How did you prepare for the interview?

"Researched behavioral questions online, then sat with my wife in a coffee shop and went through each of them, coming up with several answers for each. Practiced delivering some of them to her. Did not 'memorize' answers - just let it all stay fresh in my head." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Absolutely every staff person at UMN was very polite and friendly. The interviewers did as much as possible to put me at ease (not that it helped much, but they at least tried)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour. It was given by a first year student. Halfway through she got lost in the hospital and admitted she really hadn't spent much time there yet." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they'd hit me with the general "tell me why you want to be a vet." They advertise it as a behavioral question, so I didn't sit down and really think that one out. Probably should have regardless. :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Adjust the schedule so that folks who have the 'right after lunch' interview slot aren't trying to fit the tour and lunch both into one hour. I didn't want to eat because I didn't really want to rush from eating into the interview with lettuce stuck between my teeth. :) (That said, I skipped lunch and after my interview someone from admissions saw me headed out and stopped me and asked if I had had a chance to eat; so they took care of the problem!)."
