    Summary of Application Experience

    Well, I guess I am living breathing proof that it can be done if you want it bad enough. In retrospect I applied to too many schools - I was paranoid after being told so many times on SDN that graduate work doesn\'t matter. So my advice (to reapplicants especially) is to talk to actual admissions advisors at the schools you are really interested in, don\'t believe half of you read on SDN, and work your butt off to prove that you deserve an acceptance.

    Feel free to ask me any questions!
