Hey guys! I was going through my email and realized that I haven’t received anything from Tennessee. Not even an update email. I just wanted to check in that this was normal and there wasn’t an issue with my email, because this happened to a friend of mine last cycle. Thanks!!

I don’t think I’ve received anything either, but I have in my little notes that I’m not expecting to hear anything until January (I probably got that from the site) so don’t panic yet:)

OOS rejection :( Colorado and Tennessee both sent their decisions today and I was rejected from both. Too much for one day lol. These last two schools were my last hope this cycle.

I’m so sorry, I know how tough this can be. Don’t stop trying!! This year is even more competitive than the last few unfortunately.

OOS Rejected. A little disheartened by the self led file review that says GPA wasn’t the deciding factor. My GPA is the weakest part of my application, but I have strong LORS, experience, and the works. I guess we will see in formal file review. Essays perhaps?

Where do you see that? A portal? Or do they say that all in an email?

I still haven’t heard anything! Idk of that’s a good thing or bad thing! Anyone else in the dark?!
Me! I’m still hoping no news is good news. I think they put out a deadline that all invites would be sent by the 8th.

I called yesterday and spoke with Deborah Shepherd, who's the admissions coordinator since I hadn't heard anything from them about my application. They've already sent out interviews to the 250 people they selected. Out of those 250, some will have already accepted to other schools and reject an interview offer. Anybody on the ranked list after those 250 people will be offered interviews. By the end of next week, you should know if you've been offered an interview or simply denied. I was told I was in the top 400 applicants out of the 1300 total (near the end of that 400 list) and told it was highly unlikely for me to get offered an interview this cycle. Hope this helps any of you.

Thanks for this info! I'll stop stressing now and chalk this up to a rejection lol

Does anyone know if UT does tracking? Like you have to pick if you want to do SA, LA, equine or exotics.

No tracking. You do have various opportunities for electives during didactic and clinical years, but everyone takes the same core classes and rotations.
The full curriculum is available here

Overall, the interviewers at UTCVM make you feel comfortable and the interview felt very conversational. Make sure to prepare for behavior type questions(how you overcame difficult situations, what you learned, etc.). Also, be prepared to speak on hot topics in veterinary medicine and your motivation to become a veterinarian. Good luck!!
