    1. What do you come to? Sorry, can't beat LVT2DVM's answer..... I guess us ole fogies think alike :D


    2. Where is your natural habitat? Anywhere near the ocean. Spent 14 years in the LowCountry on Hilton Head Island, SC. Originally from Northern VA.

    3. Undergrad smarts, where are/did you get them? No smarts, but I got my degree at Seton Hill College in Greensburg, PA (near Latrobe...think Rolling Rock beer). All women's college at the time, now it's Seton Hill University and they have menfolk with a football team and everything!

    4. Major, minor, not recognized major/minor ( although your petitioning the dean and he just won't let (insert other word i.e. boys) be a major)? Biology

    5. Post bacc smarts? Program/school? Nope

    6. How many times have you applied (don't be disheartened if you want it bad enough it will come! ) ? This would be my first :scared:

    7. Where did you apply this cycle? All international

    8. What's your top choice..? Any international :D

    9. What do you do to fund applying to/waiting for vet school? I am the Dir of Ops for a start up company that funds life insurance premiums for high net worth individuals. Going on my 5th year. Credit crisis is NOT helping :mad:

    10. In 2 sentences sum up why you deserve to be the best vet you can be... ? Don't necessarily deserve it, but it's time to give back to society. I plan on donating a significant amount of my time/experience.

    11. What's your dream vet job? What types, own your own practice... or work for someone? Equine or Mixed Animal vet in the rolling countryside. Own practice.

    12. Married? Children? Not anymore. No. And where did all the men go in vet school????

    13. I'm sure you have at least 1 pet! Tell me about them! Ahhhh, my boys. Harley - 3.5 yr old Yorkie and Mugsy 2.5 yo Yorkie. Harley is my snuggle bunny, handsome boy who cannot be away from me for more than 2 minutes. Mugger is a mess - he is athletic, a troublemaker and makes me laugh all the time. Love my boys :D

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is!? I think at my age being: single, childless, a fighter and hoping to be a full time student in the Fall should definitely cover it :wow:

    20. Have you ever been addicted to video games/forums? Ummm yeah, pretty much. It all started with Atari 2600 (like, the FIRST one ever made :eek:) and hasn't stopped.

    21. Is this your only forum your a member of?? Yes, and thank goodness!! I am an SDN Addict. I mean it IS 1045 pm here on the left coast on New Year's Eve and did I mention I'm single? :poke:

    I was going to do this earlier... And it wasn't 2009 when I started, but here goes:

    1. What do you come to? Andrea.

    2. Where is your natural habitat? Iowa.

    3. Undergrad smarts, where are/did you get them? Iowa State.

    4. Major, minor, not recognized major/minor? Zoology with a minor in animal ecology.

    5. Post bacc smarts? Program/school? N/A

    6. How many times have you applied? This is my second round.

    7. Where did you apply this cycle? Only Iowa State, for a variety of reasons. We'll see if this was a wise decision.

    8. What's your top choice...? Iowa State.

    9. What do you do to fund applying to/waiting for vet school? Work at a small animal clinic.

    10. In 2 sentences sum up why you deserve to be the best vet you can be...? Because, no matter how many alternative plans I consider, this is the only path that I can truly see myself following. And when the feeling of "oh my god, I want to do this so badly" hits as you're driving home from working at the emergency clinic at 2 am or helping restrain a bald eagle or when you're terrified because you're the only one there to help the vet perform an emergency c-section... you kinda know you're on the right path.

    11. What's your dream vet job? What types, own your own practice... or work for someone? Working in a zoo. Working internationally, preferably focusing on Africa. Maybe something to do with pathology/infectious diseases/that sort of thing.

    12. Married? Children? No and no. Eventually, though.

    13. I'm sure you have at least 1 pet! Tell me about them! Abby (GSD/lab), Vanyel (GSD/Siberian husky), and Obi (seal point Siamese mix), Leaper (tuxedo Siamese mix), and Annie (GSD/we've decided on golden retriever).

    14. Where did your screen name come from? Basically--I'm interested in cryptozoology, the cuitlamiztli* grabbed my attention years ago, and it's been my online handle ever since.

    *The Aztec cuitlamiztli, or onza, was believed to be a distinct species of wild cat at the time of the conquistadores. They were consistently reported to be smaller, longer, and slenderer than pumas with long, thin legs; longer, more wolf-like ears; and faint striping along the insides of their forelegs. The current 'official' consensus, based on the genetic analysis of a single specimen, is that it is either a subspecies or morph of the puma.

