How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"Interviewing Drs. were very conversational. Although my performance determined the direction of my life, I was able to remain calm and collected by the warm atmosphere. The new lecture hall is very nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I think the school needs some more remodeling. Also, the interview was extremely casual and I was disappointed that I couldn't showcase more of my knowledge. I did not feel confident afterwards when I was told ''based on your gpa, we'll be putting you on hold... this is a good thing! you aren't rejected'' Yea. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview was more based on ''likability'' factor rather than knowledge of the profession. I assume that the admissions committee has determined who they are looking for and after reading personal statements/applications they already know your interest and I think they were just trying to see if you can present yourself professionally, confidently, and believable as a future optometrist." Report Response

"Anyone reading this: APPLY EARLY!!! This is a HUGE advantage. If possible, you should take your OAT by June and turn in your application on the very first day it becomes available. " Report Response
