"How friendly everyone was and how much they seem to really want you to go there, and succeed and thrive. My interviewers seemed to have an attitude of "if/when we admit you, here's why you should come here over any other school" rather than "why should we admit you?" which was refreshing. Also I liked Manhattan a lot more than I expected, I thought it would be more rural." More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendliness and personality of my interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"The three interviewers were very into the interview. My family owns pet stores that sell animals, so I was paranoid I would be grilled about regulations and stuff like that. However, they did not project any personal opinions into their questions. So if a lot of your experience is in a part of the animal industry that does not have a positive light to the public (pet stores, some breeding, animal testing, slaughter houses, etc.), don't be too paranoid of how the questions are going to go."

"They were all just overall very friendly and conversational. The time went quickly, we actually went about 10 minutes over, and I felt I would have enjoyed staying and chatting with them for another hour. One prof asked me about being a pilot (not my former career, just an expensive hobby). I only mentioned that at one spot in an explanation statement in the VMCAS, so this showed me that he had read it pretty thoroughly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything about the school and the faculty" More from this Member | Report Response

"The people at this school are so warm and inviting!! There is a very real sense of community and connectedness among the students and the faculty.

More from this Member | Report Response

All notes are downloaded onto the Tablet PC's at the beginning of the year. I admire that consistency and devotion to technology. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone I met was incredibly helpful and the day flowed smoothly. I like the setup of the anatomy lab. Also, I appreciate that the complex is in one area, rather than spread out, and that students are encouraged to go into the clinic during the first year. " More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"All 3 interviewers never thought to introduce themself or their background, the questions were rapid-fire style, and they made it a point to identify a mistake on my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student panel I think could have been more diverse. I'm a non-traditional student so it would've been nice to have someone on the panel that also reflected that." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer joked about my undergrad major (which was not in hard science) and made me feel a little uncomfortable. Also I do have a strong science background." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing! I enjoyed the whole process with the student ambassadors and interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview room was cluttered. I was not given any information on tours being led by ambassadors." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Q&A session at the pizza party kind of dragged since they let each ambassador on the panel give their input on each question, rather than just having one or two people answer the question and then moving on. Also the pizza was Little Caesars and wasn't very warm, so that was disappointing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that the interviewers primarily focused on one aspect of my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"They asked me where I see myself in 10 years. I replied either in (career choice) or getting a phd. They seemed upset, like I had implied their dual degree program would take that long when I only thought I would still be doing a phd if I uad not gotten accepted into the dvm/phd program" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview weekend seemed relatively disorganized, could have been organized better. There was no financial aid information, and no organized tours either." More from this Member | Report Response

"Little direction prior and immediately after the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"They did seem to take certain things I said with a grain of salt, as if I was over exaggerating. I gave an example of a dog we saw at the clinic that ended up having to be euthanized, but I didn't put that specific story in my experiences. One interview pointed out that it wasn't listed, and all I could say is that I simply hadn't written it down in the application because it was a detail, not a broad generalization of my experiences." More from this Member | Report Response

"How many people were being interviewed for so few spots." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student ambassadors seemed enthusiastic during the party but afterward some of them changed attitude completely." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of diverse available programs (i.e. not many international opportunities unless you pursue/set up something yourself through another school or program)." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's kinda in the middle of nowhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are older" More from this Member | Report Response

"during the pizza party, the dean had talked about k-state being a non-terminal school. i never thought about it in depth too much until then. i, personally, would prefer learning on a live, beating animal for the sole purpose of teaching than having someone's beloved pet be the first true surgery i perform." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really. It was still a little stressful because it was my first interview and by nature these situations are nerve-racking." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. It was hard to tell how busy the hospital was since it was virtually empty. Maybe it was because it was a break/weekend?" More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no mention of a tour; therefore, I did not get to go on one before leaving town." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. I wish there had been more going on in the hospital. On the tour we just peered into a bunch of dark rooms so it was hard to imagine it when its really busy." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no orientation or info session interview weekend. I would have liked if they had done something like this to get students more excited about attending. The only info I had on the school was what I saw online and what I heard from students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities are pretty old and worn. My tour guide didn't know anything." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is NOTHING going on in Manhattan." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers, the local vet, was kind of dull and did not really seem like she wanted to be there. The two professors were obviously familiar with my file and they asked me questions that were tailored toward my experiences. The local vet asked only a couple of stock questions that she could have asked anyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much diversity in the area" More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't feel the student tour guide was equipped to answer some of the questions I had." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities are kind of older" More from this Member | Report Response

