I know some threads have been made but I still don't have a good answer for it. I know people have targeted getting a couple thousands in veterinary experience, but what is considered competitive for research? Right now I'm targeting more veterinary experience bc it's what I lack.. I'm currently working at a diagnostic lab, vet clinic, and oncology department at my university. For research.. I'm going to try and get a few hundred hours at a lab in the vet school where clinical dogs are used for amputation and fracture surgeries for an orthopedic surgeon. I know the focus is on quality and not quantity but I feel with success it take a balance of both. Would that be considered good in adcom eyes? I really like it but not sure if doing another research experience would be considered ideal? Thanks for any help.
