What impressed you positively?

"They match you up with interviewers who share your interests and areas of expertise. I got a goat reproduction specialist and a bovine ambulatory doctor. We got to talk a lot about the large animal industry instead of just nitpicking at my application, which was fun and interesting. I ended up getting in and they were even nice enough to sign the bottom of my letter. The only thing that was strange was that they asked me so many dairy questions! Luckily, I had just covered a lot of the hot topics in my Dairy Herd class, but hadn't really focused my entire undergrad on dairy cows." Report Response

"Nothing! The area isn't the most glamorous, but its not horrible. Tufts is nestled in its own little backwoods area." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really, I felt prepared from reading stuff off of SDN." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a very enjoyable interview and tour. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They just hung out in the waiting room and talked to everyone between tours. The small animal hospital was equipped with a brand new oncology ward and had tons of nifty machines. The large animal hospital wasn't huge, but had a very cool sport medicine testing center. There was also a wildlife center, and lots of farm land! If you aren't from New England and aren't used to blisteringly cold weather, make sure to wear extra clothing." Report Response
