What impressed you positively?

"The Veterinary Teaching Hospital, the faculty, the students, the atmosphere, the research facilities (especially BRI)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was somewhat negatively impressed by the town, but very positively impressed by K-State. The people, the research, the programs, the facilities, it all was great. The interview itself was very low stress, much more conversational than you would imagine an interview to be. There were plenty of follow-up questions within the context of the conversation (tell us more about this, etc.) but on the whole it flowed very easily." Report Response
