SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'd like some input as well to whether or not I may stand a chance to get in the vet program at WSU Pullman. I have a 3.0 GPA currently, but I'm getting A's in 3 classes this semester, have two more semesters to go, and am retaking a class I got a C- on in the fall (never ever take human anatomy in the summer if its only 6 weeks long!!!!). So I expect my GPA to raise a bit, but not a ton. I'm taking the GRE in April so I don't know what my score is on that. I've been practicing though, and scheduled my date with enough time to retake if I have to so lets assume it is a fairly good score for the purposes of my question. Volunteer experience: 100 hours helping with the local "walk and knock" food drive, 100 hours at the humane society (Will be a lot higher by the time my app is due in october) 200 hours at a small animal vet clinic (would have been higher but I got hired!) Work experience: dog walking: 80 hours (again will be more by october, closer to 200 hours) pet sitter: a year of sporadic pet sitting, usually 1-2 weeks every month or 2 small animal vet tech: 200 hours (will be over 1200 by october) Animal experience: I've had pets all my life, raised and trained my dog when i was 14 (still have her ofcourse!) idk if having pets counts for much though, and then the humane society, dog walking, pet sitting and vet tech exp all counts. Leadership I was in 4H for 7 years, i was the vp for 3 years and the president for 4 years, and about half of the years i was also in the 4h ambassador club as the vp. I am starting a pre-vet club at my school this month and I will be the president of that as well. Does my extracurricular experience seem to make up for my GPA? Or does anybody have some suggestions to help my application stand out even though my gpa is pretty low? thanks guys!
