Who can see your viewing activity?
What is one error/mistake that you can caution us against in the application process?
Where can we find the supplemental application?
My question was answered :)
Of all the requirements and other aspects of the application (GPA, LOR’s, Essays, Personal Statement, experiences, etc), which would you say is the most important? (At tufts and in general)
You mentioned you had advice on how many schools to apply to. I have heard conflicting opinions on this so would love to hear what you think.
For the application, do you prefer the video or the essay?
Are interviews most likely going to be in person or on zoom for this year?
James Bowe (he/him)
Is the difficulty of your college taken into account when looking at gpa?
Sarah Timbie she/her
Do you have a recommendation as far as whether it’s better to get experience little by little over time or a more intense all at once sort of thing? (I’m thinking of during the school semester vs. over the summer in the situation you couldn’t do both)
How many applicants will be selected for interviews this year? How do you choose which applicants you would like to interview?
When do interviews start?
How important is the interview for the application?
Could I apply this fall even if I’m starting the prerequisite courses this fall and know that I’ll be done with them by next summer? Can you have little experience by the application due date but still have an advantage if you have a strong academic record?
How would you recommend preparing for the interview?
Christine Powell (she/her)
Do you have any specific school recommendations for someone with a strong research background but a non-traditional major? :)
Where do you submit the writing course curriculum to Tufts? I know you have to select the courses that fit the prerequisites on VMCAs, is that sufficient enough to make sure the prerequisite is satisfied?
Do you accept pass/fail credit for prerequisite courses taken during Spring 2020?
Maya Reynoso Williams
Is a senior thesis or independent study that counts for credit at your undergrad institution considered as research experience in vet school applications or do you prefer jobs/internships in research?
How fast does the waitlist move?
Tufts- Ford Barnet
Tufts does ask you to enter the name for the three categories though.
^I believe that's just to make sure the application is complete
