Summary of Application Experience
5/17/12 - Finally done with this long and arduous process!
My one piece of advice: apply early, apply early, and apply early!! If I had applied earlier...perhaps I would have received a few more interviews and acceptances.
However, things worked in my favor and the two schools that did offer me interviews ended up accepting me...My top choice (from the very beginning) being one of them :)
