    Summary of Application Experience

    Advanced genetics professor
    Chemistry lab professor
    English professor
    Two graduate professors

    I applied mid-June. Application delayed because AAMC lost a transcript. Placed in line to be verified in mid-July. Verified 8/8/08

    I am not really sure what happened...
    I was rejected from many schools that I thought I was competitive at.

    I applied to schools that I liked and can see myself and my boyfriend moving to. I also chose schools where my boyfriend could relocate his job.

    I wrote all my secondary essays while I was waiting for my primary to be verified. Compete at most schools at the end of August. Sorry, most dates are estimates. I did not write them down and I cannot remember most.
    Hope this helps someone.
