What is Required of You

The HPO Interview

          Interview Worksheet 2017 OPTOMETRY

  • Your HPOdrome BCPM is based on coursework offered and taken at Rutgers, New Brunswick. Your HPOdrome Science GPA (BCPM) should be close but may not be exactly the same when AMCAS calculates it on your verified application.  However your HPOdrome Science GPA will be the one used when considering your qualification for the HPO Committee Interview.    AMCAS standardizes GPAs across many institutions and we are not able to exactly mirror their system.  Your HPOdrome BCPM will not represent your BCPM for osteopathic or dental school because they use different systems to calculate GPAs.  See the HPO DO & Dental Science GPA calcuators below:
