What impressed you positively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The stress-level of the "multiple mini interviews". The school clearly had no desire to impress me also by not telling applicants anything about the school culture or curriculum. All other schools did. Seems kind of arrogant. The tour guide also wasn't even a Vet student. It was someone who worked for the vet school, but not a student. I was least impressed of the 4 schools I applied for. If it was an out-of-state option for me, I think I would have a difficult selecting it as my school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There's nothing really that I could have known that would've helped. I had heard beforehand how the interview process was going to go but it was still nerve-racking." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"TAMU's goal with this is to more objectively assess applicants' different characteristics and ethics. I believe it's such a nerve-racking process, however, that many students end up not being able to communicate as effectively as they would if it were just a one-on-one interview with 2-3 interviewers. I know I did well in the interviews, but this was far & away the most unnecessarily stressful interview process of the 4 schools I applied for." Report Response
