DVM Applicant Interview

Some veterinary schools use interviews as a part of their application process. The interview questions can cover topics from veterinary experience, ethical scenarios/situations, an understanding of the veterinary profession, or personal questions that allow the committee to get an overall feel for the candidate. If an applicant is invited to an interview, he or she should prepare for it beforehand.

NC Residency

Gaining North Carolina residency will allow the student to pay in-state tuition while in vet school. For the NCSU-CVM, the in-state tuition is $15,378 while out of state is $38,140. Gaining NC residency is very beneficial, but it is also a 13 month process that has to be completed before being able to pay in-state tuition.
