"If you were a cartoon character, who would you be? I kid you not, this is the only question I drew a blank on...because it caught me off guard!" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read all of the SDN interview feedback entries for UF. I printed out about a page worth of interview questions. I went through and wrote down answers to most of the questions. This was really helpful in refreshing my memory of all my life experiences (not just animal science, work, or college related). Then, the night before my interview, I answered out loud each of the questions as if I was being interview right then...I probably looked crazy talking to myself." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The attitude and comraderie among all of the vet students. Also, the plans and simulated images of their new animal hospital...it will be amazing when it is completed in 2010." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The construction of the new animal hospital... but hey, it will all be done in a year or so." Report Response

"Not to wear my high heels for the tour! It lasts a little over an hour...thank goodness I had flip flops in the car for the ride home!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the impression I got of UF this year was much better than last year (I had interviewed in 2008). The students had an amazing attitude and you could tell their class was supportive of one another, rather than competitive. It's also great to know they have a lot of clubs that are all very active.
