A lot of people keep pets in bschool. I have a dog. It stays in my apartment during the day, runs around like crazy, acts like he's the owner of me...
Other students also have dogs and sometimes we walk the dogs together. As long as your dog is well trained and it doesn't bark all day when he or she is alone, I think it should be okay.
My only problem is that having a dog in bschool just runs up huge expense that I have not anticipated, but oh well....
I don't think that animal of yours counts as a dog nink.
I know a few people here who have dogs. It made the apartment search a little more challenging since not all buildings allow pets, but in the end they all found places to live they're happy with. So, it's definitely do-able.
