    Summary of Application Experience

    Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I am going into this process with average numbers, but I am trusting one institution will consider me worthy of an acceptance. Over the past year I\'ve learned I cannot lean on my own qualifications and merits. God is so much bigger than my flaws; so Lord-willing, we\'ll see some miracles.

    ***My applications are in Your hands; may Your Will be done. Amen.***

    Fourth and final transcript arrives!

    AMCAS & AACOMAS start processing my applications. Hooray!

    AMCAS Verified! Huzzah! :]
    Two secondaries already in my email box; obviously unscreened. Here we go!

    AACOMAS Verified!

    I received a lot of secondaries over the last week and I\'m a little behind the schedule I set for myself. Let\'s bust out some more essays! YARG!

    I\'m already getting discouraged. This is my second time applying to medical school and I\'m afraid I\'ll never get in anywhere. I don\'t have a back-up plan except go to the Caribbean if U.S. schools reject me this time around. If it\'s any kind of consolation for myself, I\'m applying much, much earlier than last time. But still.

    OK, today I am feeling better. I just have to keep going forward. I can\'t change what happened last cycle, but I can certainly effect this cycle!

    I am a bit of a slower writer. My hat goes off to people who submit a secondary in less than a week. I\'m giving myself two weeks turn-around time. Fortunately, I am now not as inundated with secondaries so I foresee being finished soon.

    Last LoR posted in AMCAS! Sweet relief!

    I am starting to burn out after filling out so many apps. Nevertheless, I am still optimistic these days.

    I am looking forward to when I am done with all the secondaries. Almost there!

    1 MD & 5 DO interview invites. I don\'t know why God is blessing me so much during this process. Nevertheless, all the glory goes to Him! Thank you, Jesus for your providence thus far!

    Oh. My. Goodness. One secondary left! (That is, unless UCSF or UCLA show me some love.)
    Wow, what an awesome day: two more interview invites!

    Last secondary finished today! W00T! Off to my first interview in two days!

    Another MD interview invite! God, what are you doing? I\'m just so blown away.

    I am looking forward to the next interview in a few days! Let\'s do this! :D

    Am flying out again for a series of three interviews this week! Can\'t believe I just finalized the rest of my travel arrangements less than 24 hours before departure! Being your own travel agent is hard work! :P

    Phew. I finally get a few weeks respite from all the traveling I have done over the last month. It\'s been such a whirlwind but it\'s been so much fun! God has abundantly blessed me with such delightful interview experiences! I have to admit, the interview process has been great fun! And, I am holding my breath for October 15th for the first day of MD schools decisions! I can hardly wait!

    Too bad October 15th is a Saturday--I will have to wait for the regular mail this week to learn any news. Almost done waiting! Eee!

    I logged into my web portals hoping to see a change in status. Still under review... Mailman, please deliver my letters soon! Nevertheless, I feel at peace though--like the \"peace that surpasses understanding.\"

    One web portal says, \"Correspondence Sent\"!! Eek! The other web portal says that a decision is pending... Eek! Mailman, please hurry up! I am almost beside myself with anticipation! Peace-filled anticipation--that is.

    Checked another web portal that says a final decision has letter has been sent. Eek! I am so nervous. Mr. Postman, please take your time!

    Sent in my deposit for Drexel. Am gonna be an MD! What an answer to prayer! And what a display of God\'s favor and grace! Praise Him! I have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!

    Happy New Year! BUSM emailed me last week to inform that they have deferred making a final decision on my application until March! Woohoo! Made it through another bottleneck! I can still dream can\'t I? Praise God for whatever happens!

    Waitlisted at BUSM! So close, but still what an honor! BUSM told us that the waitlist was small so I\'m excited that they like me enough to keep me on their minds! Even if it doesn\'t work out, Drexel here I come!

    Thank you friends for watching my application process! I could not have done this without your support. May God receive all the glory as He has given me entrance to medical school this fall!
