Decided to complete a grad program to give me an extra edge this application cycle. Competition for California medical schools is fierce :x. Only spent 2 months studying for the MCAT since I needed to submit a score to apply to grad school. I bet I could have scored higher, but overall I am content with the result.

Summary of Application Experience
Submitted my primary AMCAS application really late :(. Will probably hurt my ability to score interviews.
California schools are my #1 priority. I know I\'m taking a huge risk by only applying to top tier schools, especially since California schools are notorious for being unkind to California residents. If I am unsuccessful this cycle, I\'ll apply broadly next time. But let\'s hope I get in :)
Summary of Experience:
My top choice for medical school. UCLA is AMAZING. #1 ranked hospital on the west coast. World class faculty. Brilliant students. Prestige. Brand new, beautiful teaching hospital. Unlimited research opportunities. Westwood. Beverly Hills. Hollywood. Beach. Sexiest people in America. Need I say more? I would DIE if I got in!
