    How hard is it to get into Optometry school

    Advertisements



    Just curious if anybody knows how hard it is to get into Opt school.
    What kind of stats do you need , Oat scores, etc.? Also I couldn't find any data in my quick search to find out what the average admission stats are. I am not seriously considering it, I was just curious.

    It's easy... everyone knows that haha. Why do you think people even consider it? It's almost like going to a Carib med school... except you get an american degree with a mundane redundant life afterwards... who would want that?! I worked for an optometrist for 1.5 years... and I KNOW how boring it is. so I'm starting med school in jan. hope this helps.

    Someone told me that if you can't get into a med school, there's always alternatives like optometry. I thought this was condescending to the optometrists out there, especially the ones who wanted to be one all along.
