    I am currently in classes going towards getting a degree in medic fire fighting type stuff, but i have been working in vet offices since i was 16 "now going on 20" as time goes on im starting to realise how much i really enjoy my job and have been considering going further with my school / life plans and try to be a DVM. My gpa isnt great right now or atleast not enough to get into a vet school but im willing to redo classes i blew off to pretty up my gpa and get a bachelors in a qualifying degree to get in. I have talked with all of the doctors i have worked with between two clinics and there happy to help but its always nice to hear from others there experiences or any tips and/or knowledge on the subject. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great rather you yourself is a dvm, in school for it, or know others. Also i would be getting the batchelors here locally at a smaller school then looking for acceptance hopefully to save money because i would have to get loans for vet med school. Any ideas on saving money for finding a cost effective way to reach my goals? Finally last i see the army has a veterinarian branch that will pay for school then have you work your time on base, any experience or knowledge on the subject ?

    Thanks for taking the time to read and give your thoughts

    I did med school, first thing I'd redo would be English comp. Not even sure what you're asking.

    Just advise on how to apply to vet schol? Or how to get your GPA up? What major to take? If you actually put some specific questions you might get some replies.

    Good luck.

    Just advise on the best way to apply, what most med schools look for, any information about the army helping with this if i decide that is an option for me, and personal experiences with the difficulty of the med school. Thanks
