Good luck to all! I didn't do vet school here but am a resident/Ph.D. student at Mizzou and can help with questions regarding the area, teaching hospital and other miscellaneous things that don't involve the curriculum or admissions. ;)

And to pair with the above, if you want a students perspective and/or have questions regarding curriculum, admissions, or any other pertinent questions, feel free to ask here or shoot me a pm.

When I applied 2 years ago they emailed me when I was offered an interview and then again with my acceptance. If I remember right the email just links to the portal when you get interview offers etc. Otherwise you wont hear from them until then.

To add onto this, I'll caution any ISers reading the thread that you will not hear anything until February at the earliest, as mid-February to mid-March is when IS interviews are held. It's a couple months behind the OOS timeline.

Oh, that's interesting, so they do the IS cycle after the OOS? I had assumed they would fill IS seats first & then give whatever OOS spots are leftover in case they fill more IS seats than anticipated.

It is 60 spots allocated for each, so it’s not a matter of leftover seats. The reason they do it one after another rather than concurrently is simply due to the amount of staff we have dedicated to admissions (which while absolutely amazing and super efficient/effective, is still a small number of people).

Yep, they always do IS several months after OOS. I think when I applied this was the general timeline:

-OOS interview invites end of November
-OOS interviews first ~2 weeks of January
-OOS acceptances first of February
-IS interview invites mid feb/march
-IS interviews March
-IS acceptances late March/ early April

Anyone know how many people they interview for OOS? I feel like it must be a decent amount considering they have 5 OOS interview dates

I'm not sure how many they interview OOS, but keep in mind group sizes. There were only 18 of us at my Midwestern interview.

It has been wayyyy long ago so please take this only as a broad estimation but the year I applied there was ~250 interview invites sent for OOS. and there were ~200 OOS interviews. They then tend to accept ~120 or so OOS people right off the bat, and that is not considering people they take off of the waitlist later on.

Starting to think maybe we'll hear next Monday? In past years they sent out OOS invites the third Monday of the month, but that also happened to be the Monday before Thanksgiving which is next week this year.

Hmm, I noticed that as well. I am trying not to focus too much on invites until the end of November, but it is really stressful lol!

At least we have this space to let each other know if there are news or not!
As long as we all don't hear anything, it's a good sign?
