Summary of Application Experience

Cooper Medical School of Rowan University: Interviewed 11/18/2011, rejected 11/28/2011

Third Try. Last time was the wildcard round, the time before was when I didn\'t know shit, and this is the real thing, hence the huge number of schools. I\'m getting in this year. I have to. Mainly because I don\'t want to take the MCAT again.

Also, the AMCAS submission date reflects when Verification was done and letters were all received by AMCAS, hence the pre-dating of secondaries.

To give a bit of an overview of my application, I\'m a gay Cystic Fibrosis patient (slim, hairy, Jewish men, you\'ve been selected to receive a prize. PM for details.). My extracurriculars include:

Most significant:

Cardiovascular Research, 1 year post-college, ongoing (Author on 1 R01 grant)
100+ hours recording books for blind and dyslexic students (Leadership/volunteering - weekly)
Renaissance music choir (Soloist each season)


50+ hours providing GED instruction to low-income students
50+ hours shadowing in Cardiac Cath Lab (ongoing)
