Entrance into the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree program is very competitive. In some cases it could take a couple of application cycles to gain admission into the program. We encourage students to reapply and offer advice in ways to strengthen an application for a future cycle.
Previous applicants who would like to reapply must complete and submit both the VMCAS and Cornell Supplemental Application and all supporting documents. Starting this year, VMCAS will allow applicants from the previous year only acces to their application to update. All supporting documents (eLors, transcripts, etc.) would need to be submitted again.
The Cornell Supplemental Application will need to be completed once again and access from last year is not available. However, documents such as evaluations can be reused from the preceding year's file if nothing new has affected the document (additional hours during the experience). Re-applicants should indicate on Cornell's Supplemental Application which documents they want placed in their new application. VMCAS does not retain documents; previous applicants must still submit 3 new evaluations with their VMCAS application. Letters on file at Cornell cannot be used by VMCAS to complete this requirement.
There are a couple of places on the application where students can list documents they would like to re-use. We will track them in on their tracking page so they will know we have pulled them forward.
