    Summary of Application Experience

    7/22 - Submitted to Brown for verification purposes (no external md/phd program).

    7/31 - I finally submitted today. I've been back and forth on if a research career was for me. After much deliberation, I've decided that I will just apply MD and if I really miss the research I'll take a fellowship later on. I will still apply MD/PhD at a few programs that really interest me or I have personal connections to.

    8/1 - Trying to keep up with secondaries. The last thing I need is to be a few weeks late on those too.
