What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The interview preparation packet I received did not adequately prepare me for the questions I received in my interview. According to the packet, I was to be prepared for ethical questions and questions related to current veterinary trends. I studied up on both of those topics very thoroughly, but was asked nothing along those lines. Instead, I was asked to make a personal statement to open the interview (I was unaware of this), and the questions were to come from my statement. I was completely prepared for an interview I never received. I did well during the interview, I just wanted to comment that the preparation guide misled me in terms of what to expect. I don't know if my experience was unusal or the norm, but it definitely added to my stress level during that time." Report Response