    15. Extracurriculars? I'm currently a docent at my local zoo... that's about it at the moment.

    16. Any interesting hobbies? I'm an artist on the side (which is why it wasn't '09 when I started... I got the urge to finish a picture). I've also been known to do massive--think like 16 traits--punnet squares for fun.

    17. Any totally weird habits/skills/um.... anything?? Hmm... I hardly ever take pictures of people (drives my sister, a photography student, nuts).

    18. Any places that strike your fancy that you haven't been to you?? The Kalahari desert/Okavango delta. Kenya. South Africa. The caribbean side of Costa Rica. Belize. Brazil. Etc... etc...

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is!? Um... I don't know if it's unique, but I can't focus on blue LED lights--they're just an obnoxious blur that hurts my eyes.

    20. Have you ever been addicted to video games/forums? Video games, definitely. I'm not sure that my checking SDN a lot is quite an addiction yet...

    21. Is this the only forum you're a member of?? Forum, yes. Online community, no.

    10. In 2 sentences sum up why you deserve to be the best vet you can be... :thumbup: ? It might be lame, but now that I've been accepted and I see everyone still waiting to hear, I'm most excited about helping other people get in to vet school once I'm practicing...so...I'm nice? Maybe?

    11. What's your dream vet job? What types, own your own practice... or work for someone? Hmm...Well, I'm having a private/public sector crisis - but if I do private sector, definitely equine - either a rural practice or a sport horse specialty...is it odd that I know better what I want to do in 20+ years? I would LOVE to wind up teaching after a long stint out in the field.

    13. I'm sure you have at least 1 pet! Tell me about them!:rolleyes: For the warm-bloodeds: two dogs - Ernie (springer/beagle mix) and Sirius (border collie mix). Cold-bloodeds: Disco Bandit (radix garter snake) and Winchester (african clawed frog)

    14. :cool: Where did your screen name come from? DVM...or...Bust...Funny story - one of my friends who's a premed on the pre-allo forums tracked me down and she was like 'What's Morbust? And what does DV stand for?"

    15. Extracurriculars? Equestrian team

    16. Any interesting hobbies? Geocaching!

    17. Any totally wierd habits/skills/um.... anything? :eek: ? Uh...

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is! :love: ? I speak Spanish, Portuguese and Mandarin...

    20. Have you ever been addicted :oops: to video games/forums? Yes to both. (Luckily, I get addicted to video games like Prince of Persia or God of War so after a 24 hour straight marathon I'm able to shut them off 'cause they're beaten)

    21. :sleep: Is this your only forum your a member of?? No.

    5. Post bacc smarts? Program/school? NA

    6. How many times have you applied (don't be disheartened if you want it bad enough it will come! ) ? Still working on my classes for my first application

    11. What's your dream vet job? What types, own your own practice... or work for someone? No private practice. I'd like to work for the govt agencies or some other forum of public service (public health, food animal). Second choice is possibly emergency or surgical medicine.

    12. Married? Children? Married. No kids yet (see controversial family thread below) :D

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is! :love: ? I'm probably the only person here who has worked for lawyers for the better part of the last decade. I worked in corporate law for many years, so I've worked with everything from the small clients with one or two local businesses to the multi-billion dollar corporations. I think that definitely gives me perspective when dealing with people in any field.

    20. Have you ever been addicted :oops: to video games/forums? I've been addicted to one particular forum for 7 years now (not this one)

    21. :sleep: Is this your only forum your a member of?? Nope! I need to get away from the computer.

    1. What do you come to? I come to Lisa

    2. Where is your natural habitat? Wisconsin my whole life, started in Madison, moved to Milwaukee for college

    3. Undergrad smarts, where are/did you get them? University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee

    4. Major, minor, not recognized major/minor ( :idea: although your petitioning the dean and he just won't let (insert other word i.e. boys) be a major)? Biology with a chemistry minor (graduating in may)

    5. Post bacc smarts? Program/school? nope

    6. How many times have you applied (don't be disheartened if you want it bad enough it will come! ) ? this is the first

    7. Where did you apply this cycle? Madison, Minnesota, Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Purdue, Michigan, Colorado

    8. What's your top choice.. :xf:? Madison of course, the best part of Wisconsin

    9. What do you do to fund applying to/waiting for vet school? working a bit at a small animal clinic, student loans, a little help from my parents and family, more student loans, and student loans

    10. In 2 sentences sum up why you deserve to be the best vet you can be... :thumbup: ? I hope anyone who is accepted into vet school truly deserves to be there. Hopefully I'll be one of them.