"The thought of out of state tuition.. but otherwise nothing really comes to mind." More from this Member | Report Response

"The town. So small and somewhat lacking in diversity" More from this Member | Report Response

"No public transportation...most of the students have cars...surprising for a school with a larger population." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very short. I was the last person in a long day but would have appreciated being given the full amount of time to impress them." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wasn't terribly impressed with the modern-ness of their facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer was staring at the ceiling while I responded to a question. That's about as bad as it got." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seemed a bit weird." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview weekend could have offered a few more scheduled activities for applicants since we did come all that way." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like I did not get to say as much in my interview as I wanted to; I guess it seemed too short to me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wish the interview was a bit longer so that I had time to ask more than 1 or 2 questions to them" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the questions that people asked at the Q&A session, the students wouldn't answer them directly. They would answer a question, just not the exact one the person asked." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviewers were distracted during my interview by my application on their laptops" More from this Member | Report Response

"Huge number of people applying :(" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish the hospital had been open when I was there or that more students were around (it was still winter break and on the weekend). Everything seemed very empty when I was there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of presence outside of the conference room where we checked in. It was on the fourth floor and there was only a sign on the ground floor." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I was not able to see more of the school on the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"the town of Manhattan" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing about the school was negative to me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the people interviewing that weekend turned me off but everything else was wonderful." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is outdated, and the town is dirty. Coming from the midwest and a small town I thought I would really love it, but I did not like it at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"The streets in Manhattan were too big. I know it's ridiculous, but I'm a country New Englander and I don't like roads with too many lanes. At least they do their job of keeping traffic moving..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, I guess I could get picky and say that the buildings looked kinda old, but it really wasn't a big deal" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviewers really seemed to have a problem with my lack of food animal experience which didn't put me at ease, like a lot of the other students are saying they were." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was a little dated -- otherwise, I don't really have any negative feelings towards K-State." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm kind of lukewarm about the interview. I thought it would be more relaxed like people made it sound." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had 6 hours after my interview and tour before the pizza party. Also, the school is 2 hours from the closest airport. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"The cold weather, but there's heater everywhere indoor. So it's really no big deal." More from this Member | Report Response

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

"not much to do before you interview, wish they had student organization info." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was Saturday so the teaching hospital was closed so we didn't get to see much of it on the tour. The town is small and would probably be boring living there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"There didn't seem to be much going on or many people around at the hospital. It was a Sunday, but they do see emergencies. I guess I just expected it to look busier!" More from this Member | Report Response

"A time line for the interview, tours, presentations wasn't given ahead of time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The 2hr drive from Kansas City to Manhattan." More from this Member | Report Response

"I knew Manhattan was going to be small, but now I know it's definitely not for everyone (haven't decided personally yet). There is one strip of bars/activities, and...not much else outside of campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing -- it was a really good experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities and town are dated." More from this Member | Report Response

"Manhattan itself is a very small town, and is a little run down looking. It's also not placed very close to any larger city, which could be a problem for some folks." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really... if anything just that the facilities looked a little old. But it's nothing to complain about when everything else seems awesome!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The town of Manhattan is quite small. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not too keen on the location, but it's not the worst place either. " More from this Member | Report Response

"study up on random facts for the interview, thats all they really care that you know" More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was possibly due to the fact that I had to do a phone interview rather than in person, but my interview was less conversational that I had been expecting. They were" More from this Member | Report Response

