Hi Lollipop,

It usually depends on the vet school that you are looking to apply to. Most schools have a website where you can look into more information regarding the application process. They can also specify requirements for the application (ex: a minimum of a 3.0 GPA).

I would suggest you to look into several vet schools to see what their GPA requirement is. Good luck!

Kathy recommends the following next steps:

Search up the vet school you're interested in.
Look into their application process and requirements.
View if they have a GPA requirement.

Hi Lollipop, I would highly recommend taking a look at Texas A&M one of the best veterinarian schools that you can get into. I would recommend reviewing the requirements here :

I would recommend a 3.0 GPA or above and it helps if u know someone at A&M that u can reference on your application and I would be happy if u would like to use my name.

All students must meet the following requirements to be admitted to the upper level of the program:

Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50
Junior (U3) status – Completion of 60 or more credit hours
Completion of Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) course

Thank you,

Hi Lollipop,

Each school will list its requirements as part of the application. Some schools have a program that starts freshman year of college and then rolls into an advanced degree later. Others begin after you complete your 4-year degree. If it's a program that starts freshman year, it's likely that the GPA requirements will listed in the "admissions" section of that college's website, the same-ish GPA requirement to get into the college for all students.

Here's an example of the requirements needed to get into the doctorate of veterinary medicine program at MSU, look at the "prerequisites" tab too.

Danielle recommends the following next steps:

Also, I suggest you take a look here, at O*Net, look at the kinds of prep vets need to have, what they make on average, and what other jobs are related to vet that you might end up liking more!
