    Summary of Application Experience

    It\'s finally the end of my application cycle so I thought I would create a profile. God knows how often I used this site and SDN. However, I would like to share a few words of wisdom:

    1) Don\'t compare yourself to other applicants. Just because your stats are similar (or even if you share all the same hobbies) it doesn\'t mean the same schools will want you. So stop obsessively looking through these profiles!

    2) Get your AMCAS application in ASAP! It will take a few weeks to be verified, and the longer you wait, the more people there will be to get verified. Also, you never know what sort of problems will arise whether it be transcripts or LORs.

    3) Limit your time on SDN or you will drive yourself crazy. Trust me.
