How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read information about the interview process on the school's website, and read SDN to try to get an idea of some specific questions they might ask (And I had seen the committment question on here, which they ended up asking!) I also tried to think of a variety of experiences I'd had which could serve as answers for different questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was very friendly and willing to answer all my questions. My interview ended up going over by about half an hour, mainly because I was asking questions (which my interviewers were more than willing to answer). The interview was laid back and the interviewers seemed genuinely interested to hear what I had to say. Furthermore, the campus was BEAUTIFUL and the facilities were amazing. I was also incredibly impressed by the sense of community between the students, and the steps taken by the University to foster that feeling." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was perhaps a bit cold.... (-3 degrees, w/o windchill, at some points)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known more about the dual degree DVM/MPH program so I could have asked about it in my interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first thought coming out of the interview was literally ''I'm not sure how I did, but I had fun!'' This was obviously NOT how I expected to come out feeling. The interviewers were impossible to read in terms of whether they were happy with my answers or not, but at the same time they seemed interested to hear what I had to say and were very laid-back.
