  • Brief Profile: There is a lot I wish I had done differently. I wish I had paid attention to my grades in college so I wouldn\'t end up 1 or 2 standard deviations lower than the mean GPA of many medical schools. I wish I didn\'t have to carry around Bs for biochem and orgo. I wish I had not submitted AMCAS in September and my secondaries in November/December. I will post my stats after the season ends but they are blah. But I did end up wanting to become a doctor. I\'ve got what I did, so I knew I must make the rest spotless. I did have interesting ECs throughout college and beyond (will post after the season), and I edited my essays at least 10 times and threw it at friends\' friends to see 1) if they feel like they knew me after reading, and 2) if they feel like they, too, want to become doctors after reading :) I hope this profile will inspire everyone who thought they\'re shooting for the moon with a slingshot to give their best, keep up good cheer, and enjoy the ride.

    Summary of Application Experience

    Be early! Be early! Be early! Early birds get all the slugs in suburban backyards! Seriously, I submitted AMCAS in September and most of my secondaries in November/December, which made it very difficult to stay optimistic and confident. Fortunately I had a supportive team that put up with night after night after night of poring over my essays and encouraging/forcing me to apply to schools I thought I had no chance. Thanks :)
