I am a sophomore in high school in Boston, and I was wondering what I can do inside and outside of the classroom in order to prepare me for a potential career as a veterinarian. I understand that getting into vet schools is very difficult, so I would like to know what activities I can participate in to better my chances of getting into one, and pursuing my dream career. #veterinarian #veterinary #veterinary-medicine #animals #veterinary-technician

The best preparation within school is to take as many science and math classes as possible - especially biology and chemistry. Outside of the classroom, find a veterinary clinic where you can volunteer or work. The very best thing you can learn right now are the things you DO NOT want to do, either within veterinary medicine or otherwise.
