SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) While I have complete sympathy for all of you pre-vetters who are anxiously awaiting the tail end of all the admissions decisions, I'm having my own little freak out while in veterinary school. I can't decide what kind of vet to be!! And the prevet forum gets way more traffic than the vet student forum. I guess I'm just looking for support or hand-holding or something... Not really sure! I'm graduating in 2013 and definitely want to pursue post-graduate education. However, there are two or three quite divergent directions in which I could easily go, but I feel like I am having a difficult time really making a commitment to one career path over the other. I have concerns about the job market (short and long term) for all paths, and it is difficult to find accurate and current information that would allow me to be better informed! I'm also having trouble balancing concerns about lifestyle (hours worked, locations in which I could live) with the things I most like to learn about in school. I'm sure that there is also some fear about picking something and really going for it and then not matching, etc. I really wish that I had a professor who would tell me, "wow! you're really good at this! be this kind of vet!", but I've definitely never had that experience!! Seriously am considering an SDN poll to decide my future How did you guys decide to pursue the facet of vet med in which you're current involving/aiming to be involved??? Deciding to be a vet was always easy for me, and I know that there are aspects of vet med in which I DON'T want to be involved (small animal clinical practice!), but how do I turn that into channeling those feelings into what I WANT to do? I know clinics will help but there I need to choose rotations now in a logical way to help me as well!
