    Summary of Application Experience

    It's hard to say that after all the hard work/effort, it comes down to luck. But, looking back, I've been very lucky in my experiences and people that I've met, and they've shaped who I am today. I was very candid on my application and during my interviews, and hoped that the school(s) would see me as a fit as much as I wanted to find a fit for myself. In the end, I can say I'm very happy with how this has turned out - stay positive, and good luck to anyone looking at this!