    11. What's your dream vet job? What types, own your own practice... or work for someone? I'm not completely sure what my dream vet job is, I'm open to learning everything there is to know if vet school and figuring it out when I get there. I've thought about owning my own practice, but from what I've seen I think it would be less stressful to co-own a practice with another DVM. Owning a practice to me seems like you need a business degree before you are fully prepared for all the financial and legal responsibility associated with it. I guess I really don't know yet what I want to do.

    12. Married? Children? not married yet, no children yet, but plan on having them. This also plays a part for my decisions about owning my own practice as stated above. How on earth would I own a veterinary practice while raising children??? lets just get into vet school first.

    16. Any interesting hobbies? yoga, running when its not freezing, gardening when its not freezing, reading books when it is freezing

    17. Any totally wierd habits/skills/um.... anything? :eek: ? not today

    18. Any places that strike your fancy that you haven't been to you?? I've never been out of the country.... but I'd like to travel somewhere that its not freezing (because Wisconsin is freezing right now)

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is! :love: ? um, I don't know

    20. Have you ever been addicted :oops: to video games/forums? I've never been really good at video games... but yes, I am becoming addicted to SDN

    Hit the quote button. Erase the beginning and end of the message where "quote" is in brackets. Each item on the list will have a "b" in brackets that tell it to be bold. Type outside the brackets.

    Thanks Trocar - I had always cut and pasted using the little quote icon in the toolbar (which doesn't save formatting) and never noticed the quote button before. Duh!

    1. What are you called on a regular basis that gets your attention
    ?
    Samantha

    2. Where is your natural habitat?
    Nova Scotia, Canada

    3. Undergrad smarts, where are/did you get them?
    Currently attending a small university in Nova Scotia.

    4. Major, minor, not recognized major/minor?
    Major is biology, minor is psychology.

    5. Post bacc smarts? Program/school?
    N/A.

    6. How many times have you applied?
    No where yet.

    7. Where did you apply this cycle?
    No where.

    8. What's your top choice.. :xf:?
    Can't decide if I'd rather go to AVC in PEI or one of the Caribbean vet schools.

    9. What do you do to fund applying to/waiting for vet school?
    I have a part-time job and I work when I'm home for the summer... but it's not helping out a whole heck of a lot.

    10. In 2 sentences sum up why you deserve to be the best vet you can be... :thumbup: ?
    I want a job where I can make a difference, and in my heart I believe that working with animals is the best way that I can do that.

    11. What's your dream vet job? What types, own your own practice... or work for someone?
    I'm currently interrested in small animal and exotic. I want to work in a practice with other doctors and/or do shelter work, but this could change!

    12. Married? Children?
    No and no!

    13. I'm sure you have at least 1 pet! Tell me about them!:rolleyes:
    Susie: black and white shorthaired cat. When my family bought our house, we adopted her from the old owner of the house. She was a stray that was adopted from the shelter. She's supposed to be 9, but she's probably older. Her favorite things to do are play with crinkle balls, follow me to bed, jump up on the window ledge, beg for food, and clean herself.

    Thor: my crowntail betta. He's here in my dorm room, chilling in his 2 gallon tank. He likes to get mad at people, chill out on his silk plants, and get aggressive with his food.


    14. :cool: Where did your screen name come from?
    I made it up.

    15. Extracurriculars?
    Right now, biology society and youth bowling. It's incredibly hard for me to get animal experience here or home. Last summer I walked dogs at the animal shelter, and it's about time that I start calling clinics and bugging them again.

    16. Any interesting hobbies?
    I LOVE to bowl, and I have an interrest in urban exploration! Last semester I had to take an environmental biology course and I'm taking a field course this summer. I get to spend three weeks on an uninhabited island and learn about the plant and animal life there. I am so excited. Oh yeah, I'm into fish keeping! I know tons about how to humanely cycle and stock smaller aquariums. I like piercings too :p

    17. Any totally wierd habits/skills/um.... anything? :eek: ?
    I can clover my tongue. I currently work at Dairy Queen as a cake lady!

    18. Any places that strike your fancy that you haven't been to you??
    Alaska! I blame it on the movie "Alaska".

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is! :love: ?
    I didn't go to the agriculture college like all of the other pre-vets. I went my own way, and have no regrets.

    20. Have you ever been addicted :oops: to video games/forums?
    I spent all Christmas break playing Roller Coaster Tycoon... and I will never ever give up my NES!

    21. :sleep: Is this your only forum your a member of??
    Not at all. Aquahobby, Body Modification Forum, and Veggieboards are the ones I check most often if I get a chance.

    1. What are you called on a regular basis that gets your attention?
    Rhiannon. It's a mouthful. Fleetwood Mac, anyone?

    2. Where is your natural habitat?
    Born and raised in Oklahoma, but I know I won't stay here forever. I could probably live anywhere, though I'd like to live a bit closer to an ocean...

