This question is for current/former UC Berkeley students only please. How would you describe the academic environment at Berkeley optometry school? Are most of the students pretty laid back, or are most of them pretty competitive? Undoubtedly, the students there are highly motivated... Are many of them boastful and arrogant? Unbalanced and study constantly? OR are they balanced, happy, and humble? I know it depends on the class and the individuals, but before I apply, I would like to know if it has the sort of environment that would suit me.
