Eight of the 30 US veterinary schools state on their web sites that they no longer require the Graduate Record Examination (GRE): Michigan State University, Midwestern University, Mississippi State University, The Ohio State University, Purdue University, Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Florida and Iowa State University. As we approach the application cycle for 2019, other schools could join this group, schools in this group could go ‘back’ to requiring the GRE, so please check web sites of any school you plan to apply to on a regular basis.
