    Summary of Application Experience

    AMCAS Verified: Early September

    I wish I would not have applied to so many schools. I was feeling really insecure with my applications as a reapplicant and felt pressure to add more and more schools to increase my odds.

    Also, after receiving the UMich acceptance fairly early on, I should have withdrew from a couple schools that I was less than excited about compared to UMich. I mean, if you\'re feeling on the fence about a given school, of course, attend the interview, but I should have trusted my impressions and saved the money.
