How did you prepare for the interview?

"Learned about the school, read SDN, spoke with the vets I work with about interviewing, made answers to common questions. But I think, as a 2nd time interviewee, that the most important thing you can do is to just really feel confident about why you want to be a vet and how you are going to save the world! Not in a pompous, flashy, kind of way, but one that leaves you self-assured and happy." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone seemed so happy that we (the interviewees) were there. I also love the open-minded philosophy of the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The hospitals seemed old and run down. The new student center is nice, but I don't think students even get to use the new lecture hall for most classes." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"As stupid as it sounds, I was really worried about my shoes for the tour. There was supposed to be a snow storm and I wore heels for the interview, but changing into weather-appropriate, comfy shoes was not a big deal at all. No one cared about my feet, haha." Report Response
