Congratulations on making the first cut! The only thing standing between you and your first day of veterinary school is an interview. For many people, the thought of interviewing makes them sick. Relax, it does not have to be that way. With proper preparation, you can distinguish yourself from other applicants and secure a place in the incoming class.
