Open file

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

"What are/were your favorite and least favorite classes in undergad? Why? (If your answer to either is a science course, then be very prepared to defend your answer because they will prod you about it!)" Report Response

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

"What extracurricular activities have best prepared you to run your own practice as a veterinarian? (I don't want to run my own practice, so I told them that and then answered the question anyway lol.)" Report Response

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

"Where do you see yourself in ten years? What about Mizzou convinced you to apply here? What jobs outside of a clinic do vets hold? What is your biggest flaw/weakness? What are the best and worst parts of veterinary medicine as a whole?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"The question regarding which extracurricular activities helped prepare me for (hypothetically) owning my own practice some day. It really made me think objectively about my experiences and how they've all come together to prepare me for a future as a vet." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The question regarding my biggest flaw/weakness. I'm glad that I expected to receive this question and thought it out well before my interview, as I'm sure I would have stumbled or put my foot in my mouth otherwise." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read all the interview feedback for Mizzou and several other schools, took the time to think about how I might answer more difficult questions, and then did my best to clear my head of it so I wouldn't sound scripted or rehearsed during the interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything. I fell in love with the campus and the people from the moment I arrived. It's just one of those places where strangers treat you like family and you feel like you've just arrived home when you get there." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How relaxed the whole process would be. Knowing that several people would be interviewing me terrified me at first, but they each spoke to me separately and I was able to focus on the person who was asking the question, as opposed to the entire room. I also wish that I had known how personable and friendly the interviewers would be. Everyone made jokes and funny side comments throughout the interview, and I felt as though we were just having a conversation and that they were truly interested in getting to know me, not in making me trip or harpooning me for even thinking that I belonged there. It was like a 15 minute group hug with a table separating us all LOL." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If you stay at the Courtyard Marriott on LeMone (and you should!), specifically ask for the courtesy shuttle to take you to and pick you up from your interview. They'll pick you up from and take you to the airport, as well, so it saves a ton of money!" Report Response
