What impressed you positively?

"The guest reviewers understood my withdrawal from veterinary school and seemed to be sympathetic." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only faculty interviewer in the room pulled out his phone and began checking it as I was answering a question. This seemed very unprofessional and spoke poorly for both the school and that faculty member. Also, this same faculty member was very insensitive to the fact that my prior withdrawal to veterinary school was not by choice and was forced due to necessary surgery and seemed to think that this was an unfair use of a seat in the class because it might happen again even though I had previously stated I have been cleared by my doctor to proceed with veterinary school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"N/A" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The closed folder interview system is an inefficient way of getting to know applicants. In another veterinary school interview, interviewers had a copy of each students VMCAS in front of them for reference; this allowed them to ask targeted questions and not waste time trying to understand things that were thoroughly documented in the VMCAS. I was extremely dissatisfied with the professionalism of the faculty member and felt attacked simply because he could not seem to understand my circumstances." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The supplemental application setup is primitive and should really be updated so that progress can be saved under an applicant's name and accessed later. The fact that it has to all be done in a word processor is extremely inconvenient. At interview day there were no opportunities for tours of the facilities and so I still do not know what the conditions of the facilities are. I feel that this is something that is vital to the interview day experience and to making a decision on attendance to a school. I have not been to a single interview day that did not have tours except for LSU." Report Response
