Animal Sciences


Hi! My name is Emma Tracy and I’m from a small suburb of St. Charles County called Defiance, Missouri. I went to Washington University in St. Louis my freshman year of undergrad before transferring to Mizzou for their Animal Sciences program. I graduated in May of 2015 with my Bachelors in Animal Sciences. I have a 3-year-old pitbull named Roxy and a Thoroughbred ex-racehorse named Izzy. I compete in jumpers and eventing with Izzy in my spare time!

Now if you’re not entirely sure whether you want to go to law school, that is completely okay, I didn’t either! My entire life I have wanted to be a veterinarian. I spent countless summers shadowing various veterinarians to accumulate hours for my application. During my junior year of undergrad I applied and was accepted early to Mizzou’s College of Veterinary Medicine. After a semester of vet school, it dawned on me that veterinary medicine was not what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I had toyed with the idea of applying to law school before I applied to vet school, and in hindsight, it was absolutely the right decision.

If you’re interested in law school but nervous because you don’t have a legal background, your parents weren’t lawyers, or you have an obscure major (crazy horse girl here), never fear! I can’t say enough good things about my decision to attend Mizzou Law. If you ever have any questions about anything at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! I am so excited that you are considering becoming a Mizzou Tiger!
