What are your general comments?

"It went really well. They interviewers were very nice. My advice is: look up questions that are commonly asked during vet. school interviews and prepare your answers so that you are ready for anything they might ask. They asked exactly what I had looked up. Think of a good question to ask THEM at the end of your interview when they ask ''do you have any questions for us?'' (I asked wether they had any student vet volunteer organizations that volunteered in third world countries/central america). Be enthusiastic! I tried to impress upon them how BADLY I wanted it and how hard i had worked for it and how appreciative i was to even get to the interview stage. I made a lot of jokes and just talked to them like regular people." Report Response
