^^^When I interviewed at Nova I remembered the assistant dean saying that last year's board pass ratings increased significantly from previous years to 89%.
Oh btw, how did your interview go? What were your impressions of the school?

hey! my interview went really well. I loved the school the minute I saw it. Everyone there was nice, and just made the whole experience a really good one. So far, I've seen PCO and NOVA, and Im leaning towards NOVA if I get accepted. Im supposed to find out Tuesday...

One of the main deciding factors for me is the board pass rate, and I cant really seem to get too much info about NOVA. All the dean said at the interview was that only one person failed last year....or something like that. i was impressed with the dress code policy.. the facilities..the eye clinic..

also i think the location of the university is close to evertying.. grocery store, mall.. airport.. it would be easy for me to get around since i probably wont be bringing a car there..

what were your impressions?

I really like the school. The only thing that concerned me going into the interview was the school's low board pass ratings of the past. But I heard that they changed some things around in the program to really help out with the board scores. Last year's pass ratings was 89%.

I also like the facilities and everyone is so nice there. It seems like a place where they really help you get the most out of your education. Also, you can't beat the weather there. Well, maybe I'll see you come August.

so which school will u choose?

i dont know yet - i also have an interview at NECO on March 19th. I think I am interested in their O.D/MS degree.. so I want to get some more information on that..

... i really dont know yet! :scared:


i liked NOVA better because I feel it is more accessible, and there are more things to do around the city.. but PCO has a good reputation of having a high board pass rate, and excellent clinical exposure.
