Prospective DVM students conduct early interviews
The UF College of Veterinary Medicine drew 62 individuals from in-state and out-of-state, who visited Gainesville in late November and early December to interview early for slots available in the next round of admissions to the DVM program.
“Applicants had the opportunity to visit with the Admissions Committee, to tour our facilities and shadow in the clinics, to schedule meetings with faculty members and to spend time with our wonderful students,” said the college’s director of admissions and recruitment, Jonathan Orsini.
The early interview process, now in its second year at the college, “once again received rave reviews from candidates,” Orsini added.
“We hope to continue the process for the fall 2013 admissions cycle,” he said.
More information will be posted on the website when the application cycle begins again in June 2013.
Early interview applicants are selected primarily on the basis of academics. They interview, and if the admissions committee is confident, are accepted soon after. Those that aren’t immediately accepted are reviewed further through the standard review process in December and January.
The remaining UFCVM interviews will be held on two Saturdays in February 2013, Feb. 2 and Feb. 9. Eligible candidates will be notified via email in mid-to-late January if they receive an interview offer, Orsini said.
“We estimate that between 170-180 applicants, including both in-state and out-of-state residents, will be invited for the spring 2013 interviews,” he said.
Those candidates that are not selected for interview will be notified in two batches in late-December and mid-to-late January.
