The State of Idaho and Washington have an agreement under which 11 seats in the Washington State University (WSU) College of Veterinary Medicine are guaranteed each year to qualified Idaho residents. Due to the highly competitive nature, Idaho residents who plan on veterinary medicine as a career should satisfy the entrance requirements for the WSU School of Veterinary Medicine, as well as other veterinary schools.
Students should seek regular advising from one of the pre-veterinary advisors. Students must maintain a competitive GPA. Candidates with the greater depth and breadth of the academic background are given preference by WSU. Most students accepted into the veterinary school have earned a bachelor’s degree prior to matriculation.
Students should take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) the summer of the application year in which they apply (usually one year in advance of entering vet school).
Veterinary medicine is an animal-oriented profession; therefore, an applicant’s experience in working with animals and an understanding of the veterinary profession are viewed by professional schools’ admissions committees as important considerations in the selection process.
For additional information on veterinary medicine programs in the United States visit the American Veterinary Medical Association or the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges.
