Summary of Application Experience
8/27 Starting to get nervous, still have not received any interviews :(
Got my first rejection today...I was expecting it though. Oh well maybe I will get interviews soon...
8/30 I got my first interview!! I was so not expecting it from them, but yea University of Chicago!!!
9/13 I was starting to get nervous having not received any more interviews (especially from my state schools). Today I got an invite from University of Rochester so my hopes are high again!
9/20 I was put on hold today at GW and rejected yesterday from Georgetown...looks like I won't be heading to DC at all. I guess I am lucky so far, considering my MCAT scores to have three interviews...all you need is one acceptance. I am anxiously waiting from the Boston schools...my sister is up there and it is another one of my top choices.
9/26 Received an interview from Columbia! I was NOT expecting this, but I am very excited. I loved the curriculum when I went up there last year!
10/13 So I have been on two interviews so far. They went pretty well, I guess just have to wait and see, right? I got an interview at Tufts so I will be heading to Boston in November! cold :)
10/20 Yea! I got an interview at NYU. I am feeling good about these interviews I just need to get into a school now!!
10/28 I got into Pritzker!!!!! Med school here I come!!!!!!
11/22 I got into Miami and Rochester!!! I think I might be withdrawing my acceptance from Rochester though mostly because of location. I really liked the curriculum and people there but as a Floridian I can't see myself living on the border of Canada!!
12/1 Just got back from Boston...really like both schools. We def consider if I got into any. I also received a Drexel interview I am declining it and I am thinking about withdrawing from my USF interview...I know I would def pick Chicago or Miami over those.