"My visit to K-State made me even more excited about vet school and this school in particular. It's a very family-oriented campus and everyone seems supportive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great University! The faculty I met and students as well were all so amazing and helpful! Everyone wants you to succeed and I hope I get to call this place home the next four years!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Really comfortable interview, it is completely conversational and the questions I was asked all came from an organic conversation we were having. Just be yourself, but make sure you know your application 100% because all of my questions were tailor made for me, and me alone. It sounds silly to "know your application", but its easy to forget the smaller things you wrote about." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the whole interview process! For me, none of the questions on here helped prep me for the interview. It was geared all around things from my application. I had a very conversational interview and time flew by during it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewers did not sit in a single row, so I had to be sure to take turns providing eye contact. This interview style was more of a circular seating format." More from this Member | Report Response

"Buildings lookkinda gloomy, but other than that every other aspect of this school and manhattan seemed really nice" More from this Member | Report Response

"KSU is a great school, and the fact that they have a traditional program is really appealing to me. I like having everything organized and PBL does not sound fun or informative to me, so K state has a program that is in line with me. Most expensive option that I applied to this cycle, but I love the program and the faculty so if I get accepted I would seriously consider going." More from this Member | Report Response

"Be knowledgeable about your application. Don't really try to memorize the answers to questions either. I got, "Animal rights vs. animal welfare" and blanked, so I had to quickly switch to plan b (which worked out in my favor anyway)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was one of the most expensive schools but the facility and the hospital equipments appeared to be older and worn." More from this Member | Report Response

"After attending their pizza banquet and tour of the school, I am highly interested in this school" More from this Member | Report Response

"I expected my interviewers to be very relaxed and friendly based on what I read on SDN. One of my interviewers was awesome, but the other two were not as friendly as I had anticipated (I am not sure if this was intentional or not.... My interview was also at 8 AM). HOWEVER, do not let this intimidate you! It went very well and I was accepted :) They really just want to get to know YOU." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it went fine. Even though I couldnt answer a few of the interview questions I got accepted!" More from this Member | Report Response

"i know i would love k-state and be very happy to obtain my dvm there. i like their pc tablets in conjunction with the curriculum (3+1) layout, and having all the veterinary related buildings connected. the second and fourth year buddy system seems like something i would use to my advantage. what worries me is my significant other. he was talking to an ambassador during my interview and learned there isn't really much for jobs outside of retail. what can you expect from a college-town, though? at least the school has experience with students being outside of the city in order to meet middle ground with their spouses working elsewhere; though you will need arrangements during on-call rotations fourth year." More from this Member | Report Response

"K-State was a really pleasant surprise. The interview process was much less intimidating than expected and the facility members were very genuine and kind!" More from this Member | Report Response

"A laid back, great interview. I feel like they really saw me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall fantastic interview. The interviewers ask very thoughtful, career-related questions, so be prepared for that. However, they did not bring up any controversial issues, even though I did." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was definitely an interview, but it wasn't too stressful. There were 2 faculty members and a local vet. They were friendly and joked but they always were very professional and focused on getting the answers to their questions. They left a lot of time for me to ask questions, so I was happy I had thought of some beforehand." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seems like it is well run. The clinical case load is non existent. I would want to go to a school that can offer a higher case load." More from this Member | Report Response

"After the interview at Kansas they take into account your entire file and your interview when they rank the applicants. This hurt me because I have a weak GPA. I am on the alternate list at the moment, but I felt like my interview went well. I don't know the formula that they use, but this all leads me to believe that the interview is not a huge part of the final evaluation. If you have strong numbers--you're in luck (as always)! Your interview is probably not going to make or break their decision. If your numbers are weaker do your best, but judging by my experience grades still play a big part in the evaluation post-interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think it is a fabulous school where you can get a great education, im not sure it was for me. Many people seemed very food animal, small animal, or zoo exotic focused. I didn't meet many people interested in or faculty from the equine department." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much goes on other than the interview and the tour. No informational meetings during the day at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"For my 1st interview experience, I loved K-State. It was very relaxed. The interviewers aren't trying to trick you. Everyone is extremely helpful and one of the friendliest towns I've been to." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax! It was very laidback and they did not try and trick you." More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely worth the trip to Kansas. The town is cute and the people super friendly, and the cvm is very well organized." More from this Member | Report Response

