    Summary of Application Experience

    5/01 - Took the MCAT! Feeling pretty good about it, but I think I choked a little in writing. Oh well!
    6/01 - Got my score! 39O! Woot! Writing\'s kinda crappy but it shouldn\\\'t negatively affect my application!
    6/07 - AMCAS submitted. Yikes!
    6/15 - All transcripts recreived. Now I wait.
    6/28 - YAY! My alma mater screwed up my transcript! Resending.
    7/01 - All transcripts received... again.
    7/02 - VERIFIED!
    7/06 - Received secondaries from Penn and Temple. It just got WAY too real!
    7/08 - Received secondary from Jefferson.
    7/17 - Submitted Penn secondary.
    7/21 - Submitted Temple secondary.
    7/21 - AACOMAS verified!
    7/22 - Submitted Jefferson secondary.
    7/28 - Received PCOM secondary.
    8/09 - Interview invite at Jefferson! Eeeee!
    8/12 - Received Drexel secondary.
    8/26 - Submitted Drexel secondary.
    9/13 - Finally marked as complete at Drexel.
    9/29 - Jefferson interview! I loved it there but I\'m not very happy with my interview. I think I let me nerves get the better of me.
    10/01 - Temple interview invite! YAY!
    10/04 - Drexel interview invite! Wow!
    10/18 - High priority waitlist e-mail from Jefferson. This really hurts. I\'m hoping and praying they decide to smile on me later.
    10/26 - Temple interview! I went in liking Temple and came out LOVING it! Everyone was really down to earth, chill, friendly, and enthusiastic about the school. I wasn\'t even too scared of the \'hood. I think my interviews went a lot better, too. I hope I hear something before Thanksgiving!
    11/16 - Deferred at Penn. Boo! Maybe they\'ll change their mind.
    11/24 - Accepted to Temple! Oh my God! Ahhhhh!!!! Happy Thanksgiving to me!
    12/04 - Interviewed at Drexel. It was alright.
    01/26 - Rejected by Penn. This comes as no surprise. I\'m not even the slightest bit upset about it after being accepted to Temple. I plan on bothering them in 4 years for residency, though.
    02/17 - Got the acceptance letter from Drexel. Feels good, man!
    03/07 - Temple wants to give me $20,000 a year! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
    03/14 - Withdrew from Drexel. I preferred Temple and was going to wait until financial aide packages went out, but after the scholarship from Temple, there was no point in waiting.
    06/29 - Finally withdrew from Jefferson\'s high-priority waitlist today. I think, had I expressed interest in coming off the WL here, I would have (they really like it when you express continued interest if you\'re waitlisted here). But I hadn\'t sent an update or anything since my interview at and acceptance to Temple. I\'ve been meaning to do this for awhile, as I\'ve been set on Temple for months.

    I\'m happy to consider my application cycle over. It was a wild ride! Fight fight fight for the cherry and the white!
