Hi everybody, ive been a lurker on the OD forum forever, but i took it to a new level. Basically, I'm a 3rd year undergrad student and I'm gettin a BSc. in Pharmacology. My grades in first year were 7.4, then a 6.9 in 2nd year (9 point scale) for a cumulative average of 7.15. I think this works out to a GPA of 3.18 (but lets just say 3.10). In Canada, the University of Alberta is recognized for its rigorous undergrad program. We even had a SUNY optometry guy tell us that they look at Alberta graduates more favorably. But still grades are grades In all honesty, is this competitive enough to get into University of Houston, and ICO?
