I am a sophomore in college and am on track to graduate with a degree in three years. That means I would be applying to vet school this summer. I am in a pre-acceptance program so I don't have to worry about getting in but I am worried about the course load I will need to hold next year to make sure I can graduate in three years and still keep my GPA up. Recently I have been on the fence about doing three or four years. I think that I could keep my GPA if I worked really hard but I am now thinking about staying for the normal four years. Would the tradeoff of going four years and spreading out my harder classes be worth going the extra year or should I just push through with three? If I ended up staying for a fourth year I also would be taking more classes that would help better prepare me for the classes I will be taking in vet school that I wouldn't have time for if I just did three years.
