    Hey guys,
    I was put on the waitlist for MCPHS optometry without an interview, and I still haven't heard back from them. I was just wondering if anyone has had any updates after being waitlisted with them. How long did you wait for them to get back to you?

    Hi,
    I just got the email yesterday that read ". Congratulations"
    I also got another acceptance letter from Inter American University,PR. Most probably I am going for MCPHS. Good luck to you and keep bugging them about your status.

    Just wondering but where did you go for undergrad? I'm just so surprised you got waitlisted when your gpa was basically perfect...

    Big disparity of GPA and OAT score will send up red flags, especially if a lot of the classes were taken at a community college.

    I emailed them and they said I'm an active applicant on their wait list however the class is full and if someone drops out they'll reach out to me. Idk if I should reapply this coming July or wait? Do U have some kind of suggestions for me?
