    Summary of Application Experience

    Going into the application process, having watched friends have incredibly painful and difficult experiences, I planned for the worst and applied to way too many schools. I guess it is better to be safe than sorry...

    I added a profile because I found this website incredibly useful as I was applying.

    My Advice:
    Apply early!
    Hope for the best
    Don't get set on any one school - there are so many great places out there
    Always stay with students when you can - I met some really great people
    Do some volunteer work. That always came up in interviews and is the thing that possibly hurt some of my friends in their application process
