Good evening !
Jamie Gray (she/they)
Happy Monday everyone!
Hello everyone! We will do our best to begin promptly at 4:00 pm Central time! We are so glad you have joined us!
Are Dantes and CLEP required to have separate transcripts or is the military transcript request accepted?
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?
For students applying with a masters degree, how does that get factored into the application process? Do you combine undergraduate and graduate GPAs?
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
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?
Sorry it cut out, what is the last date you recommend for the casper test?
Tobias La Ponza
August 10th ^
Dantes is similar to CLEPS, thank you so much for answering.
Can the person reference be another veterinarian? Or does it have to be someone outside of the veterinary/academic community?
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
What if you're still completing the masters degree?
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.
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 email@example.com.
Great! Thank you!
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?
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.
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?
Sorry. I was just a little confused on that
Yael D. Cordero
Applications without an Academic LOR will not be considered?
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.
Having some trouble hearing Mrs. Rost
I'm sorry, I missed that whole section due to the audio.
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?
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
They mentioned that this is supplemental to help students who may have issues with the VMCAS. @dylanschwartz
Does that mean this supplemental application is not required if your VMCAS is good to go?
So for my biology class the lecture and lab were combined but I need to split it up for this supplemental application?
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?
(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?
I will have to leave soon, where will I be able find the recording?
Can I take CASPer multiple times?
I will send out information regarding how to access the recording via VMCAS!
CASPer allows only one test per application cycle.
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.
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?
my school has a 4 credit lecture and a 0 hour lab, what should i do for submitting that?
Ok thank you!
okay, thank you!
if the repeated course is not a prerequisite, does it need to be listed?
Okay, thank you!
Thank you for your time!
Thank you for speaking with us tonight! It was really helpful information!
Thank you so much!!
Sophie Zhao - you are next to ask a question.
I am a student athlete and I was wondering where I should put that under on the VMCAS application?
Thank you so much! :)
Thank you so much for you time!
Okay thanks so much!
How many people are approximately invited to interview with K State each year?
With that, would you like that information in complete sentences or would bullet points work?
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.
We interview between 430- 450 applicants each year.
Maddie - bullet points or short lists will be fine. This is one area where we make an exception.
Thank you both for your time! This was very helpful!
