What was the most difficult question?

"If someone wants to euthanize a perfectly healthy dog and won’t listen to anything you have to say, what do you do? They persisted and said the person would take the dog into a ditch and shoot it with the loaded gun they had in their vehicle if I didn’t euthanize. They took my response of calling the cops as unacceptable." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The panel I had was not great. Specifically, there was one very rude panel remember who would raise her voice at me and belittle me. I get that they want someone to put pressure on you to see how you handle it but I think she went very over the top." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known it would be so intense. Everyone says the panel is so friendly and makes you feel comfortable, but what I didn’t know is that there are two separate panels. As luck goes I didn’t get the friendly one that everyone had been raving about. I also wish I knew more about Ag. Being a UofR student and being a part of the SK pool, they expected me to know so much about agriculture when UofR doesn’t have any ag classes. I feel it was very unfair and probably mostly USask students are successful over Regina students for the 20 SK spots." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I wasn’t thrilled with how the interview went. All of that aside I feel the one panel member destroyed my chances of a good interview. Being a vet, I know I would face difficult clients and have issues many days. But I wasn’t expecting to have a panel member attack me so I was a little shocked and I feel like that made the last 35 minutes of my interview just continue roll downhill at full speed."
