Hi everyone, I don't know if this is where to post this, but if I wanted to major in Biological Arthropology, can I still be an optometrist? Thanks.
(Yes, I'm aware that this question sounds stupid)
Oh I know, but does it affect anything? At all?
(Now I feel really stupid lol)
I don't think it effects anything.
A graduate or a student in optometry school could better answer your other question. However, I'd recommend taking the easiest major possible, like math or something.
But, I guess a biology degree would help you in optometry school, since some courses that you would take in undergrad, such as Anatomy/Physiology, come up again in optometry school.
as far as I know, and have asked around (asking actual schools), NO... therefore, it does not work against you or in your favor (they don't think you stand out good/bad because you are the only one applying with a different major). They just care about your pre-reqs.
that sucks, because science majors require more work.
i agree. I am a bio major with a minor in chemistry and was thinking of adding neurobio as my second minor or bio emphasis... but since they dont care--i decided not to add the neuro... also, i was recommended by the schools not to add the minor/emphasis and to just focus on getting good grades on my pre-reqs because they wont be looking at any of that
So then what's the point of taking an additional 90 credits of courses? Seriously...they actually belive we, the students, enjoy school!
You gotta be kidding me. I mean, I've seen profiles of entering classes of some schools, and one of the schools had a student with a masters degree.
