How did you prepare for the interview?

"I studied previous questions and went over my application I submitted through VMCAS since it's open file. However, the questions submitted here by others were not asked. There was nothing specific to my file that was asked in the interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers escorted us to our interview rooms instead of someone else, so we got to talk to the interviewers before the actual interview began, which took away a lot of the anxiety and stress. The interviewers also weren't blank faced the entire time like in other interviews. Mine also took me on a quick 5-10 minute tour after my interview to one of the labs we didn't get to see during the school tour." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The waiting after the lunch. If your interview is after the scheduled lunch time, you sit there and wait. So make friends or schedule an interview time closer to lunch or before!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How relaxed this interview was going to be. I was super nervous, but everyone from the informational sessions, tour guides, and interviewers were all super nice and welcoming. This was the least stressful interview I've had with a vet school thus far after it had started." Report Response
