    Summary of Application Experience

    Uphill struggle until I found a D.O. mentor who shared his application experience. Since I\'m a non-traditional applicant from the computer industry, it was difficult getting shadowing and an advisor recommendation letter. However, professors were eager to help me with letters. MCAT and volunteering were also difficult as I split time between that and work. Don\'t be a Financial Analyst writing the 2008 annual report the month you take the MCAT.
