What impressed you positively?

What are your general comments?

"There are tours running throughout the day every 2 hours or so. If you get there early enough you can go on a tour before your interview, or you can wait around after your interview and go on one. They take your picture, have you input your preferred address to send your letter to, and have a Tablet PC out to try. Other than your interview, that's really about it. There are current vet students circulating around while you are waiting and they will answer any questions. They also take you to your interview room and take you on your tour. There is a pizza party later in the evening that is casual where you can ask current vet students questions. Overall it is very laid-back, so don't worry too much!" Report Response
