    Summary of Application Experience

    Its been two years of applications, but after being accepted to where I really loved, it finally paid off. My numbers are very average, but I did some good research and worked hard to round out my application this past year and things have worked out. Moral of the story is, you don\'t have to have phenomenal numbers to get into a solid program. Show them you\'re passionate and love medicine and it\'ll work itself out. I\'ll write more about my experience and put some more dates into everything in the next few days. PM on SDN if you have any questions or want some advice.
