  • Pre-vet students must take the same general prerequisites as pre-med students

  • Two semesters of:

    • General Chemistry

    • Organic Chemistry

    • Biochemistry

    • Cellular Biology

    • Animal Nutrition

    • Calculus or statistics

    • Humanities and social sciences

Shadowing

Shadowing

  • Experience is absolutely necessary for veterinary school applications

  • You need to spend time in a veterinary hospital or similar setting in the presence of a veterinarian

  • 400 hours is a good number to aim for as a minimum

  • Average number of hours for admitted students usually above 1000

  • Hours not in the presence of a veterinarian can be counted as “animal experience” hours


Vvms

GRE

  • The GRE is also required for admission to vet school

  • Thankfully, the MCAT is not required, but is accepted at some schools

  • If anyone is interested, we can schedule a presentation from Kaplan about test prep
