Small-Animal Vet + Grad School Question
Are Vet-Schools just as expensive as a normal college? I plan to go to a school called Slippery Rock University just because of how cheap it is, however it's still very hard for my parents even though it's going to cost about 20,000 a year total. I don't think it's a great school, so i only wanted to go for up to 2 years then transfer to a better school (but better schools cost more money so even that probably won't happen).
So I was just wondering though, is Vet school going to cost the 40 or 50k that normal colleges cost? Because if so, I don't really see a point in me going to become a Vet since thats 8 years of college and 1 year is hard enough to pay for. I'm also considered an International Student to federal loans or scholarships wouldn't do anything...
To become the normal vet a person would go to, a Small-Animal Vet, is there anyways to be one without going to Vet school then?
