Closed file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Tell us about yourself." Report Response

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

"Do you have any experience with small animals?" Report Response

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

"Would you consider shifting your practice from large to small animals if the need for small animal vets grew greater than large animals in your area?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"I think the last one is an interesting question, simply because of the need for large animal vets. I assume they asked in order to know if I would "stick with" large animals instead of changing to a small animal practice later because of the convenience and increased profit." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"When they asked me to tell them about myself, it was difficult to know where to start. I knew I should highlight on aspects of my life that demonstrate leadership and good qualities of a vet school student, but I found myself running out of time." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read over my application to find the most important aspects of myself to mention in the interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interview team was very interactive during my interview and made it feel more like a conversation than an interview." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"When mentioning a time when I had to overcome an obstacle- the effects of being in a car accident- the team questioned my capabilities to work with large animals due to injuries suffered 10 years ago. I felt like they questioned my ability to perform as a potential large animal vet, although I have clearly overcome those obstacles in the 10 years between the car accident and the interview." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Knowing the questions or the topics covered would have been helpful. I understand that being prepared to answer the questions takes away from the interview aspect, but without the interview team being able to look at your application you don't want to forget to mention a very important point that the interview team should know." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I thought the overall interview went well and I enjoyed learning about the school during the reception on the night before interviews, but I feel like the interview should be able to look at applications for them to get a complete picture of the applicant's potential." Report Response

Some of the questions they asked were directly found in the application, so having that to look at before or during the interview would have been more efficient." Report Response
