    Summary of Application Experience

    6/2/2011 - submitted AACOMAS primary application and paid, BUT waiting on one transcript and my MCAT score
    6/7/2011 - transcript received but still processing. Application still hasn\'t been verified. Got my MCAT score: 30M (9/10/11)! I\'m so relieved I don\'t have to retake it!!
    6/10/2011 - My transcript was finally \"received,\" so now my application is being verified! It took a few days for my transcript to move from \"logged\" to \"received.\"
    6/20/2011 - My application is still \"processing\"
    6/21/2011 - My application is officially \"verified,\" and will be released to the schools
    6/23/2011 - My applications have been downloaded by the med schools (Apparently they were released on the 21st but the website showed 6/23). Now I have to wait for secondaries. Time to start writing essays.
    6/24/2011 - ATSU KCOM and ATSU SOM emailed me their secondary applications! That was incredibly fast.

    6/28/2011 - AZCOM secondary received, need to start writing essays

    7/13/2011 - I\'m still waiting for one letter of recommendation. I\'m hoping she mails it to Interfolio this week. I mailed my UMDNJ 2ndary application today, but it won\'t be complete/looked at until they receive ALL my letters of recommendation. **You can send UMDNJ\'s 2ndary app any time after they\'ve received your primary app.
    7/13/2011 - Hoping to get Touro CA and Western 2ndaries soon.
    7/15/2011 - Received Touro\'s 2ndary. Need to start writing their 2 essays.
    7/18/2011 - Received Western\'s 2ndary. I\'m overwhelmed by all the essays I need to write. I\'m STILL working on ATSU\'s essays. I haven\'t started Touro\'s. There are 4 Western essays.
    7/27/2011 - Finally got all my letters of recommendation in. Sent in my COMP secondary today + LORs. Sent in my UMDNJ secondary a couple weeks ago but sent my LORs today. Still working on ATSU-Mesa and Touro CA essays. Not turning in ATSU-Kirksville, AZCOM, Kansas City U just yet...

    8/2/2011 - Received my VERY FIRST MEDICAL SCHOOL INTERVIEW INVITE!! LECOM-Bradenton sent me the invite today via email. I will be attending the 8/29 interview.

    8/26/2011 - AZCOM INTERVIEW INVITE. Checked my AZCOM status and saw that I could schedule an interview. I was complete only a couple days ago. The earliest opening was for October 12th, but with all my interviews coming up, I had to schedule it for the next date 11/30. My work is not happy that I\'m missing so much in the next couple of months (hence, the scheduling for November)!

    10/3/2011 - interviewed at TUCOM CA...
    10/18/2011 - ACCEPTED TO WESTERN U/ COMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I thought this day would never come. It\'s been such a long process... so much waiting and anxiety! But it\'s all been worth it. I\'m so glad that I applied early and found out early. Now I have 8 months to relax and enjoy my freedom until Year One begins.
