What are your general comments?

"I waited in the waiting room for about 10 minutes while the interviewers went over my file. One interviewer brought me back and talked with me on the way to the interviewing room. She introduced me to the other two doctors and then we just sat down and talked about stuff that was in my application. ''Why do you want to be a vet, tell us about the hospital you worked at, what are you aspirations for when you graduate from vet school, what will you do if you don't get in?'' They were very friendly and non-intimidating. After they were done asking questions we talked about politics and living in College Station and various other things about the school. They gave me some information about when letters would be sent and scholarships for out of state students. " Report Response
