Summary of Application Experience
Applying to medical school is an emotional roller coaster. Buckle up because it\'s quite a ride! You should know that there are only so many things you can control: namely, polishing your essays, getting your application materials into the admissions offices in an early and timely fashion, and being well-rested and well-versed for interviews. As for the interview, treat it like a dialogue on a first date (you\'re trying to impress the school and the school is trying to impress you). I really enjoyed traveling and meeting new faces in new places, from my fellow applicants to the interviewers themselves.
Take pride in the fact that you\'ve made it this far. Remember to smile, be genuine, and believe in yourself - not only can you succeed, but you will succeed.
