Does anyone know if the school you choose to attend affect your chances of getting a job? For example, if you choose to attend NECO, will you have a better chance of getting a job than if you choose to attend ICO?
Do employers look differently upon which school you graduate from?

no, defiitely not. i talked about this extensively with the dr. i had my interview with at pco, and he assured me an OD degree at neco is equivalent to an OD degree at ico, pco, or any other institution. once you get the paper, you are on a level playing field with everyone else who has the paper (except, of course, if you have residency experience, as that may play a factor). ;)
