    Summary of Application Experience

    MDApps wouldn't let me add certain schools to my old profile, so I created this one in hopes of depicting a more accurate representation of my app cycle this year that can benefit more people.

    Considering adding more schools, but it's already getting late and I have no more funds for interviews and deposits unless I take out more loans.

    I should also note that I'm pretty picky about location for financial and personal reasons, hence the lack of submitted secondaries/attended interviews.

    Will probably have to re-apply a 3rd cycle, which I am okay with because I plan on re-taking my MCAT anyway.

    No applications have been submitted yet during this cycle.
