  • Brief Profile: The biggest thing I learned during this application is apply smarter, not to more schools. I applied to so many schools that i stood no chance at because of various things (HBC, Religious schools, Extremely un-OOS friendly, etc).. Out of the 6 interviews I received, I could have predicted 4 of them, including my only acceptance at this point. Save your money, go with your gut.
    Also, I\'d have to say the only way to be successful in a situation like mine is to have a strong support system and pick the right people to take advice from. Everyone is willing to give you advice, but not everyone knows what they are talking about or cares what happens to you in the end.
    Regardless, I\'m extremely thrilled about the outcome of the cycle and cannot wait to start medical school in the fall!
