I have some exciting news: I GOT ACCEPTED INTO OPTOMETRY SCHOOL!!! I had my interview at the University of Missouri St. Louis on Friday, and I got an email offering me admittance the same day. I am so excited to embark on this journey! I still can’t believe that this is finally happening. I have been preparing for so long. The interview process was actually really fun too. We got to meet current students and throw all of our billions of questions about optometry school, UMSL, St. Louis, and themselves at them. They were all so friendly and welcoming, and they were more than happy to share all of their experience and knowledge with us. The interview was pretty relaxed too. It was just a really natural conversation about myself and why I wanted to be an optometrist really. Anyways, I’m just really excited to start school next year!
