Nationally, in recent years the average applicant to veterinary medical college applied to approximately four schools. Wherever else you may decide to apply, you should also apply to the public veterinary medical college in your home state. State residents receive preference for admission to their state schools and pay much lower tuition. Conversely, before you consider public schools outside your home state, remember that most of them accept relatively few out-of-state students and that tuition is high.
If you are applying to veterinary medical colleges outside of your state, private schools may be your safest bet. Consult the VMSAR for information on a school’s proportion of in-state to out-of-state entrants
