Wish I Could Work At a Vet Hospital

I wish I could afford to work at a vet hospital while pursuing my pre vet….but the hours and pay are terrible for vet techs. I left my job as a vet tech to take a job at a hotel because of the amazing pay and benefits. I was working third shift for little to nothing, I couldn’t support my family.

It would be amazing it the vet industry got a boost.

Vet Schools?

As of right now I am considering

  1. Cornell University (#2)
  2. Louisiana State University
  3. University of Cambridge (#4)
  4. University of California – Davis (#1)

These are my top 4 vet schools I am considering.

All offer combined DVM/PhD programs except for…

University of Cambridge which offers a 6 year veterinary program. Cambridge also offers extensive graduate programs in Biochemistry which is my secondary focus. #4 vet school in the world. #1 research center in the world and most prestigious and oldest university in existence. Cambridge is also the cheapest veterinary program cost wise. Downfall: Accreditation in every country except for the US and Canada.

Cornell is the only Ivy League veterinary program in the country. the #2 vet school in the world

Louisiana State is home for my husbands family.

California – Davis is the #1 vet school in the world.

I will be completing my B.S Chemistry at Eastern Kentucky University. I have the option of  completing my masters as well but would like to attend a more prestigious graduate school as well. Kentucky does not have a Vet school. We have seats at Auburn and Tuskegee but both are very low on the vet school ranking board. No-matter where I go I will be an out of state student with a disadvantage.

Soon…

Spring 2017, I re-embark on my journey of becoming Dr. Emily Gautreaux (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine). I have no idea where this journey will take me or what I will experience along the way, but I will make sure to share all the details! Nervous, anxious, afraid….but at the same time excited. Along the way there will be recipes, fun facts, cleaning tips, crazy stories about my husband and kids. Stay tuned.
