What impressed you positively?

"Almost nothing. The campus and surrounding area is beautiful, but that's about it." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Everything. 1. The MMI format is complete garbage. They ask unrelated questions that are *supposed* to measure abstract concepts that are *supposed* to measure ideal qualities in a veterinarian. I walked away feeling like they had no idea who I was as a person or applicant. Worse yet, they give you a score on your interview and judge you on that alone. They no longer consider the rest of your application. This is extremely foolish, as some people just don't interview well, but would make fantastic veterinarians. 2) The interviewers for the most part were extremely unfriendly. They did not smile, nor even acknowledge an answer. 3) The tour was horrible. All the facilities were closed and we didn't actually get to see much. Plus our tour guide was unenthusiastic. 4) The facilities were run down and dirty. The hallways had random furniture/boxes/occupational hazards stored in them. 5.) There was no orientation, nothing to introduce the students to the university or get them excited about attending." Report Response
