A Holistic Approach to Veterinary Medicine

At RUSVM, our approach is to look at applicants holistically–considering not only GRE scores and GPAs, but reviewing overall academic performance in context. What are students’ strengths and weaknesses? Is the desire to care for animals a calling? How has that calling been put into practice?  What experiences have applicant had that would make for a better veterinarian?

To thrive as a profession, veterinary medicine needs many different kinds of people: general practitioners, specialists, researchers, administrators and more.  At Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, finding students who have passion for the studies is what is desired.
