The Admissions Staff
Each year the College admits 162 new veterinary students. Due to the number of applicants exceeding the number of spaces available, the College utilizes selective admissions procedures. Applicants are evaluated on academic profiles and certain other non-cognitive factors including motivation and commitment to the profession, character, communication and interpersonal skills, leadership ability, animal exposure and knowledge of the profession.
