    Summary of Application Experience

    Giant waste of $1,100 in out-of-state (Non-Texas) applications.

    Interviewed at Houston and Galveston last year but did not get in. These two schools didn\'t even interview me this year even though my application was better (higher GPA, more clinical and non-clinical volunteering, more shadowing, more research, a lot better personal statement).

    I\'m wary of drawing a moral out of this since the process can be so random, but don\'t apply until you are really ready to? Or you need a big improvement to get a second interview at the same school? I dunno.
