SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
I’m not sure if they’ve started yet, but hopefully we get some activity this week, since May 15th was the deadline for people to make their final decisions!I am in the 3rd quartile! I wonder where they are on the list now. I know last year everybody got off the waitlist but, this year is unpredictable
They never told me a specific time, but technically, we can hear back at anytime between now and orientation day in August.Ahh same here, I haven't heard back. Did they say when they were going to start admitting people off the waitlist?

I’m surprised that there hasn’t been more activity given that May 15th has already passed. I know this year is unlike any other, but previous years had consistently been notified as early as early/mid May.
Ah thanks for the update! I'll continue to wait to see what happens. Good luck with everything!Hi all! I just gave them another call and they said the class is pretty much full and it is pretty unlikely that it is going to move. They also said the alternate list is the biggest they've ever seen. I'm going to take a gap year and reapply -- let me know what you guys plan on doing!
I was actually offered priority deferment for Fall 2021 without needing to re-apply, but I’m not really looking forward to waiting another year :/Unfortunately, I don’t have a backup school, so I suppose I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that I’ll hear something by August. If not, optometry school will be put on hold for another year.
I actually wanted to re-clarify my position on the waitlist to give people a better idea of how it’s been working out.
I was told on May 1st that I was put into a special group “above the 1st quartile.” Along with this, I was offered an option for priority deferment SCCO in fall 2021 (meaning I won’t have to re-apply).
