    Here's mine:
    1. Overall GPA - 3.5

    2. Science GPA - 3.7

    3. GRE scores - V610, Q710, A(5.5 - I just took it in Jan and had the weird essay format)

    3. Vet School(s) applied to:
    CSU (my first choice), OSU, WSU, ISU, UMinn, Wisconsin, Tufts

    4. Undergrad degree or grad degree, if applicable
    Political Science (hah! i'm a career changer)

    5. Vet experience
    Do you mean hours here? I have about 200 hours experience in a shelter, 300 hours in a small animal vet hospital and clinic, and some limited equine experience.

    6. Do you want to specialize?
    I'd love to, but we'll see how I feel after being in school for another four years. I'm old, see. But for track I'm leaning toward small animal, though I am not ruling out equine

    And you? :)
