If life was fair then every one of you who showed a strong desire to become a vet would be offered a place at university to study veterinary. Unfortunately it isn’t and so not only do you have to ensure that you have an impressive range and breadth of work experience placements, a stellar set of academic grades, and evidence of being more than just an information regurgitator by showing that you have extra-curricular interests, you then need to convince the admissions tutors of your incredible awesomeness. No easy feat!
When I was going through the process of writing my own application to vet school there were no resources like Vet School Success available and the best I was able to do was politely ask a family friend, who was studying at vet school at the time, to lend me his personal statement so that I could at least get some idea of how to structure mine, what to include and basically how to cram in all of the essential information that I wanted to convey to the vet schools. It was a difficult and time consuming process, with draft after draft being written, tweaked, revised and re-written again. Eventually I had something that I was relatively pleased with and that passed several proof-reads by people I trusted and respected. It was finally time to send my application off and begin the anxious period of waiting to hear my veterinary fate.
