Hi, I would like everyone's input on my chances of getting into Vet School as an older, non-traditional student. Here's my background: The positive things: BS Degree in Animal Science from Univ. of Wisconsin (GPA=3.6/honors) Some graduate work at Ohio State University in Animal Digestive Physiology (GPA=4.0) GRE of 1200 Taught Equestrian Studies/Animal Science at a Prep School and College for 5 years total Strong communication skills (I've written 20 computer books and have taught extensively in business settings) Have worked for a small animal vet and have had many years of hands-on experience with horses (foaling out mares, training, etc.). I've also written articles for horse magazines and have a small sporthorse farm. Most of all, a very strong interest in vet work for many, many years. Now for the downside: As you can imagine, all this experience has taken years to acquire. I've always been extremely interested in vet work, but have never had a life situation that would allow me go to vet school. However, my daughters are going to college themselves and I would love to pursue my dream of becoming a vet. Is it impossible to be accepted to vet school at this point in my life? I will be 50 at time of application! Even though I'm a strong type-A person in very good health (and am quite focused) I don't honestly know if vet schools will be open at all to an older student. Thoughts? I would really like a realistic idea of my chances.
