How did you all feel these experiences helped in applying and getting into school? Do these things give you confidence as an applicant?
Laura Barley - AFT

My question is about the very un-fun topic of debt - as non-traditional students, how did you weigh the decision to take on that burden? Especially if earlier degrees have led you to incur debt in the past. Thank you all so much for sharing your paths to vet school!
Caroline Zaffino
53:25
How much animal/vet experience and variety of experiences did you feel comfortable applying to school with?
Delia Denoff

Is there a chance to enter the dual degree program while you are in vet school?
Noëlle Tubbs

Does the dual degree with the Phd run the same way?
Olivia Williamson
01:03:05
How did you decide which of your experiences were appropriate to include on your application? After being out of undergrad for several years did you decide to include fewer experiences from that time? Did you include many non-animal related experiences like working at Trader Joes?
Christian Shen

^ I'm taking martial arts classes right now. Should I add that? how relevant is that?
Christian Shen
01:05:18
Thank you all. That was very encouraging.

That’s true, I worked 4 jobs at one point which definitely impacted my GPA! I made sure to put them all in

For me, the pandemic really caused a problem with continuing to gain experience (I have a lot from years ago but not so much from recently because I was in graduate school doing research). I had been preparing a bunch of opportunities to get experience in wildlife rehab/vet med in January-March 2020, and just as I got them going, Covid cancelled all of it. I have still been struggling to get anyone to allow me in to their facilities since then. There may be opportunities starting now, but my application is due Sept 15. Should I explain this in my application, and maybe mention the opportunities I’m trying to get going?
Noëlle Tubbs
01:32:57
Oh sorry!
Noëlle Tubbs

Sorry it’s so long, I couldn’t see how much I was typing in the small text box :)

If I just started an experience and put that on VMCAS (with only a few hours), should I update the experience in December as well?
Delia Denoff
