What are your general comments?

"Western is definitely not a traditional vet school. The teaching style for the first two years revolves around problem based learning and laboratories. The great thing is that there does seem to be a great amount of hands on experience, starting from your first year. However, there is no large animal facility (there is a small animal Banfield). They do take tours to nearby schools/farms/facilities, but if you are looking for an on-campus large animal hospital and/or lecture centered learning then Western is probably not ideal for you.
