The facilities were AMAZING." More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean of student affairs (one of my two interviewers) was soooo nice, I could tell she had REALLY read my VMCAS because she would ask me the hardest questions in the areas that she knew I worked the longest in and more basic questions in the areas I'd worked less in. She also recalled specifics from my personal statement (and she didn't have any notes out at that point to remind her of things). Both interviewers were so interested in finding out about me as a person, I'd say 40% of my questions had nothing to do directly with vet med. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nada" More from this Member | Report Response

"The super long information session in the morning. It was a lot of information that I'd heard before, and a lot would only be pertinent to students who were accepted. Why spend so much time on this type of information when we're all sittin around completely nervous. The tour was not as thorough as other schools I've been to. Additionally, they kept talking about the new teaching hospital that wouldn't be ready before I graduated. Kind of a disappointment." More from this Member | Report Response

"The veterinary library closes @ 8pm and there is no cafeteria to buy lunch and not many tables to eat at for hundreds of students/staff." More from this Member | Report Response

"While one building was brand new, the rest were older (not as nice). How many people they interview for OOS spots." More from this Member | Report Response

"The out of state tuition is high, but they give you every opportunity to gain residency after one year. That's really the only negative thing I saw that day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing- I do agree that people there for an interview should already know just about everything they go over in the presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very expensive for OOS!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The unusual questions in the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of free caffeine " More from this Member | Report Response

"Our tour guide could have been more enthusiastic; it was kind of a dreary day, she could have worked to make up for that fact. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was kind of a dreary day, and the student guide wasn't the regular guide. The original guide left with only two people and there were over 10 people for the interview. Thus the guide who gave us our tour wasn't very impressive, but she tried her best." More from this Member | Report Response

"Many of the classrooms were in use, and there was a conference going on so I was not able to see a lot of the academic facilities. The day was not really organized - I had my interview in the morning, then it was optional to come for a student-conducted tour at noon" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the faculty appeared to be socially awkward." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole process was quite unnerving, because everyone was so unfriendly. There was nothing organized for interviewees other than the actual interview itself. The tour was thrown together last minute, and led by a student that was only half interested. The admissions staff was quite unfriendly, and my interview was incredibly stressful.

"The fact that the day was unstructured. I enjoyed the visit, but at other schools they plan a whole day for interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewers were older and retired. The created a very stressful interview atmosphere which felt like and instense 45 minute grilling session where I bascially felt like I had to defend myself rather than sell myself. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I'll tell you what I wish I HADN'T known. I was actually kinda bummed after my interview because I heard stories of other ppl being approached directly after the interview with admissions offers. I didn't hear anything for about a week and a half and during that time I was obsessing about little things I did wrong in my interview. But right before Christmas I got a call offering me admissions!!! So be patient. Just because you don't get an instant phone call doesn't mean they don't want you."

"Not really something I wished *I* had known, but I'm sure someone did. Some people had been sitting in the lounge for HOURS. One girl had been there 6 already and still had 4 more to go. Not sure why they got there so early but I'm sure it was not much fun. As an interviewee, they said you're welcome to walk around the building and can go upstairs to the library to read or get on the computers or whatever. " More from this Member | Report Response

Don't expect it to be comfortable or to have a real conversation. They interview a ton of people at the same time so it's totally just the luck of the draw who you'll get."

