    Summary of Application Experience

    The admissions game is completely random. I knew I had a very slim chance with my undergrad grades, but I gave it a shot, and I got in. It didn't all go the way I wanted (not getting into my own state school, especially when my Master's, my EC's, and my letters of rec were all OHSU related, really stung), but I will be a doctor in four years. I'm grateful for the chance, and off to Albany I go!
