    Summary of Application Experience

    Also interviewed at Marian but was rejected post-interview. I truly question their feedback.

    What I found most surprising is how expensive the application process is, even when my apps were covered by the fee waiver and FAP helped with the MCAT. If you're a low income student such as myself, you will need to apply narrower and more strategically. I'm grateful my first choice accepted me (and were my second interview). Otherwise I'd only have money for 1 more interview. I will be using the left over money for deposits and don't know how i'll afford moving.
