Good news! We’ve finalized arrangements with Ford Barnet, an admissions counselor from Tufts University’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. He will be here on Thursday, October 10th at 6:00 (in the usual room, BioSci 073) to talk about applications and the admissions process. Even if you’re years away from applying or don’t plan to apply to Tufts, you should definitely come to this talk – hearing from people in an admissions office is always insightful and helpful!
Our first official meeting is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 24th at 6:00 in BioSci 073 (the usual room). This will double as a social event/meet-and-greet and an opportunity for Dr. Eason to go over the complicated requirements for vet school. All pre-vet students should try to attend!
We will be hosting a very special guest speaker on Thursday November 15th at
6pm. Jeff Huckel, from NCSU’s college of veterinary medicine has agreed to come
speak with the Pre-Vet Society about vet school admissions. The meeting will be
in BioSci 073 as usual, and we’ll be bringing pizza instead of just the usual
Please consider joining us even if you aren’t planning on applying to NCSU. We

always has some great general advice for pre-vet students and is happy to
answer any questions you might have.
Here is their website in case you want to prepare questions ahead of time:
In short: Guest speaker. Thursday 11/15. 6:00pm. Pizza. Be there.

As promised, we will be hosting a meeting for anyone seeking advice on what classes to take in order to cover all those pre-vet requirements we’ve mentioned. Dr. Eason will be giving a more in depth presentation, and the officers will be there to answer any questions afterwards. The meeting will be Tuesday October 23 at 6pm in BioSci 073.
We hope to see you there!
