    Do you mind sharing your stats?

    Sure. This is what UF calculated my stats as:
    Overall gpa: 3.70
    Science gpa: 3.53
    Last 45: 3.65
    Gre verbal: 51%
    Gre quant: 55%
    For gpa they said I was at or above the averages of the past 3 years class. My gre is obviously lower. Their suggestions for me were to diversify my experience (I had only Small animal before), they didn't like my essays, and they told me to get a veterinary mentor. I guess the vet that wrote my letter didn't make it sound like she's known me for as long as she has :/

      Oh no! Hopefully this year we can both get in. Did UF calculate your grade based on VMCAS or other software?

        I think it was different because I just looked back at my application I saved from last year and they calculated my gpa lower than UF did, but I also reported my overall gpa as lower. My gpa is now higher since getting my degree.

          I calculated my grades from VMCAS. And I'm kind of upset my overall GPA is lower than anticipated, especially since I retook some classes.

            Did they recommend retaking the GRE? I have the same scores as you. I know they put a lot of weight on the GRE compared to other universities... :(

              Does anyone know what the academic cutoffs for folder review are? I am a grad student at UF but will still be in the out of state pool :(. My undergrad GPA is horrible but my grad GPA is around a 3.6.

                I found this on their website. Hope it helps!
                "The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine (UFCVM) does not have a set minimum academic requirement in order to be admitted. However, Science, Last 45 and Overall GPAs in addition to GRE scores will be used in evaluating the academic ranking of applicants. Candidates are ranked in two independent applicant pools: Sponsored (Florida residents) and Non-Sponsored (Out of state)."

                  Thank you for the update!

                  If you hear anything through the grapevine please let us know!
                  Anxiously waiting for any email!
                  I heard from someone with a close relation to admissions that they would not be doing early interviews this year, and that interviews will take place during three weekends in January and we would be notified sometime in December!

                    Ahh! Thank you! I wasn't sure if we'd hear back in November or December. I wonder why they didn't hold early interviews this year? Shortage of time maybe?

                      Hello fellow anxious (potentially future classmates) SDN'ers!

                      This morning I received a text from my friend who is a first year vet student at UF confirming there will be no early interviews and they had more applicants than normal which is why the process may be a bit slower.

                      Best of luck to everyone and hoping y'all are staying sane with this wait!

                            So I just had a mild heart attack this morning (not really but felt like it)... I checked to see about my supplemental application and the website we submitted them on showed I didn't submit anything. I went back into my bank statements and found my payment and confirmation number, etc.. Long story short there was an internal issue for my application, so I would double check to make sure everything is in. Just wanted to give you guys some advice!
