Texas Tech University

Selection Process

Robert L. Duncan Plaza

The selection of students for admission interviews will be conducted by the Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine's Admissions Committee and will be a holistic process that balances each applicant's academic metrics, attributes, and life experience relative to the goal of our program of graduating students who will serve rural and regional communities of Texas. In selecting candidates to review for interviews, an applicant must have a minimum 2.9 overall GPA and a minimum 2.9 science GPA. Grades will not be factored after meeting these minimum standards when selecting students for interview or acceptance.

Interview invitations will go out mid-December 2022. Once applicants are granted an interview, factors other than grades will be used for the selection of candidates, such as likelihood of service to rural and regional Texas, personal attributes, life experience, and meeting the mission and fostering the core values of the School of Veterinary Medicine.

We will be conducting in-person interviews for the Fall 2022-2023 admissions cycle on January 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2023. Notification of interview will be sent to qualified applicants through the School of Veterinary Medicine application portal (https://vetschool.admissions.ttu.edu/). Once invited for an interview, applicants can select their preferred interview date. Please know that the School of Veterinary Medicine's Admissions Team will do their best to accommodate all preferred interview dates, but it is not a guarantee applicants will receive their preferred interview date.

The interview structure will be a relaxed format of Multi Mini Interviews (MMI). Interview days will begin with a 45 minute orientation and faculty introductions. Applicants then will go through a series of three 20 minute stations. All interviews will be conducted on the School of Veterinary Medicine's Amarillo Campus.

The School of Veterinary Medicine's Admissions Committee makes recommendations of students for admission to the Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs who will make the final determination of students for admission offers.

Applicants will be notified of acceptance to School of Veterinary Medicine by mid-February. Applicants will need to confirm acceptance by mid-April 2023 and pay a seat fee (non-refundable matriculation fee) of $500.00 that will be applied to the 1st semester tuition.
