    Summary of Application Experience

    primary submitted-6/4
    processing complete-6/9

    I applied early because I know my numbers suck. I've gotten 10 secondaries so far (which I submitted the day of, or the day after receiving them) and rejected from one school pre-secondary. six more secondaries to go and then I'm crossing my fingers for an interview!

    7/21/08: I got my albany and rosalind franklin secondaries today! 4 more to go!

    7/25/08: Feinberg secondary received today. 3 more!

    7/30/08: Finished my Rush secondary today but I can't mail it until I have a copy of my passport...which is at home =(. Hopefully it'll be sent soon!

    8/11/08: Received and submitted the Drexel secondary.

    8/12/08: Received the Loyola secondary! yay I made it past the screen!!! Once this one is done, ALL my secondaries will be finished and I can just sit back (yeah right) and wait for interview invites!

    8/21/08: I'm complete at all my schools!!

    As you can see, I got rejected from all my schools. I will be doing an SMP in August- MAMS at Loyola. Hopefully my next app cycle in 2011 will be more successful. Good luck everyone!
