GPA: cumulative 3.88, don’t know science and last 45 off the top of my head but they were above 3.8 too.
I had a 3.93 undergrad, and am currently finishing my Masters with a 3.95. I had about 1000 direct hours of veterinary experience, and a few hundred more of animal experience. I didn’t have incredibly diverse veterinary experiences so it was good to see that it wasn’t an issue with Tufts.
Cumulative GPA: 3.87, Science GPA: 3.82, Last 45 GPA: 3.92, 1000 vet hours (SA clinic & LA study abroad program ), 170 animal hours (shelters, stables, farms), & 500 research hours! I graduated with a degree in biology and was really involved in nonveterinary extracurriculars and clubs.
That guess is based on previous threads and comments from other students who received interviews at that time--the APVMA fb group has a few students who mentioned getting an invite NYE.Do we know that the next wave will be sent between Christmas and New Years or are we all just guessing?
Does Tufts currently require a specific computer for students? Can a tablet be used instead?
Do you know a lot of people that use iPads/Apple Pencils to take notes directly on PowerPoint slides? I've heard that that is common?There's no specific computer requirement, but we take exams on ExamSoft/Examplify, which has its own software requirements in order to download and run it. You can always rent a laptop from the school to take the exams on if you need.
I personally use a tablet for lectures/notes and have a cheap laptop that I use for exams and other school related things.
I know a few people who do. Personally, I don’t except for Anatomy lectures because of the visual aspects of the course. It’s whatever you prefer and can be class dependent - ie writing handwritten notes for one class but typing for another. In general, I type a lot faster than I can write. Vet school studying is a lot of trial and error.
I have a regular iPad (not a Pro or Air) with the Apple Pencil and Notability as well. Also echoing Wondering and Dinashadow - I just finished my first semester and it took me basically that whole time to figure out what worked best for me. So definitely don't feel discouraged if you try a few things and they still aren't working! I think I went through like four or five different study methods. Also important to say studying can vary based on class - I do anatomy studying a little differently than physio.
yes but on the upside, you can send the FAFSA stuff to everywhere you've applied all at once...next batch in theory should go out this week since last year they went out NYE.This financial aid application from Tuft's due in Feb is hefty, especially since I haven't even gotten an interview offer yet
Thank you for this update, greatly appreciated!i emailed patty with a question about sending transcripts and she said that the next round of interview invites, places on the waitlist to interview, and denial notices “will begin going out over the course of the next 2-3 weeks.”
that's the most painful thing I've heard this week so far lol siiighi emailed patty with a question about sending transcripts and she said that the next round of interview invites, places on the waitlist to interview, and denial notices “will begin going out over the course of the next 2-3 weeks.”
literally exactly what she told me tooi emailed patty with a question about sending transcripts and she said that the next round of interview invites, places on the waitlist to interview, and denial notices “will begin going out over the course of the next 2-3 weeks.”
Same girl, same. It's funny that you mention the Ross emails because I also didn't apply and have been getting them hahaHaven't gotten anything yet - I'm panic stricken. Literally spent the last 24 hours on this forum to hear some scrap of news... Its already the 10th for crying out loud. I get emails from ROSS on a daily basis just promoting their program and I didn't even apply there! They're the only school that has it together I feel like.
I also checked the portal- nothing. I did read somewhere on this forum that they are doing the 2nd wave of interview invites coming up very soon - Keeping my fingers crossed. If anyone is like me who is still waiting to hear SOMETHING please let me know! Good luck everyone!
