PVM veterinary students lead a food animal discussion track during an interview day for prospective DVM students
Purdue veterinary students Brook Unruh and Nick Newsome, both of the DVM Class of 2020, and Jon Richardson of the DVM Class of 2021, lead a discussion session on the Food Animal Track for prospective DVM students in Lynn 1136 during last Friday’s (February 1) Interview Day.

Nearly 300 prospective Purdue DVM students visited Lynn Hall during the last two Fridays as part of the College of Veterinary Medicine’s DVM Program admissions process.  The students and their families traveled from near and far for the interview days that included discussion sessions about life as a veterinary student, the tracked curriculum, international programs, and other topics, as well as tours and an evening banquet that featured a Q&A session with a student panel.  Guests came from across the U.S. and included international students from as far away as China.

A host of faculty and staff were involved in the various aspects of the interview days. “Special thanks to all of the faculty and staff who work tirelessly to ensure that our interviewees and their guests have a positive and informative experience while here for our interview days,” said Dr. Jim Weisman, assistant dean for student affairs and clinical associate professor. With the interviews completed, Purdue Veterinary Medicine’s Admissions Committee will be moving forward with the process of selecting candidates for the incoming class.  More than 1,400 applications were received for the 84 seats in the new class.  Eagerly anticipated offers of admission are expected to go out in mid-February.
