This is a question for anyone who has tested out of the required biological sciences classes in the first year of optometry school. I know that at my undergraduate institution you could take exams for credit in the course as long as you passed it, I believe it was called CLEP (college level examination program). For example, at UMSL in the first semester there is a biochemistry and epidemiology class. I took both of these at my undergraduate school and i wondered if anyone has ever taken advantage of this opportunity or if it even existed at UMSL. I believe this would take away from the disasterous load of courses in the first year but i may be wrong about if the program even exists. Any help is as always much appreciated.
