All applications to the College of Veterinary Medicine are now processed through the centralized Veterinary Medical College Applications Service. The Office of Academic and Student Affairs conceived of the workshops as a way to guide prospective applicants through common pitfalls in the application process.
The workshops, available April through August, are targeted to applicants who are working with veterinarians during the summer. Veterinarians in geographic proximity are encouraged to have four or more applicants gather in one location for the conference call. The workshops also will be made available to applicants who are attending universities and colleges within the state.
A speaker phone that will pick up voices from around a table will be required. Applicants will need to download files from the College Web site and read the information before the workshop. The workshop will address common problems and errors that may delay or terminate the processing of an application and will describe what information to include in the personal statement.
