    Hi I'm starting this thread because for some reason no one made one for this awesome veterinary school.

    Feel free to ask me questions! I came into the school without knowing much about the atmosphere or curriculum so I was very unsure, but I love it here so far!

    I actually am really hoping I get the chance to go to one of the midwest schools. They are very nice and it seems the large animal programs are great. I also like the areas. A few of my professors are UW alum and have said great things.

    I just sent in my GRE. It's the only really harmful part of my app. I have a high verbal but my quant is boderline 148. My writing is high though. I did put everything in my main explanation statement however about why my quant is lower.

    I think a lot of the schools got a little behind due to the storms.

    So I'm a little confused...is everyone who applied to UW going to get the supplemental app emailed to them? Or is it just the candidates who they want to move forward with that get it?

    Got an email today asking me to send them not my last GRE scores but the ones before that, which I did not know they needed. They also mentioned that the supplemental would be sent around late November.

    Hi all, OOS applicant! Wishing everyone the best of luck.

    I only sent them my most recent one as well since I outscored on the test I delivered, and my other test was from 2015 from getting my MPH (I am non-traditional). I responded and let them know (especially since it's extra $ to send old scores!)

    I reviewed mine at 4:35pm EST and my last name starts with R. Is it that everyone that submitted a VMCAS application received a supplemental?

    I think I read somewhere (either from an email of theirs or from their website) that unless you are incredibly deficient (like lacking too many prerequisite courses or something of that nature), which would make you automatically disqualified, everyone is supposed to get one.

    So does anybody else not remember being asked about first and second career choices on the VMCAS application? (I’m referring to the Diversity Section of the supplemental app) I reviewed my downloaded VMCAS app and do not see that anywhere on it.

    I remember putting it down somewhere on there, but you could also try calling VMCAS customer service and they may be able to help you out. We also still have a bit until the supplemental is due, so you have some time to figure this out. It'll be okay!

    How important do you think it is to make sure your second choice is the same as what you listed on VMCAS? I know my first choice for sure obviously, but I can't remember what I made my second choice...

    This might be a dumb question but for the additional experience (not related to vet/animal experience) can we write about continuing experience? I don't know if the "Note: If you are continuing your experience at a clinic or place of employment, please update the number of hours and any additional duties acquired." pertains to the other types of experiences or just to the animal related question. Thanks!
