What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were really nice.. one of them was nicer and more talkative while one was more watchful and quiet but they weren't grilling me or waiting for me to fail and they seemed genuinely interested by my answers even when I wasn't talking about my veterinary experience. Also the tour was amazing, the financial aid presentation and admissions presentations were really helpful and the student panel was IMMENSELY helpful. I had gone in nervous and hopeful but not really that concerned with Ohio State specifically as opposed to my other schools, and I was sure I wasn't going to get in, and I left LOVING IT and just dying to get in. Which I did! =]" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my flights would get cancelled! and getting home would be a nightmare...that I should definitely have rented a car bc my hotel was not close to the school or airport and we spent a ton of money on cabs.. to RELAX because they really just want to learn about you and you do have a shot!!"
