On Campus Pre-Vet Presentations & Toursstudents talking

Overview

These two-hour programs are open to all who are interested in a veterinary medicine career. They include a presentation by the director of admissions and a student-guided tour of the college. Guests of pre-vet students are welcome to attend the presentation and participate on the tour.

  • The presentation covers information about the DVM curriculum, how to prepare for a future application, an overview of the application process, ways to strengthen an application, careers in veterinary medicine, and financial aid.
  • The tour is a guided walk-through of the educational facilities and some of our clinical spaces, like the Companion Animal Hospital. These are the only tours offered of the college; we do not offer individual tours.

Registration

Spaces are limited for this program and we ask each attendee to limit their guests to one person in order to allow more students to attend. When you click the registration link below, you will be taken to an RSVP system where you can let us know the date you would like to attend, your name, email address, and your guest's RSVP.

Registration confirmation will be sent closer to the date of the program, along with details on the time and location of the program.

Waitlist

If you are interested in a tour that is marked “Full,” email vet_admissions@cornell.edu and ask to be put on the waitlist. Include the date(s) you are interested in attending and if you are bringing a guest. Cancelations are frequent and those on the waitlist are often able to attend.
