    Summary of Application Experience

    06/13/08: took my MCATs. Friday the 13th, baby. I felt like total crap afterwards. I kept on getting distracted during my verbal section by people walking into the testing station. There was hardly an orgo and i felt like i completed bombed the writing section. I just wanted to curl up in a big ball and cry.

    07/14/08: Got my scores back. 30Q (8VR, 12PS, 10BS) was better than i thought i did but not what i was hoping for (at least a 33)


    AAMC 3: 11 PS, 8 VR, 10 BS
    AAMC 7: 10 PS, 7 VR, 10 BS
    AAMC 5: 10 PS, 9 VR, 9 BS
    AAMC 6: 11 PS, 11 VR, 11 BS
    AAMC 4: 12 PS, 9 VR, 11 BS
    AAMC 8: 12 PS, 7 VR, 10 BS
    AAMC10: 10 PS, 5 VR, 10 BS
    AAMC 9: 10 PS, 10 VR, 10 BS

    I seem to make a lot of stupid mistakes and I can\'t seem to learn from them. (I\'ve taken practice tests from Peterson\'s and Barron\'s but nobody uses those anymore so I didnt record my scores... but I averaged 31\'s for those...)

    2/02/09 - Interview with VCU. i thought it went over pretty well. i just didnt like the fact that the interviewer repeatedly kept on cutting me off when i was giving answers.

    03/21?/09 - notified by VCU that i was on the waitlist

    04/24/09 - gone to EVMS for preview week. Party it up with the prospective students for next year. they\'re all really coool

    04/24/09 - notified by VCU that i was accepted from the waitlist
