    My friend is applying to OD school. During which months are the majority of the interviews held? When is the last month schools give out acceptances? Are waitlists hard to get off?

    Thanks in advance for any info.....

    hard to answer when the majority are
    interviews usually go from november until april
    you'll probably be on a waitlist if you have an interview in april or end of march.....depends on the school...its just that as the application process goes on you have to be more competitive...or thats what they say

    i applied late and interviewed in march and i was fine with acceptances...maybe they only accept a certain amt of ppl each month? not sure how it works

    most OD schools are rolling admission.. the longer you wait.. the harder it gets.
