    Summary of Application Experience

    AMCAS primary submitted around 10AMish June 1st, verified next day around 4PM. Heard that submitting early is crucial. All LORs in by mid July. 1 Committee, 2 science professors, 1 non-science (Spanish) professor.

    Took the March 26, 2011 MCAT, thought I could do better on PS and VR, did really well on BS and WS. Signed up for the August 23, 2011 administration.

    Received secondaries but decided not to fill out anymore and just concentrated on studying for the retake. Continued filling out the rest on Aug 25th (gave myself a day\'s break to mentally/emotionally recover from the exam) and beyond.

    Shadowed 2 radiologists (Iranian father and son) at Mercy Hospital and an emergency room physician (originally from Haiti) at Holy Cross Hospital. Volunteered at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center (Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Center) since freshman year. Two years of physics research with conference presentations. Honors program at my university, along with ECs. Work part time at a local tutoring center. Yep, just taking things one day at a time.

    Suprisingly did better on the PS section on my retake.. I thought it was much harder second time around but hey, that\'s how the MCAT is right? you never really know :P BS and WS sections were again really good, VR was still poor but I don\'t feel too bad about it. VR is aparently notorious for giving many preMeds a hard time so, we\'ll see what happens!

    Interview at MCW was awesome!!!! :D :D I definitely see myself here, beautiful facilities, friendly people, nice area :)

    Received call from MCW\'s director of admissions... Happiness beyond measure!!! M.D. Class of 2016!!!!!!!
