How can you stand out as an applicant?

Strong academics and substantial veterinary experience alone may not be the only important factors in selecting future veterinary students. Here are just a couple of ways you can stand out from the crowd:

  • Participate in extracurricular activities, community service, and take on leadership roles.
  • Spend time making sure your essays are the best representations of you. Make sure a reader is going to feel intrigued and will want to learn more about you!
  • Research is also a form of experience. If you are interesting in working as a veterinary researcher, search for research experience and opportunities. Find a professor you can connect with in a laboratory setting.
  • Develop strong relationships with the veterinarians, professors, and community members you will ask for letters of recommendation. The better they know you and your goals, the better the letter!
