Please ask Dr. Cockrell the influence that the AOA has on new school openings. There is a DO school in our state who is estatic about forming a committee to investigate a new Optometry school. I had asked the dean particulars, he did not care about the profession, just the new tuition moneys that would grace his school and reputation on expanding his global healthcare institution (which has a school of Pharmacy, PA school, Nursing school and a PT school).
