Has anyone done any of the OD dual degree programs? If so how has it been? Course load? Where was it at? Regrets? Plans for the future?

Many schools offer an OD/MS/MBA/etc, and of the schools that offer it, you must be a certain GPA first year to apply. The course load is manageable- especially for gifted students who have a high GPA first year to begin with. Generally speaking you'll take biostats, ethics, etc to allow you to perform your research/defend your thesis well.
Those who I know who completed the program do not have regrets, and many of them end up going into residency and being leaders in the optometric community.

Not saying it's a good or bad thing, but make sure you're okay with additional exams each semester, performing clinical research, and ultimately defending a thesis before graduation.

Good luck!

Thanks so much for the reply! That helps me to know that I really shouldn’t be too worried about it until the first year of school. Thanks!
