I think there are not many people who speak spanish here, and that is a must for that school !!

hey i applied to puerto rico and did not do an interview. i already got accepted and they do their interviews via skype. you don't need to know a lick of spanish to go to puerto rico. I spoke with the dean of admissions, majority of the students that attend there do not know any spanish. however, you are required to do a comprehensive eye exam in spanish but they teach you all that. It is always a plus to be bilingual even if you're not fluent in it. you can check out their youtube video i think its posted on their website or type in inter american univeristy of puerto rico and it shows you the school and students.

I think you are talking about a different school. We are talking about dental school of the University of Puerto Rico. I believe you are talking about the optometry school, at a totally different school.

You have posted in incorrect thread. Your other post is in optometry forum, but this is dental forum.
To clarify, Spanish proficiency is a must here and they take personal interview in Spanish only.
