"During the majority of the interview, one of the interviewers payed little to no attention to me as I was responding to questions. He/she was literally looking around the room as if very bored from my responses. I felt that this was rude and distracting, and this made me feel as though this person was not there in the interview for me. I was trying to keep eye contact with all interviewers during the interview, but I was unable to keep eye contact with the person looking all around the room while I was speaking." More from this Member | Report Response

"the type of questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"When mentioning a time when I had to overcome an obstacle- the effects of being in a car accident- the team questioned my capabilities to work with large animals due to injuries suffered 10 years ago. I felt like they questioned my ability to perform as a potential large animal vet, although I have clearly overcome those obstacles in the 10 years between the car accident and the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was scheduled on the same day as the veterinary program's open house. There were thousands of people at the open house, making it a little nerve racking for arriving interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had to wait an hour and a half past my interview time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Multiple questions regarding cheating. If I were going to cheat, would I honestly tell you? Any person with a brain in their head is going to tell you exactly what you want to hear." More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't think of anything, I suppose the interviews were running late, but for me I was too so it worked out just fine :D Besides it showed that the interviewers were more about learning who you were and not keeping schedules :D" More from this Member | Report Response

"My panel seemed a bit rushed. They kept looking at the clock in between questions. I found this a little irritating since my interview began ten minutes late; I wanted to get my image across as fully as possible. " More from this Member | Report Response

Turns out, just like everyone said, it's really nothing to worry about. The interviewers are very happy to be there and to meet you. They acknowledge what a huge deal it is for you, and do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. They know what it feels like to be in your position, and they aren't there to terrorize you. They just want to get to know you as best they can in the 20 minutes they have with you." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Compared to what other students getting interviewed said, my interviewers seemed less inviting, and less interested to be there. Did not talk about themselves at all besides their names. Be aware of what is going on in the news and if they ask you if you keep up with the news and know of anything going on right now, ask if they have something specific in mind they wanted you to talk about instead of just saying "I don't know."" More from this Member | Report Response

"The closed folder interview system is an inefficient way of getting to know applicants. In another veterinary school interview, interviewers had a copy of each students VMCAS in front of them for reference; this allowed them to ask targeted questions and not waste time trying to understand things that were thoroughly documented in the VMCAS. I was extremely dissatisfied with the professionalism of the faculty member and felt attacked simply because he could not seem to understand my circumstances." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview went well, but I definitely could not gauge how well they received me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I found the interview process to be great. Everyone I encountered there was friendly and genuine. The interview was conversational and enjoyable rather than scary as I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt that the interview process was well organized and completed in a timely manner." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process was well run and went very smoothly." More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all I think the interview process was a good system." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interviewers were really nice. There is nothing that I would change." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"They are looking for good communication skills so prepare a simple introduction of yourself and what you've done so you can have a nice conversation or else they will ask you random questions. Just relax and think that you just need to demonstrate how passionate you are about LSU and the profession." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a positive and easy experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was a good way for the interviewers to get to know me without drilling me with questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"LSU has been the most pleasant place to apply. Everyone has been so friendly and efficient!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This School is a great choice for students to complete their degree as Doctors in Veterinary Medicine. It posses all the resources to train excellent future veterinarians." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, this was a great interview. With all things considered not very stressful. Helpful students/admissions office, and nice facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good interview. Didn't appear to be an agenda to the questions. Like most group settings, you might find 1-2 interviewers who want to know your strengths while the other 1-2 try to tease out weaknesses." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great experience and more relaxing than I thought. I wish I didn't talk so fast because I was worried I would run out of time, but I think they do give you the time to express yourself, so don't worry!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Was very nervous but it went better than planned. Laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxed interview. One of the people interviewing comes to get you out of the holding room, which is nice. Just like last year there was at least one interviewer that is always smiling and encouraging. We were sitting at a folding table and the close proximity made me a little uneasy at times. They do a great job of making the whole process as painless as it can be. They aren't trying to break the weak, but are just trying to get to know you and hear your story in person." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process is very laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a nice process and I felt very comfortable while talking to my interviewers. Having a current veterinary student available to talk to beforehand was very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"The overall experience in the interview process at this school affected me positively. Admissions was very good about keeping us up-to-date and informed. I found the interviewers to be kind and left me with a good impression of my future at the school and in the field." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview went smoothly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing Experience, all admission staff and interviwers were quite friendly, which helped to ease the tension of uch a nervous setting." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers are great! They really just want to get to know you as an individual. Have a few important traits you'd like them to know about you and go from there." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was an overall positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish there had been guided tours. I feel like I missed out on seeing much of the campus and facilities while going on a self-guided tour, not to mention that it was difficult to get a real feel for the place during the chaos of Open House. On another note, I very much enjoyed the opportunity to speak with current SVM students. They provided a lot of useful insight and helped me to relax prior to my interview, which by the way, went supremely well." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process at LSU SVM was all in all a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel that it was a very fair interview, and if say calm and be yourself you'll do fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved that we were able to interact with current vet students in the hospitality room before the interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good interview just very short" More from this Member | Report Response

