Veterinary Medicine Pre-Requisites


The requirements for each Veterinary Medical College vary and we encourage all our students to review the specific websites of each institution. As a general rule a competitive GPA will demonstrate a 3.7 in each of the science and non-science prerequisites required for the Veterinary Medical program. Within Canada, the MCAT is no longer required. In the United States, some programs may still accept the MCAT as a component of your application.
