  • Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine Applicant Evaluation Form

    Doctor

    Veterinary applicants are required to submit three evaluations directly to TMDSAS. One evaluation must be completed by a veterinarian. Each evaluation must be completed on the TAMU College of Veterinary Medicine Applicant Evaluation Form.

    Evaluations are an important part of the selections process and should be completed by individuals other than family members who have known the applicant for an extended period of time. The applicants are strongly encouraged to read the questions that are asked on the evaluation form and select evaluators who can provide the most thorough answers to the questions. One evaluation must be completed by a veterinarian. The veterinarian should address what the applicant did while working for him or her. They should also honestly evaluate the applicant's strengths and weaknesses.

    Do not have any evaluations delivered to TMDSAS until after you have completed the [Letters of Evaluation] section of your application.

    You can submit your TAMU CVM Applicant Evaluation Forms via one of the following two options:

    OPTION 1: Email the TAMU CVM Applicant Evaluation Form to the Evaluator:

    1. Enter name of evaluator in placeholder in [Letters of Evaluation] section.
    2. Select Upload Directly as response to “Indicate how your evaluator will send your letter to TMDSAS”.
    3. Enter a valid email for the evaluator.
    4. Once evaluator's name and email are provided, the evaluator will receive an email from TMDSAS with the evaluation form directing him or her to the TMDSAS Evaluator Portal.
    5. Follow-up with evaluator to ensure he/she received the instructional email and attached evaluation form from TMDSAS.
    6. Evaluator will follow instructions provided for completing and submitting the evaluation form and uploading it to the TMDSAS Evaluator Portal.

    OPTION 2: Print & Mail the TAMU CVM Applicant Evaluation Form to the Evaluator:

    1. Enter name of evaluator in placeholder in [Letters of Evaluation] section.
    2. Select Print as response to “Indicate how your evaluator will send your letter to TMDSAS”.
    3. Download and print the TAMU CVM Applicant Evaluation Form. Print a form for each evaluator that will mail in evaluation form.
    4. Complete the top portion of the TAMU CVM Evaluation Form.
    5. Deliver the form to your evaluators. You can do this by mail, by fax or in person.
    6. Your evaluator must then fill out the TAMU CVM Evaluation Form and sign it. Evaluator should mail the completed TAMU CVM Evaluation Form to:

      TMDSAS
      P.O. Box 2175
      Austin, TX 78768

    Only the TAMU CVM Applicant Evaluation Form will be accepted from your evaluators.  No accompanying letter is required or desired by the veterinary school. Letters of evaluation will not be accepted nor will they be included with your application.

    TMDSAS Transcript Request Form

    The TMDSAS Transcript Request Form allows you to create and print request forms to send to registrars at schools you have attended. 

    While TMDSAS will accept transcripts that are not attached to TMDSAS Transcript Request Forms, TMDSAS is not responsible for transcripts that cannot be matched to your application due to the absence of a TMDSAS Transcript Request From.  You are strongly encouraged to utilize these forms.  Be sure to inform the registrars that this form should be attached to the transcript when it is sent to TMDSAS.

    We also strongly recommend that you request personal copies of your transcripts for your use in completing the [College Coursework] section of your application.

    1. Complete the [Colleges Attended] section of the application.
    2. Download the TMDSAS Transcript Request Form.
    3. Fill out the PDF and print it out OR print it and fill it out by hand.
    4. Deliver completed form to registrar at each college attended.
    5. Inform the registrar that the form must accompany the transcript when delivered to TMDSAS.

    Do not have any transcripts delivered to TMDSAS until you have completed the [Colleges Attended] section of your application.

    Is a Transcript Required?

    One official transcript is required from every US, US Territorial, or Canadian college attended. This includes:

    • College-level courses taken while in high school, even if they did not count toward a degree at any college.
    • Colleges at which you took a course, even if transfer credit was later accepted by another school.

    Foreign coursework must be evaluated for US equivalence by an evaluation service and an official copy must be sent from the service directly to TMDSAS.  A list of evaluation services can be found here.

    Helpful Reminders

    • Transcripts submitted to TMDSAS cannot be more than a year old - the print date cannot be more than a year from the time they are submitted.
    • Spring 2017 grades (or Winter 2017 for those on a quarter system) MUST be recorded on your transcript before delivered to TMDSAS.
    • Transcripts for future coursework are not required until the course has been completed and a grade has been recorded.
    • You must send updated transcripts to TMDSAS at the end of each term that coursework is completed between the time of application and expected date of matriculation.
    • You can mail the transcript yourself as long as it remains in a sealed envelope from the registrar.
