Wow I'm surprised how many people are getting in on their first try. I had always heard that it's impossible to get in on your first try, and almost everyone has to reapply again and again. I think it's very difficult to improve your application once all of the schools have already said no, hoping that just one school will see something a little different the second or third time around. Seeing this poll, I might have given up after the first try...
i think its just the quality of the applicants on sdn. i go to an undergrad with lots of pre-vets and unfortunately, most do not get in on their first try. so to current/future applicants: don't get discouraged!
I agree with k9...maybe this sdn crowd isn't representative of the entire applicant pool. After all, the people that are on here all seem to be so much better prepared and have researched every tiny aspect of the process (plus the help from others is amazing) and that probably carries over into the rest of their application
Congrats to everyone who has gotten in and if you didn't, don't give up!!!
