    Summary of Application Experience

    MCAT Score came out in early September. Working on getting those secondaries in now. I would love to go to any of the schools i applied to. My goal is to become a physician and any of these schools will prepare me for that.

    Becoming a doctor has been a life-long dream for me, and i made sure to show that in my secondaries.

    During college i really focused on exploring all things of the surrounding world, thus my extracurriculars are considered really good.

    Not gonna lie, i am a bit disappointed with how this cycle turned out. I wasn\'t expecting much when i applied because i knew my GPA would hold me back, but after i got the MD schools interview invites i actually thought i had a good chance. I am probably either terrible at interviewing, or the whole package just did not impress the admissions committees. Then again i did get accepted to both of the DO schools i interviewed at so maybe im not that terrible at interviewing. I don\'t mind going DO, i just always dreamed of being an MD. But in the end its just two letters after my initials. I will be doing what i love either way: helping people feel better! I think i would just feel better about the cycle if i knew that it was my grades that got me out of MD running, and i did not get any MD interviews. But being 0/3 at MD interviewing just makes me kinda sad.
