online veterinary school rankings

What rankings are available for veterinary schools in the United States? I know US News has one online, but you have to subscribe to access it.

    The top three in the rankings are usually Cornell University, Colorado State University and the University of Pennsylvania. I wouldn't waste a lot of time on vet school rankings. With only 28 vet schools in the U.S., you will be fortunate to get into ANY of them -- competition is fierce. Your best bet is to focus on getting admitted to the vet school in your home state (if there is one). If not, focus on getting admitted to any vet school in another state with which your home state has a contract for seats.

    I'm quite aware of that gbesq, but thank you anyway. Unfortunately it doesn't really help me because I may be moving to Pennsylvania (again), and since I go to a private university, I do not know how much state contracts will help me. Maybe you could give some insight into that regard. My top choices are University of Pennsylvania, UC-Davis, and Illinois, especially because they have wildlife veterinary medicine training. I am an Illinois resident, so naturally UIUC is the logical choice.

    The point is, this inquiry was mainly out of curiosity, and thats pretty much it.

    P.S. I'm going to be taking a gap year after university anyway, I'm taking advice from my friend Steven at UVA.