    3. Undergrad smarts, where are/did you get them?
    OSU. That's Oklahoma State University, mind you.

    4. Major, minor, not recognized major/minor?
    Was animal science, switched to zoology. Considered a minor in Japanese but decided not to overload myself...

    5. Post bacc smarts? Program/school?
    Not yet, but if I don't get in next time, it's certainly possible.

    6. How many times have you applied?
    Once last year, didn't this year. Will try again next year. (Or, later this year, since it's 2009 now!)

    7. Where did you apply this cycle?
    Didn't, but applied to just Oklahoma last year.

    8. What's your top choice.. :xf:?
    Well, Oklahoma of course. I'm settled here, and the price is right, and I already know lots of the professors and clinicians...

    9. What do you do to fund applying to/waiting for vet school?
    I work about 30 hrs/week at a local small animal practice. But, the parentals will pay my application fees with the understanding that all tuition once I get in will be loans that I'll have to repay. Which will be fine... my hub's networking job is nothing to sneeze at.

    10. In 2 sentences sum up why you deserve to be the best vet you can be... :thumbup: ?
    Nothing on this earth could be as all-consuming as my desire to attend vet school and spend every day of my life doing something I love so dearly. This leads me to believe that I would probably be good at it, too.

    11. What's your dream vet job? What types, own your own practice... or work for someone?
    I'd like to specialize in some area of feline medicine, or become a board certified clinical pathologist. Given the latter, I would love to teach from that position.

    12. Married? Children?
    Yes and no, though the latter is weighing on my mind more heavily than it probably should. I can't even explain why - doubt I could blame it on some biological clock. Who knows.

    13. I'm sure you have at least 1 pet! Tell me about them!:rolleyes:
    I have a friend in vet school that does not have pets, and has not had any all through undergrad. Isn't that just strange?
    I have the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Chloe, that is featured in my icon of course. Also Slater a.k.a. Tater Tot the Turkish Angora, and Vesper the DLH. Both are all black. And hard to tell apart if you've just met them. Slater is my baby boy, and Vesper is... insane? I'm sure there's no one on this planet that could possibly love an tolerate that flatulent, loud, bothersome cat as much as husband and I do.

    14. :cool: Where did your screen name come from?
    The mind of a fourth grader. It was mostly ramdom but it has grown on me over the years... it has twelve letters, it has a ring to it.

    15. Extracurriculars?
    I still play the French Horn sometimes, though it's been sitting, neglected, in the back of my closet for most of this semester. I also enjoy reading, when there's time.

    16. Any interesting hobbies?
    I think I answered that above. I'm not into any sports or involved in any clubs, so hobbies are all I really have.

    17. Any totally weird habits/skills/um.... anything? :eek: ?
    Err... no. I have a good memory, but its incredibly sporadic and not that helpful in practical ways, like studying...

    18. Any places that strike your fancy that you haven't been to you??
    Way too many places to list. I hope to travel a lot someday, but with my family.

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is! :love: ?
    Um... I'm insane? I can play cribbage, bridge, canasta, pinochle, sheepshead, gin, hearts, spades... crazy eights? You name it.

    20. Have you ever been addicted :oops: to video games/forums?
    Never had any video games growing up so I really don't have much to do with them now. I've had a Neopets account for nearly nine years... had a brief and uneventful fling with Furcadia... and used to be one of those crazy, top-ranking people in Yahoo! Games for Gin (Rummy). I do love card games.

    21. :sleep: Is this your only forum your a member of??
    Yep. I try to limit myself.

    What?! Someone here whom is actually from CT and UCONN?! Well, since my major was animal science, I probably don't know you and you probably dont know me! UCONN is a very big place! Well I certainly know one of the reasons why your rooting for Iowa. Wouldn't it be lovely to get one of those contract seats?!

    10. In 2 sentences sum up why you deserve to be the best vet you can be... ? I deserve to be the best vet I can be because I've gotten a certain sense of satisfaction from the experiences I have had in this field that far surpasses any other accomplishment I have had to date.

    19. Is there anything interesting that makes you unique... of course there is! ? I ran 1500 miles away to go to an undergrad that doesn't have a vet school when I live 25 minutes from ISU. I guess I needed a big change of scenery. And the relief of not going to school with all my competition for application. I'm also an only child.

    20. Have you ever been addicted to video games/forums? I wouldn't use the word addicted.

    21. Is this your only forum your a member of?? Nope, I also belong to SaxOnTheWeb.net where the nice saxophone people answer my stupid n00b questions regarding my tenor sax hobby
