Over the nearly six years I've been writing this blog I've had many questions from people interested in veterinary school and the life of a vet. Most of these questions are from people in high school and college, and it's not uncommon for them to be asking as part of a project. Often the questions are essentially the same so I've had to answer them in different ways. I realized that with hundreds of blog entries it was hard for someone to find these questions, thus resulting in multiple emails over the years. To help alleviate this as well as make it easier for students to find answers, I'm going to provide this post as a central place to provide links to previous posts.
