Picking the right College/University?

I am currently a senior in High School, and I am trying to find a good college. Now, I guess this is a two part question-I want to go to a good college with a good veterinary school, because I would like to become a vet in the future, but I also want to play college soccer. I dont think I'm good enough for a Division 1 team, but I'm certain I can play at the D3 level, as I've been told multiple times. The thing is, many major universities with a good veterinary program are D1 schools. The second part of the question is, do I have to study something before going to vet school? Like, Biology or Zoology and stuff like that?

So, just to recap, I want to know what school has a good veterinary program and is a D3, maybe D2 school, and I want to know if I in fact have to study Biology, Zoology, etc. to get into Veterinary school. Please help, I'm really stressed out about this whole process. Thanks in advance


I live in Illinois, and I would prefer a school within the midwest...I dont really want to be that far from home

    Look at schools within these conferences. I would do it, but I don't know where you want the location to be at.

    Some top schools which aren't Ivy Leagues in the New England area are MIT, Tufts, Boston College, Williams, Amherst, Middlebury, Boston University, Colby, and Wesleyan. Try not to worry about price too much. You will get financial aid. But there are really good state schools. I know UMass Amherst has a very well respect honors program that you could probably get into.
