    Summary of Application Experience

    I applied as early as possible and really tried to look at schools that I would fit in to. Contrary to others\' advice, I think there is something to be said for finding a school whose mission fits your own. Not all medical schools are equal--you should look at what type of candidate they are looking for. Generally, I think most schools you\'re interested in for a particular reason will be interested in you for that very reason. I only interviewed 3 places, but that was enough to show me how much I liked the University of Rochester and I withdrew the rest of my pending applications. I also really tried to save money on applications, as futile as that was.
