    Summary of Application Experience

    All of my acceptances are MD/PhD acceptances. I did not interview at any programs as MD-only.

    Got Fee Assistance. Thank the lordy.

    Really had no idea how adcoms would respond to my strange application, thus applied to WAY too many schools and went on WAY too many interviews. Oh well, I survived!

    Feel strange to be in the situation that I am in. Didn\'t expect this season. I plan to do revisits at WashU, Duke, Yale, and UW. Still thinking about Harvard.....but I think I\'d prefer to do this during residency.

    Considerations for me: I want to be happy. I want to buy a house with a yard for my dogs. I think program administration matters. I\'m interested in immunology. I\'m confident in my abilities so I\'ll do what I need to do to make my mark wherever i decide to go.

    Very happy with this season! Good luck to all.
