Hi,My girlfriend has already two masters and she wants to be a vet. I checked out the cost of vet school and it looks like $120000 - $150000 is the cost of just tuition and books. She's almost 30, and I really feel this is a bad decision on her part.What do you think?Thanks
First time posting on this site! Bear with me...I am a Junior majoring in Animal Sciences. I started with the pre-vet option but have recently come to realize vet school isn't for me. I'm now trying to decide whether to stay in Animal Science but take a different track, or switch majors completely. Any insight would be appreciated regarding the following possibilities...1. Pursue a BS in Animal Science production & management (would be the 'easiest' option because I am already at least halfway t...
Hey Zac,I've been struggling with the same thing, except I'm almost 43!!! My kids are all in college now themselves. I'm not sure I could handle going back to school, but if I knew that I could be hired when I'm 51!!!!, I'd do it. I say, if you really want to do, do it now!! Don't wait until you're my age!Good luck on your decision!
Hi I am a 16 year old student that is interested in becoming a vet. I love animals and I really want to get some experience working at a vet office. Is there any way for me to get a job maybe cleaning or something like that? I have been applying but I can't ever find anyone that will hire 16 year olds. Currently I volunteer at the Woodland Park Zoo in the contact area so I have some experience working with animals but I would really like to find a paid position somewhere. Thanks for your help!

studying to take fl state test. have heard many times that it is an arcane endeavor. every minutia is in the paperweight of materials downloaded from the florida site. does anyone know of a website or guideline to the materials that can help me be more focused in on what to study, so all umpteenth pages do not have to be memorized word for word, along with every variation of discipline for each individual infraction. sample question if available would also be appreciated.
Hi everyone,For some years I've considered the idea of going to vet school but I've been working full time since I was 24 and never took the time to finish my BA in Biology. Well, as of last January I started back to school to finish my degree and have recently become laid off so I will be focusing hard over the next year to finish this by December of 2013 (I already had my associates). I should earn my BA in Bio by December of 2013 or MAYBE the spring semester of 2014 at the ABSOLUTE latest.If ...

So I'm currently a Surgical Technologist/Medical Assistant, but I'm planning to go back for my nursing degree. Not sure if I want to do LPN or RN, or if I should just do Healthcare Administrations because I think I like the administration side better. The only thing is that I wouldn't mind either side, but I don't know what to do or choose, as I'm also trying to go by the job/career field that's high in demand right now and in the future.I need some advice because I need to make this decision ...
I am considering becoming a vet and am starting out in community college. I was wondering if I should first get a two year degree to become a vet tech so that I could work while I do the rest of my schooling. Would vet tech courses be helpful to a pre-vetinary major at a university? Or should I be taking different courses? Would getting and associate vet tech degree be a waste of time?
