What was the most interesting question?

"What is something that our communities will need to work on in the next five years that is not related to veterinary medicine? (I thought the question was kind of vague but I was able to come up with a response about working together, not sure if its what they wanted though....)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Tell us about a case you saw in one of the practices you have experience in. Tell us about the presenting symptoms, any tests, the diagnoses, treatment, the outcome, and anything you would have done differently. I hadn't been in a clinic in almost a year so it was hard to remember so much detail! They also asked for more detail but I just told them I didn't remember and I think they appreciated that I didn't make something up." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN! Most of the questions were already on here so it really helped! And I did a mock interview at my school." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The people were very helpful and nice. The city felt pretty friendly and safe as well. Everyone seemed to be really supportive of one another." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. I wish there had been more going on in the hospital. On the tour we just peered into a bunch of dark rooms so it was hard to imagine it when its really busy." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The pizza party is pretty informal but really helpful. They have a student panel that will answer lots of questions and you get to meet some other prospective students!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was definitely an interview, but it wasn't too stressful. There were 2 faculty members and a local vet. They were friendly and joked but they always were very professional and focused on getting the answers to their questions. They left a lot of time for me to ask questions, so I was happy I had thought of some beforehand." Report Response
