    Hi. RVC was my first choice for vet school, and I had an interview there last week. I found out the day after I have an unconditional offer! So thats great, and I am relieved. Does anyone know what the best accomodation is to apply for??

    Hi - did you get in anywhere else? Depends on whether you want self catering so you could go for College Grove, or for catered in Intercollegiate I heard that Connaught Hall was meant to be good. If you want you can PM me.

    Are you going to RVC this year then too? Well i got straight out rejections from Bristol and Glasgow, I had an interview at Edinburgh last week but i haven't heard their decision yet...but basically RVC was my first choice so either way I am not that bothered! I am thinking of applying for camden grove...how about you?

    Hi I have offers from Bris, edinb, RVC and Liverpool and think that I will be choosing Liverpool. I liked RVC only I think that it is too expensive really for me and my parents - liverpool being the cheapest out of all of them. I think I may have gone for the intercollegiate halls - possibly as I dont trust my cooking! Saying that the rooms at College Grove in Camden are meant to be really nice - but again quite pricey.

    Yeh. its so hard to choose if you have offers at all! Because they are all so good....i basically guess you end up choosing on relatively unimportant (relative to getting into vet school!) things such as cost etc. i love london (i live in amsterdam now) and i am v. much looking forward to the city life in another capital, for the first two yrs at least anyway!
    wish u all the luck!

    Hi I'm in the same position as you because I live in bedfordshire which is fairly near to london (30mins fast train). RVC's my first choice but I really don't want to have to commute every day, esp. when based at camden. I'm going to the hawkshead open day on 20th march so I'm hoping I might find out more there.

    As far as I know and have been told - they are usually pretty flexible as long as you get the A in chem.

    Hi,

    I'm hoping to study vertinary medicine too. Im only in my AS year atm but could you give me some advice on work experience required?

    The prospectuss' of most of the unviersities say you need around 6-10weeks of varied experience - veterinary practice, farm, etc.
    But then some people say you need years of experience.

    I mean, its hard enough getting a few weeks at a vets practice nevermind years, here in Northern Ireland all work experience places are filled months in advance.

    How much workexperience have those of you who have offers done?

    Thanks for your help

    hiya,

    do you have amy lambing experience? im just asking because lambing is valued by the universities, but the farm i help on is lambing now, so if you want lambing experience you need to act quickly as i think most farms lamb around this time! if you have trouble finding a sheep farm you could try asking your local vets if they have any contacts.
