I filled that out and submitted yesterday. I asked my friend who is currently a year 1 in the program, and he said we don't need to be as specific as we were on our original application on the portal. There isn't even an option to add more experiences, so I just put my last few jobs on there and left out a bunch of my other extra-curriculars. It's probably just there for a paper trail and official application to the school/program. I'm still waiting on my student ID so i can set up my email. Also, did anyone else notice that the intent to enroll form is still set at 2024? Did anybody fill it out or are we waiting for them to update?
See ya'll in the fall :))
They updated the intent to enroll form so I sent that in yesterday! And yeah, I added my last few experiences and called it a day 😅

I just need to know if I need to send my transcript or not since I graduated in 2018 and haven’t taken any more classes so VMCAS had my final transcript—

Actually, now that I reread that portion of the website I’m not completely sure 🙈🙈🙈 does anyone else have the answer to this? Do we need to submit all transcripts to them??
Hi first year here lol. If you’ve completed all your prerequisites and those transcripts were sent in with VMCAS then you don’t need to send anymore transcripts. They would have sent you an email letting you know if you where missing any classes. Last year I was taking a class but it wasn’t required for MSU specifically and they told me I didn’t have to even submit that because it wasn’t a prerequisite. Hope that helps!! Congrats everyone!!

IS waitlist #34. Not feeling super great. Anyone know if we/how we will get updates as the waitlist moves?
Not sure if they’ve changed it this year but last year you had to email them and they would reply with your # - and they said to wait until after April 15th to begin doing that. (maybe they let you call them as well?) Otherwise you won’t hear until they have an open seat offer for you. If you never get that far on the list you eventually get an email saying the class is full for the year.

I would assume it’s the same this year, but I don’t know.

Thank you I appreciate it!! Yes, they said to email after March 15 for our rank - just wasn't sure if they'd send any updates periodically!

MSU hasn’t made class Facebook pages in the past, so you should be fine. Congratulations!

Does anyone know when we’ll receive any more information from MSU as far as required supplies, rabies vaccine series, etc? I’d like to start accumulating things over the summer so I’m not so overloaded when classes are starting.

There will be a virtual summer orientation course when your D2L/NetID is set up that will tell you everything you need to get/do before your actual orientation begins in August. It typically opens up in May/June sometime.

I found the easiest way to get my rabies series and TB test was through MSU. I just called the Olin Health Center when school began and set up 3 appointments to get my shots. They usually don't require the series to be completed until the end of September. You will also be required to have an updated TDap, but you can just get that through your family doctor or after school begins if you're outdated.

Is anybody else still waiting on the MSU application to go through? I submitted my intent to enroll and deposit and now I’m just waiting on my admission to go through so I can get my student ID, etc. and check out financial aid options.

Have you checked through it all to make sure that you aren’t missing anything to prevent it from going through? Or make sure the payment was successful? When I try to log back into mine it says that I successfully submitted my application and I got an email receipt for the payment. I didn’t seem to have any problems.

Did you get your MSU application acceptance and student ID yet? I got an email that my application was being reviewed (I have my applicant ID) and receipts for my payments last week. Just wasn’t sure how quickly they processed those apps

Oh! Idk then! I actually haven’t even gotten an email that my app is being reviewed yet and I submitted it last Thursday. I did go there for undergrad so I already have a PID and MSU email so idk if that makes a difference 🤷🏻‍♀️

This was the last email I got from them about my application— 😬 and I had gotten one before that one when I started the app and it gave me an ID.

Just withdrew my application. I felt it was unlikely I would be offered admission at #82 on the waitlist, and I've already been accepted to Oregon which is cheaper. If the waitlist does move that far, I'd rather someone who needed the seat more get it!

How are accepted students finding places to live / people to live with? I didn't go to MSU for undergrad, so I don't know the area well and where most vet students live!

One option: Once you are accepted there is a CVM housing google doc floating around that you will get access to where people are looking for roommates, renting/selling their homes etc

I went to MSU for undergrad, absolutely stay away from Cedar Village, it’s apartments that are dirt cheap but are basically on campus and is typically where all the parties are, 10/10 not recommended for a grad student unless you have great noise cancelling headphones and don’t mind the occasionally couch burning in the street. Housing really close to campus is fairly expensive if you’re going to have any sort of amenities. My complex was super close to campus and we paid $580/ person plus utilities for a 2 bed/1 bath and we didn’t have free or in unit laundry, no dishwasher, everything was very out of date. If you’re looking for something that’s basically on campus and had the amenities, be prepared to pay $600-$800 minimum, probably around $1000 if you’re looking for a studio or 1 bedroom. Another thing that probably isn’t super weird but caught me off guard when I was looking is that the rent is listed per person for apartments so something listed for $800/month is usually $800/person so $1600/month for a 2 bedroom.

For accepted IS applicants who already attended MSU, did you submit a new application or follow the readmission procedure? Looking at the instructions for next steps after sending in your acceptance letter and $$ the next step is to submit your application. I'm thinking since we already have a student PID and email we may need to follow the readmission procedure?

I took the readmission as if you were requesting to be readmitted to the DVM program for some reason. I did the normal application and there is a place to put your PID if you attended there for undergrad. I already submitted mine but did have this question and a few others so I actually emailed them about it. When I get a response I’ll let you know.

Does anyone know if we’re going to be in person next fall for anything/their plans? I know they’re currently completely remote and I don’t want to get an apartment yet if we’re going to be completely virtual 😩

Adding onto futuresheltervet, recommend staying TF away from Berrytree and any DTN Management apartments for similar reasons+others. Awful experience this year.
Oooh this is good to know because I was looking at berrytree. Not accepted yet but I’ve been looking at east lansing and Columbus to try to plan as much as I can

Did anyone else get a link to a zoom for admissions office hours? I’m a little confused because I’m currently waitlisted and not officially accepted

I did! I am also waitlisted. I think they just want to make sure you have all your questions answered in the event that you get off the waitlist. For most of my waitlisted schools, I am still invited to their virtual visit days/info session

I’d be curious to know if they call or email as soon as seats open. I’m wondering also if it’s possible they’re waiting until March 15th to give an update and they‘ll send out a small wave and then do individuals after that...

I doubt people on the waitlist will hear anything until the reply deadline so I wouldn't stress yourself out worrying about it yet.
Thank you! I got rejected to my other schools so it's my last chance to go this year so I'm a little worked up.
