
6. What do you blog about? (LOL)
These were the only common questions they asked….Hope I get in Pharm.D program.
I recently read one African proverb and couldn’t stop myself to post on my blog. It was something like this:
“Don’t look where you fall, but where you slipped.”
This is absolutely true specially as college student.
When we get B in any class, we thing It is was we deserve. We can’t work harder than we are. Stop making excuse and go back in past and find reason to get B. What went wrong in your preparation and try to solve that and do your best in next exam.
Giving excuse is only going to make you weaker and weaker until, you will start counting yourself in loser’s list. It still not too late to start over and improve your mistake.
I am not talking about basketball or football game or war between two countries, I am talking about my opinion and experience on difference between culture, ideas and education system. I lived in India for 16 years and lived only three years in USA. I started to like in USA. My Indian friends mostly ask me this question “Which one do you like more: USA or India? I usually get confused because it is too hard to answer the question without talking side to particular country.
When I think about life in India, It reminds me of my old and fun days. I took all fun I can in India, and I am sure that I can’t get same fun here in USA in my entire life. Living in USA has its own benefits and opportunities. USA made me responsible, organized and professional man. Now, I can take care of my self and can be something I wanted to be in my life. In India, we think only about today, here we think about whole month and made plan ahead of something.In India, we take care of our friend which is plus point, on other side, here in USA…..People ask question like this when we ask for help….Who are you? Why should I help? In india, to get help, you doesn’t have to be friend.
So, If I have to choose one country for fun, I will choose India, but If I have to choose for lifetime settlement, I will prefer USA.
