SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Well with the new application cycle opening in roughly a month, I feel like it's time for me to come out of the woodwork and stop lurking. I am a 28 year old non-trad, graduated with a Business degree with a Finance concentration in 2006 and worked for 5 years in "corporate America." When I realized that I wasn't happy with that life I decided that maybe I should reconsider going back to my childhood goal of becoming a veterinarian. I worked for about a year and a half while taking classes at night after work. Then in December I quit my very well paying job(with wonderful benefits) to do an internship/shadow with an ambulatory equine vet. I have a month left doing this and it has been amazing; hard work but wonderful. After this I am even more driven to pursue vet school. I have two horses and would ultimately like to have my own private equine ambulatory practice. This will be my first application cycle so I am some what terrified, but looking forward to experiencing this with everyone here!
