Hey I'm not sure how many vets are on this site. Maybe there are some people who are currently studying to become veterinarians. That is what I plan to do. I have always wanted to be a vet. Now that it's almost time for me to choose a college for my undergrad education, I don't want to make the wrong decision. I want the best possible education to prepare me for vet school.
Here's my dilemma:
1) Is it better for me to go to the college in which I will graduate with the least amount of debt.(considering vet school is very expensive.)
2) Is it better for me to go the Ivy League root - Penn. Penn has a vet school. They have the Ryan Veterinary Hospital right on campus. Easy access for me to volunteer or even get an internship while I'm an undergrad student.
Should I go the extra mile and challenge myself at a school like Penn for undergrad? Is it worth it? Or would I be better off going to a smaller liberal arts college that offers me a pretty scholarship?
Also, if there are any vets out there, can you please give me some advice about how you got started. I currently work at a kennel on weekends. I just need some advice on how to get my foot in the door in the field of veterinary medicine.