"During the Q&A session and the tour with the first year students, they talked way too much about non-pertinent information. During the Q&A session, there was were way too many "inside jokes" and stories that I didn't care about hearing. During the tour, I felt like I was being taken on an orientation. I wasn't there for an orientation. I was there for a tour. The tour should've ended about 30 minutes earlier than it did." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think if you prepare and have a general idea of what you think is most important that they know about you, then it will go good." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a good overall experience with my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive impression of the school. Glad interviews were at the same time as the Open House. Also, the main campus gate lady wouldn't let me come 'through campus.' That was the only way I knew how to get there!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely one of the most nerve-wracking experiences of my life, but I left feeling pretty good. I thought it was going to be much worse than it was." More from this Member | Report Response

"This experience will lay the foundation for any professional endeavors I will have for the rest of my life. In other areas of life, in the hands of less qualified professionals, stressful situations like this tend to be exacerbated by the administrators apparent lack of motivation and attention to detail, for this process, at Louisiana State University, every person that is involved in the admissions process operated in such a way that I am never anxious and never mistrusting that they have my best intentions in mind and are extraordinarily capable of delivering this process to me in a neutral, subtly tailored way, specifically designed for my personality, and not intruding into my personal life, thereby creating a delightful experience that highlight both good and bad elements of my personality, without a hint of judgement or patronage. I have also learned from this process that I am capable of great humility combined with the intelligence to move forward since I have failed twice and intend on a third application." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a good experience. I did not like that it was a blind interview however. It is harder to sell yourself when they know nothing about you." More from this Member | Report Response

"best school ever, geaux tigers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview process went very well. Nothing discouraged me from wanting to attend LSU." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the school needs some updates. I have used LSU in the past for my horses and it looked very much the same. I noticed an incredible amount of improvements on campus and the vet school needs them!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great interview experience and really appreciated the friendly atmosphere. I was also glad that current students at the school and the director of admissions were in the waiting room with us to answer any questions that we had." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed how LSU process had the least amount of stress compared to the other schools which I applied. This means a lot when you are already at a stressful point in your life." More from this Member | Report Response

"LSU does a great job with interviews, the open house, and providing interviewees with a positive experience. The staff and faculty do a top-notch job." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very relaxed environment. No need to be nervous." More from this Member | Report Response

"LSU vet school was very impressive and the team oriented atmosphere was super friendly. I loved visiting and think the school would be a good fit for most people. The open house on the same day was nice because you get to see a lot of things, but it definitely made the place a little hectic." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a nice experience. The interviewers were a bit intimidating and some of the questions caught me off guard, but they finished on time and did not keep me waiting very long. The students were helpful in answering any questions we had. I love the facilities and the location of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview went well. I didn't have any awkward questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewing at LSU School of Veterinary Medicine was an amazing opportunity." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone involved was very nice and helped to relieve some of the overwhelming pressure." More from this Member | Report Response

