    12/2 - Letter in mail from AZCOM: \"placed on hold for potential future interview invite... this should be seen as a positive result.\"
    12/2 - Checks cashed for secondaries at PCOM and OHU-COM, guess that means my secondary is complete there?
    12/4 - Rejection letter in mail from LECOM-B. Their loss, right?
    12/6 - Secondaries complete at UMDNJ and LMU.
    12/14 - Secondaries complete at ATSU-SOMA and KCOM. Late, but at least they\'re all done! Now all I have to do is wait..................
    12/27: Rejection in the mail from UNE. That one hurt....
    1/4: Email from West Virginia SCOM - Application on \"hold/decision deferred.\"
    1/5: Email rejection from VCOM.
    1/18: Rejection from KCOM. Hey. A.T. Still didn\'t go to medical school either, right?
    1/20: PCOM interview invite!! Would LOVE to be accepted here!!
    1/27: Email rejection from CCOM. Booo.
    1/31: Interview invite from LMU-DCOM via phone! Looking good!
    2/15: Attended LMU-DCOM interview. WOW, I have a completely different outlook on this school now! A real gem out in the woods.
    2/19: ACCEPTED TO LMU-DCOM!!!!!!!!!!!
    2/24: Attended PCOM interview. Still my first choice school but the interview process did leave something to be desired. Hopefully I don\'t have to wait too long to hear back! LMU deposit is due soon...
    2/28: Attended AZCOM interview. Beautiful campus, nice facilities. VERY expensive though, and 3rd year rotations are locked into areas I don\'t want to be in....
    3/5: Rejected from AZCOM. Meh. Really holding out for PCOM still, hopefully got my one interview/rejection out of the way. Probably only got this interview because my DO LOR was from an Almuni here and he actually made a phone call as well. I\'m not sure they were seriously considering me as an applicant...
    3/12: Letter from PCOM, notifying me (and other applicants) that decisions will be delayed until April. I will have a decision \"no later than April 22nd.\" Great.
    3/14: Deposit sent to LMU-DCOM. Still hoping for a PCOM acceptance but I could be happy at LMU also.
    4/22: Waitlisted at PCOM. They made me wait 2 months for that??? Ahhhhh....... Likely attending LMU-DCOM.
    4/26: End of cycle rejection emails from OU-COM and UMDNJ.
    5/2: End of cycle rejection from NOVA. Still waiting for a few more of these.....
    5/24: End of cycle email rejection from LECOM. \"The admissions committee looked favorably on your application, however...\" lol
    5/27: End of cycle email rejection from WVSOM.
    6/14: End of cycle email rejection from ATSU-SOMA. This wraps up every school I haven\'t heard news from. Still checking my mail for waitlist news from PCOM but otherwise it will be LMU-DCOM next year!
    7/22: Never heard from PCOM (screw you guys!), going to LMU.

    8/29 update: VERY HAPPY OMS-1 AT LMU-DCOM. Things worked out well and I ended up at the right place!
