    Summary of Application Experience

    I took the MCAT during the summer before my senior year in 2009. I decided not to apply right out of undergrad and took 2 years off. Spent my time teaching science in a public high school outside Providence, RI.

    There were times when I felt like there was no way I was getting in anywhere. I was put on Extended Review at my state school and had no other interview offers. Then out of nowhere and within 2 weeks of each other, I got 2 more interview invites. My last interview was definitely my most solid interview and luckily it was my top choice as well.

    I really wanted to apply and get in on the first try for the 2011-2012 application cycle since my MCAT would expire soon. I got into my top choice, Brown. I am 95% sure I will matriculate there. If I get off the IS waitlist at UW, I could potentially change my mind because of the in-state tuition. It also depends on how much financial aid I can get from Brown. We will see.
