On hold

Discussion in 'Optometry' started by Eyegirl2007, Oct 7, 2002.

  1. I got my ICO letter today.

    I'm on hold till they get my OAT scores. I guess I should have expected that....but a small part of me was thinking...maybe they'll accept me without them and just have a stipulation that I have to get such and such a score. Although med school people don't get accepted without MCAT's, grad school without GRE's, dental schools without DAT's etc... so I guess I was kidding myself.

    *Eyegirl unrolls sleeping bag for yet another two months by the mailbox, and adds thermal underwear to her mailbox wardrobe. It's going to be cold and snowy before she gets a happy letter*

    At least they didn't reject me

    :love:
    I love ICO more than ever

    I guess my worry is (and I know I have a lot of them, you guys are so patient), since they have to wait for my OAT scores, does it decrease my chances of getting in?

    Eyegirl.

    I was in the same boat, eyegirl. I was on hold at all three schools I applied to until they got my scores. I didn't even get INTERVIEWS until they got my scores. So, you're doing great to have that all out of the way already. :) I know the wait it excruciating... but it's part of the process. It makes us stronger people while waiting for board scores (me next summer). :eek: :eek:

    Hey Eyegirl --

    It sounds like you're in as soon as they see your OAT scores -- that's terrific! December will be here before you know it, even if it doesn't feel that way right now. Waiting does suck, I totally agree. All that emotional energy, and nothing constructive you can do to affect the outcome -- pretty frustrating.

    But it's all right there in your screenname -- Eyegirl2007 -- this is the year you get in! ;)

    Yes I read your whole post.:laugh:
    I'm just saying that you are not rejected so it looks good so far. I don't even know if I'll get an interview until December.
