    Hello! Any advice for interviews this week? What did you do to prepare? Were there any questions that took you off guard? Also, what is the general format about the interview (open file, one on one, etc.)?

    Lastly, were there supplemental essays for Ohio? I saved all of my essays this year on a drive and there was not one for Ohio...

    Just prepare by looking up behavioral interview questions and having answers prepared that can be adjusted depending on the specific question. Review your file and try to incorporate your experiences. They were not clear if it was open or closed, and ohio didn't have any specific essays. I had 2 interviewers.

    I'd feel uncomfortable saying what the specific questions were, because some are being used for all applicants, and the point is to be able to respond well as you are asked, not to have specific answers prepared--also, then you'd run the risk of sounding rehearsed.

    But again, if you just review standard behavioral interview questions and prepare general responses (i.e. applicable stories), you should be in good shape.

    Agreed with above, I have heard interviews are either closed or open file - mine was theoretically open file but I wasn't asked anything from my application and treated it as an essentially a closed file interview. Just have alot of little stories about your life and how you handle different situations - teamwork, challenges, leadership, mentoring ect. My interviewers were two local vets.

    ^^ Ditto to this response. Based on conversations I had with another interviewee on interview day, we decided that it was unclear whether they had or had not read the application. Best to just give a brief overview of the scenario so the interviewers know what you're talking about. Or you can just flat out ask "I'm not sure how much you know about my background from my application, so can you let me know how in detail you'd like me to go on my background experience?" Just thinking out loud. Good luck everyone!!! This wait is killing me and we're only 5-ish days in! Ah!

    Based on my experience it was open file. I had the same generic behavioral type questions but my one interviewer began a leadership question by saying he saw I was an Eagle Scout. Then the only application based question I was asked was what my final Eagle Scout project was and what I learned from it.

    It was definitely open file based on my experience. I was asked the generic behavioral questions but I was also asked a bunch about my research and even about a scholarship I had received coming out of high school.

    Is Ohio State a tracking school?

    They are, but they have an individualized track where you get to choose elective rotations more so you can focus on what you want to.

    Not in the normal sense of tracking. Years 1-3 everyone takes the same core classes. Starting second semester you get to choose elective classes

    During 4th year you get to choose what career area of emphasis (cae) you want. Each cae has the same core rotations that everyone has to take (14 rotations?) as well as vacation/elective/holiday rotations. The difference is in the rotations specific to that cae

    Rarely are people allowed to do individualized. You have to prove that it's something not covered by the other cae's (companion animal, mixed, equine, large animal). It's also a ton of work as you have to set up all rotations besides your core rotations. Pathology, zoo, aquatics are some of the individualized cae's I know off the top of my head

    Did you interview? It may seem like a lot of people have already heard but the reality is that it’s a very small percentage. Most will hear in Feb.

    I didn't like the class but I loved the cardio rotation. Might be better now that they have another doctor teaching some of the lectures. She's awesome at taking complex ideas and making them really easy to understand. Cardio was one of my favorite rotations. As for doctor-ing, I love it and I love my practice. We will have a new building in a few months!

    Current 3rd year here! Congratulations to those who have been accepted! For those of you who haven’t heard anything yet, just sit back and try to relax. I was waitlisted at #2 for in-state and due to some weird algorithms my year, didn’t get off until July. Feel free to ask me any questions:) Good luck.
