The New England College of Optometry prepared me well as a future optometrist when it came to the curriculum. However, it is the most expensive optometry school, and while the curriculum was worth it, the experience was not. When you decide to pay $40 grand to an institution, you expect that certain costs will be covered, such as licensing exams, certain equipment required, or even a decent school cafeteria. However, after four years spent at the school, I still cannot fathom where all of our tuition fees really went. I hope for the sake of future students that the school adds more incentives to balance their high price. There is also an extreme lack of diversity, so I hope that more ethnic students are accepted in the future.
