What was your expectation vs. reality of living in North Grafton/outside of Boston?
Serenity Beaumont
33:05
This is a question for anyone to answer. I am a current Tufts student looking to apply to the graduate school through the early assurance program. What sort of experience does the admissions team took for in students such as these that are applying a little earlier on in their academic career. I guess I thought the expectation is that you need to have a lot of research experience, but I would like to get an idea.
Gabrielle Pilla

Was it easy to get involved in research?

Kate kind of touched on this, but what was your expectation vs reality of the vet school application process as a whole? Any advice?
Kelly Butler
35:00
I’m a adult student going back to school (will be 30 when I apply, currently doing pre-vet post-bac) - would love to hear any insight for non-traditional students/applicants!

To Kelly: have a high GPA will make the application for Vet schools much easier and less stressful.

What were your expectations vs reality of schoolwork/studying? For example, is vet school test heavy but you also have assignments or is it straight studying?

You mentioned that there is definitely enough time to get involved with clubs, but is there enough time to be involved with non-vet-related clubs as well? (i.e. intramural sport clubs, dance, etc)
Ninette Rodriguez
