I'm a 4th year University of Guelph Student going through the application process for vet school for this year and had a quick question. I never noticed any major concerns with my full time semesters and prerequisite courses but you can never be too safe. So I wanted to ask what is the best way for making sure both your last 2 semesters and prerequisite courses are in fact following all the guidelines and policies to ensure that everything is admissible?
The Course Evaluation request says it should only be used by applicants that are not studying at the University of Guelph. Does this mean I shouldn't email firstname.lastname@example.org in regard to wether or not everything is acceptable to be used and there are no issues? Or can I still email them a list of the semesters and prerequisites that are planned to be used for my application?
Should I contact Deanna Lundmark? Or a different program counsellor in regards to a potential assessment?
Or do I myself just have to go with my instincts and believe that I truly don't have any outstanding issues and wait until the final process is over to determine if there were any problems?
Any help or insight is greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance! I hope everyone is excited and looking forward to the new winter semester!
I checked with Kelly Hunter, who works in OVC admissions services, the spring before I applied to make sure everything was good. You're likely fine but there are stories of people making one small oversight and losing out on an application.

Honestly, it should be pretty obvious. If you have followed the "standard" UofG structure you probably have nothing to worry about. Issues arise when you do things like take 1000 level courses after taking a 2-3000 level in the same subject area. I don't mean you can't take something with the same course code (ANSC, BIOM, etc.) but you do need to make sure they aren't the same subject. This would be pretty obvious to you if you took something and didn't need to learn a new course because you'd done it already.
