    I like to think so! I know the school has rolling acceptance so it tells me I’m not an ideal applicant if someone that applied after me got contacted first! But this is not news to me. My gpa and gre are average. The only thing I have going for me are my experiences.
    Hold tight! There is so much longer to go lol. I’m OOS, you?

    There’s not really a difference between IS and OOS for midwestern since it’s a private school and not state funded, so they don’t prioritize people from Arizona over people from any other state.

    Oh I know. I applied to Midwestern last cycle and I was OOS then but now I'm IS. I was just wondering as like a general concept if they were viewing people OOS first or vice versa. But since @JiuJitsuGirl95 is OOS and I am IS, it seems like it really is a toss up to which apps they are looking at first. Especially since we both submitted in Early September.

    Yeah but still. They have no concept of IS vs OOS since they’re private. Everyone is considered OOS and is in the same pool. That’s what I was referring to.:)

    Absolutely! I was really impressed with the school and the faculty when I interviewed - like you I'll see how the other schools pan out since it's so early in the process but they are high on my list for sure!

    Sure! My stuff isn't too impressive but it's my third time applying lol so I've fixed a few things! I've also gotten a bachelors in biology and a masters in biomedical sciences. I've also gotten more research experience and animal experience.

    Last 45: 3.81
    Cumulative science: 3.52
    Cumulative: 3.61 (I think)
    GRE combined score: 310

    This happened with some of us last cycle too! Just reach out, make sure they have everything on file; they will add everything in and adjust your portal as time gets closer.
    Congrats to everyone who've been accepted thus far!

    For those of you that got interview waitlisted, do you mind sharing your stats? I’m curious about how Midwestern categorizes people. I still haven’t heard anything back from them either way

    Yes they all say expected. One school I will be graduating from this spring but the other I haven’t attended since last year. Idk maybe they just want a super recent one in case you have taken any classes since applying? I’ll probably just have mine resent after I graduate. I’ll probably call to see if there is any deadline for sending though.

    You guys have a ton of hours! Would you consider yourself untraditional students?
    And Junie, don’t stress too hard. I hear Midwestern takes a lot of people off of both their interview and after interview waitlist.

    yes pretty non-traditional I guess lol I took two years off after I got my AA and just decided to go back last year to finish pre-reqs. I also brought my GPA up from a 2.77 from Spring 2017 until now

    Nahhh not really... I just had to work 2 jobs (both at clinics) to pay for tuition in undergrad, that’s why my hours are insane lol I just took longer than most to graduate cuz I had to go part time/skip quarters to save up... so I dont necessarily feel like I’m non traditional to be honest...
    Haha hopefully! I’m just trying not to go nuts about it at this point :laugh: thanks for giving me hope and staying positive!

    When you interviewed last year, did they give you a list of possible interview questions? My coworker applied last year and mentioned something about that, but I'm not sure if she just got it off the internet. Also this is my first time using this forum so sorry if I'm doing it wrong.

    I see! Well I’m sure the colleges will like your dedication. Especially since working as a tech isn’t the best way to make money lol. I used to work in a restaurant where I made like $20-25/hr. When I first came to the vet field I made $10/hr. I just had to tell myself what I lacked in pay I gained in experience! It was tough because I also had to pay my way through school. I was lucky I had some scholarships and financial aid though.
    But do stay positive! I’d say you’re in a better position than me. I still haven’t heard anything either way. Only email I got was acknowledgment of receiving my application.

    Are we supposed to get an email and a message in our portal if they are reviewing our application? Or is it just when they invite you to interview? It’s my first time applying to Midwestern and second application cycle.

    No, there was no list of possible interview questions. I did look back through old forum posts to get an idea of what questions they asked. There were questions about when I have faced adversity/hardships and questions about who I am and my goals and experiences. They are really laid back and just want to get to know you. It only lasted 10 minutes for me and I came out feeling a lot more relaxed than I went in.

    I was wait-listed last year in Nov. never got in :( I just applied again this year, got the wait-list email last night. I'm hoping this year will be the year. Do you personally know anyone who was taken off the waitlist and offered an interview? *Hopeful*

    Awe, I’m sorry to heard you’ve been waitlisted officially. I still haven’t heard back either way so I think I may be in worse position than you lol.
    I don’t know anyone personally from Midwestern that has been pulled off the waitlist, but I also don’t have a whole lot of pre-vet friends. I have just heard that many people get pulled off because Midwestern is a private school and expensive so a lot of people decline once they get accepted elsewhere.
    I do know someone that got pulled off of Western’s waitlist this past August 2 weeks before school started! I think the waitlist situation may be similar since they are both private schools.
