I'm just curious... How many people start optometry school with the intention of leaving as soon as/if they get accepted to a different program (say, in medicine, dental, pharmacy, etc.)? I know it's done, I just have no idea how frequently it happens.

No, mpp, you don't count. ;) I'm talking about people who had optometry as a "back-up plan", but are still hoping to get accepted to a different professional program.
