    Pre-Optometry
    hi,
    i'm in the process of getting my 2007 application ready. But since i'm not in same city as my University, I can't get LOR's from my professors. So, I was wondering if you can apply and send in applications without LORs and still be considered (ie. be offered an interview). There are schools who consider without OAT, so I was hoping you guys would know whether or not it's the same for LORs.

    Thanks!
    (if there are any other Canadians on SDN, I'd love to know how you're choosing US schools - especially those on the West Coast, who can't really afford the possibilty of having to pay for flights to east coast schools in the US)

    do you have a letter writing service at your school?

    these six must have a complete file to interview: UCBSO, SCCO, Pacific, UHCO, IU and SUNY.


    your going to have to call each school you want to apply to and ask their policy.

    your LOR are a very important part of your application, so good luck getting them in :luck:

    Add NOVA to that list as well,

    A complete application is required before an applicant can be considered. This includes the application form, application fee, a complete set of official transcripts, official Optometry Admission Test scores, and letters of evaluation.
