    Summary of Application Experience

    12/28/09 - Getting tired and overwhelmed. Wished I finished secondaries earlier because I\'m scheduling interviews into March. It\'s getting a bit crazy and hectic!
    1/6/10 - Now that the holidays are over, I\'m hoping to hear back from more schools. NYU just said my secondary was complete so hopefully I hear from them soon. I expect to hear from BU later this month and thats exciting/nerve wracking, and hopefully Downstate. I really hope to get more emails - even if its rejections, at least I\'ll know where I stand.
    1/12/10 - Deferred to BU\'s normal pool which finds out in March. So sad :(
    1/13/10 - First acceptance! Albany! I can go to interviews a little calmer now. Need to decide if I\'ll withdraw from any of the places I currently have interviews.
    1/27/10 - Sad, it deleted everything I wrote. Anyways, I got a Dartmouth interview invite and am super pumped. Also got into U Of Rochester which will be tough to pick between for numerous reasons. I withdrew from NYMed, SUNY Upstate, and GW. Things have slowed down and I think most interviewees have been selected. Guess thats why you should apply earlier. It\'s ok. I think I\'ll give up hope at the end of January/mid-Feb for schools like Stanford and Yale. I think they\'re almost done with interviews and to not get an offer by now is a bad sign :( Waiting to hear from Pitt, Downstate.
    3/6 - waitlisted at Pitt. Got into Downstate. Waiting on BU, Harvard, Dartmouth, Einstein. Bummed about Pitt. The waitlist snail mail was sent home and no one told me. Pitt sent me an email saying to do my fin aid as they finish looking at applicants so I didn\'t know. Bummer.
    3/14 - Still waiting on those 4. Just got rejections from UBuffalo and Yale. Not too surprised. I\'m just waiting for Howard to see if I get a rejection/interview. Doubt I will. I\'m really hoping for BU and Harvard. Dartmouth and Einstein kinda underwhelmed me, kinda disappointed. I don\'t think Einstein rivals Rochester at all, though.
    3/15 - Waiting on BU and Harvard. Apparently, BU will probably be out by the end of the month and Harvard will be sending responses out all week. Nervous! BUT, I just got into Dartmouth. I think I\'ll go to their 2nd look weekend to see how I really feel about them, after all, it was my dream school.
