What impressed you negatively?

"the dress code. I understand the reasoning behind it, and could definitely get used to it, but learning about it made me feel like I was back in high school again." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Starkville is very small, but I thought the school was impressive enough to make up for it. Also, I would recommend not staying at the America's Best Value Inn. It was the cheapest place I could find and very close to the vet school, but the shower water was lukewarm at best, and I was kept up half the night by people yelling outside and driving around the parking lot revving their engines (maybe that was just the one night, but it sucked the night before my interview when I was trying to get a good night's sleep!)"
