    I didn’t see a topic for MN started yet and I’m just too excited to wait any longer. Anyone else applying here this summer?

    I’m also a first time applicant. I’m terrified but also praying I only have to apply once

    If you email Violeta Bonneville or Karen Nelson, they can set you up with an official tour with one of the student ambassadors :)

    First time applicant and I'm applying! Does anyone have more information about the zoology course requirement? I read on the website that they usually take another semester of general biology to fulfill it

    Yes! I’d email Violeta Bonneville with a syllabus of the course you took just to be sure, but most schools with a biology course that covers all of the phylums and biodiversity will probably work. Mine was the 2nd class in our general biology series.

    Does anyone know if they accept online microbiology/lab for the course requirement? My school didn't offer it so online was my only option :(

    They likely will, I'd just email them and ask. They may want a course description or syllabus but they accepted all of the online courses I took (granted I took them through the U of MN so that probably helped, but my micro class was at a community college so...)

    Submitted my app the other day. I decided to only apply to UMN (I’m IS).. risky decision, but I’m feeling good about it. That’s either a good sign or a bad sign

    What are y'alls favorite aspects of the school? Pro's and con's?
    I'm an OOS applicant and am not able to visit, so I'm relying on their website, the AAVMC book of schools, Google images and other peoples experiences :)

    (Disclaimer that I am a first year in my second week of classes; we just had our first quiz today and our first exam is next week so I have some limits to my experiences)

    Pros: I love the community here- the teachers are really supportive and want you to succeed, upperclassmen (especially those involved with club outreach and orientation) are all approachable and willing to help you. We also talk a lot about mental health and have lots of support resources, so I feel really comfortable that I will be able to work through whatever may happen.
    We also have a metric ton of clubs for all kinds of interests, so there are lots of ways to get experience outside of class!

    Cons: we are tied by blood contract to the state fair, so we have a relatively late start compared to other schools (always the day after labor day). The state fair itself has lots of great opportunities, but traffic around it is a nightmare (including during orientation week). Beyond that I haven't been here long enough to have too many cons. I'm really having a good time overall!

    My only cons are vet school in general related debt and so much freakin work ugh...
    But that's literally all I have for cons! I love UMN :biglove:
    I am also OOS so if you have specific questions related to that feel free to hit me up!

    Do they have any emphasis for public health? Aside from any dual degree seeking programs.

    We have a big DVM/MPH program here - some of the other schools actually partner with UMN for it, or used to. If that's not your jam, we also have a required public health rotation on clinics and have it as a course during second year.

    Thanks for the info! I will be completing my MPH this Fall, that's why I'm not really interested in the duel degree programs.

    Got the confirmation email today. I knew it was coming soon and am very aware that we aren't getting any actual updates until December/January but I still almost barfed when I saw who the email was from. It's going to be a long few months :nailbiting:
