MCO Admittance Interview

Is an interview required for acceptance into the class? Yes.

What is the interview day like? Arrange your schedule so that you can spend a half day at MCO if you are a Ferris student and a full day if you are a non-Ferris student. As part of the interview process, you will be expected to meet with the Associate Dean, to receive a tour of MCO (if a Ferris student) and MCO and FSU tour (if a non-Ferris student), have a 45 minute interview with three members of the Admissions Committee, and have an interview and informational session with and MCO Student Ambassador. The tours will be provided by current students of MCO.

Do you have any advice for my interview preparation? Don't over prepare. Be prepared to explain exactly why optometry is your profession of choice, and be ready to explain any low grades, or low section scores of your OAT score, if applicable. Most importantly try to relax, smile, and be yourself!!!
