    Summary of Application Experience

    I applied late in the cycle (took MCAT in August), and then was a slacker on my secondaries! LISTEN TO PEOPLE WHO TELL YOU TO APPLY EARLY!!! That was my mistake, as well as waiting to get my letters of rec until late, so I was incredibly stressed at times :(
