What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are gorgeous! The actual classroom buildings are kind of old, but they have an almost brand new equine and large animal clinic that I loved!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers didn't seem that interested in me personally, which is so different from what everybody says. I felt like they spent too much time following a set format of questions and not trying to relate them to my interests/application at all. Also, I was not impressed with the admissions staff. And having a separate application is quite a pain. Also, I could not get a hold of admissions AT ALL between getting the interview invitation and my interview (I couldn't talk to anybody until the day before my interview)-very stressful! Granted, it was during the holidays but still they should have considered that before sending out invites." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"What an animal guardian is!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school is impressive, but I was not impressed with staff at all. Considering the amount of work that the separate application is and that I didn't get good vibes from the interview, I don't know if I would go through the whole process for A&M again." Report Response
