Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine

<p>Hello. So, right now I am going to a CC. I am going to be in the honors program there, as well as an honors club. I also have plans to volunteer at a veterinary office and the pound.
I did pretty okay in high school. I took honors classes and AP classes and got A's in all of them.
I got a 1710 on the SAT and a 24 composite on the ACT. I was in National Honors Society, National Art Honors Society, California Scholarship Federation, Key Club (Public Relations Officer), and the president/founder of the Breast Cancer Awareness Club. I also completed the Human and Social Services Career Path. I was on the Hip Hop Team for 3 years and the debate team for almost 1 year. My cumulative GPA was a 3.3ish unweighted.</p>

<p>I plan to work hard at community college and get straight A's, participate in the honors program and honors club (as I said). I also plan to start a pre-vet club at my CC.</p>

<p>I plan to transfer to UC Berkeley and major in integrative biology.
My questions are this:</p>

<p>Do you think, with all of that said, that I have a shot to get into Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine for Graduate school? Is UC Berkeley prestigious enough to get in there?</p>

<p>What else should I do to increase my chances of getting in?</p>

<p>It's incredibly early to say. You haven't yet even started CC and you're already assuming you'll get straight A's there and then be able to eventually transfer to UC Berkeley. Getting straight A's is easier said than done; once you actually experience college work then ask.</p>

<p>Also are you looking at becoming a veterinarian or entering a PhD program? They're entirely different admissions processes. Also your high school stats don't really matter anymore once you get into college.</p>

<p>I'm going to get my DVM. You are right, it is easier said than done. I am pretty determined! Thank you so much for the advice. :)</p>
