Veterinarian Undergraduate Majors
Hi! I am very confused on what to major in and I need some help. I want to be a veterinarian and go to vet school. But there is not a pre vet major at my college of choice, so what should I major in? Could someone please help me out and tell me all the options, regarding majors, that I could take? Thanks! #college-major #biology #veterinary #pre-vet
Get the prerequisite list from the Veterinary College you hope to attend. Compare this to degree plans at your undergraduate institution, and requirements for courses you could use if you DONT get into vet school OR it takes several applications (years) to get in. Then consider courses that may not have anything to do with vet school or science and consider how those might fit into a degree plan or a "life "plan".
Todd recommends the following next steps:
If you love biology or chemistry those are always good places to pursue an undergrad degree, but don't feel limited to them. There are a series of pre-requisites that you will have to take to get entrance to a vet program and you could take them while studying Spanish or dance. Pick something that will make you happy and something that you enjoy studying but keep your eye on the ultimate prize of becoming a veterinarian.
Becoming a veterinarian is very ambitious and I applaud your ambition. Best of luck.
