"I was a little worried about the low caseload - both small animal and large animal hospitals seemed a little slow." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really, except I wish I had come the day before and stayed overnight (I drove there 4.5 hours before interview and was sore from sitting for so long)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Basically, draw stories from ALL your experiences - personal relationships, family, jobs, animal, research, travel, etc. Don't just talk about animals. They want well-rounded people who have had different life experiences. I used my sense of humor to calm myself down in the beginning, and it wound up helping me build a repore w/ the interviewers. However, keep it clean if you're going to be witty!!" Report Response
