Veterinary Evaluation Form Instructions

  1. Select "start" to complete the veterinary evaluation form

In your letter of evaluation:

The admission committees are looking for candid, honest insight into the applicant’s strengths and weaknesses. A substantial evaluation provides an accurate assessment of the applicant’s suitability for medical/dental school rather than advocate for the applicant. As such, your description of how the applicant has, or has not, demonstrated any of the following competencies that are necessary for success in medical/dental school is very important: Integrity and Ethics, Reliability and Dependability, Service Orientation, Social/Interpersonal Skills, Teamwork, Capacity for Improvement, Resilience and Adaptability, Cultural Competence and Oral Communication.
