HOW TO BECOME A VERTERINARIAN: Education and Career Roadmap

The VMCAS application moved to an updated, new format in 2016 as the AAVMC migrated the application service to a new platform called CAS3.0. With this upgrade, there were significant changes to not only the application format itself, but also to dates, deadlines, features and more.
