    ALRIGHT who’s applying this cycle?

    I will be starting my first year of vet school at CSU in a few short days and I was in your exact position this time last year. So I know how stressful this is for you, trust me I get it.

    Feel free to post any school specific questions / rants / raves / musings here.

    Good luck and GO RAMS

    Is it true that CSU likes trending upward GPA's? Definitely want to apply but my GPA is holding me back. I have a 3.1 cumulative right now but last 45 and pre-req's is MUCH higher.

    Absolutely. My cumulative GPA was lower than yours because I struggled a lot at the beginning of college. I had a lot going on in my personal life and explained that in my application. My last 3 years of college were a 3.97, so they saw that I made a drastic change for the better.

    With that being said, GPA is still very important so make sure the rest of your application makes up for it. Don’t be lagging behind in any other category (experience, GRE, LOR’s etc)

    since you had a similar cGPA..did they let you know status of your application earlier? I know they say they do an early review for people with cGPA less than 3.2

    Happy I'm not the only one constantly checking the portal!

    I saw 1836 people applied to CSU OOS last year. That seems like a much higher number than any other school, which made the chance of acceptance 2.9% OOS, yikes! ... The kind of stuff I like to calculate when I want to stress myself out.

    Nope. I found out I got an interview the same time as everyone else at the end of November. I didn’t get any emails before that except for them confirming I submitted my application.

    I applied to CSU as well! I'm an OOS applicant and I currently attend CSU for undergrad. I've been anxiously checking everything all the time. All of my application and eLOR stuff has been received. I'm super anxious to hear back from any of the schools I applied to.

    I'm an OOS applicant and am so glad everything has been downloaded for my app! CSU is one of my top 2 school choices! Waiting until December to hear any news is making me so anxious but I am also super excited for the prospect of hearing some, hopefully, good news :)

    I know it’s impossible to not think about it everyday but try not to obsess over it! If it happens it happens, if it doesn’t it doesn’t. It’s completely out of your control now (except for making good grades this semester - focus on that!) so stressing about it won’t change anything.

    Also a bit of advice so you’re not checking your phone every 5 minutes, go ahead and mark every address you’ve gotten a CSU email from as VIP (like the dvm admissions one). That way it will alert you on your phone when you get a new message from them :p

    I learned from SDN last year that this is something people do, and I know myself well enough to realize that I would do the same. So I made a new e-mail address just for vet school stuff, and that's what I used to apply. However, when I get any notification from that e-mail I nearly pass out :rofl:

    What is the interview process like? I see that have Jan 19-20 for interview dates. Is it a 2 day event or the same schedule each day just for different candidates?

    It’s a one day event. Half of the people will interview on Saturday, the other half on Sunday. The interview itself was only maybe an hour but there is also a sit down lunch that’s provided, a tour, Q&A panel, several people do some talks like the dean and the financial advisor. They also had an optional dinner “soirée” (as they called it lol) later that evening after the interviews where you could talk to current vet students and the professors.

    It ends up being the whole day. I wanna say I started at around 10 and ended at 6? And that’s not including the dinner which I didn’t go to.

    Wear comfortable shoes. And a warm coat.

    Also I can confirm that we had a record breaking amount of applicants this year, 2,400 is what I was told by a professor.

    Congratulations on surviving the minefield last year. Were you in-state or Out?

    It went to my spam so you should check there. But I'm sure that e-mail is not an indication on anything!
