    Interview

    Advertisements



    Hello,

    I'm interviewing soon and I'm really nervous because I know at this point the interview will probably be the decisive factor... anyone has any advice?

    Thank you!

    Just be yourself. Don't try to give scripted answers to questions - at least that is what I have heard. I had a great experience except for the fact that the veterinarian interviewing me was about 2 hours late. I thought the questions were all very fair. Good luck! Where are you from?

    I guess my question really is... what does really influence acceptance?

    After being granted an interview, are my chances right now 50/50?

    SGU looks at your potential as a future veterinarian and as a student there. They don't just look at grades, which is great. So they look at you as a whole.

    Remember that even though you'll be a DVM, you will be working with people. Some people think it is funny to respond to the question, "why do you want to be a vet," by stating "because they don't like to work with people"...which is kind of humorous and possibly true in some ways...but will likely work against you.

    The DVM oath also is geared toward service to society.

    You may also be asked "if you don't get accepted, what will you do?" Probably the best answer, "Keep trying!" This was asked during my interview.

    I would guess your chances are higher than 50/50, but I don't know how many applicants they have for each round. Don't forget the essay either. At least, I think they still have an essay.
