Admission to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine requires a rigorous program of undergraduate study in the basic sciences. Students are encouraged to plan their program of undergraduate study carefully so that they will receive a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture whether or not they are later admitted to the College of Veterinary Medicine. The College of Veterinary Medicine has a limited enrollment policy. Selection of the best qualified applicants for admission is the responsibility of a faculty committee within the College. The committee considers applicants who have met the minimum academic requirements including at least three years of study, or its equivalent, at an accredited college. Students normally apply for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine during their third year of study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Pre-Veterinary Medicine program. Students not admitted to Veterinary Medicine may continue their study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences for a fourth year to complete the requirements for the B.S.A. degree in any major they choose. Several degree programs within the College are compatible with the Pre-Veterinary Medicine program. The program of study will meet the dual objectives of completing the requirements for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine and the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Students should contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, College of Veterinary Medicine, for a more detailed description of requirements for admission to that college.
Available certificate courses include creative writing, critical essay, magazine article writing, news writing and reporting, academic writing, technical writing, advanced composition, and Internet-based writing.
The B.S. in Geography at UGA is for students who typically have interests in geosciences, landforms, weather/meteorology, climate change, plant geography, or related topics. Available coursework includes study of physical geography, earth systems, environmental geography, resources, weather and climate, landforms, statistics and geospatial analysis, global environment change, cartography, and photogrammetry.

''I am the current president of the Georgia Museum of Art Student Association. Our free student night events at the Georgia Museum of Art that have been hugely successful. Working with the wonderful people at the museum has been such a valuable experience for me from the start. I am currently beginning work for a local collector helping to manage a private art collection. This will include photographing artworks, archiving, and doing research about certain artworks and artists. Soon I hope to be doing studio visits and conducting video interviews with artists in the community, which I am very excited about!''
Photography majors are well prepared to continue their work outside of school or to attend further graduate studies. Jobs are available in art direction, digital art, travel photography, film production, photojournalism, portraiture, advertising agencies, the fashion industry, museums & cultural institutions, and others.

Class sizes are small which allows for supportive, one-on-one attention. Each student is given the freedom to pursue their own direction in content and design through a wide range of media (conventional black and white, color, historic processes, digital imaging, video, and installation) and state-of-the-art . Students participate in an internship and senior exhibition with portfolio.
Students enroll in the Pre-Pharmacy program first for two years at a minimum of 60 credit hours. Admission is determined by the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT).

The third essay in this set stands out from the rest. Had the panel who were grading the compositions understood the context of this essay in light of the six others in the set, they probably would have given it more credit. Its strength lies in its funny, lighthearted approach-it shows a completely different aspect of the candidateâs personality. Without it, he would have appeared deadpan serious and probably a bit dull. However, showing the wittier side of himself strengthens the set considerably. It is a good example of allowing yourself to take a risk in one essay, as long as more serious approaches in the others balance it.
