It is my dream to go to Cornell Vet school ( or UC Davis) and I would appreciate any advice on getting there. I am fully committed and will be attending UCLA as a biochemistry major in the fall. A bit about myself:
I currently work at a vet clinic, helping in the kennels and shadowing. Even though I got a late start with the whole required animal experience ( this is my first time working in an actual vet clinic) I plan to continue throughout college at a vet clinic closer to UCLA (I am from the Bay Area).
In high school, I maintained a 4.0, took my school's hardest AP and honors classes and also earned my school's science award.
I participated in an internship at UCSF working in a diabetes center lab.
During college I plan to join the swim club/ team, possibly be involved in student government, join the honors program, a fraternity ( I will leave it if my grades drop, but UCLA frats are very good for networking) and a science related club. I also plan to volunteer/work year round at a vet clinic or hospital.
This is my dream and passion. I've been a vegetarian since I was 9, and am now a vegan. I've also owned every pet from rabbits and chinchillas, to a variety of birds, to cats and dogs. Any help will be appreciated.
