My neighbor is a vet. She had to have better grades than pre med students. Getting into vet school was more competitive then medical school! That was less then eight years ago. She graduated high school with straight A's, and two years of college credit BEFORE she entered college. Study hard and stay focused.
GPA of 82.??! From your placement in class I would say your average is 82.?? Percent. Veterinary School (College) is at a minimum of 12 years! Being in the bottom third of your class will not get you into the college you need to be in. You might try veterinary technician, or assistant!
