Need some info
I am a Junior biology student going to Pitt-Bradford. I was just looking for some info on the optometry programs. Like OAT strategies, when to take the OATs, and applying to optometry schools.
Basically I am not sitting very well:
I have a 2.6 GPA, I am very good at Biology but not so great at Chem had to retake it a couple times. Actually just chem 1 i did very well at chem 2. I will not be taking ochem until my senior year an I am currently taking physics which I am not too bad at.
Basically my GPA is really bad because I had a 1.9 for one semester my uncle passed away and I had to leave school a week before break and then ended up taking 4 exams in two days which basically tanked my grades. The semesters before that werent great but good and every semester after that have been good.
I plan on staying here for a 5th year to finish up my degree here so I still have time to bring my GPA up and I am willing to do post bacc (if anyone has any info on post bacc programs). After that I am looking to stay close to the pittsburgh area because I am from there, so Ohio and Salus would be my top options.
Any help would be appreciated thanks everyone
