Anyone applying to Tennessee this cycle (2020) for matriculation next year (2021) and graduation in 4 (2025)
They are NOT requiring GRE this cycle (and this cycle only)! Also, grades of S or Cr are accepted for spring and summer 2020 classesHi! I have tried calling and emailing the admissions office with no reply.. Would you happen to know if they are requiring GRE scores this cycle? There is some contradictory information on their page. Thank you!
Thank you! There isn't too much about interviews online. Are interviews more behavioral style? Who is typically conducting interviews? Is the interview closed file?Hello! UTCVM c/o 2024 student here. I suggest that you prepare heavily. Pick a few stories that you've tested on others that captivate you, the way you handle stress, understand life and what motivates you. Structure your stories so that they can be succinct, but also broad enough to be used on a couple different kinds of questions. Obviously, you can't prepare for everything they ask you, and don't memorize word for word your stories (vet schools don't like robotic sounding interviewees). Try to relax ahead of time. Practice with a veterinarian. Practice with the mirror, or videotape yourself so you can recognize fidgeting habits and analyze your performance.
Recognize that an interview is what can both get you in and keep you out of veterinary school. It's 1/3 your application.
Hope this helps!
Are they only sending this to IS students this early? I applied OOS 1st time applicant to UTCVM, 2nd time overallFirst time posting to this thread. I received an IS interview invite postmarked 12:35pm central time today via email!!!!! I am shocked because I wasn't expecting to hear back so soon
They usually do IS interviews very early (Oct) and OOS interviews further out (Jan/Feb).As far as I know, they have only sent IS interview invites.
Thank you!They usually do IS interviews very early (Oct) and OOS interviews further out (Jan/Feb).
Interviews last year (and to my knowledge, in previous years), were done by 3 people... typically a faculty member, a 3rd or 4th yr student and a community veterinarian. I believe they have your essays in front of them, but nothing else like grades or experiences. Interviews are usually pretty relaxed. Very basic, get to know you questions. UT wanted to switch to MMI style last year, but that fell through, and then with the pandemic this year... I'm assuming that wont be put in place for a while.
it seems really early so i wonder if these are all early admission or something?
I just keep telling myself that if I haven’t received an outright rejection, I shouldn’t lose hope!I also haven't heard anything, OOS 1st time. I thought we weren't supposed to hear back until December? That's what I wrote in my planner
If they told you December, I definitely wouldn't start worrying about it until mid-December at the earliest. Best to assume things will be later than planned with our small admissions staffHave any IS applicants heard when decisions will go out? Last I heard was December, but wondering if anyone has updated information. Im getting anxious!
I’ve been hearing a lot of people say there’s more applicants than usual this year. I figured there would be less due to covid?
