    Summary of Application Experience

    Applied to MST programs only. Pretty excited about the whole research thing.

    Think my primary was verified around June 20th...or somewhere in there? Started getting secondaries back a couple days later, filling them out as they come in. My average turnaround time has been about .5 wks-1 wk I suppose. Looking forward to getting to do some travelling for interviews.

    Comments appreciated!
