Summary of Application Experience
AMCAS Submitted: June 18th AMCAS Confirmed: July 8th
09/02: Pre-interview hold @ Penn State
09/03: Moved to a 'smaller pool of applicants who potentially will be invited to interview with us' at MCW and U of Vermont. Ummmmm....yay? Doubt it. Also on pre-interview hold @ SUNY Upstate.
12/17: Finally! After three months of straight rejections and holds I got an interview @ Michigan State!
3/16: Third interview over the phone with Michigan State. Knowing that this is the only shot that I have at being in school next year made me incredibly nervous and I think it came across during the interview. It was far from ideal, but not horrible. Now I pray....
4/8: Waitlisted at MSU...
6/12: Accepted after months of agony! Pretty much in shock right now...
