    Does anybody know of a good Vet school in Texas? I'm considering to go into that field... and wondering what school would be a good school for my education.

    I don't have to pay for my tutition part.. because i'm deaf, and i'm going to be getting DARS paying for it

    any info would be greatly appreiatced.

    P.s. i also want to go into herpeotology.

    I don't know about any in Texas, but my friends sister is going to vet school in Iowa and I guess it's supposed to be one of the best schools in the country.

    To my knowledge, Texas A&M is ranked 6 or 7th in the country for their veterinary program, but I think University of Texas offers a herpetology program. You will need to verify that, but I remember reading that whiling doing my college research.

    Also, look into national hearing impaired scholarships. I qualified for several that had the only restriction of schools that offered hearing impaired specific programs (such as online courses and sign language classes), which is most major universities and tech schools. There is also a hearing impaired specific vet scholarship that would be worth looking into. :D

    I was born deaf and have had over 30 surgeries to correct it. I should have a hearing aid for my right ear, but refuse it for the sake of retaining my selective hearing abilities and the hearing aid's lack of style... lol :p Anyways, who needs more than one ear?!?!

    As for scholarships, the public library should have a book with every known scholarship listed in it by disability and by career path for your state and country wide. I also looked into specific schools to see what they might be willing to offer scholarship wise and even pet product companies, such as Kong or Purina. The American Kennel Club will also be a consideration. Even though they are a foundation for dogs, they have wonderful scholarship opportunities for anyone wanting to go into veterinary medicine.
