University of Waterloo- Conditional Acceptance to Pharmacy (CAP) Discussion Group of 2017
Hey guys!

Realized I've been late to starting this thread, but better late than never!

I'm a current CAP 2016 student, if you guys have any questions about CAP, the application process, university life, feel free to ask!

Check out the website;
Remember to look at the FAQs section too!

Applications have been open since Oct 6th- they close on February 13th

Don't hesitate, because it's likely that a question you have is the answer someone else needs :)

Waterloo Optometry
Hey there!

I am a current grade 12 student. I was just wondering if anyone can help me figure out if  going into optometry is right for me. I know the only English speaking optometry school is in Waterloo, which is why I'm sort of concerned if I will be able to make it into one of the 90 students that will get accepted. My marks are in the mid-high 90s right now, but nonetheless I'm still scared I won't be able to maintain it in uni.

Are there any optom students that can tell me about their experiences getting into the program and being in the program? The workload, competition, how you managed, the program itself etc. What did you do as your undergrad?

Lastly, this is a silly question, but how often do you have to look at eyes with diseases (like with visuals)? Not sure if I'll be able to get used to those lessons haha...

Thanks a bunch! :)
