    Summary of Application Experience

    FYI: As of 2/4 I updated my profile to include schools that I withdrew from post-interview invite. Hopefully the extra info will be helpful to future applicants

    I also applied to Rosalind Franklin and Drexel, but withdrew pre-interview invite after my acceptance to Case. I took those schools off my profile because it looked too messy leaving them on there :)

    I don\'t have a pre-med advisor or a pre-med committee at my school, so I applied to a pretty wide range of med schools. I honestly had no idea which schools were a good fit for me at the beginning of the app cycle.

    I\'m pretty pleased and surprised with how the cycle has been going so far. I know that with the caliber of schools I\'ve applied to, even getting an interview can be a crap shoot. I feel really fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit so many great schools.

    If you have any questions or want advice that I\'m completely unqualified to give, PM me on SDN!
