My friend was accepted to the POP program as well..its a year of classes that comprises of the tough classes from the first year curriculum and three other ones.i was actually accepted to the POP program but declined it because of offers from other schools. Its basically like a trial first year. YOu have to meet certain requirements such as <80 or even <90 in certain classes. If you meet those requirements u can contiue to matriculate into the second year. if not, you just lost your first years tuition and time.
No the POP program is actually an undergraduate program - you're not technically accepted to the optometry program until you complete the POPS program succesfully with a 3.0 GPA.is that the 5 year program they offer for optometry students? I thought it was pretty cool of NOVA to come up with that.
