    Roughly $5000 spent on application process between AMCAS, secondaries, suit, and travel. I received my first acceptance in April, at which point I was sitting on 6 waitlists. The stress involved with waiting this long was awful, but I pushed through it all by lifting weights and maintaining my social life. Don\'t let waitlists put your life on hold.
