Sooo, I'm going to Guelph in the fall... Obviously deciding on Guelph, I decided that prestige, international rank didn't matter.

But do you guys care? I feel like some people go to a school for the sole reason that the school has an international rep.

P.S. I'm planning on doing med/ pharmacy/ grad school, where I hear they don't care about what school you did your undergrad at?

Well, Guelph has one of the best veterinary colleges in the world, so to say it doesn't rank internationally is incorrect. ;)

When it comes to medical school, pharmacy, or graduate schools in Canada, university reputation does not matter (in the U.S. it does however). What matters are your grades/GPA, your reference letters, and your experiences outside of school (research, volunteering, work experience, hobbies, etc.)
