    Summary of Application Experience

    6/1/2010: AACOMAS submitted.
    6/5/2010: AACOMAS verified.
    6/6/2010: Submitting application on 6/22 after new MCAT scores... hoping that physical sciences score will go up.
    6/22/2010: Awesome! New scores are in. Too bad they\'re IDENTICAL TO LAST YEAR\'S. This is a bit frustrating as I paid good money for a private Physical Sciences experience. I\'m still applying anyway (can\'t hurt - I\'ve changed in a year), but I don\'t have my hopes up.
    8/18/2010: Submitted FSU, UCF, Nova secondaries
    8/28/2010: Submitted FIU secondaries. This will be all the secondaries I do for a week or two. Been soo busy studying for my exams that I haven\'t been able to crank out many. I hope applying early helps!
    8/31/2010: Invited for interview at Nova Southeastern - top and only DO school.
    12/7/2010: Attended Nova. I was kind of meh about the interview to be honest - it\'s my home state and it would be nice to go to school here but I wasn\'t against or for the school.
    12/15/2010: Accepted to Nova! Nice to know I\'m at least going to medical school next year!
    12/25/2010: Grades for Drexel IMS are out.... Medicine and Society A-, Microanatomy A-, Biochemistry B-, Physiology B-. It means I\'m basically an average medical school student! Sweet! I\'m happy about the grades because I did poorly on the first exams and managed to make up for it on the final few exams. Hopefully it makes a difference to my applications!
    1/6/2011: Western-COMP application complete. I need to forward my first semester grades to my MD schools...
    1/21/2011: Actually NOW my Western-COMP application is complete after an error with my MCAT scores. I\'ve been freaking out over my secondary answers too, I really don\'t feel like there is a difference in MD vs DO and I applied to schools where I thought I\'d be getting the best well-rounded education which is a summation of school characteristics and location. Forwarded all my grades to MD schools but haven\'t heard any bites, except for FIU where I was rejected. HOORAY!
    2/1/2011: Waiting for that FAU school to open its applications...........
    3/1/2011: Submitted my FAU application. Fingers Crossed.
