SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Okay so I was originally applying to Dental schools, and then about a year ago I looked into Optometry school as a backup and decided to apply to both. Lately I have been leaning towards Optometry, however I think part of that was because I didn't even think I would get an interview for Dental school. There are other reasons that Optometry is still higher on my list, however I was wondering what your opinions are. Obviously it will be a little biased towards Optometry on this board, but maybe someone else has made this decision and can help me with what their pros and cons were. At this point I have 3 optometry interviews and I just got my first dental interview, so both are still a possibility.
