    Summary of Application Experience

    Worked out this time. I have struggled with a learning disability my whole life which really stuck out on my MCAT score. My application had a letter from my neuropsychologist explaining my odd situation of high IQ and ability to succeed in Med School despite my low MCAT section. I am glad that some schools were able to give me a shot.
