    Summary of Application Experience

    2013 - I am currently in my second year of Osteopathic medical school. I don't have time to update this, but I want to encourage everyone who is trying to get in... please never stop trying - you will eventually get it.

    10/28/2010: I'm not sure if the nursing route was the way to go, as it's responsible for single-handedly knocking down my gpa. I'm hoping for at least an interview at any of the schools I apply to. So far, only secondaries and a rejection. Still, it's early in the game for me, as I've only recently submitted to this cycle.

    11/10/2010 - I have a feeling RVUCOM just rejected me. The "Prospective Student" tab just disappeared from my page. I'm starting to look into a post-bacc program, just in case I don't get any positive news this year. It might be my only shot at medical school. I'm staying strong and positive. I've heard nothing to date from Touro or Pikeville. Good luck to everyone else.

    03/23/2011 - Accepted to the MSMS program at WesternU. I've assumed I've been rejected from the other schools, but it doesn't matter. WesternU's my first school of choice and if they've given me a shot in their MS program, that's more than enough for me, especially if there are linkage spots available for their best students. Good luck to everyone else.
