What was the most interesting question?

"Can't remember any specific questions, I was asked a lot of ''behavioral'' questions." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I was asked to choose a scientific, animal-related topic, and asked to explain it to a lay-person without using any scientific terminology." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I practiced interview questions compiled from the internet and read up on current events. It's a waste to do those things, since they have changed the format for the UF interviews. They will be asking behavioral questions, if you don't know what that is, google it and there will be lots of links. I would suggest you practice behavioral questions as much as possible before your interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The setting, a round table with all three interviewers and myself arranged around it equally. It was less intimidating than I expected." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much, I got stuck on the one question I found difficult, the rest of the interview was great and the tour was wonderful." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There are lots of grates around the barns! Don't wear heels if you can help it (and if you plan on taking the interview). I also wasn't aware that the questions were going to be behavioral, luckily I practice that method of interviewing for other schools." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was overall very pleasant. My interview was in the late afternoon, and I showed up an hour early. I went into the academic building of the vet school, found the classroom where we were meant to wait and discovered a nametag and a list of my interviewers. They also had water, sodas and snacks, and freshman vet students in the room to answer questions. Dean Thompson (the dean of admissions) personally came to us and spoke to us for a while before interviews started. Then one of your interviewers would come and fetch you to the room where you would interview. The interviews were scheduled to last 50 minutes, but mine lasted an hour. After the interview was over, I took a tour of the veterinary hospital/academic building." Report Response
