How did you prepare for the interview?

"I went over my VMCAS application since most of the stuff was similar. Reviewed my recent research projects, and read up on a number of different things in the curriculum." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus is beautiful, the facilities look great, and I like how the campus is small and spaced out, not all scrunched together. The Tufts community seems really tight - knit, and I was impressed that so many of the faculty there were residents who liked it too much to leave! Further, the curriculum at Tufts really tries to get students interacting with animals from the start - not every day, but once every few weeks you'll spend some time learning how to handle every species. A particular emphasis is put on getting first years experience with farm animals, as they assume that most of their students come in with little to no FA experience." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Large animal hospital doesn't really take too many cattle, so student experience working cattle cases are with the ambulatory rotation, although that's extremely hands-on from what I gathered. However, students do get a lot of experience getting handling experience with the dairy cows there." Report Response

No Response

"Being from rural New England, Tufts felt very home-like, from the land to the architecture. A beautiful campus, nicely tucked away with a great community of veterinarians and researchers alike, with similar goals." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Personally, I'm a fan of the separate application for Tufts. It was 1) cheaper, and 2) asked some interesting questions, and I think it's a benefit that it filters out people that would apply just because it's a click away." Report Response
