    Summary of Application Experience

    Applying early and lots of prayer...learning patience, so far is starting to pay off.

    9-23-09: Wow can\'t believe I actually got an interview...and so early. These 2 schools are definitely within my top 3.
    -2 interview invites back to back! I\'m starting to see just how true the importance of applying early is. God is definitely good! I am hoping to be able to coordinate my interviews so that I only have to make one trip...since Iowa is only ~3 hours from Chicago.

    10-9-09: Interview at UIC

    10-15-09: UIC status: \"FINAL DECISION MADE\" >>> so quick!!! Unfortunately I have to wait for snail mail :(

    10-21-09: Iowa interview

    10-22-09: so much for applying early...I guess I got in early at the places that matter. I\'m still waiting to hear back from a few places I added in September that I am interested in. The majority of the schools however were just \"I want to go to medical school applications\"

    10-23-09: ACCEPTED University of Illinois at Chicago!!!! Finally received my packet in the mail today. So incredibly excited and blessed to have the opportunity to attend my no. 1 school. Now I have to decide what to do about the schools I\'m still waiting to hear from. I will probably withdraw from the Philly schools...
