ST FX NURSING
What were the admission averages for nursing at stfx 2015? How is the school compared to Dalhousie and other universities? Do they accept all Canadians? I'm from the gta. I have around an 82-84 percent average. Will I get in?

Animal Health Technologist / Vet Technician?
Hi Everyone,

I wanted to know if there are any students on here who are doing or who have done
Vet Tech / Animal Health Tech.
Where did you go? How much was it? Did you like it? Did it prepare you for your job? Was it 2 year or longer course? Was their options for Equine classes? What are you currently doing? Do you have any recommendations to help get a better job in the field? 

From what we were told in our Co-op class, In NB, the average Vet Tech makes around $12.50/$13.00. However, I don't mind relocating. What does the average Vet Tech in your Area make?

I'm currently on a "work break" after graduating High School in June. I plan to work for a solid year or two, to save up as much as I can before heading away to University. The less debt I can come out with the better, right? Haha.
I plan to do Vet Tech, focusing in Livestock/Equine. Afterwards get an Equine-extension through University of Guelph.
However I'm not quite sure I have decided where to do my Vet-Tech program at. I am in New Brunswick, so I was thinking Dalhousie University in Truro (Former NSAC) as they are located on the Agricultural Campus and have the option for an Equine Elective. 

Is there anything I could do to help prepare me for Vet Tech? 
I am planning on trying to get some Shadowing/Volunteer work done at a Vet Office starting this upcoming Spring.

I graduated meeting requirements for Dalhousie*, my main course grades are as follows:

English 11 - 82
English 12 - 83*
Biology 11 - 89
Biology 12 - 94*
Chemistry 11 - 64
Chemistry 12 - 94*
Foundations Math 11 - 64
Foundations Math 12 - 87*
Pre-Calculus 11 - 60
Agricultural Science 12 - 88
Co-operative Education 12 - 90 (Equine Placement)

I also took other courses such as History, Graphic Art, Intro to Accounting, Leadership, Nutrition, Wellness, Family Dynamics and Culinary. 

How do requirements differ for your program?
I would love to take other Equine Courses as well, as that is were I really want to focus. Maybe ending up in Ontario or Alberta in a Equine-Vet Clinic. 

I'd love to hear from you; anyone who has, is or even knows someone in Vet Tech/Animal Health Program, or in other Equine Science courses. How it's worked out and any advice you have for me.
