How did you prepare for the interview?

"It was a behavioral interview, so spent time reflecting on past experiences that would demonstrate teamwork, creative thinking, integrity, empathy, conflict management, etc. Put some thought into how I would address questions that may be raised about my application, such as not having many upper division sciences classes completed at the time. Also considered how I would respond if I totally blanked on a question. Attended the free interview prep workshop they offered beforehand, and found it useful. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"In the waiting area there were several current vet students hanging out trying to help you stay relaxed by talking to you and answering questions (although in retrospect, I wouldn't have gotten as involved in small talk with them because I think I lost a little of my focus and had to regroup during the first few minutes of the actual interview.)
