What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"They had a math problem that they made you do! It was the last question of the interview and they prefaced by saying "oh you've probably heard of our little math problem" and all I was thinking was "CRAP! I HAVE TO DO MATH? WITH THEM WATCHING ME?" but it was really an easy question, just figuring out how many pills a dog of a certain size would need for it to be the correct dosage (which they tell you)." Report Response

"What are three equine diseases? (equine was my main interest and the majority of my experience is from equine stuff)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"How will you deal with people having different opinions from you on the issue of terminal surgeries?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"After seeing that I had a couple not so good grades in O-chem and physics one interviewer asked me to convince them that I would be able to handle the rigors of vet school. (This one just threw me off guard because my grades for my last two years of undergrad were really good and I didn't get asked about grades at all in my other interviews)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Looked over my application, read the school's website, talked to a vet who went there." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"that a student was willing to give my mom and I a tour right after my interview so I wouldn't have to wait until the one at 6pm (my interview was at 9am). She was very nice : )" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There weren't any students to talk to when I first got there, one interviewer kind of seemed out to get you, one of them gave a really vague answer when I asked about their specialty. One interviewer asked if I used animals in my senior thesis, had he read the title of my thesis or anything it would have been clear that I didn't, which I found a little frustrating since it was an open-interview. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
