wow nice!!! are you traveling far?
So exciting!!!!! Congrats & good luck!
Yeah, I have to drive 6 hours but hopefully it will be worth it!
Anyone getting prepared in a specific way they find helpful?
for the reception the night before the interview, how business casual is it? some places allow dark wash jeans where others wear dress pants and i’m just trying to figure out what to wear already have my professional outfit set for the interview but stumped for the night before

I don't really remember what others were wearing, but I think I wore slacks and a sweater and did not feel out of place.
If you wore dark wash jeans and a nice top I don't think anyone would notice or care, but I'd say most people will probably be in dress pants or khakis and the equivalent of a dress shirt or sweater.

I was planning on wearing khakis and a nice sweater or long sleeve shirt if that’s helpful
I emailed them yesterday asking for a status update from the interview waitlist. Got an email this morning that they apparently emailed me yesterday buuuuutttt I got off the waitlist!!!! I’ll be interviewing this Saturday!!!!!
Emailed this morning, its weird that you didnt hear and they emailed you.
wow. I guess we should be emailing them.
Emailed still on waitlist...lord if I got off I'd drop the dog off,pack a bag, and drive up immediately as its a 16hr drive from here o.o least it was when I went to washington D.C by car. Probably won't though as I dont think anyone else will be declining
Yeah I was surprised I didn’t get anything yesterday. I had 24 hours from yesterday to give than an answer and when I read the email I had less than 2 hours lol
Awww...“We want to thank you for your consideration of our program and all of the hard work you have put into applying to the program. Regretfully, all of our interview seats have been filled and we will not be making any further offers for interviews and the admissions cycle. We wish you future success in achieving your goal of becoming a veterinarian.”
Good luck to all that got an interview!!
Me too. Rejected last year and interview waitlisted this time so it was a bit of progress!
Hey we're moving on up!
this is my third time applying. rejected the first time, waitlisted for interview the second, and interviewing the third! like ive been saying this entire cycle, third times the charm!!
If its encouraging at all - I got in at VMCVM on my third try! Goodluck this weekend!
So how’d everyone think they did?
I think my interviews went well, I was very comfortable in most of the scenarios (hopefully not too comfortable?). I think I thought through them well and spoke fairly clearly. I’m afraid my responses were just “good” and not stellar. Although Dr. Pelzer did say that the least nervous interviewees usually do very well, which makes me feel better.
I think I did a good job of representing myself. Hopefully, it aligns with their admissions criteria. It feels like a crapshoot with so many qualified candidates. I've got no idea how they'll rate me.
I think I did well, I wasn't nervous and was myself, so I hope I discussed enough of what they were looking for.
We could be less than week away y’all! This wait is so agonizing!
2016 they sent out decisions on February 10th, in 2017 it was the 9th, and 2018 it was the 13th! Goodluck everyone!
So while they’re looking at our numbers, I figured I’d look at their numbers
This is impeccable lol. I wouldn't mind them just taking us out of our misery and letting us know today so I can have the weekend to either cope or celebrate the decision.
I agree. Should we also assume that emails will likely go out between 4:30 pm and 5:00 pm?
Anything afternoon might be fair game, I got my interview email at 1:00pm on the dot.
MD IN-STATE ACCEPTANCE!!!!!! im so excited!!!
Alternate OOS, does anyone know how quick they pull people from the waitlist? And how much the OOS list moves?
OOS Alternate -_-
Will everyone find out today? I still haven't heard anything.
The OOS waitlist and IS waitlist tend to move a lot as long as people notify that they are not taking their seats. Usually this is due to financial constraint, or being accepted to either their IS school or preferred school.
Same here. MD resident.
OOS Accepted! I'm 95% sure I will be accepting my offer so I'll be looking for people to share housing with (also can't believe I am posting this!!!!)
Does anyone know of its possible to get in-state tuition after getting in state residency?
In general, if you were offered an OOS seat you will pay OOS tuition all four years even if you become a VA resident during that time.
Talk to the admissions staff for sure if you have a specific situation in mind but if you are an OOS student you will probably have to sign something that says you acknowledge that you will pay OOS tuition all four years.
(The only special circumstance I can think of that *might* be able to swing a change in residency is if you are using military benefits to pay for school.)
Does anyone know of any MD IS residents who were wait listed but later accepted? My nerves are shot!
Last year I was #5 and I got called off. I got my waitlist rank the beginning of April, so I am not sure where I started at.
That's reassuring! How long did you have to wait after you found out your ranking?
What is appropriate to wear to classes? In undergrad, I love my hoodies but I feel like those won't work in vet school lol
I got an email probably about a week after. I do remember it was before the decision due date for the accepted students.
The general rule is to wear something appropriate. You're definitely allowed to wear hoodies. There's really only a set dress code for labs (pants, lab coats, closed toed shoes.)
