    Summary of Application Experience

    Very very expensive venture. Hopefully, it will all pay off in the end.

    MY THOUGHTS.....
    Interviews give Adcoms the opportunity to see what lies beneath. Perfects scores, EC\'s and LORs don’t guarantee an acceptance. It’s crazy how some pre-meds are naive enough to believe so. If someone that does not look as good as you do on paper gets in where you got rejected or WL, don’t be spiteful or negative, they just might have had that \"it\" factor or maybe even done a better job of selling themselves. An interviewer once me told me,\" because one has good scores, LORs, or volunteered extensively does not mean he/she is here for the right reasons, all you need is a good advisor to tell you what is required; so….. now tell me why I should believe you are in it for the right reasons?\" I say all this because I have come across far too many blogs where people complain about an URM taking their spot. It did not belong to you in the first place so how could someone have taken it away from you. I personally would like my classmates to be of all shades and from all corners of the world because I would love to learn about their culture and struggles. That in itself is education. If I was not privileged to get into school this year, I would try harder next time. I would not blame my shortcomings or setbacks on others or even an “action”. Casting such blame is merely a sign of immaturity, cockiness or even over confidence which might very well be the reason why some end up sitting on a WL or even rejection letters. I’ve always worked hard and seldom had it easy in life; it’s a shame that some future classmates would think I did not deserve a spot in the class. But guess what, I’m in and will be for the next four years. You don’t have to love me, you just do you and I’ll do me. See you at the finish line. Peace.
