    Summary of Application Experience

    August 2008: Shouldn't have applied to so many places but I guess you never know what will happen.

    December 2008: BCM acceptance! This is a big deal. I am tired of interviewing and will therefore withdraw my application from places that I would not go to over Baylor. Considering everything (e.g. medical school's ranking history, prestige of affiliated hospitals, curriculum, location, and cost) I can narrow it down to just Harvard and Hopkins as places that I would seriously consider going to over Baylor. So, I'll keep my application open at those 2 places.

    March 2009: It looks like Harvard and Hopkins won't give me an interview since its already March now, so BCM it is!

    Advice to future applicants: keep it simple.
