What impressed you positively?

"Afterwards I felt like the interview was really to get you to talk about yourself and your experiences related to vet med, not to grill you about the intricacies of your application or your ethics. The meet and greet was really great, I highly recommend going, I was on the fence but after it really calmed the whole process down for me. I would describe the day as a mix between a science fair and conference, but just about yourself, if anyone has experience with either and that calmed me down a bit for thinking about future interviews." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They tried to make it conversational, the student interviewer asked me follow-up questions based on my experiences which was nice and I felt like she was genuinely interested in my background (studying anthropology and working at a bakery) but I think its a little challenging to do so because they have a list of questions the school wants them to ask." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It sounds like they don't always read your application, mine had but I think that is worth noting." Report Response

What are your general comments?
