I’m thinking about applying to USC as either a pre-health biology major or a pre-health marine biology major. I want to attend vet school in the near future and wanted to know which one would be best to do or if I should major in something else that would set me up for success in vet school.

I also wanted to know what the job options would be if I didn’t get accepted into vet school if I did major in one of these. Note: this question was asked anonymously by a learner

What career other than vet could someone with an interest in animals/healthcare pursue?

I’m an 11th grader. I’ve wanted to be a veterinarian since I was 5. I’ve taken all the classes I believed were useful for my career and am in a program for aspiring medical professionals. However I’m having doubts now as many vets say that it’s an under appreciated job with high stress that you shouldn’t go into if you “just like animals” (the main reason I wanted to enter the field) I’m feeling a bit lost now. I considered becoming a paramedic but I was told it was a high-stress, low-pay job. What other careers could I pursue?

I really want to be a vet but science doesn't naturally click with me- is it possible?

I've wanted to be a vet for 3 years now and I've looked thoroughly into the ins and outs of it. I don't naturally get science though, I'm just not scientifically inclined and my grades in them aren't amazing but also not the worst (Grade 5/6/7 at GCSE). I try to force myself to want to do another career, but I just want to do veterinary. I feel like I'd always be jealous of vet students if I did that. It seems like it's rooted in me but I'd be a fraud and I wouldn't get what's going on, especially not as quickly as everyone else who's always gotten A* in all sciences. I'm due to choose my A-levels within a month or two. I definitely think if I carried on with wanting to be a vet, I'd apply to foundation courses where I'd only have to do one science. Any advice? :(
