Hi, hoping you can shed some light on this for me. I have heard that some vet schools will ask you (in interviews etc.) how many other schools you have applied to, and it will make you look badly in their eyes if you have applied to lots of other schools. Any truth to this? Thank you!

I honestly cannot remember if I was asked this question or not and when I was a member of the admissions panel I didn’t ask it. Depending on how you answer it could be seen as good or bad I suppose. If you have applied to 10 schools it may look like you are a little bit desperate or not sure where you want to go. If you only applied to one, I would think you were a little cocky. I’d say pick 1-3 to apply to that you know you have a good chance of getting into and that you have looked into what they offer. When asked you can say something like “3 because ____ but I really hope to get into your program because I know it offers _____”.

So true.

So true.

Heterixalus alboguttatus (Hyperoliidae) is a species of frog native to Madagascar. It is one of the larger species in the genus (females area 30-33 mm snout vent length). Easy to identify by its characteristic coloration: back blackish or dark grey, with orange spots in the shade and whitish with yellow spots (bordered with black) in the sun. Thighs, ventral surface of limbs, and hands and feet are orange. Venter is creamish [1].
This species is probably in a complex of more than one species with H. boettgeri and H. madagascariensis [2].
