"Nothing really" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities were old, they didn't really care whether I was there or not. The students seemed indifferent. Chambana is much more geared towards their almost 40,000 undergraduates, who I'm really not in the mood to deal with during my 4 years of vet school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I originally planned on being there at 8, but then realized that the schedule was so unstructured that I didn't really need to be there until 3:30 (my interview was at 4). I slept forever and then drove around for a while. I didn't bother to go on any tours, or go to the information session about...tablet PCs (I really don't know why they bothered with this). I showed up at 3 and ''registered'', which involved someone's secretary throwing a folder at me. The interviewers seemed tired and ready to go home. I think I did well but I don't really care anymore." Report Response
