Attending optometry school but applying to dental school
I have been accepted to and will be attending optometry school this fall. However, dental school has always been my first choice, and optometry school like my plan B. I've shadowed and worked settings with both professions, and I chose optometry as a backup because I've applied three cycles to dental school and failed to get in. My last cycle I got two interviews, but no acceptances.
I can see myself being an optometrist but I still can't help but think about dentistry, hence why I'd like to apply again. So the plan now is that I will start optometry school and drop an application for this cycle. Should I be fortunate enough to get in I will then drop optometry school for dental school.
My biggest question now is whether or not I need to disclose the fact I'll be attending optometry school in my dental application and wether this will be frowned upon. Should I be honest from the get-go or is this not a big deal since people do make a switch from different fields.
