    I am currently applying for optometry schools in the 2012 cycle and I have a couple of questions.

    My first is:
    How long (from transcripts being sent) does it take for transcripts to show up on optomcas?

    My second is:
    Have any optometry schools contacted any of you for interviews?

    Thanks so much! This is a very exciting time!

    My transcripts took 3 weeks to appear on OptomCAS. My GPA was just calculated this week and I got an email saying my application will be mailed out to my schools this week! So hopefully we'll be hearing from schools for interviews soon :)

    I was wondering how long after you submitted your application did it take for them to calculate your GPA and receive a conformational email?

    Overall, it took a total of about 4-5 weeks for my transcript, including GPA calculations, to be complete. It really doesn't take long, but it feels like years!

    It took 4 weeks or so for my transcripts to be received and the GPA calculated.

    My OptomCAS was successfully submitted on August 8th and I have been invited to two interviews in the past two days.
