What impressed you positively?

"The VTH is pretty new and has a lot of equipment. Also, one can freely move into the hospital from the rest of the school, so if you have 10 minutes between classes you can quickly run over there and see what's going on. The campus is very nice, and there are comfortable chairs in the lecture hall. The faculty and students seemed happy that everybody there had chosen to accept the interview invitation." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The weather in Pullman isn't the best and it's about an hour and a half away from the major airport." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing much." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was pretty good. They were running about an hour late, so that was a little annoying. The interviewers seemed to enjoy the interview, and didn't make it hard or push me further on any questions. I have heard that those who are questionable admits have their interview with the chair of the admissions committee and they had tougher interviews (more medical type questions and interviewers telling them they probably wouldn't get in, so what will you do instead?). You also have to spend 15 minutes writing an essay responding to a topic they give you (ours was about the veterinarian's role in preventing an H5N1 outbreak in the US). Overall, though, the interview was very relaxed and pleasant." Report Response
