    RVC c/o 2024

I would love to apply to RVC this round, but noticed that on their website they say 4 semester units = 7 quarter units, which is different from the usual (4 sem = 6 qtr). I can really try to stretch some of the courses I've taken (I have completed 4...

    Which Vet Schools Weight Grades Heavily?

    I applied to my IS vet school and was denied. They do not take GPA into account aside from having above a 3.0 GPA. I have veterinary and animal experience, but I guess not enough. I have a high GPA, and in the next cycle would like to apply to vet schools that are more likely to accept me. What...

    Hello, I am a first year veterinary student who just finished having a meltdown about, surprise! Vet school. I freaked out over the fact that it’s taking me so long to finish handwriting my lectures, while also studying for my upcoming exams. I’ve been hand writing lectures my whole academic...

    Do grades matter during application year?

    I have already sent in my applications for veterinary school, but I am still taking pre-requisites (Biochemistry, Genetics now and Physiology and Microbiology in the spring).

    Grad School Before Vet School: What Are You Majoring In?

    Hi all, I still have a year and a half left of undergrad (getting a B.S. in Zoology) and my GPA has been hovering right around 3.00 for the past year (mainly because I suck at math and physics), so I am strongly considering getting a masters or PhD in something to bump my GPA up before...

    Hi all, 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!

    Is it hard to find a job out of vet medical school?

    I work with a 94 year old physician who was devastated today when I told him I was pursuing veterinary medicine instead of human medicine. He then went off to tell me that it was extremely difficult to find a job in small animal practice and that the vast majority end up in a laboratory setting...

But, the rejection from OSU, my IS, really, really, really, bummed me out to say the least. I didn't even get so far as to have an interview... I wanted to...
