What was the most difficult question?

"The only question that caught me somewhat off guard was this one that went a bit like this; Veterinary applicants tend to stress that they are animal people, but often they underestimate how much of a role human interactions have in medicine. What do you think is the role of humans in veterinary medicine? I don't think they asked about clients specifically, but this is how I took the question." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I printed out a large list of most popular questions that are asked at veterinary interviews and I practiced answering them.

Hearing their perspective helped me come up with more unique responses and be able to speak naturally/without stress." Report Response
