Hey Everyone, Im 26, have a liberal arts degree from my state school, have been working for the past 4 years since graduation, and am planning on leaving my current career to pursue a career as a veterinarian. Ive been researching vet schools feverishly ever since I made this decision, but Im looking for advice . Im in MA, and UMass Amherst has an animal science program. Im thinking of trying a somewhat traditional route and staying in MA, going back to UMass, and applying to Tufs afterwards. I know Tufts is a great school, but I also hear its one of the most expensive. Im also considering moving home, applying for a job at my vets clinic and taking classes in the city .. And then, Im also thinking about moving to another state with a vet school, working part time, and trying to declare residency in that state (such as Florida, Georgia or North Carolina). Obviously, these are personal choices, but Im curious what your experience has been applying to schools outside your state (and how expensive those schools are). Id hope that if I declared residency in one of these states, obviously worked extra hard, and tried to get into that school, it would be less expensive down the line (in comparison to remaining in MA and applying to Tufts). Any advice on how to move forward would be most appreciated. Thanks so much!
