“As a pre-vet student, we have central examinations that are...conducted by the National Board Examinations and based upon your marks first, based upon your ranks first, and based upon the friends of your college you are…allotted a college and that’s how you get into vet school,” Jacob told Adam Christman, DVM, MBA.
