I just wrote out my deposit check. How did you let them know of your intent to enroll. Did you send a letter along with the check?

I sent the check in with a letter saying that I would be attending there in the fall.

I live near St. Louis in the metropolitan area. Its not nearly as busy as the city but still a short 15 minutes away of course that is without rush hour traffic.

Awesome. Its nice to meet two people going to UMSL. I'm not from St. Louis, but I am currently living here. My fiance decided to go to Wash U law, and I liked the city so I moved here with him. I'm so glad they have an Opt. school. Semopreod - I read you're response on "Why Optomety?" and I have to agree. I work in an ED and every doc I work with says if they could do it again they wouldn't. They work horrible hours and they are high stress. Everyday I work, something happens that is stressful for the doc and the nurse. The patients' lives are at risk and so many things don't go as planned. It's for some people - but not me. I'm attending UMSL this fall.

Oh, and I heard you mention their egos. Not all of them that I work with, but most of the trauma residents (not the actual attending trauma surgeons), have major egos. And a couple of the attending ED docs, one who obtained their degree from the Carribean (but he is still a pretty good doc). All of the Optometrists I see are low stress and friendly. That was a major factor in my choice of Optometry.
