What are your general comments?

"It was well organized and friendly. You start with a talk from the admissions director (basically Q&A), then a tour by a student, then you are put in a room for 3 hours with the other 30 interviewees and about 10 students. They have input at the end of the day, so make sure you talk to them and ask them questions, esp ones that they might remember. Other questions included: Tell me about yourself (from the cold interviewer), describe an interesting veterinary experience, why UPenn, where I saw myself in 10 years (hard, but I answered vaguely), and why not human med. I was called that night with an offer of admission." Report Response
