A lot of colleges and universities have pre veterinary advisors and additional resources for pre veterinary students, but the following structural issues are very prevalent:
We help bridge some of these gaps that exist in today’s pre veterinary advising infrastructure. You can think of us as a more informed, customized, and in-depth pre pharmacy advising service. Our advisors are accomplished, knowledgeable, and passionate about mentoring and guiding you. They have faced some of the same dilemmas that you are facing. Most importantly, they aren’t working with hundreds of students and can give you the personalized attention you need and deserve.
Applying to veterinary school is akin to running a marathon. Doing well requires a lot of upfront preparation. Your success on race day will be determined by the years of effort you’ve put into being prepared for race day.
Similarly, veterinary schools look at what you’ve done across the last few years. They want to see how you’ve grown not just as a student, but also as a leader, and what makes you uniquely positioned to succeed in veterinary school.
In addition to these more variable tasks, there are must haves such as getting a good GRE score and engaging the right recommenders at the right time.
You might be among the 36% of GRE takers who have to take the test more than once. Or you might realize that someone you thought might be your recommender isn’t a great fit any more. A structured Pre veterinary advising plan can help you make sure you are always on top of your prep. We help you execute your plan A and create a plan B so that there are no surprises if something doesn’t go as planned.
We connect you with your Graduate Coach based on your experience, interests, and goals. Our team of Coaches comprises of veterinarians, graduates of top veterinary schools, and former admissions committee members who know what a top veterinary school looks for.
For our Pre veterinary advising service to be effective, it is important that your Graduate Coach is able to relate to your academic experience and co-curricular interests. We make sure that we pair you with the right person after you fill our intake form.
Attending the right veterinary school can be life changing. It can set you on course to get into the right residency program and eventually, help you specialize in a field that genuinely interests you. Also, not getting into one of your top choice schools can be extremely costly. Reapplying is stressful and it also delays your entry into the workforce. This can easily translate to lost income of $150,000 or more.
Given that getting into the right veterinary school is such a high stakes decision, it is advisable to start preparing early. Our End-to-End Application Support service can help you craft an amazing application, but it cannot make you go back in time to fill potential gaps in your profile. We would recommend using this service if you want to be sure that all your i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed before you apply to veterinary school.
It is imperative that you and your Coach have a strong rapport with each other. Not being able to build a strong relationship can have an adverse impact on your veterinary school application outcomes.
However, it is also important to acknowledge that this relationship is not built overnight. It takes time for your Coach to get to know and vice versa. Hence, we don’t want to prematurely undo any progress that has been made. That being said, getting results for you and making sure you are happy with our service is what matters most to us.
We will leave no stone unturned to make sure that happens, and if that means we need to change your Coach, we will not hesitate to do so. If you feel that we are not meeting your expectations, please email our CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from the CEO’s office will reach out to you within 48 hours.
This program is tailored to your needs. Some students want to use our support across nine months whereas some want to use it across twelve months. Many prospects who are planning to apply in two years purchase this service twice. Schedule a call to learn more about how this service can be customized for your needs.
Your Graduate Coach will be the person you work with. This helps us streamline communication and make sure that you have a clear point of contact who can help you make decisions. However, there is an army of people whose expertise you can leverage.
When you start working with us, you will be assigned a Project Manager in addition to your Graduate Coach. This Project Manager will make sure that your engagement is on track at all times. They will be there if you and your Coach require any additional resources from the Inspira network.
We have a vast network of researchers, former admissions committee members, and alumni who provide us in-depth information about how veterinary school admissions are changing and what you can do to stay relevant. You get to leverage our entire team’s expertise by gaining access to this research.
After you fill out our intake form, we will connect with the Graduate Coach whose experience and expertise are the best fit for your background, goals, and experiences. Your Coach will set up a kickoff meeting with you to plan the engagement. They will work with you to determine concrete activities and tasks that you can start working towards.
After that, you and your Coach will have a video call every quarter to assess progress and realign goals and targets. They will work with you to solve any problems you are facing in achieving your goals. You will also have unlimited access to them via email.
We have streamlined the pre veterinary advising process through years of iterations. Calls with your Graduate Coach are supposed to help you set strategic direction and decide what activities to focus on. The next step is to execute the strategy.
If we are having to change our strategic plan every one to two weeks, something is not right. It takes time to get a research position once you decide what type of position you want. Deciding that you want to shadow a veterinarian is an important step in the direction. However, the next step is to get that position.
We help you through each step, but emails are more efficient for some things. For example, if you want your Coach’s help on drafting a cold outreach template for a veterinarian that you want to shadow, that can happen over email.
We believe that having four calls across the duration of the year is the right number.
Last but not the least, it is worth reminding ourselves of Parkinson’s Law at that point which states doing something will take as much time as you give it. We will never shortchange you, but we also want to make sure both you and your Coach’s time are utilized to the fullest.
Helping you get accepted to your dream veterinary school is your Graduate Coach’s top responsibility. However, the Coaching that they provide is about a lot more than that. It helps candidates identify academic and extracurricular activities they should participate in.
This makes the process extremely rewarding and enables candidates to grow as people and as professionals. Over 95% of candidates participating in this program have stated that they have felt more confident, less stressed, and have gotten better at problem solving after working with their Coach.
