    Summary of Application Experience

    I applied twice overall (did not get in first round).
    First time was 2010-2011. Second was 2011-2012. Make sure to see my first application cycle by clicking the link next to my name for 2010.

    Same stats as before, but add the medical scribe work and more tutoring.
    This time I applied to more schools, but did not end up completing the secondary to UCSD, Northwestern, Columbia, Emory, or Pitt (and so these schools do not show up on the list below, even though I did apply to them and therefore help their admission stat %).
