    Hi, this is my first post... please be gentle. Anyone know if there is an internationl ranking of veterinary schools? i have seen tons of US vet rankings, and international undergrad rankings, but no international vet school rankings. Also, does anyone have any information on the university of guelph thats not on their website? i am waitlisted at a few schools not but no official acceptances anywhere except Guelph. Everyone i met at the school seemed nice and the students i talked with had nothing but good things to say and i enjoyed the city. but i am still unsure. any information would help me. Thanks
    Nick

    You will find much discussion on this forum about ranking in general. Most students find that ranking is NOT useful. You have to consider who ranked the schools and how? Most of it is based on research output or something like that. Not exactly applicable to us all. You should rank the schools by your own methods. Where can you live? Which place seems like a place you want to be for 4-5 years? Tuition, cost of living, elective type curriculum vs. non-specialized curriculum - it is all up to your individual likes/dislikes.

    I think US World Report did this ranking. Eh I can't remember. Anyway, its the "bible" of rankings. The only ones I remember are:

    1. Cornell University

    2. ?

    3. University of Pennsylvania

    4. North Carolina State

    5. Texas A&M


    I agree with birdvet. I don't find the rankings to be very useful (or true).

    UC Davis was in the top 5 and then got placed on provisional accreditation status for out of date facilities.
