    Summary of Application Experience

    August 2008 - Took the MCAT for the second time. Really disappointed that my score dropped. I was recovering from surgery but still felt I could put in an honest effort and raise my score.

    Last year (2008-2009 cycle) I didn't realize how early you could submit applications and although I met the deadlines, AACOMAS sat on my application because they lost a transcript. By the time I sent another transcript and they shipped off my application, I had missed a number of deadlines. It was probably too late anyway because many of the schools I applied to have rolling admissions systems. I got an interview at Touro-NY and was waitlisted. I learned my lesson so this year I am applying early to both DO and MD schools. Not applying to Touro-NY this time around. Wasn't thrilled with the location, not that impressed with the school. One interviewer was pretty aggressive and hostile.
