    Summary of Application Experience

    6/8/2009: Submitted AMCAS. I was forced to limit myself to 9 schools due to financial considerations, but I should have a good shot at each school. There are absolutely no \'reaches\' in my list.
    6/15/2009: AMCAS verified. Awaiting secondaries.
    6/19/2009: Added Ohio State University for a total of 10 schools. I\'m still waiting on secondaries.
    6/25/2009: Received my first secondary.
    7/21/2009: Rejected by Wake Forest University pre-secondary. Both my cumulative GPA and my BCPM GPA are below average for them, so I\'m not too surprised.
    8/03/2009: Withdrew from WVU and added NEOUCOM.
    8/14/2009: Withdrew from Jefferson.
    9/01/2009: All my secondaries are complete.
    10/14/2009: OSU interview.

    01/22/2010: Cincinnati invite.
