    Summary of Application Experience

    So my AACOMAS was verified toward the end of August, working on writing secondaries, my committee/DO letters should be going out soon; surprise invite from Nova for an interview today (9/4), haven't even submitted LORs, going down there 9/18, hopefully letters are there by then;
    nova interview done, LECOM next month, need to submit more secondaries

    10/13: submitted secondary to Western U, PCOM, and AZCOM

    10/17: decided to call Nova, found out i was accepted!! and letter was sent 10/10, haven't received it yet; withdraw from MSU-COM and its down to five with Nova my top choice right now

    10/23: Have letter from Nova!

    11/1: withdrawing LECOM, decided Nova was much better fit, probably going, might wait to look at other schools though before I submit

    11/3: accepted to LECOM, guess they didn't get my withdraw e-mail in time

    11/6: rejected AZCOM interview because it was way after Nova deadline

    11/10: Decided on Nova, really liked the school + too late to complete process at other schools before 12/14

    11/20: So I got an interview at PCOM for today and I really liked the school, can't decide between Nova and PCOM, was much easier before when I thought I was done! any input would be appreciated

    11/28: Accepted to PCOM, trying to decide before 12/14 between Nova and PCOM

    12/05: Decided to attend PCOM, deposit sent and I finally know what I am doing with my life for the next 4 years! now going to enjoy my senior year at PSU!

    any questions, don't hesitate toa sk
