  • Brief Profile: Now that the application cycle is over, I am happy to report that I will be attending the University of Pittsburgh. It was one of my top choices from the get-go, and I feel very fortunate to have been accepted. I thought that I would end up in NYC, as I am very familiar with the city, but I fell in love with Pittsburgh during my interview and revisit days. I think I will really enjoy myself there over the next 4+ years. :)

    Also, as a disclaimer for my MCAT score, I do not think that I scored to the best of my ability. I studied for about a month, but several unforeseen circumstances also hindered my prep time. However, because it was balanced, I decided to keep the score and apply to a mix of schools. My success just goes to show that you don\'t need a degree from an Ivy League school and a 35+ MCAT to break into the top 20 medical schools.
