Forum for the future Class of 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I was hoping to start a new forum for the class of future class of 2019 (I know it's alittle early haha).

 

I am just in my second year of undergrad, and I am planning on applying for the class of 2019, even though I won't stand a chance.

Soooooo, I was also hoping to get information on preparing for the interviews of UCVM and WCVM!

I heard that the two universities have different format for the interview, so if anyone had more information, please share!

MMI is another issue :( It could be just me having difficulties finding materials, but does anyone have any source that could be used for preparing purposes?

 

 

If you had answer to any of the questions above, I would be very grateful for information. 

If you are already a student, please share! 

 

Thanks everyone!

I'm also going into second year and planning to apply to OVC in 2015. Though my chances are slim, I'm hoping for the best! Best of luck!

I didn't know that MCAT was a required for some of the other schools, so this year I can only apply at U of S and U of C (which I am completely okay with, I just wanted more chance).

I probably study for MCAT next summer.. Too bad I didnt find about it sooner  :(

My chances are quite slim too... but let's not give up! :)

Thanks and good luck to you as well!

I'm applying to OVC as well this year. However, you may want to check out the residency restrictions for vet schools. As far as I recall, you must be a resident of the territories or prairies to apply to either UofC or UofS. Similarly, you must be a maritime or eastern resident to apply at Atlantic. I may be mistaken, so certainly check.

Hi!! I have been busy with school and havent had the chance to check the forum! 

In regards to residency, I can apply to U of C or U of S because I live Alberta, but that's about it unfortunately.

I am working on my application form as of right now and it's quite challenging :(

I hope yours is going great!! :)

Is there anyone here that is applying to WCVM and did their undergrad at U of C?

I was looking at the WCVM prerequisites and noticed that they require a microbiology. What microbiology did U of C students use? CMMB 343?

I haven't taken CMMB 343 and am graduating this year, so I was hoping they might take a different course instead. I did CMMB 411, does anyone know if that counts?

 

Second question (I couldn't really find this on their site)

Does WCVM grant interviews based on cGPA, 2 best yrs GPA and/or prerequGPA?

My cGPA isn't very good (~3.1) because I had a rough first 2 years, but my 2 most recent/best years are about a 3.7. I also have extensive experience in the equine field (~12 years).

I am taking CMMB 343 this following semester since that's what I heard they needed. I would definitely try to get hold of them if I were you. 

I also am not sure about how they look at GPA... 

There are so many questions to be answered haha.

I assume that you have already applied for WCVM??