"Enjoyed the school, one of my out of states interviews-there were tours and an orientation session, LSU was lacking this for the in-state interviewees" More from this Member | Report Response

"I greatly enjoyed the interview process." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt the interview was very relaxed and a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was thoroughly impressed with LSU and the interview process!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"it goes by quickly and isn't something to stress over. just answer honestly and be yourself" More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel as though the interview went well. It was not as stressful as I thought it would be. The only problem I had was with the one individual that made me feel unwelcome and very unimportant at many times during the interview. The other interviewers made me feel very comfortable during the entire interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Thanks so much to everyone at LSU SVM. Y'all were great throughout this entire process" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not impressed that the SCAVMA president talked so much about drinking at the welcoming reception. I understand that is Cajun culture but not a way to attract serious professional students." More from this Member | Report Response

"great interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, very impressed with interview and school" More from this Member | Report Response

"If the ease of the application process and the incredible admissions staff are at all indicative of the type of experience I would have as a student at this school....then I can't wait to be accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt very comfortable during my interview. The atmosphere was very welcoming and very comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"My experience was great. I can't complain about anything. I liked the fact that it was the same day as Open House, it somehow made it feel not so businesslike and it also allowed me to feel more relaxed somehow. Also I liked the fact that it was on Open House because I believe it was a way to test your ability to channel your stress by being in a sort of busy or chaotic environment before, during and after the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall this was the best interview I have had" More from this Member | Report Response

"You can prepare yourself to say what you need to say, but it won't be a perfect delivery when you are in the actual interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall good expereince" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a lot more laid-back than I expected. The interviewers asked questions about my aspirations based off of what I spoke about in my introduction." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have liked a longer interview:)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, a good experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax. Be yourself. Make sure you make a statement that will make you stand out." More from this Member | Report Response

"the types of questions they asked me, did not have much to do about my interest in the profession" More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the overall interview went well and I enjoyed learning about the school during the reception on the night before interviews, but I feel like the interview should be able to look at applications for them to get a complete picture of the applicant's potential." More from this Member | Report Response

"LSU SVM is a great school and the admissions office is a god send for applicants! They really did their best to calm us down, and the current students being in the waiting room to answer questions was also very helpful. They went through the interview process so they truly know how you feel and they also did their best to help you out." More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved that I was given the option to have a webcam interview. Made my life much easier, since traveling half-way across the country in the middle of my semester was going to be difficult. It did pose some technical difficulties, but everything worked perfectly. The admissions office was great getting everything set up, and ensuring that it was going to work." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was impressed with my interview and the process." More from this Member | Report Response

"LSU seems like a wonderful school and a place that I am intrested in attending." More from this Member | Report Response

"I know that if I were to attend LSU as an OOS student, I would still feel like part of the family because everyone is so welcoming and warm!" More from this Member | Report Response

"More guidance for interviewees to navigate the open house... I had to ask 3 volunteers before someone knew anything." More from this Member | Report Response

"The in-state interviews were a few days after the open-house, but I came to the open house anyway. I recommend going to the open house if possible in order to become familiar with the setting of the school. I was more relaxed because I had been at LSU SVM only a few days earlier. It also would have been nice if all of the applicant had received e-mails advertising the open house." More from this Member | Report Response

"LSU was very welcoming and really makes it seem like they want you there and want to accept you. Also, if they have the interviews on the same day as Open House again, it gets VERY crowded, so make sure you allot extra time to deal with traffic and crowds." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students were extremely friendly! Wonderful school! The welcome session the night before was also great. It calmed my nerves and I met a lot of people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was really friendly and the interviewers acted more like they wanted to get to know you rather than to interrogate you, which definitely helped with the nerves. Food always makes me happy, so the fact that there were bagels, food bars, fruit, etc. offered was a huge plus." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very happy with the process and the outcome." More from this Member | Report Response

