    Applying for optometry but don't have work experience, the ucas deadline is obviously in January but the internal one is tomorrow, should I finish my personal statement off and apply without experience or delay, get experience and then apply?

    ps. everyone who's doing optometry in my college are sending their applications through tomorrow even those who don't have work experience

    Hi there!:hi:

    I've popped your thread into this sub-forum so you should hopefully get the replies you're after.

    I'm not sure how relevant experience is to optometry because I'm not an expert, but the sample PS I found on TSR's database didn't even mention it.
