Is it wise to apply to both medical schools and optometry schools at the same time?

So my main goal is medical school. I know that it is difficult to get in and I was thinking that as a back up plan to apply to optometry school. I have not had any volunteer or shadowing experience in the optometry field though. Do you guys think it is a good idea?

    No. You should figure out what you want to do- medicine or optometry- and focus on that. You're picking your career and so I'd figure out what career you want and then become the strongest candidate possible for that career.
