Transcript of Veterinarian
Earning a doctor of veterinary medicine degree typically takes four years. Although it is sometimes possible to gain acceptance to a college of veterinary medicine without first earning a bachelor’s degree, most students have completed their undergraduate degrees before enrolling. Admission is highly competitive -- fewer than 50 percent of those who applied for admission in 2010 were accepted, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics -- so students might want to consider whether earning their four-year degrees would increase their chances for acceptance.
