What are the most competitive programs?

<p>Following Cornell U, for undergrad what are the most competitive pre-vet/animal science programs? I prefer to graduate in 3yrs then continue to vet school. The harder the program, the better. Preferably, the school should also be affiliated with a vet school. Can I know the top 10 colleges?</p>

<p>^With all due respect, you should be mindful of the fact that you will be fortunate to gain admission to ANY vet school. There are only 28 accredited colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States. They are all excellent and it is very, very difficult to gain admission to any of them -- harder than it is to get into medical school. If being assured of a seat in a DVM program is your goal, then you should be looking into the undergraduate animal science programs at universities which have vet schools and which also offer their undergraduate applicants the opportunity to simultaneously apply for guaranteed admission to their vet school's DVM program. Cornell doesn't have such a program. Kansas State University, Purdue University, the University of Missouri and Mississippi State University do -- all have excellent undergraduate animal science programs and their vet schools are all top notch.</p>

<p>erm i meant what are the best undergrad schools to apply to for the animal science major if i want to go to vet school... sorry if i was unclear. any advice on the school? i am having a hard time deciding...</p>
