SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I heard UHCO is well short of filling their usual 100 seats. If UHCO is having trouble filling seats what about the newer schools? Anybody else heard anything on this matter? State schools with fewer seats and big scholarships won't have any trouble. But, I definitely see number of seats being filled decreasing for private colleges with 70+ seats. NECO is asking for help recruiting with new social media website and advertising on Boston's trolleys to recruit students. What? Do you think some of these schools will become like the carribean med schools which constantly advertize to recruit enough students to fill their pockets. I think desire to pursue optometry among college grads (compared to medicine or density ) is slowly on the decline with the new schools and high tuition. I don't think schools can keep lowering their standards every year just to fill seats.
