    Summary of Application Experience

    Yale is my top choice and I am currently wait-listed there.

    I was accepted at NYMC, AECOM, and UConn. I am also currently wait-listed at Georgetown.

    This was a grueling, stressful process that ruled my life for about a year. I very happy it's over, and I'm event more excited that I'll be starting class in August!!

    Best of luck to everyone in the process!
