This is all so contrary to my view of vets in practice. The practices round here are male dominated, except for one which is all female. I can't imagine the female vets I have had contact with in anything but wellies to be honest. Where do all these six inch high heel girly girls end up??? I am in a rural area so maybe they are all in cities.

If you're ever out at HH and need a chat about it, message me on here. It sucks to feel like you can't keep up with your peers in terms of makeup and hair and clothes or whatever; but if they're not your people, they're not your people. You will eventually find someone a little more like-minded. That being said, I can understand how you feel like you're going to drown in a sea of vets at HH - there are a lot of students in every year group, and I always think it's strange that people in the same years don't even know each other. I would probably try to make the most of the university you're part of by joining some societies outside of vet land. Other courses tend to think vets are dead exotic, but can't understand why we have more lectures than they did.
If you really want to be a vet, you will get through this. Also I'm pretty sure RVC have Camden and HH based counselling services that you should definitely take advantage of if you're struggling for someone to talk to.
