    When a school says they accepted 100 applicants. Does that include people who got accepted but declined?

    They normally accept more than the number enrolled.

    if thats the case, does anyone know how big the class is for NECO? Their website says they accept 100+. So if their class size is 100, they should grant more than 100+ admissions

    thanks for the link. So They accept 222 hundred people last year and only 110 decided to go. I guess the key question is, how many people do they interview?

    according this their website, they interviewed 265 students. And according to the link icu provided, they accepted 222 students. Am I wrong? So chances are pretty good:)

    from last year's stats, it does look like the chance of acceptance after interview is good, but you also have to consider that it is VERY late in the cycle and we dont know how many seats have been accepted. I dont want to kill or bring anyone's hope up too high but most schools are full by now and are interviewing for their alternatives.

    hey,

    How come the GPA requirement is so low ?

    Can I get my Doctor of Optometry from NECO and work in Canada ?


    Thanks
