    Summary of Application Experience

    You can say I had delusions of grandeur by applying so late in the application season, but it was just a reliance on faith. I have risen from some extreme obstacles and beaten the statistics. I read every single post about the importance of applying early, but financial and family obstacles delayed my application until the last moment.
    I could not afford to schedule the MCAT until the VERY last test day in September. When I went to register, all of the seats were taken, and I just broke down and almost cried. I then looked up to the heavens and prayed. I said out loud, \"Someone is holding my seat! This is not your time. In the name of Jesus, release my spot!\" By the end of the day, I had registered for the MCAT. I did not have an interview invite until after Christmas, and throughout this process, I repeated the same prayer. This may sound stupid to many of you, because as pre-meds, the supernatural and science are not complimentary. Nevertheless, my faith has been a source of strength.

    I must say that I am forever grateful for the FAP! They DO care about those of us with the potential to become physicians but have limited resources, and I plan to contribute to the expansion of the program when I graduate from medical school. For those who have received funding, do not forget to pay it forward!
