Pre-Optometry Journey and Questions
SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
I recently took the OAT and scored:
science score: 370
test score: 360
(no review guides or anything... just off lecture slides/notes)
On top of that... I have a decent GPA (3.7 on a 4.0 scale) at University of Toronto.
- entering 3 year
- 16 of my 32 courses were lab courses (3-4 hours weekly labs)
- physiology and microbiology was a third year course with 3 hour lab (opposed to others... first year course with no lab)
- all pre-reqs completed
I was wondering do they consider what courses a student takes and how it impacts the amount of time they have for EC. Year to year I average 20-30 hours of classes per semester with almost 2 hours commute per day. (DEATH.) I have lots of EC when I was in high school, but literally none when university arrived.
Only experience I have is working with a physiotherapist lol... But I am actively looking for an optometrist to shadow.
If I were to apply to U of Waterloo, are my chances low? (lack of EC?)

You know if you were applying to anywhere but Waterloo I'd ridicule you for being too overqualified of an applicant but I'd say you are above average for Waterloo and you stand a good chance of getting in. Good luck!
