    Summary of Application Experience

    2nd time applying - Getting apps in early is by far the way to go.
    First round was 2007, applied MD/MPH (mistake, pick one or the other, or apply to each as a backup). I was submitting secondaries in Nov/Dec, and was interviewing for waitlist spots.
    Waitlisted at BU and Jeff in 2007, turned down Drexel acceptance to do MPH and re-apply. No new MCATs, but 3.9 grad school GPA helps a little.
