This tool, as a guideline, provides data from the veterinary schools on individual applicant pool size, GPA averages, GRE scores, and more. You can access this list by clicking on the Admitted Student Statistics webpage. For a complete listing of the 2020-2021 cycle please visit this link.

Will I improve my chances of admission to the NCSU CVM if I attend NCSU as an undergraduate and/or take required science courses there?
NCSU CVM evaluates the same applicant criteria no matter what college the applicant attended for his or her undergraduate education. While about 40% of each incoming NCSU CVM cohort are graduates of NCSU, there is no special consideration given to NCSU undergraduates.
