I recently submitted my application to Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, and according to their website, I should be expecting an interview invitation in 2-4 weeks! I was wondering if anyone here has had an interview with Ross SVM? What kinds of questions did they ask? Do you have any tips? I couldn't find any interview tips for Ross Vet School on the SDN interview page. Thanks!

Hopefully someone here can help you, but if not, google "Caribbean veterinary school forum" and you will see there is another forum dedicated just to those schools... (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to directly tell you the name of it or give you a link). you might find answers there

I had an interview last spring with one of the Ross representatives. He was very, very nice. It was definitely the most laid back of the three interview I had last year (I got waitlisted to the other two schools and got admitted to Ross). I forget all of the questions, but I know he asked me what my favorite undergrad class was and why, he asked me to address why I did less than stellar in some of my classes (I had a couple of C's), he asked if I felt I was ready to handle the curriculum and why, and he asked how I felt about leaving the country and if I'd thoroughly thought it through. The only thing that disappointed me was he wasn't closely associated with the school so he couldn't answer my specific questions about the curriculum and the transition to fourth year at a different school. But he did give me the contact information for a graduate who had completed an internship in an area I was interested in. Overall my advice would be to approach the interview calmly and I think you will do fine!

Thank you! That has been helpful!

I interviewed with Ross last April. I always interview very well and always get the jobs I interview for, but this interview I felt did not go well. I could not connect with this guy much and it made for an awkward interview. He asked a lot of tough questions which I was prepared for. He asked me about some not so good grades and repeating a class. Standard stuff, but he was not engaging and looked at his computer a lot. So......as I was waiting to see if I got in I find out that my interviewer is no longer with Ross. I then find out I got accepted to their stupid prep program, which I personally feel is just another way to get money out of you. I can't help but think that this guy was on his way out and just didn't give a **** about his last few weeks of work. I was bummed, BUT... now I am happy that I did not get in. I think Ross would have been a mistake. I feel comfortable saying this since I had been preparing to go to Ross for years, and now I have had a lot of time to think and research other schools that I think I will have a chance at. If they can't take a chance on me, then screw them. Oh well, things happen for a reason. I'm sure your interviewer will be much better than mine. Don't worry. But if you don't get in, really, don't fret. It's not the end of the world. I thought it was, but it's not.
