    Summary of Application Experience


    this process is so random...

    Thoughts on the schools (in random order):

    Mount Sinai: loved it! my top choice going in this cycle

    Cornell: really liked it; very posh; but the heavy PBL scares me

    NYU: amazing hospital; good fit for me; but facilities are a little run down

    UVA: loved, loved, loved it! but sadly it's in the middle of nowhere

    UPitt: amazing, sparkling new facilities; I don't know if I can live in Pittsburgh for 4 years though(but hmm...that merit scholarship is tempting)

    AECOM: good fit and I love their mission, but the Bronx scares me

    BU: another good fit school, but I'm sick of Boston and it's super expensive
