    Summary of Application Experience

    Two rejections from like waaay high tier be expected (probably will get rejected from Northwestern, too). Here's hoping for interviews from the rest!!! :)

    Okay, it's been a while, but a LOT has happened! 4 interviews, one more coming up, one wait-list (SIU), and three acceptances (Loyola, Iowa, and Rosalind Franklin), so wooohooo!!! I'M GOING TO BE A DOCTOR!!! I don't know where I want to go, though. So far, it's between Iowa and Loyola, and man it's going to be a tough choice!!!

    Another update...I've officially heard from everywhere now. 5 acceptances, 1 waitlist, 1 withdraw after secondary, and 5 rejections. I've eliminated U Iowa, Rosalind Franklin, and UIC (I didn't get into the Chicago campus) from the final roster, so it's now down to Loyola and Med. College of Wisconsin...boy this is a tough (but awesome) choice!
