"Kansas State University's College of Veterinary Medicine is a wonderful graduate program. It offers essential core classes in all areas of veterinary interest, including exotics, which not every veterinary school does. It offers a multitude of hands-on opportunities for students to get involved both on and off-campus, hosts guest speakers and club events, and has many varied electives to choose from. While it is one of the more expensive veterinary colleges to attend, the quality of education you receive is well-worth the cost."

"The Graduate school offers tremendous amount of resources and accessibility to enrich your studies. There are continuous club meets and events to enrich networking and the teachers are very approachable. The area surrounding the school lack public transportation and due to the rural area some opportunities are limited. Overall, I am very pleased to be attending Kansas State University!"

"The pro's would be that this program has a lot of opportunities for you to get "outside" the classroom experience, which is great for our field. The teachers are extremely helpful and will work overtime to make sure we understand the material. In the program, we all act like family and help support each other, we are not trying to out-compete one another. The con's would be the price tag, especially for out-of-state students, and that is how it is at every school for this program. Another con would be the lack of up-to-date technology in the classroom and labs, which makes it a little tougher to learn the material."

"KSU CVM is preparing myself and my classmates for a career in Veterinary Medicine very well. Course work is rigorous, but beneficial and we are looking forward to completing our clinical year next year in the teaching hospital with faculty members."

"We don't get into the clinic until 4th year and the rotations can either overwhelm you or leave you with some free time depending on which one you're in. We lack tech support in our ICU, so students do a lot of the work as mandatory shifts. The clinicians are overall very friendly, however they recently made our teacher reviews non-anonymous, so students rarely get to input criticism without the potential for it coming back to haunt them."

"For anyone pursuing a career in veterinary medicine, you know that you are looking forward to a lifetime of difficult but rewarding work. Veterinary school is no different. Kansas State University College of Veterinary medicine is a competitive and challenging program that prepares students for a career as a veterinarian. The school provides a variety of very well qualified educators and numerous resources to assist with the students learning. My only complaint is the lack of hands-on clinical experience within the first two years of the program. Otherwise I am happy with my education and comforted knowing that my school is doing all they can to prepare me for my future."

"Great program, with special interests in exotics, beef cattle (esp. feedlot), and epidemiology. Less equine focus. No tracking. Less hands-on training than a lot of schools before hitting clinics. Great faculty + large animal hospital good for shadowing, but small animal hospital less amenable to shadowing. Cost of program vs value is a challenge. Try to get residency status first."
