What are your general comments?

"It was a great experience! Very laid back, I didn't feel nervous at all. I was greeted at the door by a group of first years, one of whom led me to the pre-interview room. They had water and snacks (take the water in the room with you, you'll need it!) and we were able to interact with our fellow applicants and other first-years at the school. The interview panel consists of a UF clinician, another Florida-based veterinarian, and a 3rd or 4th year student. At your appointed time, the student comes to get you and take you to the interview room. It lasts 50 minutes and it really does fly by. I was nervous about that because my previous interviews were all under 30 minutes. Afterwards, you go to a post-interview room where you have a chat with the Associate Dean of Admissions. Each interview group gets a tour and then you're free to go!" Report Response
