Well, aside from all the usual answers, I want to become a vet because I have always had a "fix it" mentality when it came to animals. And funny enough (because I have a perceived weakness in math - other see it, I don't), I really enjoy the sciences. Ok, I could do without the chemistry and physics, but I truly enjoy biology. Together, with my interest (not love - bad word to admissions people) in animals, was born my desire to become a vet.
Blood and guts don't scare me or turn me off. Medicine itself has always held a fascination with me.
And that is why I want to become a vet. Oh yes - I really do love animals.
