I have so many questions I want to ask regarding optometry school, but I think I'll start with asking some of you what school is like. What do you do on an average day? How many hours do you spend studying, etc? I've shadowed and OD, but he went to school quite a while ago, and couldn't answer many of my questions regarding school. I would appreciate any input. Thanks.

well, if you want to experience OD school first hand.. I'd recommend reading my OD student diary..

<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/odgirl" target="_blank">OD Student Diary</a>

Then, if you have questions about specific things feel free to ask! My typical day is three hours of lecture, lunch, and three hours of lab. But, it's all detailed in the diary. My whole first semester is there and I'm starting on the second.
Happy reading! Ask lots of questions.. that's what I'm here for! :D (and all the other OD students I'm sure will pipe in too!)
