Good Safety Schools?

Hey all! I am a rising senior and plan on going into a pre-veterinary track (animal science/biology) and possibly double majoring in business. I have been struggling to find good safety schools that are still somewhat selective and well-reputed but would act as safety schools. I have an overall UW GPA of 3.9, but my SAT is kind of low and I am probably going to retake it to get above a 1300. Does anyone have any good safety recommendations for these stats plus my majors?

hi! i am also wanting to do animal science. the great thing about california is that most schools dont require SAT/ACT. great schools are UC Davis, UC Merced, SDSU, UCSD, UCSB, UCI, and Cal Poly SLO. the best safety school out of that list is definitely Merced.

Maybe University of Delaware? You'll have to work on your SATs quite a bit if they're under 1300 but they have a BS in Pre-veterinary medicine. University of Arizona and Michigan State could also be some more semi-competitive schools.
