Summary of Application Experience
Not really a bad experience at all. I did all my applications early and secondaries asap.
I got into Loyola and UCONN by the beginning of November. I got into BU in late March, but decided to still go w/ UCONN since I think their program will be a better fit for me.
My advice would be to try to apply so early as possible, keep organized, and not to stress to much! You do not need a 4.0 and 40 and a cure for cancer to get into schools!
