Summary of Application Experience
Was an MSTP applicant in 2000, was rejected and went on to pursue graduate studies, always thinking about medicine and re-applying.
Got my AMCAS verified 6/27/08, letters with the service aug 08, applied to 10 schools.
After no interview requests and a reject from MN, I applied to 10 more schools in late oct- kind of wish I had soent the money to apply to more schools earlier...
