Choosing your professional school is one of the biggest decisions we make and should definitely be done with our head, not our heart.
To me, the WICHE option makes this an obvious decision.
I have to agree. You will be surrounded by students that are not as intelligent as you at IAUPR (unless this is what you desire). You should go to an established school and not one that the average GPA is 3.0 and OAT 290. Most of the students that go there don't even take the boards because they want to practice in PR. They are much less strict about optometry in PR. In any case, you can learn Spanish in any major city. I lived in a Spanish neighborhood in NYC and I learned how to speak it somewhat.
