What impressed you positively?

"The admissions committee at MSU is unlike any other veterinary school. They go out of their way to accommodate each applicant and they make you feel extremely welcome. I was impressed with the fact that everyone was provided with a mentor, this was very helpful. I also like the fact that MSU student start surgery during 2nd year and that each student gets their own personal area in the anatomy lab. The orientations was also very informative, it helped you to learn more about the school so there were not any “surprises” later on." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Light clinical case load (but that is to be expected in a small town). I was very unimpressed with the tour, it was not informative at all. The student basically showed us some doors and said "This is small animal, this is large animal". That was it. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Starkville is a cute town, I grew up in a rural town so I enjoyed the atmosphere but it may be a slight culture shock to some. The school is beaming with genuine southern hospitality. I felt comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process. They treat you like a real person rather that just an application fee! Out of all the schools that I have visited MSU is by far the most courteous to their applicants. " Report Response
