What are your general comments?

"First of all... the program they offer at U of H is incredible. They do everything they can during the interview to make you feel comfortable and to let you know who they are, so you can make the right decision as to where you belong. They want to get to know you. They aren't going to drill you about your application or anything like that. Just make sure you know why you want to be an optometrist good and eat a good breakfast. :-) " Report Response
