    Summary of Application Experience

    I have retaken the MCAT and increased from a 22N. This is my second time applying. I applied in 2006 for the 2007 school year (applied late) and had three interviews (Wayne State, SLU, Creighton). I was waitlisted at Creighton. This year my application was complete by the first week of September. I am currently shadowing a PC doctor and plan on asking him to write me a letter of rec. Hopefully I\\\'ll be able to apply to DO schools in CA later on this cycle.

    10/7/08: I just mailed out an update letter to several schools (Creighton, UW, UMiami, Georgetown, Loyola Stritch, Loma Linda, USC, Penn State, Baylor, CMS, Tulane, Tufts, SUNY-Buffalo)to let them know about recent shadowing, taking a phlebotomy class, and taking care of my grandma, since this info was not in my primary app. or secondaries.
