Summary of Application Experience

Dual credit during high school brought down my GPA by .2 (undergrad 3.96 sGPA and 3.91 oGPA). Moral of the story: don\'t slack off and not expect it to bite you later.

Graduating in two years undergrad has been...interesting. The major thing for people considering graduating early and applying directly to medical school is to keep in mind that you simply have less time than other people to build an application that reflects you (grades, EC\'s, knowing professors and asking for LoR\'s, experiences, etc). That said, go for it!
