Preparing for Interviews and Offers of Admission


When should I expect to hear back from the vet schools?

Each school has its own protocol with regards to interviews. Typically, interviews for veterinary school take place in January. It is at the discretion of each school whether or not they notify you if you have not been selected for an interview.

Veterinary School Acceptance

When will vet school acceptances be announced?

Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine will make all admission decisions by mid-March.

All components of the application are evaluated by the Selections Committee. Once the review is complete, the Committee meets to select applicants to be recommended for admission. For more information, visit the Selection Process page on the Texas A&M Veterinary School website.

Applicant Responsibilities During Admissions Process

Interview protocol, withdrawing an application, and enrollment.

Interview Protocol and Etiquette 

Applicants must respond promptly to all invitations for interview. In those instances, when an applicant cannot appear for a previously scheduled interview, the applicant is responsible for promptly notifying the school. The cancellation should be undertaken by telephone with the school, followed by an email. If an applicant cancels an interview within 72 hours of scheduled day and time, and TMDSAS is notified by an institution, all schools to which the applicant applied will also be notified in writing. 


Withdrawing an Application 

Applicants who choose to withdraw from one or more schools must notify each school and TMDSAS in writing via internal message of their decision. Withdrawn applications can be reinstated by sending a message through the application internal messaging system until Oct 30, 2020. 

Administrative Withdrawals: Applications will not be transmitted to member institutions without a residency determination. After October 30, 2020, applicants who have not resolved their residency in their applications within 30 days of being informed of the issues will be administratively withdrawn.

If an application has been held for any reason other than residency, after October 30, 2020, applicants who have not resolved issues in their applications within 30 days of being informed of the issues will be transmitted to the schools to which they’ve applied. 


Notifying Institutions of Intent to Enroll 

Applicants who have made a final decision on the school they plan to attend have the obligation to promptly withdraw their applications from all other schools.
