What are your general comments?

"I could not have had a better experience for my first interview. We took the tour, then came back and ate lunch as a group while interviews were being held. My ''hot'' interviewer (who has seen your application) was so friendly and really put me at ease before we went into the room. The ''cold'' interviewer was very friendly as well. We all talked about shared hobbies and experiences in addition to the interview. The interview was very conversational, my two interviewers even cracked a few jokes about eachother - which helped me to relax. My cold interviewer asked me where I went to college, and I described my undergrad work and how I had come to be applying for veterinary school. We then talked about ethics for a while (ethical dilemmas in my past job and in my current job). Then I talked about my hobbies, asked them a question about the school, and before I knew it we were finished! The 30 minutes flew by since they were so easy to talk to. I got a call from the ''hot'' interviewer at 8:30 that night telling me I had been accepted." Report Response
