My interview is this weekend!

Hey guys! My vet school interview at missouri is this weekend! I am flying out on Saturday- the interview is sunday morning at 7:30 and then I fly back around noon that day. Any advice about vet school interviews or any interviews at all would be helpful!

Still haven't heard from any other schools- though Virginia Tech (my first choice) is supposed to let us know 'by the end of the first week on January' which would be tomorrow. I've been checking the status page and my email religiously all week.

Thanks!!

Just the next stage- but I passed the initial screening because not everyone gets an interview. Based off of this they will let me know if I get in

Look them in the eyes, keep a smile on your face when appropriate. Don't be afraid to admit you are nervous because this is something you really want. They are used to nervous.
Good luck.

Congrats again on the interview! Any chance you know the names of who will be on the interview panel? If so, I'd familiarize myself with them or notable faculty or research being accomplished there that you have a specific interest in. Just as they're interviewing you, I hope you get a chance to tour the facilities and meet with current students to see if it feels like it will be a good fit.

I agree with SheetsSM. Find out all you can about this school . Be informed. Do your homework. Do they have a mission statement?
