Vet Experiences:

What should I improve on? What schools should I add/remove based on my stats? And what are my chances this round? I really do not want to have to apply a 3rd time so any advice is appreciated! Thank you! Side note-thoughts on Arizona CVM?

Did you do file reviews with the schools you applied to last year? They would be able to provide the best advice on what to improve on, especially because I honestly do not see anything about your stats that would suggest you shouldn't get in.

110% agree. Nothing on the surface is obvious. Going off of this I would imagine it's something in your essays or LORs that are holding you back. Ohio might have just been your interview didn't go well. I guess are you also including things like enjoying hiking etc to show you're a more rounded applicant? Definitely a file review is your best bet here.
