i got accepted to both these schools, as well as illinois and glasgow, and am having a hard time choosing one. i really loved minnesota when i went for my interview, but i am a california resident and tuition would be loads cheaper for me to go to davis. my interests are in wildlife/zoo and public health so the mph/dvm combined degree at minnesota sounds awesome but the cheaper tuition and the quarter system at davis is also great. i'm not considering illinois because i liked minnesota better and am going to glasgow next week to check it out before i make my final decision. part of me is just having a hard time sending in a "thanks for accepting me but i dont want to go there" to a vet school after all the years of schoolwork i've gone through to get to this point. it seems surreal. i have heard from plenty of doctors that i work with in california that a lot of the davis vets come out very book smart, but not as practical when it comes to actually working with an animal. is this just a false stigma or is it something to seriously consider? i havent met a vet that went to minnesota so i'm really left guessing. hello over analyzing. any suggestions or input from anyone about how they chose the school they are attending would be awesome! thanks guys.
