I am interested in applying to veterinary school at Ross/SGU, I have taken all my pre-reqs except for O.Chem and Biochem. I was thinking on taking those classes at a 2 year college this summer break. I want to know if it even matters where you take your classes at.
Another question I have is that what are the chances of getting into vet. school with a GPA of 2.5 (my community college GPA), the thing is that last year I messed up and got two F's at my four year university bringing down my GPA to 1.4. I could take some easy classes next semester to bring up my GPA to 2.5(ish). So, lets say I get the 2.5 GPA overall, would that be sufficient? I have noticed that the schools(Ross and SGU) don't have GPAs posted, so I have no idea what is the minimun GPA score they accept.
I still have to take the GRE, and I am sure I will get a kind of good score. I just need to practice for it.
I also have experience with animals for years if that counts, I used to work in an animal clinic as a bather. And I helped veterinarians from time to time with surgeries and patients/owners. I volunteered at the Humane society, also I used to be a pet-sitter. I have also owned different kind of animals, iguanas, scorpions, fish, chinchillas, rats, dogs, cats, birds, turtles. I just love animals and would love to become a veterinarian. I donated money to the SPCA, PETA, WWF... don't know if that even matters.
Any thoughts, comments, anything is greatly appreciated
