    Summary of Application Experience

    This is my second year applying and I've taken the MCAT 3 times and haven't done well on any of them, after the first time I just stressed myself out and couldn't concentrate on anything. (My last MCAT score was 9PS, 8VS, 8BS P). I feel like I have enough extracurricular activities to get me in but my MCAT score is holding me back. Really hope I get in.. I don't think it's good to take the MCAT more than 3 times..? And this process is getting expensive!


    AMCAS was certified on 8/4 and AACOMAS was certified on 8/27.

    10/15 - all secondaries were out by mid Oct. They were sent out as completed between 8/5 and 10/15

    10/21 - first interview invite at TOURO CA in vallejo by mail. Close to home, possibly only chance of staying in CA. We'll see how it goes!
