Students in Louisiana Tech University’s Animal Science and Biology programs traditionally have strong placement rates when they apply to veterinary medicine school, and this year is no exception.

When the next academic year begins, 17 soon-to-be Louisiana Tech alumni – 63 percent of Tech applicants who meet the GPA requirement for admission to veterinary school – will embark on the journey of a lifetime as they study to provide health care for pets and livestock.

“Each of these students has worked hard to prepare for their next challenge,” said Dr. Rebecca McConnico, Professor and Veterinarian. “We’re so proud of their achievements and look forward to the next steps for them.”
