    Summary of Application Experience

    I\'m satisfied with the way this cycle is turning out, but also frustrated that I wasn\'t given a chance at many schools. Extracurriculars are key. Even though my numbers were above average everywhere, I only filled out 8/15 of my AMCAS activity slots, and none of them were mind-blowing. I feel this (and my no-name undergrad) were my biggest weaknesses, as my interviewing and writing skills were positively commented on several times on the trail.

    tl;dr: study hard, but also start an NGO
