    Accepted Stats?

    Advertisements



    Saw this on the med students forum. Accepted students, if you don't mind, what were your stats/highlights of your application?

    I was about 3.2 science GPA, lower for cumulative, and 1290 GRE.

    I am a little older than most of my classmates, so I had quite a bit of experience both in a zoo type environment and in a small animal clinic.

    I had what I considered very solid LOR's, all from veterinarians and 1 from a faculty member at a vet school and 1 from a former faculty member.

    Wow your GRE score is great!!!

    I didn't want to turn this into a "what are my chances" thread but my GRE score really sucked!! I got a 1060 both times I tested.

    My science GPA is 3.38 and cumulative about 3.45 so hopefully that will offset my bad GRE score a little I HATED taking the GRE and I really don't want to take it again

    You shouldn't have any problems getting in with those stats. You have a good GPA and your GRE is close to the average so don't worry. By getting a pretty good GPA, you have done the hard part and just need to "dress" up your application by getting good letters of recommendation (I got 2 from science professors and 1 from a vet that I volunteered with), animal volunteer experience, extracurriculars, and a nice personal statement. Then you will just have to wait for the interview to come in. The admissions people always stress that they look at your entire application and not just one area. I think that you have a GREAT chance at earning an acceptance but remember we are just students on this board, so don't relax until you have the acceptance letter in your hand.

    I have absolutely no idea...sorry. I would guess that once an interview is granted, most of the hurdles have been...um hurdled. Just a guess though.

    I don't think the MCAT would be accepted. I could be wrong. When I was applying, the VCAT was still around but I think most people take the GRE for vet school (in North America and Caribbean).

    Does the SGU website say they take the MCAT for the vet school?

    I think there are more opportunities within vet med than med (yes, biased). If you do decide to switch, good luck to you.
