It’s common that I get questions related to learning to be a veterinarian, and I’ve clarified these questions several times over the last few years. Earlier this month Maggie emailed me some questions, and it’s used me a while to access answering them. I actually debated about whether or not to answer since I’ve done this before but made a decision to so that I possibly could put most of the pertinent advice all in the same post. So unless I get something completely different, this is similar to the last time I’ll go through this, referring people back to this and other posts instead. I come from a family with a solid medical background.
My parents are both doctors, as well as extended family members, so I have always been comfortable talking about and viewing medical procedures. I really like science but I am not strong in Math. I’ve always loved pets and many family friends urged my interest to become a vet.
I visited the University of Virginia with the purpose to be pre-health and required some pre-health classes. I did well in inorganic chemistry but got trouble with Organic Chemistry. I made the decision that I will branch out from science also and followed a pastime in marketing. Therefore, I adopted this interest and got a masters in business.
Throughout all of my studies I continue to volunteer at the SPCA. I am now 25 and I work in marketing for a leading consumer products company. I love what I do but do not see myself doing it long term and I am highly considering heading back to school to become a veterinarian.

5 more years of school, lots of student loans. I would appreciate your advice on the next! 1. I am assured that I could prosper in the technology courses, but I would have to do a postal pre-health program. Do you know anything about post-bac programs for pre-vet? Honestly, you might not have to do any post-bac program.
Your real major is completely irrelevant to entrance into veterinary school; all that matters is that you have the required courses for entrance. I’ve known people who have levels in marketing, English, publishing, computers, and many other non-biology degrees who’ve become vets. Also, there are no pre-set post-baccalaureate programs out there that I know of specifically, because admittance into vet school doesn’t want it. In fact, most pre-vet programs in schools are simply just the offices finding the required courses for vet college and organizing them into a semi-formal program.
There is no such thing as a pre-vet major or degree. If you’re lacking any courses, all you have to consider those classes and don’t even need to get a qualification. 2. Once I really do a post-bac program, what applications are essential for vet school? There are no real general requirements for all vet schools, and all of them may necessitate slightly various things.
You need to contact the admissions office of every college you are thinking about to discover what they need, and plan accordingly then. You do not necessarily need to take any time off depending on whenever your classes are done, as they are more thinking about your required classes than your current GPA. 3. Veterinary college is four years, exactly like medical college right?
