DVM Admissions



Applications and Tracking Page

The application process typically begins in June, a year prior to enrolling.  There are two applications required for admission:

The VMCAS collects biographical data, academic information, animal experiences, veterinary experiences, evaluator information, and an essay.  There are three evaluations required to be sent electronically through this application called electronic letters of evaluation (eLor). Official transcrips are also sent to VMCAS (recommended by September 2nd). The deadline for the VMCAS to be electronically submitted and completed evaluations is September 15, 2015, by midnight ET.

The Cornell Supplemental Application collects information regarding prerequisite course work, animal/ veterinary/ biomedical research experiences that will have letters of evaluation, and short answer statements.  The deadline for this application is September 30, 2015.  Along with the application being electronically submitted by the deadline, Cornell also requires an application fee of $65, any additional evaluations beyond the VMCAS eLors (optional),  official GRE or MCAT scores, and NYS Residency Form if a NYS resident. 

The application instructions can be found on the following PDF:

Tracking Page

Once you begin your Cornell Supplemental Application a tracking page will be available for you to follow up on your application.  On the tracking page we will verify prerequisite courses completed and indicate when transcripts, evaluations, and standardized test scores come in.  This will allow you to follow up on missing documents to ensure your application is complete by the application deadline.
