Does anyone on Metafilter know of any college in or near St. Louis that offers a summer course in animal nutrition? The course is required or recommended for application to a few veterinary schools, and I'd like to take it, but it needs to be this summer, and I'll be in St. Louis. I can't find any colleges around here that offer it, although I'll admit I haven't searched the course webpage of every single school around here.
It seems like very few schools actually offer animal nutrition courses, and most pre-vet students have to take it online at one of about four schools. This amounts to a hefty sum of cash--the cheapest I've found is $705 for an online course through OSU. Basically, I'm looking for either a cheaper online course or a cheaper physical course near enough to St. Louis that I can come back every day.
Bonus points if it's through an accredited four-year university--they like that.
