    Summary of Application Experience

    08/06 Only two more secondaries to complete! I\'m so excited to have a life again soon.

    09/12 Had my first couple interviews recently, and they have been absolutely terrific. Everyone gets there a little intimidated and anxious, but I feel that the fears were just in our heads - all the doctors, the admissions officers, the students were extremely friendly, enthusiastic, and surprisingly honest. I really enjoyed my visits and I think almost all the other interviewees would say the same.

    10/13 If anyone has any questions or is looking for a little advice, please feel free to include an email address with your question/comment. I simply won\'t publicize that specific post to preserve anonymity, and will try to reply within a couple days.

    5/14 I\'ve obviously dragged this process out quite long enough, but it\'s finally decided. I\'m. so. Happy!! :)

    Best of luck to everyone else out there!

    06/13 Removed a bunch of info from my profile. Now that med school\'s just around the corner, I reaaaally would prefer not to be identified.
