Optometry-Specific Resources

The Cornell Health Careers Advising Program provides advising and resources for pre-optometry students. Additionally, the Health Careers Evaluation Committee (HCEC) will write a committee letter (letter of evaluation) for OptomCAS.

  • Please note that not all optometry programs accept letters through OptomCAS.
  • The HCEC does not provide its committee letter to individual schools, only through OptomCAS. Thus, in some cases, applicants need to submit individual letters of recommendation to optometry schools that do not gather letters through OptomCAS.
  • We recommend you research the letter requirements at all target schools before requesting an HCEC letter.
