The article “State cuts put colleges in precarious situation” in the March 1, 2012, issue of JAVMA News listed a number of incorrect percentages. The correct percentages are as follows:
The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges found that median veterinary tuition increased 84 percent for out-of-state students and 101 percent for in-state students from 2000-2001 to 2010-2011. Student aid per veterinary student increased 42 percent in that time.
The AAVMC projects a 3.7 percent increase in enrollment at U.S. veterinary colleges from 2011-2012 to 2012-2013. The greatest increase in the past decade was 4.9 percent from 2008-2009 to 2009-2010.
