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

"No "tell us about yourself" question, no "why OSU" question. In no specific order: 1) How much does OSU cost? 2) Why do you want to be a vet and not something else in the animal world? 3) General clinical pathology questions such as 'what's your favorite part of clin path', 'which chemistry analyzer did ya'll use', etc." Report Response | I was asked this question too

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

"4) How do you de-stress? 5) What's a biochemical change in vet med that will affect the field in the future? 6) The 'old dog euthanization' question. " Report Response | I was asked this question too

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"7) Where do you see the field of vet med heading? 8) What was the most interesting case you've seen? A lot of the questions were tailor-made to me. In fact, one of my interviewers was a clinical pathologist, so we talked a lot about my clin path experiences. " Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most interesting question?

"As a lead off from the most interesting case question: "Why do you think a cat's skin would just peel off like that?"" Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most difficult question?

"We talked about my MBA some and about the financing of vet school. I mentioned that I wanted to open up my own clinic and so they asked how much does it cost to open a clinic? I'd never done any grand amount of research on that topic (will cross that bridge when I get a bit closer to it lol) so I had to kind of guess." Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, interview feedback, practicing with a web cam to see facial ticks and the like, wrote out answers to the most 'popular' questions, etc. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The vet school. It's humongous! There's so many cases there and the students have a lot of free reign too. They don't do terminal surgeries. Not that I'm against TS, but it's nice to know they don't. Faculty, staff, and students were all happy to be there." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. The cold maybe? Not sure they can do much about that, I hear it's a seasonal thing. Personally I blame Canada." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not really something I wished *I* had known, but I'm sure someone did. Some people had been sitting in the lounge for HOURS. One girl had been there 6 already and still had 4 more to go. Not sure why they got there so early but I'm sure it was not much fun. As an interviewee, they said you're welcome to walk around the building and can go upstairs to the library to read or get on the computers or whatever. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Definitely a school worth the price tag. One thing that irked me was where I stayed, The Blackwell. For one, they refused to give me the Winter Special, even though I was within the time window, so to stay there was $147 vs $111. The lobby was a $150 lobby, but they only had $50 rooms. Most impressive part was a flat screen TV in the room and I could've happily forgone that for a cheaper rate. They do run a shuttle to airport and back, but it's in hour and fifteen minute intervals, so you better plan way ahead if you want to use it. The good is that they're very close to the vet school. It's only about a 15 minute walk from the hotel and they give you a campus map. Very easy to find your way (head past the stadium, then to the huge tower, and go over the bridge. Can't miss it). Bad part was the power went out. A utility truck had hit a generator and the entire hotel was without power. They eventually (8 hours later) transferred us to another hotel and covered our expenses, so I got to stay free the night I was there essentially. They also covered one of my cab rides too since I could no longer walk to the vet school, so that was nice. But unless you can get the hotel at a special rate, staying there isn't really much bang-for-your-buck. You won't save enough on taxi fare to make it worth while. " Report Response
