What was the most interesting question?

"None were interesting, since they were all things I'd seen on SDN and were pretty straightforward." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The one about disease outbreaks. I had several answers, luckily, but wasn't really expecting it, and they seemed to be looking for a specific answer that I didn't give. Though they did seem a little surprised by my wildlife answers (since I'm small animal focus). The vaccination question, since I blanked on vaccination laws, heh." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN questions, mock interview at my school, talking over my answers with friends and coworkers." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was super friendly and positive. They didn't try to trick me. The school was lovely. In the waiting room, they had really outgoing students talking to us (voluntarily, in their free time!) and a really cute yellow lab." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The hospital was nearly empty in the middle of the day during the week. There didn't seem to be a lot going on, and everyone seemed to have plenty of time to come talk to us about things (which was nice, but I was curious as to why they weren't busier). I had to walk all the way across the building to the place where we interviewed from where we waited, which was kind of awkward." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they are allowed to ask you "illegal" questions." Report Response

What are your general comments?
