                *  I personally spent almost 2 months at K-State on off-campus rotations during my senior year of vet school (2006-2007) & was very impressed with the education provided there.  Dr. Thompson & Dr. Apley were 2 of the veterinarians I was lucky to have learned from.  We would be excited to hire a K-State graduate at our practice.  

Thank you very much for your time & consideration.
