    Summary of Application Experience

    So I had to apply to a ton of schools, because my fiance (now husband) was applying to law school at the same time. If I had the choice I would definitely apply to less - it was sooo expensive and time-consuming!

    Other than that I would just advise everyone to stay with a med. student if the school offers a hosting program. It was the best way to get a feel for their quality of life and at some schools, the only significant amount of time we had to speak with them.
