Everything You Need to Know about Applying to Veterinary School (Straight from the Horse's Mouth)
Don’t miss a beat this application cycle – there’s a lot to keep track of when you apply to veterinary school. These updates and deadlines for applying to Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and/or Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine will set you on the right path!
In previous years, veterinary applicants were required to submit their Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores for consideration for admission. This is no longer the case because veterinary applicants are not required to take the GRE for Entry Year 2022. However, if you've previously taken the GRE, you will enter that information in the application. Valid test dates are those taken between August 1, 2017 and September 30, 2021.
Please reach out to the individual schools if you have further questions about GRE score considerations.
As a veterinary applicant, you must enter planned activities. The [Planned Activities] section of the application asks you to list all future activities in which you plan on participating in between October 2021 and August 2022. This is your opportunity to list what types of work, research, community service, or extracurricular activities you will be filling your time with until you matriculate into veterinary school.
See page 36 of the Application Handbook for detailed instructions about how to enter your planned activities.
You will send transcripts to TMDSAS only upon request after you have interviewed with one of the veterinary schools. TMDSAS won't be able to confirm your transcripts have been received if they are sent before they are requested.
Get more information about submitting transcripts on the TMDSAS website.
