    Hello all!
    I am having a hard time deciding on where to go to optometry school. So far, I have been accepted to UIWRSO and Midwestern Chicago College of Optometry. I have an interview with NOVA and ICO coming up very soon and will know all of my acceptances likely by the end of the month. However these matriculation fee deadlines are closing in!

    I am a Canadian citizen and I will be having to take out a hefty loan (Waterloo was not an option with my OAT score). UIWRSO with scholarships and cost of living seems to be the most cost effective. However, Chicago would be the closet to home (and who doesn't love Chicago?).
    Regardless of these factors, I was wondering if anyone on here could shed some light on which schools seem to offer the best/most for their students (assuming I am blessed enough to be accepted to all four). I see conflicting information all over the internet. In addition, I am concerned with how new Midwestern is and its pending accreditation, what are your more experienced thoughts on this?

    Thank you!