"Have fun! Be confident. This is the opportunity for you to show off how talented and dedicated you are! Show them you really want to be there!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Twenty minutes may feel like a long time, but trust me, time flies when you are being interviewed. The process felt like two minutes. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was not an intimidating interview. They know that you've come a long way to get to that point and that you're qualified. So, they are really just trying to get a feel for your ethics and character." More from this Member | Report Response

"They didn't throw out any 'science IQ' questions. Like 'What does a transistor do' or 'Explain shotgun sequencing' or 'what does PCR stand for and why is it important' or 'what's a satellite cell and where do you find them' or 'tell us what's special about cardiac muscle' or 'why do ligaments heal so slowly' or that kind of thing. If I was an interviewer I'd probably have been a little more merciless...." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was surprised to see some of the other interviewees were not very professionally dressed (I was in a suit), so that made me feel a bit more confident. Although one girl left the interview room crying... It really wasn't nearly as horrible as I was expecting. I had trouble relaxing, but the interviewers did their best to put me at ease. I was worried they would ask me difficult questions about my application, but it was close-file and the questions were mostly pretty general. A lot of ethics-related questions, questions about my personality. I mostly resisted the temptation to just start spouting off at the mouth right away and gave myself a second to think before answering--this helped a lot. I also came prepared with some questions to ask of my own--I think this also helped make a favorable impression. I lost a lot of sleep over it, but it really wasn't nearly as bad as I had been expecting." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very brief (15 minutes) and there was no time for questions at the end, but otherwise a relatively stress-free interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very conversational. Since it was closed file, questions flowed naturally from what was said before. Questions weren?t deep or heavy." More from this Member | Report Response

"It wasn't a hard interview, but I don't feel like I communicated myself well at all for some reason. I mis-spoke at one point and from there on, I just kept saying things that probably made no sense whatsoever." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"I was happy to know about my interview status in December before the holidays but there is a lot of wait time in between, especially after the interview where I am waiting to know my results. I know there was the unfortunate situation of the weather but it is not fun having to wait so long to hear back." More from this Member | Report Response

"Quicker response time for letters of acceptance." More from this Member | Report Response

"I have had only positive experiences with every one in the admissions office thus far." More from this Member | Report Response

"The supplemental application setup is primitive and should really be updated so that progress can be saved under an applicant's name and accessed later. The fact that it has to all be done in a word processor is extremely inconvenient. At interview day there were no opportunities for tours of the facilities and so I still do not know what the conditions of the facilities are. I feel that this is something that is vital to the interview day experience and to making a decision on attendance to a school. I have not been to a single interview day that did not have tours except for LSU." More from this Member | Report Response

"None to give, have been satisfied throughout the process" More from this Member | Report Response

"email acceptances and refusals" More from this Member | Report Response

"Let students know that they will not be able to check on receipt of transcripts until the VET school receives their VMCAS application, not when the student submits their application." More from this Member | Report Response

"Have someone when exiting the interview to thank you for coming and allow you to leave." More from this Member | Report Response

"I do not really have any suggestions. Applicants that receive interviews are going to be nervous no matter what, and that was the hardest part for me. I feel that the interviewers did well, and I felt relaxed once the interview was started." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall great process!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep it up!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview! I really got to know the school and now I am completely convinced this is where I want to go even though I have other offers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Sending out some type of letter explaining that the interviewers understand that we are nervous and are not there to set us up with trick questions would be helpful! A veterinary student told me "They know you're nervous but they make you feel comfortable and the interview is more laid back than you would think." I immediately felt better afterwards and thought "Why can't LSU tell us that?!"" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviewers was on her phone (texting) on and off during the interview -- this was a little distracting for me. Otherwise I had a great experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"none online info update was more helpful than any other school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Being able to pay the supplemental application fee online would be very helpful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing! The admissions staff has been wonderful, especially Jared Granier. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and keep you updated every step of the way." More from this Member | Report Response

