Just wondering, how many canadian students out there applied/attending OD schools in the states? I live in Vancouver, anyone else live in van that goes/applied?
For some reasons..I find it hard for students in my univeristy to apply of Optometry schools due to the pre-req and the lack of labs offered.. ANyone else has that problem as well?:confused:

I am also from Vancouver and ended up applying to 3 schools in the US. I was close to going to one of them but I ended up deciding to go Waterloo. I don't really regret it and the system here has really changed in the past 2 years. If you have any questions, msg me. I also know quite a bit of friends from Van who are doing Opt in the US.
