dc.description.abstract <p>On June 12, 1997, I arrived in Melbourne, Australia, and a summer of experiences was launched. I spent my first day and night at the veterinary school in Werribee, Victoria, approximately 35 kilometres west of Melbourne. Their veterinary program is quite different from ours in America, as they do one year of science and then four years at a veterinary school. Acceptance into their veterinary schools occurs when they are in year twelve in high school. They must attain a certain grade point and be at or above the ninety-eighth percentile in their class. The average age of graduating veterinarians in Australia is twenty-four, whereas in America, it is closer to thirty. Economically, veterinary school in Australia only costs students $1,000 per semester, and they can apply for scholarships to help them with living expenses.</p>
