    Summary of Application Experience

    I visited UMDNJ in February with my wife on a FREE trip because she was courting Ph.D. programs.. absolutely loved the program! It became my immediate first choice over the Florida DO schools. By the time I was accepted at LECOM, I still had heard NOTHING from UMDNJ!! I was freaking out because it was December already!!! So I called Paula Watkins (got her card when I went in Feb but never met her face-to-face)...

    this was the convo...after formalities...
    Me 'I wanted to inquire on the status of my application because I am on a 2 week deadline to make a $1500 deposit to LECOM.'

    Paula 'Well Matthew, it just so happens that your file is on my desk and...you meet our qualifications for an interview.'

    Me..silently.. YYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    interview scheduled for Jan... I asked for an earlier interview
    interview rescheduled on Dec 8th for Dec 10th!!!!!!!!
    committee meet on Dec. 12th and I was accepted!! and offered scholarship!!!

    I must have said something good in interview....
