So, you want to be an veterinarian? Vet 2

Veterinarians tend to enjoy working with animals, people, and science. While animals are the patients, the owners are great sources of information and require a good connection with their veterinarian.  Vets give to your patients through a caring and empathetic personality, as well as education and knowledge of all types of animals.  To become a vet, you must graduate from veterinary school.


Here you will find important information on requirements, entrance exams, and extra experiences needed to gain entry into veterinary school. As you explore, keep in mind:

  • "Pre-vet" is not a major. You major in any area of personal interest you would like to obtain a degree in.  Being "pre-vet" is something you personally state and it signifies the extra work you will put forth on your way to veterinary school.
  • While a majority of our students who are "pre-vet" are Science majors. This is not your only option. Veterinary schools accept a variety of majors. You can major in whatever you are interested in as long as you complete the appropriate requirements.
  • While vet schools list requirements, these are only the basics needed. The more you push yourself (while maintaining a high GPA), the better it will be for your application.
