I didn't see a thread up already for the VMRCVM applicants for this year, so I decided to start one. Anyone else apply this year?
I'm an OOS applicant but VMRCVM is my first choice I'm from Massachusetts but came to VA for an internship over the summer and loved it here. I currently have a nursing (tech) job at the VMRCVM equine hospital in Leesburg - I so badly want to become a Hokie!
Waiting to hear is so painful! Good luck to all!
I hope you applied to OOS schools too! I know lots of people who were IS for vmrcvm who ended up going to an OOS school. So no worries and keep ur head up!I'm a Maryland resident, so I'm kind of in-state but not. Had a meeting with an admissions person over the summer (in a group when they came to Maryland) and she pretty much told me my chances of getting in were slim. We'll see
From their website:Hey guys,
Im an OOS applicant and I am currently living in FL. I was just wondering if anyone has any idea when to expect any information from them or when their interviews usually fall.
I would appreciate any info, hope the application process is going well for all! =)
assuming this is true because it came directly from an administrator, put these dates in your calendar! because if you get an interview invite there is NO changing the date for vmrcvm. i know you're probably thinking, why would i ever not be able to go to one of my interviews?!? well, i'm sure a lot of you who get invited to vmrcvm will also get invited to other OOS schools and there could be interview conflicts between schools. vmrcvm will not budge at all so it is nice to know if you get a different interview you can call the other school up right away and see if you can change the datesInterviews will be held on January 28 and 29.
Hey! Are you working there right now/in what department? I started in Nursing in the beginning of November and am starting to play in the OR now, too. I met Schrodingerr a few weeks ago. Cool running into you guys!Equitate and Schrodingerr-I work there too. Party at the EMC! I think I know who you are Schrodingerr but I'm not sure who you are Equitate. Sure we'll meet sometime though!
they do all OOS and IS interviews at the same time. It really isn't that much because they don't take many OOS applicants. So majority of the people interviewed are from VA and MD.Hey!

Yikes to the possible late January interview dates. Does anyone know how far in advance they contact applicants before the scheduled interviews? Do they do all OOS & IS interviews the same weekend? That seems like a lot!
According to the website, we hear from them regarding an interview invite at the beginning of January. It was January 8th last year, I think, so I'm assuming thereabouts.Yikes to the possible late January interview dates.

you should post this in the FAQ under pre-vet, i asked a Q about it for future applicants but no one has answered it yet. i dont want to look stupid answering my own question lolAccording to the website, we hear from them regarding an interview invite at the beginning of January.

As for the MMI formatting: It's a series of mini-interviews. There are either 6 or 8 of them, I can't remember. Anyway, each scenario is posted on the outside of a separate interview room. You have some time to think about it first, then enter the room and discuss your position/what you would do. There are no wrong answers but they're looking for certain character traits - integrity, for example. A sample scenario we were given by an admissions officer was "Imagine you and a research partner are about to fly to another city and present your research to a group of people. Your partner suddenly balks at going. What do you do?"
I have been wondering the exact same thing! If you find out let me know!!Unfortunately I saw on the official rejections that someone got a negative snail mail letter. Does anyone know if they send all of their info through snail mail or if some are through e-mail? I am on break at my parents' house so will not be at my current address (my permanent one instead) and if they send through snail mail, I won't be able to get any info for a month! I guess I should probably try and call and see what they say.
