Tuttley, TurtleLover and hopeful21 (is that right?) -

Post them in the thread! Just copy the list into an email, add your school alphabetically and your name; that way we can have a running list.

Congrats!!:clap:

I'm not sure I did that right. Did I? Or is it supposed to appear as the same message started? I don't really know how to work this thing, maybe you can try to tell me how to do it in more details?

So when are you starting? AKA, when can I start bombarding you and annoying you with advice? ;)

And of course, congrats to everyone else. :)

I just wanted to bump this thread up so that nobody would mistakenly post on the Acceptances: Class of 2012 thread.

University of Edinburgh: Zoonose (12/15 email, GEP) hopefulvet21 (12/15 email, GEP)

Hey Zoonose, they gave me a conditional offer (I have to get at least a B in orgo lab I and vertebrate anatomy). I already know I got an A in orgo lab I and I am pretty confident I can get above a B in anatomy. But what struck me a little was that they said in the email "after reviewing your work record, we recommend that you gain additional experience in all areas before enrolling..." I mean, I know I don't have a ton of experience, but I have about 7-800 hours across three different areas of vet med and I feel like they sort of singled me out and I'm a bit discouraged :( I don't really want to go to Edinburgh anyway, but that definitely puts a damper on my spirit for chances at RVC and I fully expect to get completely rejected from US schools. I was just wondering if yours said anything similar or you were given a conditional offer too?

I'm excited, of course, but not sure why it's the 5-year program. i hold a biology degree. does anyone know why that would happen? i'm afraid that 5 years of tuition might put it out of reach for me.

Hey, my best educated guess is that it is pretty much based on your grades alone (not acceptance to the overrall school, but to get into the GEP) I say that because I still got into the GEP, and like I said above, they sort of commented that I should get more experience, but my grades are still pretty high. Just a thought. And to everyone who was just accepted there, I visited the school this year and it was pretty nice. I also had the pleasure of going out with a bunch of 2nd year GEP students because I have a friend attending there. They were so much fun! I couldn't keep up with them, I guess they need to drink off all that stress on the weekend- and Scotland is certainly not lacking in lots of pubs to drink at. I think I am considering Edinburgh just because I had so much fun that weekend!

hey hopeful. I wouldn't stress too much about the experience. UoE doesn't really emphasize experience for acceptance (it's odd that they put that comment into your letter). Trust me when I say that a lot of students, even in the GEP, have not seen much practice. And, if you don't get into other schools you can have a review of your application portfolio to find out what is missing. Experience is the easiest thing to make up (aquire, not invent) and you can always try again the following year. Many people have to apply 2 or 3 times before getting into vet school, so don't give up hope!
