  1. I'm in the same position right now too! I just finished my second year and am having trouble deciding as well. I like the idea of having my own practice and setting my own hours to accommodate my lifestyle because I'm more of a family-oriented person (which is what draws me to both dentistry and optometry). I hope other people who were in a similar situation reply so we can gain more insight into how they decided one profession over the other
  2. Hello, I know that Waterloo outlines a minimum of 8 hours required shadowing an optometrist but I was wondering how many hours is considered ideal? They do point out on the admissions website that most applicants have many more hours than the minimum but I was hoping someone could quantify exactly how many hours candidates normally have when applying. The optometrist I'm shadowing this summer asked me how many hours I would want to spend in the practice so I was hoping someone could help me out, especially if you've already applied or have been accepted to Waterloo! Thanks
  3. Hey does anyone know if UFT has any updates about CR/NCR for the winter 2020 term in relation to admission into the DDS program? I know Western has a statement saying they're still deciding but I couldn't find anything for UFT... Thanks
