    Hey guys, I have interviews coming up in PCO, NECO, and ICO. Just wanted some last minute advice on what type of questions they might ask or what kind of things they expect from us? Any little info would be appreciated! Thanks!

    PCO:
    What is an optometrist?
    Why not medicine/pharmacy/..?
    How do you envision your career as an optometrist?
    Why PCO? What do you know about our curriculum?
    What was your most/least favorite class?

    ICO:
    Tell me your story.
    What is your greatest accomplishment?
    Why ICO?

    There were more questions, but these are some that I can recall.

    For ICO, you have 10 minutes to write an essay before the interview. So you sit in the room with the other candidates and write it.The question is give me 3 reasons that we have to chose you among other applicants. The actual interview is for about an hour and its so laid back;Tell me about yourself, why optometry and why ICO?

    Thank you so much! I had the interview at PCO about two weeks ago but sitll ahven't heard anything. I had one at NECO last week and they said I should be hearing something soon. Does PCO usually take this long?
