There is never a question that is stupid only the people that think they are too cool to answer. Sorry, I don't know enough about the above school, but if you want to know more about SCCO, I can tell you why it is the best school in mine eyes.
You people are cruel. It was a serious question.... that deserves a serious response. Hopefully some of the immaturity and cruelty will show through when you all apply to schools. If you think its a stupid question, keep it to yourself and dont waste your time making some rude remark. Grow up people. I hope these terrible and snotty attitudes are not going to follow me to optometry school.
Opt schools do not have an official ranking like most programs of study. I would recommend visiting the schools website. There, you can request more info from the schools (usually a mailed packet). You might also want to call each school that has caught your interest for more information. The admissions department is there to give you information about the schools, so hit them up! They usually are very receptive to potential students.
The question deserved the remarks it got because a) There are students here from both schools, and to say one is "better" than the other is rude. b) Since there isn't a rating system, there are obviously different factors involved for the reasons people want to go to different schools.
The attitude only comes towards lazy people who choose not to do their own research on schools and the application process.
By the way, other than verbally spanking us, you didn't really answer the question with any type of certainty either.
I still think all questions are valid, but not all questions might be valid to 100% of the crowd. I choose to respond to this one because I see a break down in communication between two parties. Imagine being a doctor presently and a patient or a friend comes into your office and asks you a question that may seem a little silly according to you, what would you do? Would you choose to not respond or would you really try to listen to the meaning more than the wording? These forums are one method of practicing our etiquette when asking and responding to questions. Do we want to portray ourselves as the know it all Doctors and only respond to questions that we think are intelligent or do we try to find out what they are really asking us. On the other hand when asking a question such as the one above, a little more preparation would be in order. One example could be: "I have been researching a the above two schools and found out that the location of each...and the tuition of each...and the faculty of each...could some one help me find more information on community surrounding the campus...or help me with residency programs offered by the schools... or those that applied could you tell me the reasons that you applied to such and such school..." Again I don't know too much about these schools, but maybe some of these example questions could initiate some conversation.
Thank you Serratiowank and pienfoo for your responses and support. I really feel sorry for you blysssful and kengari and I really feel sorry for a country that you are going to be a healthcare profession and a doctor. If u think questions are stupid how are u gonna deal with diverse population of patients that may not be as SMART AS u R??Your attitude toward a simple question is really silly not my question. If you dont like the question DO NOT ANSWER! Nobody asked U! dont have any kindness in your heart. I did not want to be offensive in any ways.. I have done my research and that did not answer all my question. I have no idea why u think this question is stupid since I have seen lots of people pose these kind of questions. I just wanted to know the opinion of people about these school. I wasnt more specific because I wanted to people give their honest opinion about different aspects of these two schools. Again, if u dont like the question DONT BOTHER. I HAVE A PIECE OF RECOMMENDATION FOR U !BEFORE EBCOMING A DECOTOR U NEED TO EBCOME A HUMAN AND BECOME MORE OPEN MINDED!
