Hello everyone! We will do our best to begin promptly at 4:00 pm Central time! We are so glad you have joined us!
Dominique Williams
37:53
Are Dantes and CLEP required to have separate transcripts or is the military transcript request accepted?
Ashley Long
38:41
For the letters of recommendation, do you only look at the first three or will you look at all of them if we have more than three?
Clarissa Class
40:31
For students applying with a masters degree, how does that get factored into the application process? Do you combine undergraduate and graduate GPAs?
Isabelle Schlehr
42:02
Do you have a course appeal process (form or by email) for a prerequisites? Or should we just fill in the classes that we think most closely fit the class
Baker White
42:27
I did poorly in a class, and am retaking it at a community college this fall. When selecting the course to fulfill the pre req, do I just select the planned course or do I need to include the class it is replacing as well?
Lauren Dock
43:28
Sorry it cut out, what is the last date you recommend for the casper test?
Tobias La Ponza
43:52
August 10th ^
Dominique Williams
45:25
Dantes is similar to CLEPS, thank you so much for answering.
Isabelle Schlehr
45:57
Can the person reference be another veterinarian? Or does it have to be someone outside of the veterinary/academic community?
Isabelle Schlehr
46:04

Hana Johnson
49:39
If you are applying to K-State having already completed a masters degree, your courses from your most recent 45 credit hours will be used to calculate your last 45 credit hour GPA, which will include graduate level courses. @Clarissa Class
tessiabowen
51:24
What if you're still completing the masters degree?
Hana Johnson
51:41
Does the CASPER need to be submitted prior to submitting the VMCAS application? YES. The last date to take the CASPer to have scores to K-State by the Sept. 15 deadline is August 10.
Hana Johnson
53:14
Do you have a course appeal process (form or by email) for a prerequisites? Or should we just fill in the classes that we think most closely fit the class? - YES. You can email any course appeal or substitution questions to us at admit@vet.k-state.edu.
Isabelle Schlehr
53:48
Great! Thank you!
Madison Warner
53:55
If the course we chose to fulfill the writing and communication requirements have codes/names that do not say specifically English or speaking, but are speaking/writing classes, do we need to ask for a course substitute/appeal or can we just match them?
Hana Johnson
54:24
Can the personal reference be another veterinarian? Or does it have to be someone outside of the veterinary/academic community? - YES, it can. If they can speak to your personal qualifications, then it would be appropriate for them to serve as a personal reference.
Clarissa Class
54:42
Do you have to submit transcripts twice ? If I get all current transcripts on VMCAS before I submit, do I have to submit a copy of those to the supplemental application?
Clarissa Class
55:14
Sorry. I was just a little confused on that
Yael D. Cordero
55:24
Applications without an Academic LOR will not be considered?
Hana Johnson
55:28
If a course was retaken for a higher grade, can we select the retake course when matching prerequisites on VMCAS? - We will average course grades in our evaluation.
dylanschwartz
57:42
Having some trouble hearing Mrs. Rost
Elizabeth Hayden
58:06
I'm sorry, I missed that whole section due to the audio.
Kylie
58:06
If you have academic probation written for a semester on your application [from during a difficult time] but there were never any disciplinary actions taken, can you say No for that question on the VMCAS?
dylanschwartz
59:31
I understand that this application is specific for K-State, but I believe most of this information is already supplied on the VMCAS application?
Tobias La Ponza
01:00:12
They mentioned that this is supplemental to help students who may have issues with the VMCAS. @dylanschwartz
dylanschwartz
01:00:42
Does that mean this supplemental application is not required if your VMCAS is good to go?
Natalie Gydesen
01:01:12
So for my biology class the lecture and lab were combined but I need to split it up for this supplemental application?
Dominique Williams
01:01:47
My question is about the transcript prerequisite section; I would only have to list the one class I think should meet the requirements not every single course that’s listed on VMCAS right?
Natalie Gydesen
01:01:59
Thanks!
Lelland
01:06:41
(slightly complicated question) I have 2 courses that will be completed around august 16. I have already submitted transcipts of current courses. Should I wait until then to submit updated transcripts to VMCAS and KSU. I want these courses included in my GPA. VMCAS said that I will be challenging the final due date waiting on this timeframe. What is your view?
Morgan Burns
01:08:30
I will have to leave soon, where will I be able find the recording?
Sohui Park
01:08:48
Can I take CASPer multiple times?
Hana Johnson
01:09:01
I will send out information regarding how to access the recording via VMCAS!
Callie Rost
01:28:45
CASPer allows only one test per application cycle.
Callie Rost
01:29:49
You can list one class that fulfills the requirement on both the VMCAS and the KSU CVM SA. You can choose the course and provide the information.
Clarissa Class
01:32:23
Is there some sort of processing time after you take the CASPer test? I scheduled it for the end of august and I’m already planning on submitting my application early august. Is this ok?
Ashley Zoltowski
01:34:13
my school has a 4 credit lecture and a 0 hour lab, what should i do for submitting that?
Clarissa Class
01:34:31
Ok thank you!
Ashley Zoltowski
01:34:41
yes ma’am
Ashley Zoltowski
01:34:58
okay, thank you!
Lauren Dock
01:37:05
if the repeated course is not a prerequisite, does it need to be listed?
Lauren Dock
01:37:47
Okay, thank you!
Gretchen Davidson
01:41:34

Sophie Zhao - you are next to ask a question.
Natalie Gydesen
01:44:40
I am a student athlete and I was wondering where I should put that under on the VMCAS application?
Sohui Park
01:44:52
Thank you so much! :)
Robert Estrada
01:45:04
Thank you so much for you time!
Natalie Gydesen
01:45:52
Okay thanks so much!
Ashley Long
01:50:09
How many people are approximately invited to interview with K State each year?
Maddie DeLeon
01:50:31
With that, would you like that information in complete sentences or would bullet points work?
Callie Rost
01:53:04
I saw a few questions about graduate courses and how we consider those. We will use graduate courses in the last 45 credit hour GPA calculation.
Callie Rost
01:53:26
We interview between 430- 450 applicants each year.
Callie Rost
01:54:16
Maddie - bullet points or short lists will be fine. This is one area where we make an exception.
Katie Glueck
01:54:21