"None. The admissions office was extremely helpful and responsive during the entire process. The interview process seems too quick: 25' for 4 years. That being said, I understand the resource constraints and volume of applications it must cover." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Keep doing what you doing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview itself took place in quite a friendly atmosphere. The only thing that was uncomfortable was waiting for my interview, but that is no fault of the admissions office. A positive experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"None- the everyone in the admissions office really do their best to get the information to you as soon as possible and try help you relax prior to the interview. Overall I've had a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"No suggestions. I love the Online Status Check System." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think acceptances and denials should be mailed out in the form of a letter. All other communication can be done via the internet. However, a physical letter is more personal." More from this Member | Report Response

"None, super laid-back process. The admissions office made the whole thing a very low-stress experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviewers was very unprofessional." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the interview experience I had at LSU. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I have no current comments or suggestions for the admissions office." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm very pleased with the way everything has been handled so far." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have liked a little more time during the interview. It felt like I was only back there for 5 minutes but it went really well and my interviewers were very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't have interviews on the same day as open house. It was a little crazy!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't stress!! It's not as bad as you are making it out to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"Perhaps conduct the interviews on a day other than the open house day. There were so many people there that it was difficult to see the school and the facilities, much less get a real feel of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything has been good so far. This is a well set up admissions process from what I've seen." More from this Member | Report Response

"Have a map of how to get to campus from the interstates/the main drags for those of us who were from out of town. The gate lady threw me off being there Monday (interview) but not Saturday (open house), and it took me another 15 minutes to find another route that did not go through campus!" More from this Member | Report Response

"None. It was stressful as could be, but there's really no way around it! Providing refreshments and current students to talk to was a great idea." More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep up the good work and thanks for the pleasant experience !!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It would be nice and more personal to receive a letter in the mail when you get an interview or get accepted instead of everything being put online." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview less students." More from this Member | Report Response

"None. Very Friendly. Made me feel very comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Jared Granier with LSU SVM Admissions was excellent and he helped to make the application process a great experience!" More from this Member | Report Response

"A first or second year student mentor program for the incoming interviewers would be an awesome idea. Someone they can talk to and get to know instead of the general meet a great." More from this Member | Report Response

"None; the admissions office does an excellent job of communicating with the applicants and keeping them updated in an efficient and organized manner. Great job :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Sending actual e-mails with application status updates would have seemed more personable to me than having to constantly check the online status check system. At least having an e-mail for my interview invitation and offer of admission would have been nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"None, truthfully. Jared and the admissions committee does a wonderful job of contacting applicants and interviewees. They do their job well and care about EVERY part of their program, and each student who is or wants to become a part of it." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Love the stauts check system! No negative comments at all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview preparation packet I received did not adequately prepare me for the questions I received in my interview. According to the packet, I was to be prepared for ethical questions and questions related to current veterinary trends. I studied up on both of those topics very thoroughly, but was asked nothing along those lines. Instead, I was asked to make a personal statement to open the interview (I was unaware of this), and the questions were to come from my statement. I was completely prepared for an interview I never received. I did well during the interview, I just wanted to comment that the preparation guide misled me in terms of what to expect. I don't know if my experience was unusal or the norm, but it definitely added to my stress level during that time." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt that the waiting room was chaotic and that made it more difficult for me to relax. Unfortunately, I don't have a better method to suggest. It seems necessary." More from this Member | Report Response

"Shorter waiting periods for updates would be nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Holding interviews on the same day as the annual Open House created unnecessary stress and chaos. I would have preferred for the interviews to be held on a separate day that was more focused on potential veterinary students." More from this Member | Report Response

"spread interview out over 4 days so no one has to interview after lunch. I feel when you interview late the interviewers are tired and paying less attention." More from this Member | Report Response

