No Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reviewing and preparing answers for questions from here, other schools, and other sources of commonly asked vet school interview questions. Also did a mock interview with a career person from my college." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was very cordial and calm. I only felt really nervous at the beginning, the end, and during a few specific questions. I really got the impression that they were not there to grill you, but to learn more about you and whether they feel you would be a good fit for the college." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing, really. I was never "grilled," and was only really pressed hard for an answer once." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they really do not stray far from a set of questions, most of which are posted here." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"They stick to the questions posted here and other places. There were only one or two questions that caught me off guard, but I feel that preparing for questions from other schools and other sources helped me come up with answers quickly. In regard to whether the interview is open or closed file, the two DVM's interviewing you will have read your file and have it in front of them, but the current vet student on the interview panel will not."
