What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Simple math question about medication dosage calculation." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read practice questions I found online, reviewed my vmcas and supplemental apps, discussed interview strategies and how to answer difficult questions with career counselor from my undergrad" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Admissions secretary/coordinator was always very helpful and quick to respond. Tour guide was enthusiastic and answered lots of questions...she also took me to dinner with some other current students. Had a horse handling class for interviewees to attend (weekly class designed to help students unfamiliar with horses become more comfortable)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Had been told there would be students (and possibly a dog) waiting in the lobby to answer questions, but no one was there--perhaps because my interview was at the end of the day. Hard to get pamphlets, etc. when researching schools." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
