How did you prepare for the interview?

"I looked through the schools website and did some research about the school and its programs. Then I looked up what a behavioral interview was and looked up types of questions. I started practicing what I would say and came up with how I would answer different types of behavioral questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I really loved how welcoming everyone was. Truly I had such a positive experience with their "student ambasadors" who are first through 3 year students who volunteer to give tours, mingle and eat lunch with you, as well as share personal stories and insight. They had a student panel which I thought was a really cool idea because we could ask any questions we wanted and they had a student from each year. The school/students also offered ride to the school for your interview if you were staying at a nearby hotel! What service!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didnt like the cold weather, but thats not within their control. Aside from that they were very accommodating and fed us well. It would be nice if they offered free parking, however it didn't affect me because I was dropped off. Some of the other students were miffed though." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish their idea of "refreshments" on the Friday night Equine Center tour (an optional event to mingle with students and see the equine facility) had more than just cookies and cider." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had an interview with two people and they wer very nice. I found that the whole interview was very well organized and when I got accepted the whole process of notifying us was very streamlined. Also from what I heard they kept the waitlisted people updated on their spots, so overall I would say their admissions office is very well prepared and friendly." Report Response
