When should we receive our OAT results from the 10/19 test? Do we receive the scores before the Optometry Schools?

Thanks.

I heard that we'd receive the scores the first week or two of December...

PCO told me that I'd probably receive the scores before they did -- or at least I'd get a look at them before they had a chance to review my file. They said that as soon as the scores arrive, they review the files of students that are waiting on them and make a decision as soon as possible.

No, the Optometry schools receive your score first! Then you get them a few days to a week later.

I took the test on 10/19th 2001, and schools had my scores by the last week of November/first week of December.

I think what they must have meant was that I might get a chance to see the scores before they got around to reviewing my file...

The last week of Nov/first week of Dec is both very, very soon and yet so so far away!!!! :rolleyes:

Now *there* is some forward thinking -- actually *calling* the OAT people to find out from them when they will be mailing the scores! ;)

This info is definitely worth a post of its own...
