    I changed the thread name to news from anywhere (as opposed to just CSU :)). I got a "we received your completed app..." email from Tufts today.

    Let the waiting continue...

    I get emails from UGA all the time, and Auburn has been good about making sure I know when they have received transcripts, test scores etc. Tennessee has not notified me that they have received anything.

    Unfortunately I won't hear anything "official" from UT or Auburn until Jan-Feb when they send out interview invites.... I won't hear anything from UGA until March since they don't interview.

    March is too far away!!!!!!!!

    Here goes.

    I was rejected by Penn today.

    I guess as an out-of-stater with a cum. GPA of 3.5, sci. GPA of 3.2; and GRE scores of 610 (v), 560 (q), and 5.5 (w)...they are not interested.

    All I can say is "thank you Penn" for letting me know now instead of later. I am ESPECIALLY relieved to know that I will NOT have to pay over 30 grand for the education you offer!

    Your loss, Penn. ;)

    Good luck to all and may we all be granted an acceptance this year! :luck:

    Good luck all!

    How did Penn let you know?

    I recently got a postcard from Penn asking me for some further information... not sure what that means exactly.

    Sorry. Here's some additional info.

    1. Where else did I apply?

    Illinois, Tufts, Minnesota, LSU, Virgina Tech (VMRCVM), Ross, and St. George

    2. How Did Penn let me know?

    A lovely letter, sent via snail mail. I don't remember what the letterhead looked like since it is lining the birdcage at this moment. :D

    Thanks for your condolences! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of us.

    It means, "we don't have a supplementary application; and we are too busy to calculate your last 45 hour GPA, etc...why don't you do it?'

    I would NOT recommend answering the "Penn alumnus" questions with the following answer:

    No, there is no one in my family/no veterinarian that I know who is a Penn alumnus. I'd be happy to rent one if it would increase my chance of admission, though. :rolleyes:

    Must not become bitter, must not become bitter....

    I received an e-mail Nov 3rd saying my app was complete at Western. Minnesota also sent out an update Nov 4th. Auburn has been good about keeping applicants informed on what they have/have not received. I haven't heard anything from UIUC or KSU yet. I am interviewing at OSU next week. Good luck to everyone!

    Hmmmm.

    Most of the schools I applied to won't be sending out interview invites until late December-early January...

    Somebody please explain why the heck vet school application cycles take so frickin' long to complete???? Jeez...med/dent/pod/pharm applicants have already been interviewing and the process is JUST BEGINNING for vet applicants!!!! :thumbdown:

    Rant over, thanks for listening.

    Congrats, eightannelay on your OSU interview! Good luck :luck:

    A dollar? Honey, I'm worth more than that!

    How much would you give me if I said I would "shag a ugly Penn alumnus if it would increase my chance of admisson?" ;)

    I heard from KSU about two weeks ago and I have an interview in January. Tennessee, WSU and Purdue have not acknowledged my application. Has anyone heard anything from these schools?

    It seems schools out west are *quicker* in beginning the interviewing process?

    Any thoughts on this?

    I applied to Cornell (in-state), Penn, Colorado, Michigan State, Virginia/Maryland, and RVC. Anyone else apply to Cornell, I feel like I'm the only one here who did.

    So far, everyone has notified me about receiving my application/transcript/other materials. Virginia/Maryland promptly rejected me, only took them about a month and a half! They did send a nice letter though.

    Wow, OSU must just do things incredibly early compared to most schools. I received my interview notice mid-November and to me that felt late considering many of my friends were interviewed in mid-October and already knew their status by end of October. I was accepted a week-and-a-half after my interview.

    The wait is over for me as I didn't apply anywhere else, but good luck to everyone!

    Yes, Ohio is my residence, so OSU is my state school. I guess I just didn't feel the need to apply elsewhere because the statistics for admittance are so much lower.

    My stats are 750 q, 580 v, (1330) and 5.0 writing (timed out on one of the essays mid-setence). I have a 3.81 overall GPA and a 3.96 prerequisite GPA (also last 45 quarter hour). I am 25, graduated from a small liberal arts college in Massachusetts in 2003 with a BA in sociology and fine arts. I had taken 0 science class unless you count a science for non-majors genetics course I took just to fulfill latin honors requirements. I did have quite a few extracurriculars including varsity diving for all four years of college and being captain for two years. I also had a lot of other leadership-type experiences like coaching diving lessons and working in a mentorship program for disadvantaged youth.

