I have my interview for vet school on Friday, so I have been looking up information, answering 'vet school interview' questions, and trying to prepare myself. It's not hard homework, but I definitely wouldn't go in their blind without thinking of things to say.
I've been thinking about things like 1- My most memorable vet experience 2- the tell me about yourself (which all I have is I'm the middle child of 5 and my name haha) 3- why I want to be a veterinarian 4- my strengths and weaknesses 5- the difference between animal rights and animal welfare 6- 5 qualities of a great veterinarian 7- why i chose this particular school 8- what i would do if i didn't get accepted 9- where i see myself 5, 10, 20 years from now 10- scenarios- ex. you have a mare that is in foal. The foal is worth a lot of money. The mare has a tumor in her lungs and can't breath. She is going to die. The foal is only at 8 months (out of 11). What will you do? (I don't know what I would do BTW! You would have to ask can a foal live at 8 months gestation? Would you just euthanize both of them? Do you have another mare on hand that just by chance lost her baby within the past 3 or 6 hours that would adopt the foal? Would it get colostrum? I don't know these things... Guess I better look that up!) and finally, 11- Do I believe in using live animals in research/at the veterinary teaching hospital?
They say it's best not to memorize answers and blurt them out, so I've just been going over everything and making sure I know what I need to know and have stuff floating around in my head that I can use! Hopefully all goes well!
Today I went and bought my suit. Trusty, rusty JCPenny saved me a total of $51. Sweet! I was thinking I was going to have to spend $150 to $200- nope... $69.53 is all I spent. Then I went to Target on a celebration trip and bought some jewelry :) I love buying jewelry. Especially the long necklaces with animals on them. I have an elephant and a whale! Mema gave me a fish for christmas and I got a butterfly a long time ago.
So I'll be on my way to Auburn on Thursday night after work! I hope everyone has a great week! :)
Oh I went to the rodeo! I'll do a post on that later!
