How did you prepare for the interview?

"Checked out the questions on SDN, but they revamped the interview this year (2016) so the questions no longer really apply. It's more of a general discussion about your veterinary experience. They ask you three questions to help prompt you into a discussion." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Really personable interviewers, very friendly. They were easy to talk to. My ambassador who showed me around the school and answered all my questions was really great and friendly as well. She also brought us to the different rooms for our interview or test and made sure that we were never secluded or lost. Really brought about a sense of belonging in the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Since this was the first year implementing the new interview system they have in place, the timing of everything was a little off. We would be left with thirty minutes to an hour and a half of waiting around until our next activity, be it the W-SAB or the interview, began, depending on what activity we had just completed. I'm sure next year they will refine everything." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"No need to stress, everyone, including the deans, are incredibly friendly and helpful. Also, bring comfortable shoes for touring the school and walking to the meal hall!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"They need to refine their organization a little bit for the interview day, but since it was the first year they implemented the new way of doing things, it's understandable." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"It would be really nice if there was some way to automate the application system. I know certain schools have an online component so you can see the status and progress of your application. For example, it shows you whether all your supplemental documents (such as GRE results), have been received. That would be a nice touch to implement so all the applicants are constantly bombarding the admissions office with emails to check on the status of their application." Report Response
