    Someone on the APVMA Facebook page called admissions and they told her “some time in the next 24 hours.”

    I'm really glad today is my day off from work so I have nothing better to do than stare at my computer and phone waiting...

    It gives them a bit of wiggle room, I guess, in case they don’t get the emails out today.

    If anybody wants a holiday-themed distraction, may I offer a shameless plug of my last album?

    Make sure to check your spam! The previous emails from VM went straight to my inbox but this one weirdly went to my junk folder

    Also waitlisted. Anyone know the odds of getting an interview if you’re on the waitlist? Or how long it is?

    I was Interview waitlisted last year and did not get an interview. I ended up doing a file review and was told normally 20 people decline interviews, but last year only like 5 people declined and I was in the top 10 :/

    I was waitlisted as well. Guess it feels a little better than a rejection honestly

    Do you know if we can inquire about our ranking pre-file review?

    I interviewed at Virginia Maryland last year and I'm pretty sure that everyone who meets the requirements for the program that does not get offered an interview, is waitlisted for an interview. So the list is very long. Someone correct me if I am wrong?

    Last year they would not tell you your place on the waitlist, so I would guess that’s the same for this year

    Well this felt like news but in that case, just says whether you meet the requirements, not put you anywhere near knowing if you're close...

    Interview waitlisted! Does anyone know around how many get waitlisted? Seems like a large amount! This is my second time applying to vet school, first time applying to VMCVM.

    Yes I do! Luckily in between my first time applying and being interviewed and now I’ve gotten a good job as a secondary teacher that pays well- many perks to being a teacher.

    So at least I know if every school falls through (I hope not), I have a pretty secure job still.

    Congrats!!! I’m interested in your stats just to have an idea of what type of applicant got an offer.

    Would you mind sharing?

    Just found this residency thing, "50 positions are reserved for Virginia residents, and 30 positions for Maryland residents. Up to 40 additional positions may be filled by nonresidents, 6 of those reserved for WV residents."

    3.66 - 3.70 GPA depending upon how it’s calculated/what classes they include (post-Bacc etc)

    3.90 last 45 GPA

    3.73 (I think) science GPA.

    ~600 hours paid vet experience
    ~300 unpaid companion shadowing
    ~150 unpaid large animal shadowing

    Assorted extracurriculars, but not many. No research.

    2 letters of Rec from vets, 1 from an employer at a physical therapy clinic.

    In my basic VMCAS essays I talked about how I always wanted to be a vet, and then my last year of college I got freaked out, didn’t apply to vet school, and pursued PA school. A year and 1000 hours of human patient care later, it just dawned on me how big of a mistake I was making and I got back on track.

    Talked about my personal virtues and qualities I feel that make a good person, much less a good vet.

    The funniest thing was my VM specific essay on resiliency—I don’t know what came over me, but my first paragraph was about the Napoli Rock Climbing Goby and how it embodied resiliency to me. Bear in mind, I have not researched or even seen this fish in person, I just thought they were cool and I felt like they were resilient fish haha. It goes to show that you can be interesting on essays I suppose!
