I know it has been a very long time since I have posted, but to say that my life has been tumultuous these past months would be an understatement. That being said, I have very exciting news, I have been accepted into my first choice of veterinary school and will be attending the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in the fall! After months and months of waiting and being accepted into four amazing veterinary school programs, I am glad that this application journey is over (even though it has been an exciting one). I am not an exceptionally patient person, so waiting 6 months to hear back from veterinary schools was a rather stressful experience for me. However, the wait was most definitely worth it and I’m so excited to be embarking on the next chapter of my life!
For those of you interested in applying to veterinary school in the future or for those who are getting ready to apply in May, feel free to contact me! I would love to help in any way that I can!
With the semester 2/3 of the way over, I am crazily trying to make plans for winter break. I have almost 6 weeks off of school and it is the perfect time to get more shadowing experience with a veterinarian. Winter break is prime time for an internship because even with doing a 3 week internship, it still leaves 3 weeks to celebrate the holidays with family. I am going to put in some hours at work (I work at a small animal emergency hospital) and have found an equine veterinarian to shadow. A variety of experience is always helpful when applying to vet school, plus it’s really fun to be around and work with other animals than cats and dogs. Since I have spent 13 years around horses, I already have an equine background, but it can never hurt to get more experience! As a student who has shadowed many veterinarians over the years, I encourage all pre-vet college students and even middle school (that’s when I started!) and high school students who are interested in becoming a veterinarian, to reach out and contact their local vet. Veterinarians are normally more than happy to help students out and to have you shadow them because they know what the process is like and they want to help!
