Recommendation Report

Audience: Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences’ Dean and Board Members

Problem: The inadequacy of Penn State’s animal bioscience/pre-veterinary program


Introduction

  • Academic Background

  • Experience


Penn State’s Animal Bioscience/Pre-Vet Program

  • Description

  • Mission

  • Prerequisites


Examples of Veterinary School Admission Requirements

  • Virginia Tech University

  • Tufts University

  • University of Pennsylvania


Cornell University

Cornell’s DVM Admissions Formula:

  • 30% Overall GPA

  • 30% GRE Scores

  • 5% Quality of Academic Program

  • 20% Animal Experience (with Letters of Evaluation)

  • 10% All Other Achievements and Letters of Evaluation

  • 5% Personal Essay


A Part of the Problem

  • Inadequate encouragement from advisors

  • Lack of meetings with advisors


The Heart of the Problem

  • The Animal Bioscience Program itself

  • Recommendation: “Because many of the industries serving animal agriculture desire practical experience in employees, students planning on seeking positions with such employers are strongly advised to gain such experience during summer employment or through an internship.”


Students’ Obligations

  • Individual responsibility

  • Risks involved


Proposed Solution

  • Better orientation programs

  • Internships, co-op, research opportunities integrated into undergraduate requirements

  • Posted job listings through the pre-vet club or CAS web page