"I would have wanted to know they were going to ask me so many questions about clinical situations. I would have wanted to know that they would ask about global issues and not just national issues. I would have wanted to know that if you have any C's, D's, F's, or W's on your transcript in prerequisites, they will ask you to explain them!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although I knew some already, be prepared to give some zoonotic diseases. Also, be prepared to talk about anything on your application or anything you say in detail." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had brought a book along. The morning was information sessions and the tour, followed by lunch until 12:30, when interviews started. My interview wasn't until 2:45, and there wasn't really anything for me to do or anywhere to go except hang out in the lounge where we had eaten lunch. It wasn't really a big deal, as most everyone else with later interviews just sat there and talked until it was our turns." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were things that I didn't know about OSU, but nothing really that I wish I'd known. I was surprised at how urban the campus is, and at some of the qualifications to get Ohio residency. Overall I feel that I was very well-prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Amazing school :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first big interview ever and I went in without any mock interview prep. Some things I noticed I did wrong during my interview: I had a good cop/bad cop setup and I noticed that I was directing my attention to the good cop the entire time and just glancing at the bad cop here and there. I also kind of rushed my answers (for fear of boring the bad cop). Take your time in thinking about your answer but be concise in your wording. Get straight to the point in an almost bullet-point fashion. Lastly, it would be a good idea to fully prepare a statement of why you want to be a vet and why OSU because these questions will most certainly be asked. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I would suggest going there a day early to look around. The informational sessions are good, and its helpful that you have a student panel to answer any of your questions. I was freaking out about the interviews, but they aren't bad (I guess it depends on who you got). It's mostly questions relevant to your experience, so that they know you didn't make it all up. Just answer truthfully, and you'll do fine! I got a call the next day telling me I got in!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview in the morning, if you can get a morning slot! There was hardly anyone there when I showed up, and it really helped me keep my stress level down. Also it was nice to get it out of the way first thing, and not have to be stressing about it through the info session and tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely a school worth the price tag. One thing that irked me was where I stayed, The Blackwell. For one, they refused to give me the Winter Special, even though I was within the time window, so to stay there was $147 vs $111. The lobby was a $150 lobby, but they only had $50 rooms. Most impressive part was a flat screen TV in the room and I could've happily forgone that for a cheaper rate. They do run a shuttle to airport and back, but it's in hour and fifteen minute intervals, so you better plan way ahead if you want to use it. The good is that they're very close to the vet school. It's only about a 15 minute walk from the hotel and they give you a campus map. Very easy to find your way (head past the stadium, then to the huge tower, and go over the bridge. Can't miss it). Bad part was the power went out. A utility truck had hit a generator and the entire hotel was without power. They eventually (8 hours later) transferred us to another hotel and covered our expenses, so I got to stay free the night I was there essentially. They also covered one of my cab rides too since I could no longer walk to the vet school, so that was nice. But unless you can get the hotel at a special rate, staying there isn't really much bang-for-your-buck. You won't save enough on taxi fare to make it worth while. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewers seemed much nicer this year and I felt better prepared. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It seemed that one of my interviewers knew the info in my file and questioned me from that. The other one was reading off a list of questions. My travel expenses would have been $1K if I didn't have airline and hotel points. I also found out about my interview later than others it seems. I only had a week to plan after I booked my interview time. My travel time would have only been 4.5 hours each way if I would not have had huge airport delays (9 hours). So don't wait until the last minute to arrive!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were very friendly and seemed to get along pretty well. I met with a few faculty members individually for the actual interviews, including the POI, and there are were other events and presentations during the weekend. It was fairly relaxed but professional." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm sure OSU is a great school but their interview process threw me for a loop. They interview a TON of people and I felt like one of a big crowd. Think undergrad bio 1 at a big university. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview process - the way the day was set up was very effective and gave me a true feel of the program. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed my interview process; it was amazing to meet so many neat applicants and I was much less nervous then I though I would be when the time came to be interviewed!! My interviewers were great; they were friendly and tried to get to know me as an individual." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewers were incredibly nice, it really did seem like they just wanted to get to know me better. When I first started my hands were shaking and my voice was unsteady. They stopped me and told me to just calm down, and to think of it as more of a conversation. I felt good about it when I left, and they called me 3 days later to offer me a seat!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Wear a nice suit. One would think that this would not have to be said, but I was surprised that some others were dressed rather unprofessionally." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hope I hear good news!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The most stressful part of the day is waiting for you interview. After they called my name all my nerves went away and the hard part was over, the interviewers even joked about that with me." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very positive experience. I actually had fun!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guides loved OSU and were very enthusiastic. Out of state tuition is ridiculous. However, you can get in state after your first year, a beautiful loophole." More from this Member | Report Response

"don't sweat it" More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the entire day was very well organized and was designed to help you relax. The information presented on financial aid was great, as were the current students. The interview was very conversational and actually fun! About 5 minutes after my interview was over, one of my interviewers pulled me aside to tell me that I had been accepted!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Orientation and financial aid information was very useful." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is really OK to be nervous!! I could even tell my interviewers were nervous too (they put their pants on one leg at a time too). My voice was super shaky for the first few minutes, but once the conversation got flowing I felt completely relaxed... GOOD LUCK!!! Also- I am IS but attend college OOS so I flew in , that is why my travel/cost is higher... incase you were confused" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great interview, especially my first (and only) veterinary school interview. Also, as someone else noted, stick around about 10-15 minutes afterwards. I received a call ten minutes after my interview had ended saying I was accepted!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very conversational and laid back. There is still an aura of importance and professionalism, but one of my interviewers was cracking jokes a couple times, so that gives you the idea of how informal it was. Also, the OSU website recommends staying at the Blackwell hotel, but there is a Red Roof Inn literally 3 minutes driving distance from the school for $55 a night compared to the $160 or something like that at the Blackwell." More from this Member | Report Response

"The best thing to do for this interview is relax. My interviewers were very nice, and the whole thing was conversational. Everyone said all morning that the interviewers are just trying to get to know you as a person, and I genuinely felt like they were. Know some stuff about current events, and a lot about veterinary medicine in general (stuff you should probably know anyway if you're this far along in pursuing vetmed as a career), and be able to describe many facets of your personality. Also, if you feel you did well, stick around for a few minutes afterward. They told me I was accepted 15 minutes after my interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought it went ok, enjoyed talking to the interviewers, bu did not get accepted unfortunately." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very stressed before my interview, but the interviewers were friendly and helped me relax. I was asked more character assessment questions than questions relating specifically to vet med. " More from this Member | Report Response

