"SDN interview questions, mock interviews" More from this Member | Report Response

"Checked out the questions on SDN, but they revamped the interview this year (2016) so the questions no longer really apply. It's more of a general discussion about your veterinary experience.

"I reread my personal statement and went over my experience descriptions. I also jotted down a few specific cases that I could use as an example for multiple different questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I ran through all of the questions on SDN and made short, bullet point answers so that I would have stories to draw upon without sounding rehearsed.

All but one question I was asked I had seen on SDN." More from this Member | Report Response

"Focused on preparing behavioral question answers" More from this Member | Report Response

"I read the questions on SDN, prepared my answers and ran them by my family and several veterinarians I worked with." More from this Member | Report Response

"SDN" More from this Member | Report Response

"SDN!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Read questions on SDN, watched YouTube videos about behavioural interviews, looked up behavioural interview questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Read behavioural interview questions from this website." More from this Member | Report Response

"I looked over behavioral interview questions online and read over my application again." More from this Member | Report Response

"The close-knit community" More from this Member | Report Response

"Their large facility, the students capacity to be both smart and engaging, their research opportunities" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was nice and so was getting to speak to the student ambassadors." More from this Member | Report Response

"Really personable interviewers, very friendly. They were easy to talk to. My ambassador who showed me around the school and answered all my questions was really great and friendly as well. She also brought us to the different rooms for our interview or test and made sure that we were never secluded or lost. Really brought about a sense of belonging in the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students and faculty were very welcoming and incredibly helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were very welcoming and the students kept dropping by to chat and exchange emails. The faculty and staff treat interviewees and students with dignity and kindness. Even the cafeteria staff stopped to chat and wish me luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the students and staff were always checking in to say hello and see how we were" More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed the admissions committee made me feel. Everyone was super nice and encouraging. They really want you to do well and help keep you calm in the whole process.

"Everyone here is INCREDIBLY friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendliness of the staff and students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was so friendly and welcoming." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was very friendly at the school and the interviewers were very laid back and nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was so nice!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Singh is the retired chair of admissions, and the histology professor and he is so sincere and motivating. He is one of the sweetest admissions office members that I have met thus far." More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed it was, very friendly. If they felt I didn't answer a question to the extent they were looking for, they would ask me an additional question to gain that information." More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly everyone was! Even professors that had nothing to do with the process wished us good luck and said that they hoped to see us next year. I thought it was going to be such a nerve racking process and I was pretty nervous the day and morning before but when I got there everyone calmed me down by how relaxed they were. Also, getting to know Dr. Singh, who was one of the interviewers, during a group lunch was a great way to feel more comfortable once the interview started. The interviewers made it feel like a nicely flowing conversation rather than one person being put on the spot to speak all of the time." More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly everyone was! Also, at AVC there are only three interviews per day, so we all had lunch with Dr. Singh (head of admissions) before he interviewed us. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The snowstorm" More from this Member | Report Response

"Sooooooooooo much waiting around." More from this Member | Report Response

"Since this was the first year implementing the new interview system they have in place, the timing of everything was a little off. We would be left with thirty minutes to an hour and a half of waiting around until our next activity, be it the W-SAB or the interview, began, depending on what activity we had just completed. I'm sure next year they will refine everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not so much negative but there is a smaller caseload so I am unsure out up to date technology and things are." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was extremely cold and wintery" More from this Member | Report Response

"I can't think of anything." More from this Member | Report Response

"how sheltered the island is" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Nothing, although I would have preferred a tour from a student." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The city was pretty closed down because tourist season was over." More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't think of anything, would have liked to have seen how the school looks when the students are there...I caught it during their spring break." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I didn't get to answer a "tell me about yourself" question or talk about my interest in veterinary medicine at all really-I'm relying that my passion showed through on paper in the application." More from this Member | Report Response

"The animal hospital was under construction at the time, I wasn't able to tour a lot of it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"We didn't get the chance to see much on the tour, as tour groups were not allowed to enter most areas." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"The interview is all indoors, so didn't need to carry around bulky clothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"to relax in the interview. it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I had no reason to be nervous. Seriously." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wonder if renting a car would have been a better idea so that I could drive around the town and surrounding areas to explore, relying on taxis was a bit expensive, and my phone had poor-to-zero signal so it was hard to call taxis at times." More from this Member | Report Response

"How laid back the interviewers would be and that I didn't need to get so stressed out." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not to spent so much time panicking. Also, they don't care if you send thank you notes or not afterwards." More from this Member | Report Response

"The visitor center and shops after you get off the bridge close early in winter. We got off the bridge around 4:30 pm and everyone was closed" More from this Member | Report Response

"YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT ANY EXPERIENCE TWICE! So make sure you have lots of different experiences lined up, and have some way of cycling through your experiences in your head in case you blank. Also, ALL of the questions are behavioral ("tell me about a time when..."). You don't need to say why you want to be a vet, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"The level of detail that they wanted in the answers. I never seemed to give them enough." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I'd believed everyone who said the interview wouldn't be bad! It really wasn't. The interview was very relaxed and there were no trick or unexpected questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of specialists that teach at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I wouldn't get to talk about veterinary medicine much-none of my answers related to veterinary medicine-I used examples from other parts of life." More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed of an interview it was!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed everything would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I should have listened to everyone and relaxed! It was more like a conversation then an interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't realize that it would be closed-file, and only learned a few days before going that it would be behavioral. " More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very conversational and the committee members were engaged with me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is competitve to get into, but the atmosphere is very laid back and engaging." More from this Member | Report Response

"They need to refine their organization a little bit for the interview day, but since it was the first year they implemented the new way of doing things, it's understandable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, great staff, great students, great environment." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just need to relax during the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Reviewing the questions on SDN helped a ton, I wasn't surprised by any questions. Dr Singh is really nice and reassured us going into the interview, he gave us reminders to do firm handshakes and assured us that it was ok to pass on a question if we wanted to. I think my favorite part was seeing the teaching animals, the beagles and cows were so cute" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone is easy going and friendly. Enjoy the tour, eat some lunch and bring something to do until your interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

The community is so welcoming, it feels like home when you're on campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the time I spent at UPEI and around the island for my interview. Everyone I met was very nice and extremely helpful. I look forward to hearing back." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Longer interview time, even the interviewers seemed rushed between applicants" More from this Member | Report Response

"It would be really nice if there was some way to automate the application system. I know certain schools have an online component so you can see the status and progress of your application. For example, it shows you whether all your supplemental documents (such as GRE results), have been received. That would be a nice touch to implement so all the applicants are constantly bombarding the admissions office with emails to check on the status of their application."
