I just had my interview last week at Nova and it was awful. Instead of asking questions regarding my desire to become an optometrist and where I saw myself within the profession like the other schools I interviewed at, I was immediately asked about my grades. (I had a rough start but they got much better after the first year of undergrad and I’m proud of my improvements.) After giving my explanation, I was then asked about things I didn’t mention in my application which I brought up a medical condition and again it was just brushed aside (it’s fine because I’m managing it). The last straw for me was when the interview tried to catch me in a lie when he himself had no idea of my experience. I shadowed 2 doctors, 1 man and 1 woman, that went to SCO but only one wrote a letter for me. When asked about my shadowing I was cut off mid-sentence with “that’s funny because the person that wrote this letter is a she.” It was at that moment I knew I couldn’t attend Nova because I did not feel welcomed and will probably be receiving a rejection letter soon. Has anyone else had a negative experience interviewing that turned you off from one of your top choices.
