I talked pretty fast and used only 14min to finish answering all questions. :/
Don't know if its a good thing or a bad thing lol
Before my interview, I was told it may be shorter just dependent on how much you have to say versus how fast you talk. I wouldn’t worry at all!

If it makes you feel better, I talked so fast I think I answered everything after 10 minutes lol so try not to worry about the timing of it, I think they care much more about the quality of your answers

Does anyone know of a timeline on when they plan on releasing decisions? Or at least when they have in previous years?

Last year it was sent around the 14th. So hopefully either this week or next.

Rejected, which I'm really surprised about? I changed my classes so my GPA would be alot higher this time around and last year I got waitlisted with a way lower GPA. I have a feeling it might have something to do with Casper. 😩

The same thing happened to me. But I’m surprised how much the CASPer would’ve affected the points😓 had good hopes this year as my gpa was higher

I got waitlisted. Does anyone know how much the waitlist moved last year?
Hi, so from last year, we had one person accept their in-state offer after their acceptance to OVC and so they had one applicant come off of the waitlist and another deferred their admission to the following year due to COVID19. The waitlist has about ten people on it. The admissions administrators do not reveal what number you are on the waitlist. This is what I have heard from my year.

Accepted!! I was wondering if any current students could post a little about their experience at OVC?

Congrats on the acceptance! So, its kind of hard to talk about the experience as a 1st year since this year has been mostly online. We do have clinical medicine, anatomy, and pathology labs in person within our practice groups to minimize the risk of COVID19. Your experience will be much different than mine, since by Fall 2021, your class may have hybrid courses rather than having every class online like my year currently has (unless the pandemic worsens).

I'm sorry about that, it seems like this year there were more applicants. Was OVC the only Vet School you applied to? I have some friends who applied to Atlantic Veterinary College & Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM). I agree, I think the CASPer based interviews are not the best way to assess applicants, I prefer doing an MMI.

I agree, especially because I thought I did really well on the MMI last year. Plus I'm also a very slow typer, I cant express everything I want in such a short about of time online. But when I talk I go a mile a minute so that works in my favor for timed interviews lol. 😂

I applied to 8 schools total this year, but Guelph is the closest as I live in Buffalo. It's sad because I know its program is not the best fit for me and what I want to do, but I wanted to be close to home. 😭

So assuming I know the answer...rejected probably but I have been “on hold for decision” since December 21st 😂. OVC was my number 1 but I have 2 acceptances so I am going somewhere but just a little confused as to why it hasn’t been updated or I haven’t got refused admission email from them. I didn’t realize when applying that I still had 1 prerequisite left so they had me send updated transcripts 2 weeks ago but a little confused on that since it seems people already had interviews then. Sorry for the rant just very confused 😂

If I remember correctly, OVC doesn't consider you for admission until they have all pre-reqs. I think since they don't do Canadian students until later in spring/ early summer, there is still room for international students around this time.

Ok thanks. I just wasn’t sure about international since there’s only 15 international spots. Also wasn’t sure if my decision is delayed because I didn’t have prerequisites is there a chance I will hear before the April 15th deadline for other schools.
