    Summary of Application Experience

    I sent in my primary / secondaries a lot later than I should my biggest piece of advice would be to apply as early as you can. Also, prepare as much as you can for your interviews. I messed up big time during a lot of my interviews and the results weren\'t pretty . Even if your a strong applicant don\\\'t take any of your interviews for granted. I didn\'t get my first acceptance until the beginning of May, so I had planned for a while to be a re-applicant, which would have been super stressful.

    I think its pretty obvious from my list of schools that I want to go out West. Last June I was expecting interviews at most of the schools i applied to in Illinois/Wisconsin/Indiana. I never would have guessed that California schools would have appreciated my application more than the Midwest! (home state being Illinois)
