No. Medical school comes after you graduate from college (or university).

"For the most part, the University of Phoenix offers many of the same majors and programs as ordinary universities. It has a school of Business, a College of Criminal Justice, a College of Education, Humanities, Natural Sciences, Nursing, Social Sciences, and Information Systems and Technology."

Colleges and universities of all types get complaints (whether online or on campus). It is virtually impossible to please everyone. That being said, the University of Phoenix is a great university, with good faculty and an outstanding support staff. The university has the preferred accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and is a College Board member. While you should always research negative rumors of a school, in this case the University of Phoenix is no more complaint filled than any other college or university. Most of the students I have spoken to who have completed a degree through this university have had nothing but good things to say.

Phoenix Univeristy is a diploma mill and none of their credits will be accepted by anywhere.Note that I want to be very clear here: Phoenix University and the University of Phoenix are not at all the same thing. The former is a worthless diploma mill; the latter is a respectable for-profit school with regional accreditation.However, even if you had meant the University of Phoenix: it's up to each individual school whether they accept transfer credits from any other school or not. Before you spend a lot of time and money taking any courses, you should talk to the admissions office of the school you plan to transfer to and make sure that the specific courses you're taking will transfer... it's certainly possible that University A accepts B College courses, except for those in the economics department, which is not so good for you if you were planning to major in economics.

Yes, these are generic terms for university programs that provide an education in veterinary medicine.

No there is nothing wrong with that. As long as the college or university has a regional accreditation it will be fine.

"College" and "university" usually mean the same thing; that is, post-secondary education, or education after high school. However, there can also be the distinction that a college only offers undergraduate degrees (e.g. bachelors), whereas a university offers graduate degrees (e.g. Masters, PhD). A single university can be divided into "colleges" or "schools", which means they are all a part of the university but focus on a specific subject. They can be considered as departments of a university. For example, the University of Southern California has the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences; the Viterbi School of Engineering; the Thorton School of Music, the Roski School of Fine Arts; etc. Each has its specific emphasis but they are all on the same campus and all of the students will graduate with a degree from USC. I hope this helps answer your question!

High School starts at grade 9, so you would be 14 or 15 years old. High school lasts for 4 years. So usually at around 18 years old you go to college, which is the same as a university. You can go to college for 2, 4, 6 or 8 years.

yes... and no. A university is composed of different colleges ( or schools, if you want-) usually a university will have a school of arts and sciences, education, communication, etc. A separate college may specialize in one of these areas, like a teacher college or one like MIT that specializes in sciences, math, and technology.

Yes it does. The University of Phoenix has the preferred regional accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and is a College Board member.

You must contact the University of Phoenix Office of the Registrar to inquire about their transfer credit policies and regulations. Typically, national accreditation agency criteria is not at the same standard as regional accreditation agencies. Most colleges that I am familiar with, including the one I am employed at, do not accept credits in transfer from institutions that have a national accreditation.

No. The University of Baltimore began as an upper-level (junior/senior) school that merged with a few smaller colleges in the immediate area in and around Mt. Vernon, including Mt.
