Ross Vet uses a holistic approach for selecting and admitting students to our DVM program. This means we take into account an applicant's non-academic attributes and experiences in addition to important academic elements, such as GPA and GRE.
At Ross Vet, there is no minimum GRE requirement, but rather we use the GRE to better get to know each applicant as a "whole." Our holistic review process helps ensure every applicant gets thoroughly evaluated as an individual and a fair shot at gaining admission to the DVM program.
We take a holistic approach to admissions. While we do consider your GPA, GRE, and academic performance when making an admissions decision, we look at much more: your knowledge of the veterinary profession, personal character, interpersonal skills, motivation, exposure to animal medicine, and other qualities. If you have vet school questions, email Admissions.
Since we operate on rolling admissions, there are no formal application deadlines. We review applications for each class until it is full. If the semester you have applied to becomes full, we will review your application for the next available class. Our flexible program has three start dates; January, May, and September.
Once your application is complete, it will be reviewed to determine if you will move on to an interview. If so, you will be notified, and your interview will be scheduled. After your interview, our Admissions Committee will decide within 2-4 weeks.
