Many of your questions can be answered by referring to the appropriate sections. Seek advice, ask questions, and maintain a balanced perspective. Application materials are listed below.
Veterinary Medical Colleges require the Graduate Record Exam (GRE); however, some colleges will accept the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Some also require the biology subject test in addition to the GRE.
