    PreVet students, what's your class/work/experience hours schedule?

    I'm starting pre vet in the spring. A huge concern of mine is balancing work, school and getting the experience hours I need to apply to vet school. I'm nervous because it's hard to find online science classes due to labs (which are time consuming and makes it harder to work), be able to work to...

    How many hours of experience did you have on your application for vet school?

    I currently only have 1,000 for animal experience (pet care technician for a pet hotel) and 20 from shadowing a small animal practice hospital. I know I need more hours, considering I'm about to enter college. Would my 1,000 hours of animal experience count even though it isn't veterinary...

    Human vs Animal vs Comparative A&P

    I was planning to take human A&P before taking the DAT (next cycle), but all my pre-dental peers talk about taking comparative versus regular animal physiology/vertebrate anatomy, so I can't really get much of a comparison among the three. Granted, since I'm not a biology major, human A&P is...
