    Summary of Application Experience

    Working on it. Behind as expected. waiting for verification of transcripts. still not verified. I'm traveling to africa for the fall so hoping to get secondaries in by september when I leave.

    Behind on essays, I am not as polished a writer as I would like. I, in fact, stink.

    I got 7 LOR, lol

    This is a stressful process.

    submitted 8/5
    verified 8/26

    I'm off to Tanzania for three months. I hope that I can manage the process from there 9/3.

    I'm back on 10/22. So far so good just waiting and now to get ready for first round of 3 interviews.

    12/15 no real luck as yet. I am not getting much love from schools as yet. woe, woe, upon me.

    1/24 so still not in anywhere but at least i am having an interview or two here or there. i probably should have applied to more schools i am now thinking. Hopefully one will come through and desire me.

    So after a stressful run, I am finally accepted somewhere. Even better at a school that is good and i like. I am going to be a doctor, but hasn't sunk in yet.

    decided to go to cornell. should be good.
