What are your general comments?

"Went to a waiting room and checked in and had my picture taken. There were snacks, drinks, and vet students there to answer questions. Then at my time I was taken by a vet student to a couple of chairs outside the room I was to interview in. The vet student stayed until I was called in. Then I went in, met all of the interviewers (2 faculty, 1 practicing vet). Then they began by having me tell them about myself which then led to questions. It lasted a little under 30 minutes. Afterwards, I went on a tour with some friends of mine who also applied. " Report Response
