are there any international students that were accepted and unsure of whether or not to go to RVC? I am worried about COVID and everything.

Yeah these are conditions to take specific courses and receive specific grades. Thanks though!
I got conditional offer also similar to yours, I want to go to RVC but I emailed them saying it was physically impossible for me to meet these conditions in the time frame they provided. Who knows?

It's so strange that they gave conditional offers like this. I know that's standard in the UK for people coming straight from high school, but I've never heard of it for international students applying from college. I could technically meet the conditions of my offer, but I'm just not willing to stake going to vet school on my grades like they need me to, and I have some other choices I love. Hope you hear good news from RVC about relaxing your offer.

I completely understand where you are coming from, I unfortunately do not have other offers to choose from. I will let you know what RVC says I'm hoping that since they did offer admission, they would amend their offer slightly to something I can actually achieve. Like I was excited about getting accepted for all of 3 seconds.....basically until I saw the conditions of admissions

do y'all think no email today means rejection? I wish schools just sent all decisions out at the same time :/ .

No, the 4 year applicants received offers over several days, it's safe to assume the same will hold true for 5 year applicants

Adding to what nccope said, I saw 4'year applicants getting acceptances over a couple of days, the last comment being on a Friday, so look out for an email tomorrow 👀

I wish I could express how it feels to get accepted to vet school and within 2 seconds be crushed because you realize that unless you're Hermione Granger, it is physically impossible for you to meet their Conditions for admission.

I’m so sorry! Did they say if they’re willing to adjust your offer? Doesn’t seem fair if it’s literally impossible.

They are so busy they replied this morning, after like a week. Basically they questioned me asking why I couldn't meet them on time so I tried to explain the circumstances. And I guess I'll have to wait another week to update, unless I call. 🤷‍♂️

It's one of those cases where my VMCAS says one thing but then COVID happened and I don't think I'm even taking of the classes right now that my VMCAS says

I am so sorry - I know it doesn't help at all to say this but at least you WERE accepted. That's a huge achievement in and of itself. If they don't bend on these impossible conditions it would be so awful but it would have nothing to do with you and you'll know you were at least good enough to get in somewhere that you'll be more confident going into the next cycle of admissions??
The thing is you are good enough, it's just literally a crap shoot, like if almost 4000 people didn't apply to CSU I probably would have gotten accepted there. Like it doesn't reflect you as a person though

Also today is officially the end of "early February" so I am actually annoyed that I don't know anything yet!! But also I have an acceptance somewhere else I'm just whining on this thread because I am impatient and hate waiting for this whole admissions process to be over
See I've been rejected from every other school I applied to sooooo 🤣

Has anyone gotten any more info about the offer holder’s day? I know it’s supposed to be the 17th, but I just realized that’s less than a week away now and I haven’t gotten more information on timing/agenda!

Do you know where I should go to register? My acceptance email said that they would send more information on how to register, but I haven't received an email about that either 😔 I have so many questions as well! Researching everything to do with getting a visa and preparing to move internationally is making my head spin lol

You should have gotten an email with the title "RVC Q&A session link and Virtual Offer Holder Day" with the link to sign up. You need your RVC Student Number (the one in your offer email) to register. If you can't find it, I can send you a DM with the link I received, I just don't think I should paste it here

I can’t seem to find that in my email, so it would be great if you can DM me with the link! Thank you!!

is it fair to say at this point no news is probably bad news considering offer holder day is coming up so soon?

I'm trying really hard not to think so but I have to say it is starting to look like that.... I still want to be positive and see what happens on Monday but the odds are getting lower and lower now...

If you look at last years thread they were giving out acceptances for a while (I think some even in March). The also had an offer holder day in April so they probably have more than one event.

On the email I received about offer holder day, they mentioned that they plan on having more than one in case the timing for the one coming soon isn’t convenient so hopefully that means acceptances are still going out as well! I think that they go by batches and send out acceptances and rejections as they go along.

Accepted into the 4-year program! I'm so excited to be attending RVC

I'm a bit new to this forum, but I wanted to get the ball rolling on me moving across the world (I'm from Canada). I'm looking in bringing my cat over which complicates things further - anyone have further insight into accommodations. Anyone looking for a roommate to get a flat?

Let me know!

Hi everyone! I'm a new user and not from the US but an international applicant. I applied to the RVC 4-year and 5-year because it's the only school that I know of that even has an international scholarship. I got accepted to the 4-year but with the pound going up and I don't have the best grades nor heaps of work experience that I know many US applicants have, so I doubt I will even be in the running for it.

I still have till July to fulfill my conditional offer (get a few more hours of work experience) and time to think about whether it's worth paying the deposit. I was hoping that Brexit was going to devalue the pound and it would be a great time to study in the UK. I'm also interviewing for Bristol and if I get accepted I'm leaning towards them as tuition is around 4000 pounds cheaper than RVC + living expenses.
