Hey Antonio, I'm so glad it went well. The people I know who were interviewing where a great group of people. I'm actually interviewing the perspectives next weekend (the 17th). Let me know what they say and definitely let me know if you have any more questions about UHCO.
Good luck, this is the worst part (waiting by the mailbox)!

I think the number I've heard is around 15, but that was last Friday and they might have added more by now. They'll let me know at the end of the week (so that I know whether they'll actually need me to interview)
I'll keep you posted. They'll have a few more interview days in early Spring semester too. But, you should definitely know before then.

I am asking because I have an interview in Chicago Illinois and I don't know if to go ASAP or wait until Jan. for the response of U of H. With the airlines and everything going on, I don't know if its safe.

Well, if you're in state to UHCO and it's where you really want to go it all depends on how confident you are in your admission. I'm not going to tell you whether to go to ICO or not, because that's really not my call. If it were me, I'd probably go just in case.

I found out the final count on number of interviewee's for tomorrow (saturday).

22


I'm interviewing three people tomorrow and then having lunch with them to answer questions. Then, I go back to my hole in the library. (where I've been most of the night) [sigh] gotta love the end of the semester.
;)

Hello cpw
Wow its not that many? I am curious about your weekly schedule. Do you have class everyday and until what time? Do you study every day and if so do you stay studying up real late? I am just curious.
Thank you for responding

Hey vasquez32, I don't know if you do this already or not, but you should read cpw's online diary, it gives you a perspective on an optometry students' life.

We do have class every day. Six classes and five labs. 20 hours of credit. I'm in lecture every morning 9 to noon. I have labs in the afternoon. Every afternoon except wednesday. We have labs til four every day except one day of the week we have two labs so we go after lecture from 1-7pm.

I try to study every day. You pretty much have to in order to keep up. Falling behind is about the worst thing you could ever do. I'm not just saying that cuz it sounds good... if you fall behind, there are too many classes to try to catch up in every class a week before a test. It's nothing like undergrad.
