    Summary of Application Experience

    7/1/08 - AMCAS submitted!
    7/22/08 - AMCAS verified
    Update - 2/14
    My interviews got progressively harder. Robert Wood was the most in depth one I had, and wow, I'm not sure how I did but I definitely would have done worse if I hadn't went to Drexel and UMDNJ beforehand. It lasted about 80 minutes and my interviewer was very sharp and really dug deep to get to know me. My interviewer also gave me a few lessons on ethics/cultural competence issues DURING the interview. I ended up just being very honest about myself. I should be hearing from Drexel soon, the decision should be in the mail. It's getting very hard to concentrate on my classes in the SMP, but I really need to because I'm going to need those grades if I blew all my interviews.

    2/20 - Waitlisted at UMDNJ. Very disappointed.

    2/23 - Waitlisted at Drexel. Have to keep my head up and stay focused.

    2/24 - Wow, what a year. Interview invitation at EVMS. I'm starting to think I'm just a terrible interviewer. I really hope not. It only takes one school to believe in me!!!

    3/4 - EVMS interview. Everyone there was incredibly friendly. Their standardized patient program is amazing!! The interview was very relaxed and interesting.

    3/5 - Rejected from RWJ. Very sad, mainly because I shared a lot of personal stories with my interviewer and he/she seemed really receptive to listening. Also my interviewer was very warm at the end of the interview and seemed to be really interested me. I wonder if that was all a front and I actually came off as a terrible person. The roller coaster year continues.

    4/11 - I'm having a terrible feeling I won't get in anywhere this year.

    6/29 - Accepted to NYMC. Unbelievable.
