    Some of you know that I have been working on applications to vet schools throughout a good portion of last year. I just wanted to give you guys an update and I have some WONDERFUL news!

    A couple days ago, I got a call from one of the colleges. They told me they had good news and I was expecting to get an interview, which I would have been ecstatic about. What I didn't expect, was what they actually told me! I got accepted to Cornell University for veterinary medicine!!! It's been such a wild ride, and I'm sure it will only become more of an adventure, but I couldn't be happier with the awesome news! That was my first choice school and they have a great ornithology and exotic animal program. Ultimately, I would like to work with birds so I think they will be a perfect fit for me!

    I'm still waiting to hear back from Tufts University and University of Tennessee. I was also offered an interview with University of Pennsylvania, which I will attend later this month.

    I just wanted to share the great news, and I would love to hear from anyone who has been through a vet program before so I could pick your brain a bit with some questions.

    Congratulations! That is great news!

    Just curious, did you consider Auburn (Alabama) University? They have an exceptional vet program.

    Thanks!

    Wisher1000, This round of applications I decided to stick with colleges closer to home, though I did apply to two a bit further away (Tennessee and Colorado), but the other three were all within five hours from my home. Originally, I thought I may have to apply again next year and I was going to consider schools further from home to widen my horizons!

    I would say that is great news. My only question is, since Cornell was your first choice and since Cornell seems to be the best school of the bunch that you applied to and since the location of Cornell seems to be reasonably close to your home, then why are you still fooling around with your other schools? Why not just accept your admission to Cornell and be done with it?