"(THIS PART OF) KANSAS IS NOT FLAT. THE WIZARD OF OZ IS A LIE. I can't express what a shattering of childhood dreams this was." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm an odd ball because at the time of my interview I was uncertain how I felt about k-state. I had a really odd gut feeling at the time I couldn't describe as good or bad partially do to other things that were going on at the time. Now I'm a student here and it is a great school. The student body is great and just at K-state in general I've never been around so many people with so much school spirit. People from big cities may not like the small town feel but for me K-state is a great fit. Just stay relaxed and be yourself in your interview and you shouldnt have a problem." More from this Member | Report Response

"After visiting Manhattan and attending the Q&A session (pizza party) I began to really like the school and town." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour was nice; had one-on-one tour with a student ambassador. Interviewers were nice. Students went out of their way to assist interviewees, esp. those who were traveling by themselves and needed rides to the hotel or airport" More from this Member | Report Response

"I very much enjoyed the campus and the students. Manhattan has a lot more stuff in it than I expected. The buildings look well used but do not appear deficient in anything." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great place!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first vet school interview, and overall I don't feel it could have gone any better. Seems like some adcoms really put you through the wringer, but this was not like that at all. It was good to have a good experience my first time, and I feel that should help improve my confidence for any future interviews. I could be very wrong, nothing is certain in this process, but I feel I improved my chances with this interview and I will be extremely surprised if I don't get an offer." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very pleasent and casual. Anyone else interviewing at this school should do their best to remain calm and be prepared to speak in a converstaional manner. Answer honestly and be prepared to talk about ethical/ moral topics. There aren't necessarily wrong answers to these questions but a strong and well thought out response will be in your favor. Good luck to all interviewees!! Also, for OSS travelers, there is an airport in Manhattan and the staff/ students are very willing to shuttle interviewees to and from the airport/ hotels. However, it is a small airport and only receives flights from limited airports so it can be a longer trip or more expensive due to increased number of flight connections." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school. The commitment to helping students succeed, the case load, the zoo and exotics opportunities, and the wonderful community moved Kansas State to the top of my list." More from this Member | Report Response

"Feels like a great place to be!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was really impressed with the area, I thought it would be way more podunk" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school and interview session was run efficiently, I just wish that they made me feel as comfortable as they made everyone else." More from this Member | Report Response

"<3! Really appealing area, I loved the country around K-State. It's NOT flat at all, rolling hills and prairie kind of looking. Faculty and students were super nice and laid back, the interview was pleasant. No "stump the chump" questions!" More from this Member | Report Response

"True as I've been told, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot to do in town. Ethnic food is lacking, which is sad for me because I typically enjoy a lot of that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved it. Loved the school, actually enjoyed my interview. There were no off the wall questions, nothing that really stumped me. I was surprised they didnt bring up my grades or my GPA or anything like that. There were a few questions about various experiences, and a few strictly behavioral questions. Only current events question was regarding horse slaughter, although a few other topics just came up in the course of the conversations." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very laid back, they didn't ask any tough questions at all, and most of them were directly related to my application. I had several questions that were simply, "Tell us about this experience..." but having questions that were so open ended did throw me off a little I think" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first vet school interview. Overall, I was really pleased with the school facility and the people. The interview was very conversational. The interviewers have already read your file and they seemed like they genuinely just want to know more about you personally." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't worry. They really just want to get to know who you are. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked KSU and the interviewers were super friendly. My interview was just like a conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"There are tours running throughout the day every 2 hours or so. If you get there early enough you can go on a tour before your interview, or you can wait around after your interview and go on one. They take your picture, have you input your preferred address to send your letter to, and have a Tablet PC out to try. Other than your interview, that's really about it. There are current vet students circulating around while you are waiting and they will answer any questions. They also take you to your interview room and take you on your tour. There is a pizza party later in the evening that is casual where you can ask current vet students questions. Overall it is very laid-back, so don't worry too much!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I knew I liked the program before I went to visit, but I was even more impressed than I expected to be! There seems to be a very strong emphasis on student support and future career success. My impression was that if something you're interested in is not available on their campus, the faculty/staff will help you find it somewhere else." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had three interviewers, two professors and a local veterinarian. For the most part, they said things like, "I see you have experience in calving, tell me more about that." And drew out questions from those topics, like how my quail experience related to Prop 2. I was very nervous just prior to the interview but the relaxed environment and nice interviewers made me calm down. Also, if you plan to fly into the Manhattan Airport, leave plenty of time for delays. The flight to/from MHK was delayed for several hours each time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Know your application and current issues. They really just want to get to know you and the 30 minute interview goes by really quickly. Just be yourself and you will do fine. If you can't get all your questions answered in the interview there are lots of students around before and afterward to answer questions that you may have." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very impressed by the facilities, and students and faculty that I met. They have a great program and everyone there seems genuinely thrilled to be a part of it. The interview was laid back and conversational, and my interviewers seemed like they wanted to get to know me. They were very familiar with my application and asked me specific questions about several of my experiences. Overall, everything went well and it was a really good time." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was really surprised at how many questions I was asked off my application. I was expecting a lot of stock-type questions, but was impressed that they had actually looked at my application and thought about questions to ask me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview went by really quickly and I kept thinking of things that I wish I would have said, but overall it was a positive experience. I thought that it was really nice of the school to host a pizza party for the interviewees and also them to ask questions of the faculty and current students. Manhattan is really small, but it is totally worth moving there because the atmosphere at the vet school is very welcoming and encouraging." More from this Member | Report Response

