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

"What are some different areas one can get involved in with a DVM degree? (i.e. different careers outside SA clinical practice)" Report Response

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

"Do you like Columbus so far? (I answered, "No," and I still got accepted to the school. They commiserated w/me about rush hour traffic, which unfortunately was my first impression of the city.)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Why do sheep make a good model for orthopaedic research? (This was specific to my work experience.)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Tell us about yourself. This was the first question and, when nervous, I think it's the most difficult to answer well w/out rambling and/or emphasizing the wrong things. I talked much more about my interest in farming than about my interest in vet med, although I think my presence there made the latter obvious." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"reviewed my vmcas & suppl. app. Repeated visits to avma.org & DVM360 for current events, although I was never asked about current events." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The very relaxed, casual style. We were chatting as if we were out to lunch." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Couldn't handle being around a bunch of chatty, nervous applicants. I showed up 40 mins before my interview, and wandered down the hall to be by myself." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I wasn't going to be asked any of the questions that I had prepared for! I really had the strong feeling from the moment the interview started that I had already been accepted & we were just hanging out, sort of killing time. SO comfortable & informal!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Even tho' they designate a lunch hour, no one actually says anything about it when you are there. Food boxes just get set out, and you better grab one when you have the chance! I got the last one." Report Response
