Welcome to the Pre-Veterinary Medicine
Webpage! Its goal is to get you started on the road to veterinary
school. This information was compiled by
Dr. Amanda Starnes
during the Summer of 1996. Some information may be out of date. This page is no longer actively maintained.
Dr. Starnes states:
"Many, many years ago, when
I was first interested in selecting a school, there were very
few accessible sources on what's expected and how one could approach
applying for and being accepted to a particular veterinary school.
I am hoping this will answer some of the most general questions
concerning the admissions process."
Dates and locations for the GRE
and VCAT are now online at ScienceNET.
