Alum heads to highly selective veterinary program at Ivy League university


Emily Spica, a 2007 graduate of The Grosse Pointe Academy, was recently accepted into the University of Pennsylvania’s veterinary medicine program, which is ranked one of the top 10 veterinary programs in the country.

Spica, who was president of her class at GPA, attended the Interlochen Arts Academy and recently graduated from Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. She begins at Penn in the fall in a very selective veterinary school in a highly competitive field. In fact, only about 10% of applicants are accepted into the program on an annual basis.