"so-so. i'm not sure how well i did or if the interviewers ended up positively or negatively impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I found it very positive. The interview was very relaxed and the questions were not difficult. The tour was great, and definately helped you understand what life at OSU was like. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great facility. I have several close friends who are recent graduates of the Vet School and they have taken me on mini-tours, but I had never seen the class rooms, library or labs. Really nice. My interviewers were really nice and laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview was great! Everyone was friendly that I encountered and willing to help in any way!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, obviously it went better than I thought I did since I was offered admission right then and there! :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I just left some feedback about Ohio State University and I forgot to mention some stuff. Don't be suprised to find out that day how you did. They say that if you have a low application score and a high interview score, then you find out in about three months. But if you have a high application score and a high interview score, then you might find out that day. I was leaving, and they called me back in to offer me admission. Don't be suprised if this happens to you. Good luck!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought my interview went well. I had two gentleman who were Theriogeniologists. They didn't play good cop, bad cop and were very friendly. They helped me feel relaxed and then helped me ease into the questions. They also talked to me about the cost of me attending The Ohio State University. I don't know if it helped that I'm also a guy and was able to talk football with them. I prepared using all of my tools, and almost all of my questions that I had thought of (Horse Slaughter Act, BSE, research, etc...) were asked. I answered them well and they let me ask some questions too." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview but I really wasn't nervous. I tried to keep an open mind and answered questions honestly and it worked to my benefit." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall, it was not a bad interview but was not a great interview. this was my first one so I will learn from this one and have a better understanding of my future profession for my future interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview, and it really wasn't that bad. My interviewers were two doctors and two students. Everyone was friendly and realy just seemed to want to get to know me. There was a little of the ''good cop, bad cop'' thing, but I think they were just testing to see if I would lose my cool." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were 2 interviewers and one played the good guy and the other the bad guy. I normally don't get nervous about anything but I got more nervous as the interview went on because of the way the ''bad guy'' was" More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt fairly confident coming out of the interview. My interviewers really made it seem more like a conversation than an interview, so it was much more relaxed than I was expecting. I felt like I was well prepared (probably spent too much time preparing in actuality) and I could answer all of the questions I was asked. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the time I spent at OSU. Everyone was very friendly and it was much more laid back than I expected" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was not a good interview experience, and definitely gave me a negative impression of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Disappointing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Low stress, interesting" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewers (one of which was Dean Sanders) were extremely friendly and really tried to put you at ease. We laughed and joked around a lot and they really wanted to get to know you. My SA experience was limited (100 hours as compared to 1000s of hours in zoo/equine) yet most of my interview questions were focused on SA medicine. I was nervous as I didn't know some of the SA questions, but the interviewers were very understanding and I got in so I must not have done that bad! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive! I had already known quite a bit about the school and the program before my interview, so there wasn't tons I hadn't seen or heard before. The people were very friendly - both students who were lurking around to answer questions despite it being finals, and the faculty/administrators. It seemed as if I had a ''good cop/bad cop'' interview though - with one super friendly and the other more reserved who asked much tougher questions. It could have just been personality differences. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome, sums it up. State of the art acedemic buildings and hospital, approachable faculty, and every student I talked to was SOOOO nice and helpful. *Another thing about Ohio for out of state residents: If accepted, the school gives you $10,000 (this is NOT based on financial need, every out of state student gets it) to help cover tuition your first year. THEN after that it is very possible to pay in-state tuition. While I was touring the school, they actually were giving a seminar to the first year students on how to do just that, so don't be detered by the cost if you really want to go here! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very friendly and relaxed. No particularly difficult questions--they weren't trying to trick you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Really good! My interviewers and I maintained a very conversational tone. Don't be afraid to ask questions throughout and take your time before answering questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxed. They didn't ask me any specific factual questions. They really wanted to get to know me, and it felt more like a casual conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"I fell in love with the school, 100%. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, they asked me a lot of detailed questions while both of my interviewers were very nice, one of them seemed disinterested during my responses. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a really positive experience since my interviewers made it clear they wanted to get to know me as a person. They did not ask me any difficult questions at all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was me and two 70-something retired vets. I felt pretty grilled the whole time, though I did get a few ''good answer'' from them. As I said before they must have looked over my transcript and asked me about stuff they thought I learned in my classes. A few times I had to say ''honestly I don't know that answer, I never learned that''. I felt it was really an unfair interview because of all the really specific questions asked. There was no way to study for it because I couldn't study ALL of my old course material." More from this Member | Report Response

"Extremly positive experience -- I loved my interviewers. Everyone I met at the school was great. Once I began the interview, my stress level went down tremendously because they really tried to have more of a conversation with me and get to know me better. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The OSU interview is laid back. I laughed with my interviewers through out most of the interview. It seems like they are really trying to understand who you are and why you want to attend. It was a refresing change from some other schools. Just be sure to read up on veterinary issues in the news (Avian influenza,BSE... etc)because they ALWAYS ask."
