I actually have been in contact with many of the eye institutes and hospitals around my area; I am planning to hopefully be able to shadow and work with the doctors, which I am very excited for!
That sounds great, wow Berkeley! Berkeley would be my dream college to go to in the States, but I have heard it is very competitive to be accepted into. In high school so far, I have taken the highest courses I can take and manage a 4.0 GPA, not yet weighted with honors and AP courses. I will be taking the SAT soon this year, so hopefully those will turn out well. Congrats on getting into Berkeley, the number one optometry school in the US! That is a great achievement that I strive to achieve as well.