"You sign in, get your picture taken (which fyi will be your picture ID for the next 4 years if accepted), learn about the computers and then talk to students while waiting for the interviewers to be ready for you. As I said before everyone was very friendly and outgoing. You are interviewed by 2 faculty members and 1 local vet and everyone knows your application very inside and out. There was a tour given after the interview and a pizza party on Saturday night. The pizza party was a Q&A session and very helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was such a laid back experience, it really spoiled me. I talked to many student ambassadors before the interview, which put me at ease. My interviewers were extremely friendly and it flew by!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was somewhat negatively impressed by the town, but very positively impressed by K-State. The people, the research, the programs, the facilities, it all was great. The interview itself was very low stress, much more conversational than you would imagine an interview to be. There were plenty of follow-up questions within the context of the conversation (tell us more about this, etc.) but on the whole it flowed very easily." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview so I was definitely a little nervous. But all the interviewers were super nice and friendly and asked fairly general questions about my experiences, current events, and opinion questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Got there 30 minutes early. They took my picture and then showed me the computers all student will get. Taken to outside the interview room where I waited until on of the interviewers came and got me." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a really laid back experience. You go to a room and sign in and write down the address you want your acceptance/rejection sent to. Then you have your picture taken and someone is there to show you the Toshiba Tablet computer that you would get as a vet student. There are cookies and pop avaiable. Then you wait until it is your time to interview when you are led by a vet student to the interview room. I was interviewed by 2 KSU faculty members and 1 practicing Kansas Veterinarian. Then an optional student led tour was given. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great time and can't wait to start there this fall. Overall, it was the least stressful experience possible. They really made us feel welcome. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very laid back and easy environment. I got asked two questions about current diseases, which I knew about, and other than that they mainly just focused on my application and said good things about me." More from this Member | Report Response

"very positive. the faculty were so nice and friendly. very conversational. not stressful at all. they were all 'get-to-know-you type' questions. it was like talking to a new friend that you just met." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relaxed, friendly, laid-back and low stress. It was really a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Experience was overall positives, the interviewers were generally nice although sometimes didnt seem intereseted in being there. Had a chance to talk with other applicants and their families and were very friendly. Make sure you get there early just incase the airport gets snowed in like it did right after I flew in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid-back and informal, with questions ranging from difficult ethical questions to getting-to-know you questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I came out feeling really confused. One interviewer seemed really interested while the other made no eye contact. He did respond to alot of things I said though. The current students at KSU were incredibly friendly. They made me feel right at home. My overall interview was mainly ethical questions but I have heard that each panel is different." More from this Member | Report Response