"None, admissions office is top notch" More from this Member | Report Response

"Jared is the man. My favorite admissions director out of all the schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved the fact that the interview was done on the day of the Open House!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not a thing. Everyone in the office was incredibly helpful and friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was not much I would change about the process. I loved coming to visit and the fact that the interview was on Open House Day just allowed me to see more of the school and reinforce my decision." More from this Member | Report Response

"Mr. Granier is the best! He was so good at keeping us up-to-date on what was happening in the admissions process, the weather (bad weather) in the days leading up to the interview. Terrific guy and makes the whole process much less stressful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A: No suggestions needed!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really have no suggestions. The Admissions committee and the way they work out everything is great. They are super attentive with the students regarding any questions they have, everything is aswered as soon as they can do it and they do it the nicest way. I love the fact that your account status online is pretty much updated every few days so you know if your checklist is complete or not (as opposed to some other universities, where nothing is updated and you have to call). I personally think that both the Welcoming Reception and the Interviews were carried in a very organized manner, the fact that some interviews got pushed a little later was not the admissions fault, the weather complicated things and there is no way admissions could help that. Overall, I would say that the admissions process for LSU has been the easiest one to work with, at least from the universities I applied to." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really don't have any complaints everything went smoothly and in a timely manner, i had a great experience and everyone was very nice and comforting!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep it up, doing a good job of recruiting for your school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The reception held the night before was great and made me feel a lot more comfortable for interviews the next day. Encourage students to take a tour after the reception so that they have a chance to see the hospital without the craziness of the open house." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process was organized, and as efficient as it could have been. In the future, I'd suggest some basic courtesies to keep in mind while students are waiting for their interviews in the designated waiting room. Friends that come to offer support are wonderful for those applicants that have them. Conversations between friends and family, especially those that offer unsolicited advice, can be a source of stress and distract the other candidates from being able to focus." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing!! I don't see how you could make the system any better ... very easy to accses and very helpful and friendly Admissions director." More from this Member | Report Response

"I like the way the interviews were set up. I also found that the people were honestly interested in what I had to say and were not there to judge me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish there was a way to speed up the process. We are only given a few months to find housing, jobs, and places for our animals once we are accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really appreciated the students giving us a tour of the veterinary school and facilities. I learned a lot more than I think I would have on the self guided tour and it helped me get a better feel for your students. However, because the tour was during the open house it was sometimes impossible to hear what they were saying and I feel I missed out on some useful information. I think running the tours a little earlier in the day on Friday would have been great because I felt much too tired to stay up for the tour after the orientation lectures. I had a great time,I enjoyed the campus and all of the faculty and staff were friendly and helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt the interview was somewhat unorganized. I would have liked for the interviewers to know more about me than just my name. Some of the questions they asked were directly found in the application, so having that to look at before or during the interview would have been more efficient." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at all, the admissions office at LSU is amazing and so helpful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Inform the applicants what the interview pannel know and dont know about them.. At some schools it's an open folder and others it's not..." More from this Member | Report Response

"No new suggestions, everything seems to be working well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewers did a great job in making the process less stressful." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought everything was wonderful." More from this Member | Report Response

"I have no suggestions. They did an excellent job." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very impressed with the LSU admissions process. We were kept well-informed and all of my questions were answered promptly and directly. I really appreciated being able to check my status online at any time, and I was very pleased with the level of communication from the admissions folks. The LSU admissions office has done an incredible job - far better than any of the other schools I applied to." More from this Member | Report Response

"None - they are the most responsive of any school and try to minimize applicants' stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"The only suggestion I have for them is not to call some people with acceptances while making others wait for mail. This caused undue stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wow! Admissions was informative, prompt, and very friendly. Best admission office, to be sure!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions office was outstanding and quick to respond throughout the entire application process" More from this Member | Report Response

"They are amazing and super helpful...if only all schools could be that way!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had some but everything about LSU's admission process was FANTASTIC! They had an up to date" More from this Member | Report Response

"Applicants love free snacks...." More from this Member | Report Response
