1. The following science and math courses are likely to be required (contact prospective institutions early for specific requirements):

  • Biology1151, 1152
  • Chemistry1551 (Math 1431 (or equivalent) is a pre-requisite to Chemistry 1551) and 1552 (inorganic); Chemistry 2551 and 2552 (organic).
  • Integral and differential calculus: Math 2231 and 2232. The sequence to Math 2231 and 2232 is Math 1431 > Math 1432 > Math 2231 > Math 2232.

Also consider taking Biology 2150, Ecology; Zoology 2260, Invertebrate Zoology; and/or Zoology 2250, Comparative Zoology.

2. Comments about admission to a veterinary school:
Entrance to veterinary school is very competitive. Applicants will likely be required to take the GRE. Some instead may be required to take the VCAT (covers biology and chemistry). Work experience at a veterinary clinic and shadowing a veterinarian would enhance the resume.
