    Criticism is your best friend. Seek it out anywhere and everywhere. But don\'t let criticism discourage you from surging ahead. If you want this, nothing should be able to stop you. Nothing.

    • Undergraduate college: top 20 school
    • Total MCAT SCORE: 509

    • Overall GPA: 3.17
    • Science GPA: 3.22

    Summary of Application Experience

    My 2 strengths were my personal statement--a school even complimented me on it in an interview invitation email, and the fact that my MCAT score jumped significantly in just 3 months.

    16 complete applications, 11 interview invites (2 were declined), 5 acceptances (and I\'m praying for more)... I feel blessed.

    Literally every single interview I have been on was laid back…except for Columbia\'s. I was asked thought-provoking questions, but because of that, I enjoyed this particular interview the most. I just put up this page a couple of days ago, and will update it with my stats later. Feel free to make comments/ask questions! =)
