I had originally planned to only apply to the OVC with the hope that I would be accepted within my first two tries. And even though I got an interview both times I’ve applied, I was unfortunately refused admission. So, I’m planning to apply to other schools as well as the OVC again to expand my options, and hopefully get accepted at an accredited vet school.
I realize that some of the programs overseas (ex. the schools in the UK) have a bachelor of veterinary medicine as opposed to the doctorate of veterinary medicine that I would obtain if I were to be accepted by the OVC next year. Does the difference in the name of the degrees mean anything at all? Would it affect my hiring prospects? What about if I were to go to one of the Caribbean schools (ex. Ross University)- would that also affect my job prospects due to the possible stigma associated with the Caribbean schools?
Since all the schools you have mentioned are AVMA accredited you will be eligible to work in Canada once you are done. If you are looking for information about attitude of employers then it may be best to find alumni from each school and ask them.
