I know this is the forum for OD students I would like to get some advice from all of you because I am so lost at the moment and this is driving me nuts- not being able to sleep well. as you can see its 4AM now..... I am in my last year in a health science undergrad and my CGPA is 3.25, but the pre req average should be around 80%, I have two science undergrads- one in bio that's not too high though 3.0 I think and psychology is 3.50. I will be writing the OAT once in August hopefully and another in November depending on my marks. I have a lot of community involvement and leadership roles in committees. I would really appreciate it if you wrote about your own info so that I have a good idea on what I should focus on this year. After I graduate, I will use that year to prepare myself to get into Optometry so PLEASE give me advice. Should I do a master in vision science or work as an optometrist assistant or work as a research assistant in a vision related lab? What should I do to increase my chances of getting in? I am so lost here. Please share your stories with us or give me suggestions on how I can improve. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!
