Hey mate i actually wanted to be a Vet ask a kid up until about halfway through year 10 when my parents said they could afford to send me to Perth (at the time no Vet Schhool in SA). It was one of those things that i always wanted to do and when that was shut down i wasnt sure what i wanted to do.
Now im a bit over Vet, not saying its not fantastic just for me its not my priority anymore. But the field im in now is very similar to Vet as im in a Medical career so work with peoples health. Good luck with the Vet though, will be a big change but i reckon you will love it.
Ps. for anyone in this threat ive come to the realisation of two of the most important things i believe you can find out when your young in respect to your career and future. Firstly is that been at uni or in training later into life is the norm now. Nothing out of the norm to be 30 years old and looking for your first propersional job. Secondly is that remember a few years of sacrifice now when your young can pay off to a much different pathway through life and retirment. An example of this is i took a year off uni to reassess the way your heading and if that really is what you want to do. I dont want to be a person that says ill to such and such and then be 50 and say 'nope this isnt what i wanted to do all my life'. I reckon its worth while ironing out kinks and taking your time whilst your young rather than finiding out later in life your career isnt one that you want to be in and/or your financial situation isnt where you want to be.
Edit: Hey Tae just out of interest who did you work for in Marketing? Thought everyone in SA that did Marketing would have headed to the Eastern States as there is no massive market for it here. Also with the Vet studies you have to do them at Roseworth Campus dont you, bit of a drive? Havent looked into it for a while so not sure but do you do 3 years of Animal Studies and then do 3 years at Roseworthy or is it 6 years straight at Roseworthy now that they built that new campus?
Sorry for the late reply, i've been on holidays ^^.
yes it IS at the roseworthy campus >< but its worth it. I found out that i officially got in yesterday. Its 3 years doing science (pre-vet) then another 3 years for doctor in veterinary medicine. so its pretty much 6 straight years.
I worked in sydney for 3 months before i was able to go back to adelaide to get a sweet job. I work for news limited, so pretty much my job DOES involve marketing but its more on the public relations/advertising side of things
