I\'m not Caucasian but the website keeps changing it. Left it blank on AMCAS.

Letters of Recommendation: Committee letter - Meh, the interview did not go so well. Need to practice before interviewing season starts 1 from research mentor - Sent the day after I requested it, worried that it may have been rushed 1 from biology seminar prof - Spent an hour discussing my application with her, hopefully she was able to write some insightful comments 1 from a sociology prof - Known her all 4 years of undergrad through various capacities, pretty sure it was a strong rec 1 from a French prof - Also knew her all 4 years of undergrad; I know it was a very strong rec because she told me I was one of her favorite students

Summary of Experience:
No midwest love?!? Ok, I know it\'s not the same as IS, but I won\'t lie...I was expecting something. But then I found out that they only send requests for supplemental material for applicants that they are going to interview, so it made me feel a little better about never getting a secondary.
