    Congrats all! Did your email come from someone specific or was it an general admissions email?

    I got my call on Tuesday around 3:30pm, and my email from general admissions around midnight the same day.

    I don't know if OSU has an interview wait-list but I just cancelled my interview for next Saturday, hopefully they'll choose to give someone else a chance and fill my spot! Good luck all

    I am with you! I'm IS, interviewed Jan. 4th and am waiting (sort of patiently) and saw a few IS & OOS phone call acceptances but then this thread went quiet. OSU's last interview date is this Saturday so after that - maybe the acceptances will start coming (or maybe some tomorrow). I swear this entire process tests our resiliency. As if we haven't already proven our toughness by getting to this point when so many others give up because it's too hard. Know that I stand with you waiting anxiously for that ever-so important, life-changing thumbs up. Think positively, stay strong and keep hoping!

    I noticed that! A very small amount of people got acceptances and then everything has been radio silence ever since. I agree with you so much!! I also am IS and interviewed on the 4th. What time was your interview? Maybe we met! Mine was at 9:45.

    From their presentation at interviews, there's that tiny fraction that get acceptances (or rejections) right away, but most people have to wait a few weeks to 1.5 months to hear. It sucks, but I'm just keeping busy getting more experience for next cycle just in case. Makes me feel like I'm being productive and taking action so I won't feel so bad if I don't get in. Highly recommend it, it's helping me for sure!

    I remembered hearing that. I was just kind of hoping it’d be sooner even though I knew it wouldn’t be haha. I’m still in school and working so it’s keeping me busy but it’s still just always in the back of my mind!

    I had to call the admissions office yesterday with a different question, but I couldn't help myself and asked about their timeline for decisions (also dying in anticipation over here, interviewed on 1/5). They said that the mid- to late-Feb timeline is still accurate. They're waiting until after the final round of interviews to go through and score everything out from all the dates!

    Does anyone know if sending fall transcripts will affect decisions at all? I know they said we didn’t need to send them yet, but if it boosted our GPA, would they consider that?

    I know if seems like an impossible wait, but in no time at all you’ll get that magical email in your inbox and be on the other side!

    It’s true. I remember checking my email after work one day and there it was. I think I sat there for ten minutes staring at the email because I was in shock. The rest has been a complete and total blur! Lol. So enjoy this time before school starts because it’s a whirlwind.

    I wish I could make myself wait to check my emails until after work I check it incessantly. Like every 5 minutes. It’s fine, I’m fine

    Good Luck to all who are interviewing tomorrow! Soak it all in - OSU's facilities are AMAZING! It has been my dream since about age 10 that I would attend THEE Ohio State for Vet School. In fact, EVERY time I was in Columbus for Youth Show, State Fair, and QH Congress I stopped by the Vet School and put my hand on the sign that reads: Veterinary Medicine Academic Building and said, "I will." Yes, I prayed to the Veterinary gods and asked for guidance and the fortitude to one day apply and get accepted and then took a picture with the Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center behind me. All I want to complete my 11 years of pictures is one last one - same spot - in a white coat:)

    Now there’s a fancy new sign that actually says “The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.” 10/10 recommend it as a picture spot:)

    So I had to call OSU about a completely different matter, but out of curiosity I asked if the timeline for acceptances still stands and she said that the earliest acceptances will be sent out February 1st (screaming because that’s this week) and that they’ll go out through March 1st!! Hope this helps!

    You know, I forgot to ask about that but I thought about it right after I hung up. I would assume so though
    Edit: i read that wrong. I’m assuming rejections will go out throughout February too

    Financial aid question.

    Background story:
    OSU requires parental information on the FAFSA. My parents live in another country and pay taxes there. I have not lived at home or received financial help from my parents for the past 10 years. OSU still wants me to convert my parents wages and taxes to US dollars which I think is strange since the system is so different in my home country and really not comparable at all. At Tufts they let me and my parents sign an affidavit saying they haven't been helping me for the past 5 years.

    Question:
    Anyone who is doing this as a second career or someone who is just 30 or 40 years old, or a foreigner-yet-US-citizen like me who has been in a similar situation? Is there anything to be done to avoid this mess?

    From what I remember, you only needed to provide your parent's information if you wanted to be elegible for the Health Professions loan (which not all get). Otherwise, because you are considered independent due to this being a graduate/professional degree, you don't need your parent's info

    Obviously this might have changed, so always good to double check

    What are the actual odds of getting that loan? My family isn't low income, but I've been on my own for a while now.

    That info is still true.

    How many students get it is dependent on student need and available funding for that year. Also, this loan will eventually be handled by a different loan servicer than your other federal loans.

    My family is very much lower middle class, and while I got the HPSL my first two years, I didn’t get it this year. And my parents’ income had actually gone down. I had gotten it after being on my own for 6 years too. Basically I have no idea the actual odds, but I’ve never heard of anyone getting it with fairly well off parents.

    So I just got an email from OSU’s optometry school just now with the subject line “in-vision your future at Ohio state” and almost started screaming thinking it was from the vet school how rude to mess with my emotions like this

    For those that have heard, did y'all get an email about setting up your buckeyemail account? If so, did it allow you to do it? The link I keep going to tells me that it's unavailable. Maybe because I'm still getting emails forwarded to my regular email?

    Well apparently I just did something wrong earlier. Because it let me log right in this time. Weird. Thanks for the help though! Looking forward to meeting you in August!

    A few weeks after I interviewed, I ended up in the ER at the vet school with my cat. A couple days later one of the students called me to check on her. 614 area code and all. It stressed me out at the time, but now it’s funny lol
