    I am a senior in high school and will be attending a CC next year. I was hoping to complete most/all of the opt. requirements at the CC until I read on here that some schools look down on classes that are taken at CCs. What should I do?

    You should contact the schools of optometry that you are considering and ask them their policy.

    You should contact Berkeley. I would not rely on information posted by people you don't know on an internet forum for this kind of information.

    ^^^ I agree, when it comes to something this important you have to contact the schools directly. I don't know why people on this forum are so afraid to call and ask the admissions people their questions. They really are there to help you!
