  • Application cycles: 08/16/2011
  • Demographics: Female, 31, East Asian
  • Home state: Michigan
  • Last Active: 02/10/2012
  • Brief Profile: I will give a much more detailed account of my journey at a later point in time.
    For now, I will say that I took a very round-about approach during my application cycle. At first, I was first an MD-only applicant who loved research. However, after submitting my applications and receiving my final MCAT score, I decided to apply MSTP. This began a long process of contacting all my schools to switch my application.
    Abbreviations:
    MD: MD program-related
    MSTP: MD/PhD program-related
    SR: secondary received (many times I first received my MD secondary before my MSTP secondary)
    SS: secondary submitted
    SC: secondary complete (as marked by the school)
    LoRs: Letters of Recommendation (because I needed additional letters for my MSTP application, I often had to wait until schools received new letters to mark my MSTP application complete)
    R: rejection (specific to MD, MSTP, or both)
    W: withdrew my application
