Reapplying to Optometry School

Once you are certain that you have not been accepted for the application cycle, make an appointment with either the admissions dean or the staff director of admissions to determine how they believe you may best improve your candidacy. In general, you should expect that some part of your credentials can be strengthened, academic record, OAT score, service to others, leadership, exposure to the optometry profession and interacting with patients. Many students who fervently and passionately pursue the areas pointed out to them in these post-rejection interviews are next year’s success stories. The advisors in the Premedical Studies Program counsel with students to help formulate a plan using the admission officers’ suggestions.
