    Summary of Application Experience

    Recommendation letters came in pretty late, only started being complete in mid-October ... ARGH!

    12/10/2008 - OMG, I finally was sent an invitation for an interview at Einstein! It's reassuring and exciting finally knowing that a school actually thinks I may have what it takes to be a doctor. And an American school at that! Canadians are quite the underdogs here. The Bronx, here I come!

    12/22/2008 - Wow, I got invited for an interview for Case. It's a Merry Christmas!

    1/6/2009 - UBC invite, better not screw up this time.

    2/2/2009 - Happy Groundhog day! The groundhog crawled out of the ground to find himself doing two interviews and receiving two interview invites! Go Queen's and Calgary!

    2/18/2009 - I'M GOING TO BE A DOCTOR! So exciting, knowing all my hard work, blood, sweat, tears, frustration, despair and hope finally paid off! Oh happy day!

    2/20/2009 - U of A interview invite!

    2/26/2009 - Penn State invite.
