Hi Tyra, I read your post on the MCAT forum about all the "negative comments about optometry." Really? Where? Once in a while we get a troll in here but they usually go away pretty quickly. I've been told (by two different schools, ICO and IU) that there is competition which can be negative between optometrists and mostly primary care opthalmologists but that each relationship is different. I've also been told that more and more opthalmologists are realizing that they fulfill a different niche than optometrists. I have seen this first hand when I've shadowed at hospitals. There's always someone griping about someone's else's health care profession..."Why can't we be friends, why can't we be friends..." I choose to ignore these comments and concentrate on what I love about optometry. The recent interviews I've had have only confirmed my conviction to become an optometrist. As to the OAt prep materials question, you're right. There is sh$t out there for prep stuff. The top score cd has questions that are harder than the OAt, while the Lippincott ones are easier! This is what I did--I bought review books for each individual subject (high yield) and studied my textbooks according to the Lippincott outlines. I also did actual OAt practice tests so I would have some idea of my performance. of course, I don't know how I did yet...so I guess you'll have to take this with a grain of salt. Have a good weekend Eyegirl.
