    my prereqs will be spread out over 4 semesters because of the requirements of taking some courses before the others when registering, etc.

    i won't start org chem 1 til next fall (08). i will be completing my prereqs in spring 09.

    should i apply next year? -- halfway through my prereqs and would be completing my prereqs the spring before entering vet school.

    or should i apply in 2 years after completing all of my prereqs?

    cubs11,

    It depends on the school(s) you are applying to. I do know that some schools will accept that a limited number of your pre-req's will be completed the spring following the submission of your application (or the spring of the year you will/may enter vet school). I was in your shoes a year ago and, now, it is coming together nicely for me to apply this fall but still have Physics II to complete next spring.

    i agree. research the schools. a number of schools just ask that your prereqs be completed before classes begin (Western). others expect them to be completed the fall before admission (T A&M?). Others dock you on your chances for interviewing if you're lacking a course (Purdue).

    Yeah I noticed that Purdue and Ohio State both clearly state that only 1 prereq course can be incomplete at the time of application. I haven't been able to find specific information for Auburn and Tennessee regarding this yet.

    I don't know that it affects interview chances to a big extent. I had 4 missing pre-reqs and was not planning on taking a course at all (and they knew it), and I still got an interview at Purdue. I did not go, so I don't know beyond that.

    It will make a difference at OSU, unless you get a petition approved.
