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 a new VMCAS and Cornell Supplemental Application. 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.
