    Does ISU have a good Vet school?

    I am guessing they might....I know that my daughter is only five, but she has seemed pretty intent the last year of wanting to be a vet....of course, that can change 100 times...but daddy wants to keep the little one close by...I was hoping for Drake, but Ames is just 30 minutes away.

    Anyone take Vet courses at ISU?

    Yes, you are correct. I was just trying to make a point with a quote from my friend, Joe Dirt (alternative pronunciation Joe Deertay).

    Re: Does ISU have a good Vet school?

    The few people I know that have had to go up there in emergency situations have had nothing but good things to say.

    Besides, I'm guessing there's a good chance that the vet you go to went to ISU. I'd think that would reflect well.

    Does Iowa City have a University? Does it have Sports Teams?

    Re: Does ISU have a good Vet school?

    I think it was one of the first vet schools founded in the whole country. It used to be considered the "best", but may no longer be. There was a problem with it's Accreditation a few years ago that sounded like a money and political issue to me. Still I'm sure it's one of the top 10 in the county to go to. I'm sure some Vet's can give us the scoop.

    I've got some young kids too Jon and really don't care where they go as long they go to college. I'll admit if they chose Iowa, that will be a tough pill to swallow, but I suppose I won't mind if they become a lawyer or doctor.

    Re: Does ISU have a good Vet school?

    They are currently on probation with their ABET accreditation, but that was because the facilities were run down, not because of the lack of quality program. They got a ****ton of money and are making a lot of nice additions to their already frankenstine-like building (if you've ever tried to do anything maintence there you'd know what I mean)

    Translation: it's a good program that just got a shot in the arm to keep it that way

    Re: Does ISU have a good Vet school?

    If she wants to be a vet someday, and wants to go to Iowa State, that would be fantastic. I could care less about that crap. School is school, and education is education.

    And being near your daughter while she goes to school is a nice bonus

    I dunno - you're treading on some dangerous grounds here. Does Iowa City have a community college? Certainly. A university? Not so sure about that one.

    Asking if Iowa City has sports teams is probably akin to asking if a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around, does it make a sound? Does it make a noise?

    Thank the good lord that I followed this...otherwise I'd probably still root for the dark side.
