    Summary of Application Experience

    Hell yeah...I\'m gonna be a doctor! Feeling so lucky to be holding an acceptance from a program I LOVE...still hoping for some Cali love, but I\'m a happy kid now :)

    Definitely slacked on my secondaries...but I also believe in fit, and I worked hard on the secondaries for schools I was most drawn to, and let some others fall by the way-side....but overall, I\'d say it\'s working out for me. I\'d rather have 3 interviews from programs I love than many interviews from programs I\'m lukewarm about. It\'s actually pretty validating; I\'m not getting love from everywhere, but everywhere I\'ve gotten interest from has really jived with who I am/what I\'ve done.
