Does anyone know the rankings for vet schools?

By Alexandre (Alexandre) on Monday, August 09, 2004 - 04:41 pm: Edit

Cornell, Colorado State, Michigan State, Penn, NC State, Texas A&M, Wisconsin-Madison, Florida to name a few. But I am pretty sure that in some, if not all cases, those programs are only availlable after the completion of 2 or 3 years of college.

Is Cornell the best vet school? Where is Davis ranked?

Purdue and Davis have excellent schools of Agriculture, but I am not sure about their vet schools.

UC Davis is the only vet school in California and is excellent. UPenn also has a fine vet school.

In all cases, vet school is a post-graduate school. There was a thread some months ago iscussing the difficulties of getting into vet school.

Cornell without a doubt. It had the best reputation for vet sciences. It is ranked #1 on US News

Washington State University has an excellent vet school.

Vet school is more competitive to gain admission to than medical school. My sister-in-law went to Texas A&M. She went to Duke undergrad, graduating with a BME degree, followed by an MBA from Rice. She felt lucky to get in anywhere. She received an outstanding education through A&M.

Be prepared to try at least twice for admission. I know that a relative had to take that route even though her overall stats were very good. Not straight A college gpa, but pretty good overall. She was waitlisted the first time round & then re-applied the following year & will be starting classes in 2 weeks at U of Penn's Vet school.
