The evaluation of the top qualified applicants in the Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Utah (WIMU) applicant pools may include a personal interview. The interview consists of a 30-minute individual interview with two to four members of the Admissions Committee. Designed to ask behavioral and knowledge-based questions, the interview will be used to assess the applicant’s motivation, communication and teamwork skills, compassion and empathy, professionalism, integrity and ethics, maturity, experience with a veterinarian in your desired area of interest, and knowledge of the profession. The interview is an important part of the assessment process, and the applicant should consider this a professional interview (prepare and dress accordingly). Interviewees are also encouraged to review their applications so that they are comfortable answering any question that might be targeted toward something they put on their VMCAS application.

Non-resident applicants, including certified applicants from WICHE states, are not interviewed for our program.

In addition to the interview, applicants are encouraged to extend their stay so that they can participate in the many scheduled events that are designed to provide information about the DVM program. Some of these opportunities may include: attending a class or facility tour, meeting with current students, and attending an evening mixer where you can meet other applicants, along with faculty, staff, and students.
