    Summary of Application Experience

    Key for Above Symbols:

    C-When I have received e-mail confirmation that my application is Complete.
    IO-Date of interview invitation
    I-Date of interview

    I completed my primaries through AAMCAS and AACOMAS as soon as they became available. I have already sent transcripts to their services, and have collected all of my letters of recommendation through Interfolio, except one. I will eventually have 6 total from 2 science professors, 1 from pre-med advisor, 2 physicians, and 1 non-science professor.

    Of course I'm a little nervous, but I believe that everything happens for a reason. Can't wait to see where I end up!...hoping for VA (in-state). May God bless me throughout this process!

    7/2: Received invitation to fill out secondary from VCOM. VCU says that they received my primary and will scan through it. GW says that they have received my secondary. I received that last letter of recommendation I was waiting for. Phew! Completed Georgetown's secondary.I wonder how long it will take for AMCAS to receive my letters and send them to institutions? Why did they have to start a new Pilot Letters Program during my application year? Started to work on VCOM's Secondary....4th of july is gonna slow down the mail service...grr
    7/3: Jefferson has received everything to make my application complete! UVA sent out an email saying that there was a glitch in their system and to make sure they received my secondary. Hope they did!..and yes, they did receive it.
    7/4: Happy 4th of July! Everyone's closed today. I finished VCOM's secondary. Will mail that out tomorrow.

    7/22: Recieved EVMS secondary! Yay! Another top choice.
