Brain needs foooooood

Over the years, I've always planned on going back to school. After my brief stint at a local animal hospital, I definitely knew that I wanted to learn more and get my BS in veterinary technology. For the last two years, I figured I would go to Brown Mackie College, however, you are not "officially" a veterinary technician through them. You know all the in's and out's but you get paid the same as an assistant. Tonight, while looking for information online to read (why not learn now before I'm in a class?), I found that Purdue has online classes. When I was in high school, I wanted to go to Purdue. In fact, I never even considered what I would do if I wasn't accepted into Purdue. I had no back-up plan, it was Purdue or bust. Then, my teenage angst took over, and I dropped out of school. The idea that I could still get a degree from Purdue is just... there aren't even words. There's a university nearby that I could commute to as well and get an in class experience if I'd rather go that route. Both are very good schools for veterinary science but Purdue is the school. I really can't wait but I know better than to rush it before I have the time (or money) to devote to such a rigorous course. Doesn't stop me from being excited now!

That would be so cool, Jamie. I know that more and more places are offering online classes. I would think you can do the bulk of the work online, with practical experience or internships locally. Go for it! Love, Beth

Online classes to start would be great. Do not wait to long though, get started and make it part of your routine, or you will find reasons (excuses) to not do it.

Go for it...seriously, do it. If you want to do something do it while you are young. Take it from this old bat who wishes SHE had done what she really wanted to do.
