Pre-Optometry
I just got my grades for fall quarter and I received a C and C- in two of my classes that are pre-reqs. I got some interview invitations but I was wondering how much grades affect your chance of acceptance after you've already e-submitted. I'm not going to do the academic update. Do schools care about your grades after they accept you or does it not matter as long as you pass?

I was accepted by Nova a month ago while still finishing anatomy. My acceptance said that I must receive a C in this prereq. My understanding is this is the same for all these schools and that you must update optomcas by February 15th.

i don't think you HAVE to do the academic update. It's only if you would like to update it I think...but please correct me if I'm wrong.

i'm pretty sure they will want the grades of all prerequisites - especially ones you just finished in the fall

I think you have to update grades as well. Also, some of the schools I was accepted to had the condition that my grades for senior year had to be up to the level of my previous academic work-not just passing. So, I think it really depends on the school as to how they feel about new grades.
