    • Stand Out In Interviews “Just so you know, my interviewers at OSU were completely fascinated by my Belize stories, so thats something you can tell students that come in with hopes of applying to vet school. They loved hearing about our "third world" spay/neuter clinics using zip tie ligatures, doing surgery completely under the use of injectables (no gas), and no autoclaves. My interview went so well, they called me less than a week later to tell me I was accepted! Naturally, they asked me other things, but Belize was the first subject that came up so it was definitely a major stepping stone to get into vet school.” C. V. A.
