    Summary of Application Experience

    I have been out of school for a few years and am a bit nervous about the application process, I submitted my primary app June 4th and then filled out all secondaries before September.
    10/15/08- First acceptance! It is such a relief to know that next year I will be starting med school, and will not have to worry about my MCATs expiring.
    1/26- wait list from UCSF, guess it was only a matter of time before I got a rejection or wait list. Guess it doesnt look so good for my going back to nor cal.
    4/15/09- I gave myself an April 15th deadline to decide, and I am confident in my choice of UofA Phoenix. I withdrew from other schools and waitlists, except UCSF which I will give until the end of may.
    6/1/09 It is official I will be going to Phx. It is a nice feeling to have it all done. Now for the studying
