I have a friend, that just kinda decided to seriously looking to becoming an OD. The problem is that, he has met all of the pre-req requirement creidts, but 2 of his courses are under a C grade... Hes in his third year now and is planning on upgrading both next year (i.e. in his fourth)... My question is, would those pre-reqs actually be considered "done" and factored into his application, or will schools wait for his new marks next year? If its the later, is it possible to get accepted with out them done, and then finish them before you actually start the program?
