                                     SOPHOMORE YEAR
  The subjects chosen during the sophomore year should be those that will
conform to
the requirements of the institution to which the student hopes to transfer
and complete
his work in forestry.
  The U. S. Forest Products Laboratory, cooperating with the University of
Wiscon-
sin, in addition to giving the subjects, 1, General Forestry, and 102, Wood
Technology,
which are offered as agricultural electives, also gives other courses which
deal with
the study of wood, its properties and uses. See courses listed on pages 215-216.
                                 PRE-VETERINARY
  The University of Wisconsin confers no Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees.
The
leading institutions that do confer such degrees require their students to
have had at
least one year of general college work to prepare them for the more highly
specialized
veterinary studies. The present tendency is to require a minimum of two years
of pre-
veterinary work. It is important for prospective veterinary science students
to know
that veterinary colleges operate on a restricted enrollment basis. Only the
student who
ranks high scholastically while taking his pre-veterinary work, may expect
to gain ad-
mission to a veterinary college.
  Normally, a student in a veterinary college is required to take four years
of pro-
fessional study regardless of the number of years of pre-veterinary study
he may have
had. To enable residents of Wisconsin to get the necessary college work that
will
qualify them for entrance to a veterinary college, the College of Agriculture
offers the
following pre-veterinary course:

history, zoology,
mathematics, or physics. Students desiring information about veterinary medicine
as a profession
may elect Veterinary Science I in the first semester.

  In addition to courses such as Agricultural Economics I or 8, Biochemistry
1, Botany
1, Dairy Husbandry 4, Economics la, Genetics 1, Mathematics 1, and Speech
1 or 7, it
is recommended that the student select courses which will provide a suitable
background
for work in the field of veterinary science.
  The cost of each year of study will be the same as for any year of study
in the Long
Course. (See page 196.)
