You have an acceptance already so be more confident. That said there are no guarantees and you should remain patient but prepare for anything including a move. Its not the end of the world.. I applied to schools this cycle i got waitlisted at Cornell, and accepted at Liu but my dream school is tufts. Its my in state school and also has a great speciality in exotics. I am also scared to move and would much rather stay at home. I have seen other people get interviews allready but I havent heard back allready and im getting scared. So I wanted to see if I could get feedback and maybe figure out what's up with my application.
I speak two languages
Undergraduate degree : Biomedical engineering bachelors in science. Honors: cume laude, and tau alpha pi engineering honors society
Deans list every semester .
My school had a messed up GPA system where a 92 was still a b... so I suffered a bit there , like I would have had a higher GPA in other schools standards. Graduated with a 3.73 GPA
Did some post bacc prerequisite courses with a GPA of 3.9 (3 courses ) i still need atleast one more.
Overall combined GPA of the two universities is 3.75
Experience at time of application:
Animal experience at pet store (caring for animals ) current job 525 hours(although I now realize I forgot to include the hours from 2014 as well 🤦♀️)
Animal experience large non vet: therapeutic horse riding center for disabled people -900 hours
Intern Research at veterinsry school (not in the usa- in home country ) - 680 one year 520 other year. Total 1200 hours
Exotic and wildlife intern: 700 hours
Shadowing: 48 hours ( probably more but I didnt keep track well and was planning to do more but then covid hit the country so I couldn't)
I realized I completely undervalued my hours since I was scared that the apps people would call and verify and no one really kept track and id get in trouble. So I valued everything at lower than what it really should be.
I didnt add anything none animal related because i didnt think it was important? I also didn't include anything older than past 6 years because I thought that would be a little extreme. I have done research in the biomedical field , completed projects and developed products, had jobs /extracurricular activities , clubs whatever etc. Own pets, watched them Blabla but I didnt include any of that because I figured schools whould just go " ok how's that important to us " Maybe I was wrong on this part. So feedback on this would be nice as well.
Please let me know if I missed anything.
