Hello everyone, I was just wondering if taking this coming spring semester off before starting optometry school in the fall is a bad idea? I have been accepted to NOVA, and I will be attending starting fall 09. However, I will have completed all my pre-reqs by the end of this semester (I applied as 90 + credits) and have nothing further that I'm required to take before starting there. What I was planning on doing was just taking some classes I'm interested in, and just leaving it at that (yes, I have already told NOVA this). The only thing that concerns me is whether or not NOT taking any sciences from next January till optometry school starts is going to hinder me in any way when I start optometry school? Any advice will be appreciated...thanks.
