Summary of Application Experience
Stressful experience ... particularly being that it is my third time applying. Don\'t give up!
Update 11/19: Can\'t believe I received an acceptance! I absolutely loved Creighton during my interview and am getting really excited. Still hoping to hear back from Wake and UNC ... hopefully soon.
Application year is finally over! I was accepted to 2 medical schools, one of which gave me a scholarship! I decided to attend ECU, due to the much, much (much, much) lower cost than Creighton University. I\'m very excited about my choice and starting medical school in the fall!
Overall ... just remember that a low MCAT score such as mine will not keep you out. Other factors on your application are just as important ... which is one fact that many applicants (including myself) tend to overlook.
Good luck! :)
