I graduated with my degree in Wildlife Management and Conservation from Humboldt State University. You might want to think about looking at the out of state exchange programs and thinking about trying to go to one of the top schools in the field. The exchange programs can give you in-state tuition prices. I now work the USFWS Refuge system, and as others have said, a good school where you can network coupled with summer jobs are the keys to success. IMHO the top schools for Wildlife to think about are #1 Humboldt State University (of course), followed by in no particular order University of Wisconsin Steven's Point, Texas A&M, University of Idaho, Colorado State, Montana State, UC Davis and Oklahoma. If you look at the conclave results the last 20 years (conclave is a wildlife academic competition I highly suggest you look into) you can see who dominates who on a regular basis.
Yes that would be Humboldt State pretty much every year we don't host.http://www.humboldt.edu/wildlife/
Student Conclaves: Adds work but one of the best experiences you can have http://joomla.wildlife.org/index.php?id ... &task=view
Job wise: Number one resource for you to get summer jobs.http://wfsc.tamu.edu/jobboard/
Nearly everyone posts their jobs on this site all over the country. Good luck, I chose this career path as a junior in high school and have never looked back. Be ready to bust your balls in school, because you will EARN this Bachelor of Science degree. Its a rigorous training program because you are a scientist first, and need to learn how to look at wildlife and its management through that lens. Its going to be tough, you will be taking 2 labs at once plus two to three regular classes and your general ed classes. Best of luck to you, and now is the time to be thinking about where you will be going, it will make your senior year much easier on ya!
