"There are a number of factors that drive my passion for a career in medicine. If I had to pinpoint one main driver, I would say that helping others with chronic pain or a debilitating disease, is the most significant for me. Everyone deserves access to important medicine and I plan to live that mantra by being the best at what I do, and giving my all to my patients/customers, every day."

"Should I not be accepted into your pharmaceutical program the first time, I plan to reapply the following year. I would take the year to upgrade any required courses and prepare an even stronger application. My life's goal is to become a pharmacist and I certainly won't take one rejection as a final answer."
The interviewers want to know that you have thought out all options, and scenarios, in the event that you are not accepted to University of Charleston. The way that you answer this question will also show the interviewers that you have an interest in pharmacology that goes deeper than your acceptance into their school. If you are not accepted, show that you will then take a different path, as a pharmaceutical assistant or pharmaceutical sales representative, for instance. Or, you can let the interviewers know that one rejection won't stop you at all! Talk about your plan to reapply, if rejected. Whatever the path you would choose, it's important you show the interviewers that you have confidence, and drive. It'll take more than one rejection to keep you down!