    After college, I took a year off to work full-time in a veterinary hospital to make sure vet med was the right choice for me. I started in the kennel and worked my way to treatment technician after about 4 months. That job was small animal and exotics. I stayed there a year and then in 2004 I moved back to ohio to finish my science prereqs. I also worked as a tech asst. in an emergency hospital that only saw cats and dogs. What else, I interned at a wildlife center and a sports equine hospital and volunteered in one of the labs that is part of the school of veterinary preventative med at OSU. Overall, in two years, I acquired about 2500 hours of experience while going to school. At one point I was working four of those jobs together and taking OChem and Biology. Granted all four together were only about 35 hours a week but it was still crazy rushing from one thing to another.

    So the moral of the story is, it is possible to get into vet school and not know you wanted to be a vet from the day you were 5. But it would have been much easier had I decided while I was still an undergraduate.

    Again, good luck to all!

    Congrats mystery pie!!! You will love OSU!! I have a friend that is a 3rd Year and she loves OSU.

    Aside from my experience, extracurriculars and research work my stats suck. Especially compared to yours! Just graduated with a 3.36 and a 3.61 science gpa. Last 45... 3.36. Consistent at least. My general GRE is an 1100 with a 5v. Biology GRE is 750 (for UGA... which is good, avg last year was about 600)

    I feel like if I get in this year it will be a miracle, but I have pretty much accepted the fact that I am probably applying again next year. Not to be all doom and gloom, but just being realistic here. It is tough to get in with great stats and most of mine are just average.

    One day right? :D

    Hi everyone. I'm (a post-bacc 32 year old former journalist) writing from New York City- have been reading these threads for the past few weeks and figured I'd post. Well... Davis has sent replies to out-of-staters. At least this one. Rejection. :thumbdown: Thin letter. Fun. I know, it's to be expected - I'm applying as an out-of-stater (although I was born and raised there through junior high). Still, the "We regret to inform you that you will not be a member of our incoming Fall 2006 class" bit smarts. Cornell is my top choice, and according to their admissions office, they're aiming to tell in-staters on Christmas. I know, sounds weird. But I have called about three times to verify that. The first week of January, definitely.
    Good luck to everyone- I really did not anticipate the anguish of this protracted waiting game.

    Exciting! Do you know how they will contact us by any chance? I have vacation for the next couple of weeks, so if they are only doing it by mail, then I'll be missing it! That would suck! Will they have it on the Cornell tracking page by any chance?

    A friend of mine goes to Cornell now. When she was accepted, they actually called her a few day before Christmas. She also went to Cornell for undergrad and applied to Vet School when she was a junior, so I dont know if all accepted students get a phone call.

    The admissions office says they'll call. I hope they call only with acceptances though :scared: I think it is also going to be on the tracking page too. This waiting is almost more than I can stomach.

    Hi everybody;

    I'm new here, I was just wondering if anyone knows how Penn, Iowa or Mississippi State will notify the applicants of whether they are rejected or got an interview (I know Iowa does not interview). I heard others say that Penn will let you know around this time whether or not you got an interview (a few of my friends were already rejected, sadly) but I am worried that they would send a letter letting me know either way to my college address, and I am at my home address now for the holidays. Thanks, all, for your insight, and good luck! :)

    I was accepted at the Royal School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh, Scotland yesterday. It is very far, and my husband won't be able to leave New York for my first year at least, so that is someowhat of a pyrrhic victory. However, it is AVMA accredited and the 4 year accelerated program for US students with bachelor's degrees and post-bacc pre-med coursework completed, so you essentially skip the 1st year of the standard 5-year program.

    Hey Nutellagirl,
    I too got the UCDavis rejection letter a couple of days ago. Congrats on Edinburgh! My fingers are still crossed for you for Cornell. Let us know when you hear.

    AbbeyRoad, I do know that Iowa State sends out acceptances pretty late (End of Jan-Mid Feb) and they let you know by standard mail. The other two I don't know about however.

    Congrats to those of you accepted and good luck to those waiting to hear. This is my third time going through the process, so I feel everyone's pain. The waiting sucks, especially when it ends in a rejection, but we all survive. :D

    Thank you!!!!!!! I actually called Cornell today and asked the (very patient) receptionist if not getting a call tomorrow essentially meant I was not accepted. She thankfully said no. STILL.....!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just got hosed by Virginia Tech too.
    I haven't heard a thing from Tennessee either.
    Ditto from Washington State until today when I got an email saying that I was missing like 7 pre-reqs :smuggrin: including Intro Bio and all my orgo classes. Where do they get this crud? All I am missing is stats - it's right there on my very expensive VMCAS application!

    I was wondering the same thing; so I called Penn this morning, and was told that interview letters are being sent to both college and permanent addresses. They have not scheduled all of February or March yet, they said, so don't be concerned if you do not get an invitation to interview this week or next week. They will be sending out the interview invitations 2-3 weeks in advance of the interview date, so technically we could have to wait as late as February to even hear from Penn...
