Hello all! I hope everyone is safe and doing ok! I have a question but first I need to give a bit of background:
I went through some things (COVID related things that ended up spiraling out of control, losses happening left and right) and ended up withdrawing in the ninth week of the quarter...
Just like the title says - I am not technically a non-traditional student, but because I decided on vet school late (after my undergrad) I am seriously lacking in a lot of the areas needed for competitive applicants. I did my undergrad in the UK where your courses are predetermined, so I'm...

Hey Everyone! I haven't seen a thread for Edinburgh's vet school so I decided to start it here! I'm personally an American student who applied to the GEP 4 year program and got an interview so I was very interested in hearing from others about this as well--especially does anyone know how many...
So, I recently (as in last semester), decided that I wanted to give pre-vet a second shot. I was originally pre-med, then pre-vet, then gave up both and just decided to graduate as quickly as possible because of the circumstances at the time (I was working 3 jobs to help my family, and suffering...

How do I...

I am currently finishing up my non-science undergrad at Texas A&M. I have decided that I want to pursue vet school in the future but have been told once I graduate that it will be difficult to take the genetics and biochemistry courses. I heave seen on here that many people go to...
Does anyone know how vet schools look at animal and vet experience? I have over 1500 hours working with various wildlife rehabilitation centres supervised by RVTs. According to the definition of veterinary experience, none of these hours would count as vet hours because there was no supervising...

I live in a really small border town, and there are no vet clinics. For volunteer work, I applied in a vet clinic in the nearest town. However, I come from México, I live really close by, and I go there very often. In the border town of México, there is a zoo, a variety of vet clinics, and many...

Hi! I'm a rising senior (and new to this site so I apologize if I'm being annoying) and I would really love advice. I want to be a veterinarian, so I was planning on majoring in Animal Science (does it matter if I major in Zoology or Animal Science?) but my mom wants me to major in Biology to...

I'm kind of new to posting in these forums, so I'm sorry if this question has been discussed before. I'm currently about to complete my first year of undergrad as a pre vet major, and I'm trying to get as much experience as I can before vet school. I have this amazing opportunity...
Hey guys! I'm applying this upcoming cycle and looking to take Animal Nutrition for NCSU's prereq requirements. I was wondering if anyone had advice on which school to the take the course online through (and cheapest?). I've heard good things about Purdue, but also seems to be on the pricier...
I wanted to make a separate thread on the VC HPSP because I get so many questions about it.
So here is the blurb from the official 2017 program guide-

I went to SUNY Oswego for 2 years as a Zoology major, and I have transferred to SUNY Stony Brook in Fall 2016. Since Stony Brook only accepts C and higher, my organic chemistry 2 grade did not get transferred over. So, as a result, I am retaking it and struggling very badly. Here are my chem...
I am in my 4th year of undergrad and I'm still Pre Vet. When ilI tell people that I am still Pre Vet, they have a questionable look in their eyes, like I shouldn't be pre vet. Why? Well, I've retaken the entire gen chem series, have recieved mediocre grades in major classes, and I am...
Hi guys! :):):) I know this question gets asked a lot here but I still need some help getting vet experience. I'm a little late to the party to the whole thing (college sophomore) so I am quite eager to get those vet experience hours.
I have been following the advice in the old threads on this...
I saw a thread like this in another part of SDN and could not help but think how relevant it is to those of us that are pre-veterinary. Because many of us are playing the waiting game right now, and we need something to lighten our spirits I'll go first.
A nice girl in my o chem lab last year...
I recently decided I want to start pre-veterinary medicine in January. I looked at qualifications to be accepted into vet school and hours/experience was one of them. I recently got a job at a pet hotel/daycare/spa center. What makes me nervous is, it's not a vet setting. This is my first job...

Im a Minnesota girl looking for vet schools to apply to next year.
I'm looking into the University of Saskatchewan. It is out of the states, yes, but it is SO cheap! I realize Canadian universities are all cheap, but if the largest burden of vet school is its economic constraints, why...
Hi!! I'm still in high school, but I know I want to pursue a career with animals. I'm not sure if I should become a zoo veterinarian or a wildlife biologist. I know they're both very different careers, and since I was little I've wanted to be a zoo vet, however now that I'm getting older I want...
