My niece is a vet. She attended University of Delaware undergrad and UPenn for Vet school. She did interships with vets, worked at the zoo, travelled to Central America to work with animals, did research while at college. She also worked with a vet for several years, since she was in HS all through college. She is a very driven young lady. She had a very impressive resume, and good grades as an undergrad. She was accepted to at least 3 vet schools right out of undergrad. When she received her acceptance to Penn, she withdrew all other applications, since it was her #1 choice.
