What are your general comments?

"I thought that the interview went well. It should not be something that you would have to prepare extensively for. If preparation is done, though, I would recommend one mock interview, thinking about your reason for becoming an optometrist, and looking over your application (so you are prepared when they review your file after the one-on-one interview). Also, I would recommend researching some things about optometry currently to make sure you are up-to-date on it." Report Response