"I went from having a neutral view on Kansas to loving the school. It's in a really small town but it's a college town and I think thats part of the school's charm." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, very impressive tour and interview. Faculty were knowledgable and freindly. The campus is beautiful and the opportunities for research are many. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Simple and to the point. It was overall informative and a nice time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Went to a waiting room and checked in and had my picture taken. There were snacks, drinks, and vet students there to answer questions. Then at my time I was taken by a vet student to a couple of chairs outside the room I was to interview in. The vet student stayed until I was called in. Then I went in, met all of the interviewers (2 faculty, 1 practicing vet). Then they began by having me tell them about myself which then led to questions. It lasted a little under 30 minutes. Afterwards, I went on a tour with some friends of mine who also applied. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very conversational, most of their questions came from my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's not as bad as I had previously heard. Many people said the interviewers ask incredibly difficult questions and they were out to catch you lying. It wasn't like that at all, I felt welcomed and almost everything I was asked came from my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt the interview and staff was fun and as low stress as possible given the circumstances. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the interview was very high stress. The questions they asked were not to get to know you, they were very specific. I am glad I interviewed there first because it was good practice for my other interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"very high stress, fact based questions one after the other, not personal at all. the students were really nice and friendly, but the faculty wasn't. I got the impression that since I wasn't interested in production/large animal that I wasn't worth their time (I did get in though)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admission office was awesome but I did not interact with them very much." More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep up the great work and fast responses!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Provide a timeline of the weekend (tour times, etc.) and shuttles to students during the week before the interview. I like to know things ahead of time so that was the only that I didn't like as much." More from this Member | Report Response

"They should receive all the information from VMCAS, don't require re-submitting all the same information directly to the school itself." More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep up the good work!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The application process needs to enter the digital era, with the option to pay with a credit card." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I didnt have to send so much paperwork. Seemed redundant." More from this Member | Report Response

"I've heard of a couple instances where interview offers were either 1) not received by the applicant (in my case) or 2) never sent to the applicant. I would make sure that the applicant received the interview offer before we call the admissions office." More from this Member | Report Response

"Having an online portal would have helped rather than having the paper application. I forgot to make a copy of mine, so I could not clearly remember what I put on the supplemental application." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed the pizza party but I was concern that it put some students at advantage to have the pizza party before their interview; half of the students already had the interview but half were not at the time of the party." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing they were wonderful" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff was wonderful, but it would have been nice to have a more structured interview day like other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Have a more open-house sort of day for students like purdue" More from this Member | Report Response

"Maybe revise emails during the application process to advertise looking over the frequently asked questions on the website; there is a lot of useful information there!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked how we had time to talk to other applicants and K-State veterinary students while we were waiting before our interviews, it calmed my nerves a lot." More from this Member | Report Response

"None. I like how simple the supplemental application is. I don't know why we send a copy of GRE scores though?" More from this Member | Report Response

"None. They did a fantastic job of answering any and all questions within 24 hours. There was no mention of a tour when I was there, so I did not get one, unfortunately." More from this Member | Report Response

"Because the interview was during christmas break on a sunday, the school and hospital were pretty empty. It would be nice to be there when more was going on!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Better tour guide screening!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed the day after the pizza party, but I felt sorry for the people who interviewed the first day before the party. The "party" was more of an information session, and it gave me a lot of good information about the school that I was able to use in my interview. If I had interviewed before the pizza part I definitely would have felt as though I was at a disadvantage." More from this Member | Report Response

"None, they were very friendly and responsive when I spoke with them. I left a message asking about timing for my flight and interview and Janel Koons called me back the next day to answer my question." More from this Member | Report Response

"None, everything was wonderful" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, everyone was wonderful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"None, everyone was friendly and helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"None; everyone responded to my questions quickly and thoroughly, and staff and faculty are extremely friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Put together a more concrete informational session. I wish there had been more planned events for the interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"Note that the tours also leave from the check in conference room in the information e-mail." More from this Member | Report Response

"A few more details about the structure of the interview/tour day in the interview invite email would be really helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"They seem to do a great job and I can't think of much they could do better. It would be nice to be able to see more of the hospital "in action." I know interviews are on weekends when most of the hospital is closed, and lots of tours could interfere with operations, but still I don't feel we really got too much out of hospital tour by walking through a mostly empty building and hallways." More from this Member | Report Response

"None, I had a wonderful time and was very impressed by the school, the interviewers, all the student ambassadors, and I felt that the interview went really well." More from this Member | Report Response
