How difficult will it be to get into veterinary school?

I am a high school senior who is considering going to UC Davis and majoring in animal science. I plan to go there because they have the best veterinary school in the nation, and the vet school also accepts around 40 undergrad students from Davis, which is the most, and around 10 students from the next college with the highest number of students admitted. I know I will have an advantage by going to UC Davis as an undergraduate, but how difficult will it be for me to get into veterinary school after that?

Hi Sachi, There is no magic formula for getting into vet school, however there are things you can do to make your application as strong as possible. You need good grades to go to vet school. You don't have to earn all A's but you need to have a strong GPA. If you can work at a veterinary clinic or volunteer with some veterinary programs abroad this is valuable. Lastly, have a back up plan. The average person applies 1.5 times before getting accepted to vet school, therefore you may do everything right and not be accepted right away. Apply to several schools (keep in mind private and out of state tuition), and maybe plan to work full time in between applications to save money. If you don't get in at first make a plan to discuss with the dean how you can improve your application. Good luck!
