The biology major health track is designed to meet the entrance requirements for most veterinary schools and to prepare students to take the GRE, or Graduate Record Exam (General version), in the junior year. MacMurray's excellent field experience program lets students confirm their career choice and gain valuable experience by working with local veterinarians. Competition for a place in veterinary school is perhaps more intense than for other professional schools. Factors taken into consideration by admissions committees include college grade-point average, score on the GRE career experience with a veterinary practice, and involvement in extracurricular activities. For admission into veterinary school, applicants should have a GPA of at least 3.5 to 3.75.
