We're here to help you figure out the cost of veterinary school

 

A lot of factors go into choosing a veterinary school. For some students, it’s important to be close to home; others may want to live somewhere completely new. Then there are students who care less about location and more about the focus of the school – is it known for its research programs, focus on production medicine, flexible curriculum? For all but a lucky few veterinary students, cost is an important consideration. With the average costs of four years of veterinary school rising rapidly above $200,000 for in-state and $275,000 for out-of-state, both tuition and cost-of-living are important considerations for many.
