Aced my CASPer
I really appreciated my CASPer strategy session with Dr. J. He was very informative, talked with respect and easy to understand. He walked me through any questions and concerns I had. He also walked me through some practices questions. Great job to Dr. J – thanks so much for your help.

Applying to the Ontario Veterinary College | University of Guelph
Admission to the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program is highly competitive. Our specialized veterinary coaches know exactly what it takes to be successful in getting into OVC. Prior to applying to OVC, you’ll need to complete at least two years of an undergraduate degree including eight required courses. Your application will also be evaluated based upon personal references and your practical hands-on experience with animals and veterinarians.
1. VETERINARY EXPERIENCE
Gain veterinary experience, specifically with a supervising veterinarian is essential in being competitive. Some examples include working with veterinarians in, clinical practice, research laboratories, animal shelters, animal rehabilitation facilities, public health settings or another related industry where a veterinarian is employed. The goal in making this a requirement is to ensure candidates truly know what it means to be a veterinarian. It is expected that this category of experience will involve job shadowing/assisting the veterinarian(s) and not just reception or other administrative duties.
It has been suggested that experience within Canada and the USA is recommended, rather than only pursuing international opportunities. Remember there is no minimum amount of experience required, but you should be doing enough to convince an objective evaluator that you are passionate about veterinary medicine.
2. ANIMAL EXPERIENCE
According to OCV: “Animal experience includes working with livestock, breeding/showing various species, working in a pet store, equestrian activities and any other animal related hobby/experience where a veterinarian is not always present, or does not supervise you. Animal experience does not include pet ownership or college/university courses that involve animals. Animals are defined as vertebrates for this purpose.
3. EXTRACURRICULAR EXPERIENCE / EMPLOYMENT
Working in a team setting is critical for any job in healthcare. Showing this to an admissions panel is an important step in being competitive. Jobs, sports, and volunteer activities that hone your communication, interpersonal and organizational skills are important. These experiences do not have to involve working with animals. These experiences are ones you are actively involved in and have a role in (organizing, volunteering in, etc.). Being simply a member is not enough.
What are the Prerequisites for Veterinary Medicine?
The requirements for each Veterinary Medical College vary across Canada, the United States and Internationally and we encourage all our students to review the specific websites of each institution. As a general rule a competitive GPA will demonstrate a 3.7 in each of the science and non-science prerequisites required for the Veterinary Medical program. Within Canada, the MCAT is no longer required. In the United States, some programs may still accept the MCAT as a component of your application.
