What are your general comments?

"Like everyone said, everything was laid back. Make sure you talk in-depth with 2 or 3 of the students, since they have input. Basically the only question I was asked was ''tell us about yourself and why you chose vet-med.'' That was it. I brought up ethics and avian flu, and they barely even acknowledged it. Bizarre, considering that others were attacked on these issues. The only thing they really cared about was a brief overview of my experience, what I want to do with vet-med, and an in-depth talk about my research. Maybe this was because my research was somewhat related to the research of the cold interviewer. He did ask me where I see myself in 5/10 years, but it was pretty much where the conversation was going anyway." Report Response
