What is the top vet school?

Vet schools can be ranked on the following factors: (and more)


-acceptance rate

-average GPA of accepted vet school students

-opportunities for professional development


-hands-on opportunities

-research opportunities


The University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine has been ranked as the top vet school by all three organizations that rank veterinary schools.

You also might be wondering who are the organizations that contribute to vet school rankings.

The three organizations that rank veterinary schools are the U.S. News & World Report,  Quacquarelli Symonds, and the Academic Ranking of World Universities.

The fact that UC Davis School of veterinary medicine operates a world-renowned state of the art modern animal hospital, has helped contribute to its #1 held spot in all 3 vet school ranking reports.

Cornell University and UC Davis usually hold the top 2 spots year after year. The last time Cornell University vet school was ranked #1, was back in 2008.  You can expect the vet school rankings reports to come out every 4 years. The Royal Dick School of Veterinary Medicine in London also gets picked as one of the top 5 worldwide vet schools.


If vet school is on your mind being an overachiever can actually be fun with an anatomy coloring book.  If you are on the fence about going to vet school or med school, the Netter’s Anatomy Coloring book is the way to go. The majority of anatomy terms are the same for all species. So memorizing the names of the bones, fossas, quadrants, condyles, and all of the other medical terminologies will become easier with a head start.

  • Netter's Anatomy Coloring Book is a perfect companion to the Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank H. Netter, MD as well as Netter's Anatomy Flash Cards and Netter's Clinical Anatomy textbook.
